Tummy troubles

Tummy troubles

Don’t know about anyone else, although I suspect there may be a few of you. But my digestion woes seem to correspond directly with my anxiety or stress levels. It’s like the gut reacts to my worries by giving me a brand new one to deal with. I mean, this had me so messed up that I had nearly convinced myself that I may have cancer at one point. Really, stomach? That’s what you want for me.  But yeah, really….

Lost in the middle somewhere

Lost in the middle somewhere

The end of the day brings a sense of safety sometimes. Nighttime protects all. Shrouded under the veil of darkness we can take refuge and sanctuary from the days and all that inhabit it. The weekend is even better, because there are even less inhabitants and the shut down can occur easier in the guise of rest. Monday can wait, the mind has spoken.

Reality is now

Reality is now

What do you say about the life you find yourself in at this present moment. Do you like it? Do you wallow in self-pity, do you rage against the machine, do you sit in quiet acceptance like the condemned man after speaking with his priest? Well, do you? For me personally at this moment, (because as you know it can change day by day) I would like to think that I’m in an everything is possible kind of mood. You…

Eating for 1.5

Eating for 1.5

We all do it, we all let our guard down and submit to our cravings. Those impecable sugary slices of doom and pestilence that caress our tongues only to go beserk in our gut. The health kick often escapes us at some point over a fairly regimented week surely to be replaced by the diet and meal plan of an 18 year old student with a 50% off voucher for Dominos. So then, we eat. We eat each morsel like…

Goodnight to those encumbered

Goodnight to those encumbered

I really mean it. If you are carrying things that do not make your life better, then I understand how tough the days or nights can be. Defy the negative thoughts, destroy the pitiful sorrow and turn your back on those that mock. You are here, you are now and because you attempt to do better every day means you are entirely able. Good luck and good night fellow fellows. The morning brings something new to us all.

Hail, sleet or snow

Hail, sleet or snow

You have to take sides once and a while. The fence is too narrow to sit on for too long. I mean, when you know you are right can you just stay silent or should you step up to the plate and digress. Anyway, wooden fences can give you splinters up the arse. Come hail sleet or snow I if anything have my principles and nothing will sway me if I feel that I am right. Now dont get me…

Woke inside a dream

Woke inside a dream

Sunday arrived all nondescript and such. Seems to be it’s style these days. I feel I may have slept off yesterday’s worries, which is a plus. Preparing now to head off on a family day out. Yes, a pep talk talk might trigger some good feelings to start this day proper. Might write a draft for this talk first, you know, do things right. I’ll let you know how I get on. Now where’s my thesaurus?

Little deuce coupe

Little deuce coupe

Have this song in my head all morning. It’s the Beach Boys though, so has to be a good thing, right? Anyway feeling ok after a small few beers last night. No hangxiety as they say. Although stomach is gurgling like I had an undercooked meal though. Bloody anxious stomach. Begone,begone.

Friday follows Thursday

Friday follows Thursday

Yes, it Friday. I feel good, I am sitting at my desk in a very quiet office as everyone has left for the day and I can be alone with my thoughts. They are good uns by the way. All positivity shrouds me right now and I am feeling like I can accomplish much. Now, as I said it is Friday and I don’t have to drive tomorrow, so I was thinking of having a few drinks at home with…

Broken but not stirred

Broken but not stirred

First thing this morning as I was heading down the small road that leads to the turn off on the main road as I was leaving for work I started to notice a metal grating sound coming from under the car. When I got out and looked underneath, I saw that the exhaust was hanging off. So after waiting for the nearest garage to open, popped it in and now I await its repair. Now normally this could send me…
