Giving Thanks?

Next month, the month we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the United States, people will begin posting one thing every day that they are thankful for. This is an easy task. For the most part, you can just look around you and name one person or one item you see and be thankful for that. The hard part is being grateful for those same things all year long

Hand-In-Hand, We Fight On

I have been wanting to post a new Ménière’s disease video for sometime, however, the pure nature of this beast has prevented my making the next video in the series. I woke this morning after overdoing it yesterday and feel wretched, so, of course, will not get to do a video. However, commenting on various threads in some of the Ménière’s support groups on Facebook has led me to this article.
So often when we go through our bouts, we feel completely alone

You Are Still Here

There are times when people will come to visit me and days later, I can still feel their energy. This is not a negative thing, but then again, sometimes it can be.
Let me back up a bit. Every living thing emits energy

Clash Of The Americans

For many months now, I have remained virtually silent regarding the current political climate in the country I call home. This is not out of ignorance, neither is it some sort of sheepish action. I have had my television on and seen the program interruptions brought about by the state of affairs. I have seen the social media posts filled with memes and videos

Spinsters Are Us

As I was growing up, I was taught that girls who did not marry were considered to be spinsters or, as they are better known, old maids. My grandmother had two spinster sisters. I didn’t think less of them for not being married. Also, I do not recall anyone else ever having any derogatory things to say about either of them

Lest We Forget

The term ‘Lest we forget’ was a repetitive phrase used in the the 1897 Rudyard Kipling poem, Recessional. It was then later used by the British Commonwealth during Remembrance Day services following World War I. After World War II, it was rejuvenated by the United States regarding the bombing of the U.S

Everyone’s Doing It

More than nine years ago, self-proclaimed germaphobe, Howie Mandel went public with his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and sent celebrity-watching societies into a fist bumping frenzy.
The fist bump dates back to the 1800s boxing arena. At the beginning of a boxing match, the two contenders would meet in the center of the ring and hit their gloved fists together as a form of greeting. This action slipped into the Cricket world in 1990 when two batsmen in Australia met at the plate and bumped fists at the start of the game and continued to do so throughout the game

Erasing History

I have loved old things and history since I was a young girl being raised by my maternal grandparents. No one had to explain things to me or tell me why history should be appreciated, I just did. I would spend hours sitting on the floor looking through the saved issues of my grandparents’ subscription to The Good Old Days magazine. Through the years, going into an antique shop was just as fascinating and educational as going into a museum

Know You, Love You

 

In the dawning of a brand new day, I have a question for your ponderance: If I were to behave toward you the way you behave toward you, would this be a good thing? You don’t need to answer this question aloud. However, it might help you get a firm grasp on the gravity of the question if you do so.
self-esteem |ˈˌself əˈstēm|
noun
Confidence in one’s own worth or abilities; self-respect
Over the last five decades the term self-esteem has been thrown around very loosely and usually with regard to women. Edging into the 60s, women, more and more, sought a certain freedom

Stillness In The Mind

It is long that I have anticipated writing this post. In part for me and in part for everyone else.
To meditate is to focus ones mind for an extended period of time. Extended time does not necessarily mean hours or days
