Finding Calm in Chaos

That's exactly how I would describe our living conditions right now, pure chaos.

There are boxes stacked everywhere, every room is torn apart, a box truck is parked in the side driveway being slowly filled with our belongings and finding things has become like finding a needle in a hay stack.  Seriously the packing part of moving is the hardest and probably worst aspect of moving. Especially when the temperatures are soaring to 100. Other wise it might actually be fun to live somewhere new every few years. ;)

I don't mind moving different places, actually enjoy living in new area every so many years as it keeps things fresh and new.  Staying in one place would eventually bore me probably why I didn't settle down at an earlier age.  Still hope to one day to be living back at the beach again. As I just mentioned to the man I would very much like to do another cross country road trip, it's been way too long since my previous ones. He's never been on a cross country road trip before and it would be fun to do together.  Though I wonder what he would be like on an extended road trip without the comforts or technology he is so accustomed too.  Anyway back to the chaos of moving....

It's interesting because I find when my surroundings are in such chaos it affects the body. In fact there have even been studies done on this very subject,  and that living conditions in which everything is organized and not cluttered create calmer, peaceful homes.  I believe truly believe this to be true. As when things are disorganized and strewn everywhere it does have an effect on the body both mentally and physically.  

I try to remind the man he should be happy I'm such an organized, neat freak because it does help balance out a home. And it's not always something that comes easy, it can take a lot of work to create such an environment.  I find even just creating a routine, which sounds boring can help too. I'd say even our routines are off, in fact I haven't been able to work out in maybe two months which sucks as I had quite a streak going there! Think the yoga is what I miss most as it really did have some what of calming, centering effect.

Of course sometimes chaotic situations cannot always be resolved right away either, in those moments it's best to find a little space to create calm.  Such as right now that would probably be sitting on a chair on the patio surrounded by flowers, and when I need to just find my center I sit and meditate on those.  Truth is things are only going to get more chaotic so finding those calming moments is going to be even more important.

Pretty much every morning Cooper smells the flowers. He helps to remind me to appreciate the smalls things and be present in the moment.  Whenever I decide to sit down outside he usually comes over and sits on my lap.  Those are special moments in which him and I simply enjoy the beauty of nature together.  They bring me back to what truly matters in life.  Sometimes I wish the man could appreciate such moments more but he doesn't seem to love being outdoors or enjoying those moments in nature like Cooper and I do.

Einstein said it best "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."

Monday Musings

The weather is electrifying here, 98 with heat indices reaching 108!  Storms in the wee hours of the morning were loud enough to stir us awake.  And the weather forecasters say more could be on the way later. Might be the hottest summer we have at least had in a few years.  Surely not good weather for trying to pack and move.

Over the weekend the man seemed wiped out yet again, he was down right miserable to be around on Saturday as we tried to pack the truck we borrowed from my brother in law.  The truck he wanted yet had no interest in actually having to pack. In the past my family has helped more with packing then him so he really needs to get it together and step up this time around.  If he doesn't enjoy packing and moving does he really think everyone else does?

While he's great at telling others to use their brains hes not always so great at following his own advice.  Since there were all kinds of heat warnings posted common sense would be to get up early before the heat of the day and do the brunt of moving.  But instead he slept in, lounged around and by noon wasn't really doing a whole lot of anything. Once again I've basically packed up our entire house. Let's just say it felt like a very long weekend with an overly moody man. ha

Meanwhile, he brought up an interesting question. Why do I bother to blog if being on the computer only instigates the dizziness.  Honestly I ask myself that at times too as it would probably be much better if I just avoid it all together. It's not good for me that I know.  Yet I'm drawn to expressing myself here, my little journal of sorts I've created.  It helps to have a place to come to simply share whatever it is I'm thinking or feeling. I've never been good at holding things in, what good does that do?  Truthfully I'm probably too honest, open and talkative but it feels like the only true way to live.

The man is quiet, dislikes talking and not sure he will ever understand my level of openness. We are rather different.  He's like the outer edge of the earth and I'm more like the inner core if that makes sense.  Sometimes I wonder what is it the universe wants us to learn from each other?  As I'm a believer people come into our lives for reasons, not only to learn from each other but to help us grow into who we are meant to be. But there is lesson to be learned from everyone we meet, that I know.

Back to the computer thing though, I do try to avoid it as much as possible. On really bad days or weeks I have no choice but to avoid it all together.  Other days I try to do what needs to be done and get off quickly.  It's hard in this day and age to avoid it all together. What I miss most though is being able to read a book for hours.  After all these years the man still doesn't get that about me, before him and the dizziness I rarely watched tv...instead I preferred reading books.  Reading was such a passion of mine, though there are audio books they just don't have the same feel of a book.

On another completely different note. My cousin's husband recently found out that he has stomach cancer.  It's a very serious situation, since entering the hospital they have yet to even release him and it's not exactly the best of outlooks.  It seemed to come out of no where too, no signs that something might even be wrong. It's crazy how quickly life can change. They were celebrating their sons graduation from high school, his acceptance into college, looking forward to a bright future together as a family and now nothing is for certain. Then again is anything ever for certain in life?

It really puts life into perspective.  No one is guaranteed anything not even tomorrow, and if that's the case the bigger question to ask is....are we living a life that truly makes us happy or just going through the motions?  Are we spending our lives with the people that truly make us happy, who allow our hearts to truly open or are we settling for those we simply feel comfortable with?   Are we doing something everyday to help others or to make a real difference in the world?  Are we living our lives with passion and purpose?  Are we living each day in love or hate?

This quote speaks deeply to these very questions, "Tomorrow isn't promised to us. So live as if today is your last day on earth. Love like you've never loved before. Dream deeper than you've ever imagined you could dream. Experience all that your heart desires. If tomorrow you wake and everything still remains, at least your living now." but an even better quote to ponder this Monday....

Heat Wave Moving

We are once again officially on the move!

Normally I'm pretty good with this stuff, but right now it happens to be falling at not such a great time.  My brain is still struggling with the dizziness and intense head pressure that of course is made worse by strenuous exercise or lifting.  So my normal moving strategies or tactics aren't working so well. Even at only 98 lbs I can usually can accomplish quite a lot but the vertigo migraine stuff is slowing me down.

Pretty much am severely limited as what I can do this move.  Even taking just moving a few pieces of furniture to the truck, packing stuff and dismantling the kitchen table basically brought on the bad head pressure and dizziness sensations.  I won't lie it totally sucks.  As I could have at least had half the truck filled myself if it wasn't for it.

Think the man and I are both feeling completely overwhelmed by everything at the moment. Between making settlement on the new house, figuring out who to hire to help us move, planning for a wedding, packing and on top of that the man is busy at work too.

Oh yeah did I mention there is a heat wave going on here.  Temperatures are soaring into the high 90's combined with the oppressive humidity it feels well into the 100's!  That's not good for anyone's body or health.  Plus in anticipation of the move we sold two of our window units, so are only working with two at the moment one in the living room and one in bedroom so the rest of the house is rather hot.

I'm trying to keep up my normal pace but my brain needs more relaxation right now.  The best days have been sitting chilling with my nephew, it keeps me away from the computer, phone and allows me to enjoy the simple moments of life with him.  When my sister goes back to work wish she would let me take care of him as it would be so amazing.  But my mom's company got sold so it looks like she may actually leave her job to care for him. Crazy how things work we finally move close enough where I am able to help my sister and now my mom may not be working so she can too.

Life sure is crazy sometimes.  The never knowing, the ups and downs, even the suffering along the way which only makes you appreciate the good times even more.  Can you tell I've been back to my pondering ways again.

Anyway back to moving, not sure how it's all going to fall into place but here's hoping it some how does.  And that mother nature can some how break this heat wave to allow for dry weather, with temperatures in the 80's and low humidity to return.  Please, pretty please. :)

Oh yeah and just when I needed a little inspiration, found this on pinterest!

Monday Musings

It's been real hot and humid here, we are talking heat indices in the 100's.

The weekend was busy, and filled with fun.  A family party at my cousins on Saturday.  The man and I spent Sunday with my sister as people toured our house. Getting to see my niece and nephew two days in a row was not only awesome but special!

We've been trying to avoid the news as what's going on in the world is just to much to handle some days.  When will our world ever understand we are all essentially one, how do we get people to unite and truly work together to change things for the better?

I'm tired of all the political bashing posts on social media as well.  It's one thing to announce who you are supporting another to act like an immature bully about it.  Everyone has their own opinions, bashing others, inciting violence isn't going to lead to anything but more hate and trouble. People have to learn to respect others opinions and move on.  Anyway....

Still a lot to do, and it's only going to increase for a while.  Given we just moved into this place last year another move right now seems daunting.  Cleaning, painting, packing, unpacking...the thought of all that leaves me feeling stressed. ha

My brain is still not reacting to the computer or even my smart phone well so I'm not going to spend much time on here.  Even just looking at the screen for a few minutes is sending me into that dizzy sensation. Think the intense heat and humidity has really been taking a toll as well. Remember that Seinfeld episode....serenity now. That's pretty much what I feel like yelling.

Later gators time to rest the brain!

Our Lives Are Measured in Love, Not Numbers

I some how stumbled upon this beautifully written post on social media by Katie Jensen and felt the need to share on here. It resonated in such a profound, beautiful way.


Our Lives Are Measured in Love, Not Numbers

“In the end, these are the things that matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?” ~Buddha

Last year my yoga teacher told a story in class about Hanuman, an ancient Hindu god depicted as a monkey. When asked what he was devoted to, Hanuman opened his chest and there were Sita and Ram, sitting on his heart, always with him. He was their greatest devotee.

The story stuck with me.

“What do I hold closest to my heart?” I asked myself quite often, and I was not getting the answer I wanted. Where was the dream I held close to my heart? Was I truly devoted to love, joy, and peace, or just appearing to be?

What I observed was that numbers subtly defined my life.

Numbers. Money, time, days until, days since, age, weight, calories, date, GPA, mile time, social media likes, followers, lovers, breakups, countries visited, height, miles driven, time left, time passed, books read, books to read, miles run, seconds in a handstand.

I felt like I was living a quantitative life.

I enjoy math and I think science is fascinating. Numbers have so much to offer the world, but they should not be playing a role in how we measure the value of our lives.

Numbers are everywhere, and they offer us an opportunity to look at the decisions we are making. Numbers can help us set goals, assess our progress, and recognize areas for growth.

There is so much that can be measured in numbers, but this realization offered me an amazing insight.

Often, a number cannot define what matters most. It has to be expressed with words and felt with the heart.

Laughter. Connection. Love. Organic, raw experiences. Spontaneity. Forgiveness. Adventure. These are all things that numbers cannot distinguish.

As a human, it does not matter how old I am; my age is irrelevant if I am happy.

As a twenty-four-year-old, it does not matter how many relationships I have had that did not work out.

What matters is that I am willing to feel and open my heart to another person. That I am willing to learn and make mistakes and be grateful for all that has come out of the relationships I have been in. What matters is whether I have been able to forgive others and myself for the mistakes we have made.

As a traveler, it does not matter the number of countries I have visited.

What matters are the experiences I have collected under my belt that become the keys to unlock doors I may encounter in the future. What matters are the genuine connections I have made, the laughter I have shared, with people twenty years older and twenty years younger, who speak a different language than me.

As a social media participant, it does not matter how many likes I get on a photo. What matters is if I am using social media as a platform for authenticity, connection, and positivity.

As a yoga teacher, it does not matter how many people come to my class. What matters is that my students walk away feeling light and love.

As a runner, it does not matter if I run for twenty minutes or two hours. What matters is the intention of treating my body as my home, where I live and doing my best to take care of my home.

As a yogi, it does not matter how long I meditate or can hold a handstand. What matters is union, my breath connecting my body with my mind.

As a woman, it does not matter how much I weigh. What matters is that I feel healthy. Health is a state of wholeness, happiness, and vibrancy in all aspects of our lives—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

The point is not to eliminate numbers, but to be aware of the purpose that they serve.

Celebrate birthdays. Make countdowns. Set goals. But don’t fall into the habit of defining yourself by your numbers, or comparing yours to someone else’s. Two lives can be equally valuable with completely different sets of measurements.

Within every human there is a place that is love in its purest form. This is where we store the wishes we place upon pennies before tossing them into fountains. It’s the place where we hold memories that make our eyes sparkle and our hearts beat with joy. The place inside us where we dream big and without fear. It is a love for ourselves and a love for all that is.

If there is anything that defines us, it is this love.

Most importantly, numbers are not necessary to define this present moment. We don’t need any math to appreciate the moment we are in right now. Everything is simply as it should be.

Soul Torn Desires

We all have innate soul desires, things in which when we do or are surrounded by them our souls feel alive, enlightened and complete.

Mine in no particular order are small beach towns, the ocean, exploring and traveling to new places, flowers and gardening, being outside in nature, animals especially dogs, coastal/rustic decor, vanilla flavored anything, creating, reading, helping others, kayaking across still lake, collecting shells, running even though I can't seem to partake in it anymore, affection I may in fact be a kissing fiend whose passion can't be quenched, sunny days, pastel colors, deep conversations, lounging under star filled skies, camping in scenic places, cape cod style homes, sensitive men, romance, candle light, dancing to good music, unconditional love, enthusiasm, passionate people, yoga. Given it's almost bed time I'm probably forgetting some too.

Lately I think what's really hard about buying a home and getting married is feeling like some of my innate soul desires may have been put on a back burner.  There's a fear that they may remain there, and if they do am I really living an authentic life?  Or settling for one that feels simply comfortable?

I mean sitting on the couch watching tv is comfortable but is that really the purpose of life? Are we really meant to just zone out on our phones or other such meaningless things?  Think there's more to life than any of us take the time to explore or learn.  My mind has just been wandering a lot lately.

For instance if we buy a home in the area, will I ever follow my heart back to the beach?  What happened to holding out for a Cape style home?  Will the ways in which the man and I are different eventually lead to a stalemate?  What about the dizziness will it continue to stand in the way of my true passions? Will I once again be able to hit the road for my favorite cross country travels? Should life, love or even work be easier than it is?  Maybe it's all the life changes, or stress I've been facing but lately feel like I'm really beginning to ponder life and see things more clearly than ever now.

The most important question is can I incorporate more of those innate soul desires into every day life?  Yet can I afford not to?

Essentially we must all decide what it is that truly makes us happy.  It's more than just what though it's with whom, where, how and so on.  We must keep asking until our soul feels the answers come alive from within.  It's up to us to create, to bring to life and live those soul desires.

And so those soul desires are leaving me rather torn, maybe it's a middle of life crisis or something but I want more out of life than my soul is experiencing or feeling lately, or even has been for awhile. Maybe the waters became a tad too stagnant, repetitive or maybe the waves became too rough to want to even surf.  Whatever the reasons I need to figure out a way to experience, feel and incorporate more of those soul torn desires into daily life.

Monday Musings

Hard to believe but it's been four weeks since I wrote a Monday Musings post.  It doesn't feel like that as things seem to be moving rather quickly lately, and feel like I'm barely staying on top of everything.  Not to mention the weather has been sweltering, we are talking heat indices of 100. While it cooled off briefly this weekend, they are saying it will once again heat up!

I wrote a little post the other day but only my emotions got the best of me.  Seriously was so fed up with some of the biased and inaccurate reporting. In fact, the man and I always watch the news before bed but we decided to boycott the news as we were just so fed up with the coverage and bs.  We live in Philadelphia a city in which people have to deal with violence, crimes, murders, drugs, gangs, etc everyday and let me tell you there is no protesters shutting down highways to protest all the innocent lives taken by such things. More lives are lost to those things mentioned above than to police brutality.  And that's all I'm saying on that for now.

As I mentioned the vertigo migraine stuff has been flaring up rather bad.  Even went to see the doctor though she had little help to offer.  She feels all the stress of the past few months probably brought on a flare. Stress can be so detrimental to any health condition so it's no surprise.  And when it comes to life it's rather hard to avoid stress.  Sure my indecisive nature, and doubting ways don't make it any easier either.

What surprised me the most is I was trying hard to keep to a work regimen of walking, yoga and even lifting free weights.  Figured all that combined would help my body work through any stress but guess even the stress was too strong to simply be warded off by working out.  What sucks is the worse the flare up became I had to curtail some of the working out, life sure can be tricky sometimes.

Think the most stress as of late has come from the home buying process.  And for me someone who rather fears commitments and likes to be in control it's even harder.  Just making that kind of commitment scares me, the fear of better options always seems to kick in.  Not to mention the what if stuff.  What if there is a better house out there, what if we could have negotiated an even better price, what if we picked a different area, what if we had moved to the beach.  Seriously I could find a million what if's when it came to anything including even getting married. Honestly even just saying I'm not fond of commitments is probably a gross understatement. If I had to guess it was just something I was born with as feel like I've been this way since the wee days of my childhood.

And I'm equally worse when it comes to making many big decisions.  Literally I can't  even decide what kind of wedding band to get after months of browsing.  Think these sides of me become more pronounced when having to make big purchases or spend money.

But putting all the stressful stuff aside I just want to feel good again.  The pressure in my head has been unbearable, the medicine they gave me doesn't even really make a dent.  The pressure of course causes my whole brain to be out of whack including the the whole dizziness thing.  Basically it's like having a constant migraine but with intense pressure that makes you feel like the brain is literally going to explode. It's been causing such dizziness attacks that working on the computer has become impossible.  Think what my body needs is to just rest and relax. Feel like a vacation to the shore is much needed.

The best days lately have come when I spend them with family, especially my nephew and niece. Just hanging out with them and relaxing has been the highlight of the summer so far.  I find holding my nephew so relaxing and soothing.  I don't even mind when he cries. He is so amazing.  We've all been having our dresses altered, shopping for wedding accessories and even had a small family fourth of July picnic.

The man has been kind of boring this summer, not sure if it's the heat or work but he is exhausted. Which of course make him want to do nothing but lounge on the couch more than take on the town. Personally his lounge personality is too moody and quiet for my tastes, like him much better when he we are doing stuff as hes more talkative and upbeat.  Plus it's summer, feel like if I can't get him to partake in some fun adventures he will sooner be hibernating and blaming it on winter.  I seriously have more enthusiasm and passion than he will ever comprehend. ;)

Plus when I hang out with my family I'm not using the computer or looking at my phone which have been instigating the whole brain stuff too.  Smart phones are rather bad not sure if it's the screen or the small screen but it can create havoc.  Problem is with all the wedding planning I've had to be on the computer way more than normal and think that also contributed to setting off the flare up as well. It's very hard in this day and age not to use the computer or smart phone as feel like our world revolves around technology. Even just editing or developing photos involves computers these days.

Anyway, just feels like I'm babbling above though not even coming close to reflecting all the deeper thoughts that have been filling my mind in the wee hours off the morning, when sometimes I lay awake simply pondering life, choices and wondering if we ever truly have a choice or is there a certain amount of pre determination or destiny to the decisions we make?

Yeah I need to write more about all those deeper thoughts....

United We Stand

Does anyone remember these words in the Pledge Alliance?  United we stand...those words seem to mean little now. 

Everyday the news is filled with horrifying violence...when will it stop?

When will the people of this country and world unite against crime, violence, drugs, gangs, guns, injustice and most of all follow the law.  One wrong doesn't justify another wrong, and it certainly won't bring the change people and especially these protesters seek.  And when did following the law become such a hard concept for so many?

One can't even drive these days without others going way above the posted speed limit. Seriously people just seem to think they are above and beyond the law.  No one seems to think they should have to follow even the simplest of rules and laws set down by our country.  

Sure there may be corrupt police, just like there are corrupt politicians, educators, religious figures, criminals,etc.  For every good person there seems a corrupt one, and if we don't start calling out the corrupt ones nothing will change.  But we need to have all the facts straight when deciding to call them out or protest.

For instance there was an interesting study done, and article published on it back in 2015 in which it was found that police actually kill more whites than blacks. But that minority deaths generate more outrage. Read here for more on the study....http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/21/police-kill-more-whites-than-blacks-but-minority-d/

What's crazier is more blacks are killed by blacks, a whopping 97% according to the USA Crime Statistics of 2015.  Yet we hear little of such statistics. Or how about the constant shootings in just about every major city in the United States that seem to occur on a daily basis?  We can't pick and choose what we focus on and protest when it comes to violence, all of it must be called out and dealt with. 

Not sure about other cities but everyday there are shootings here, innocent lives taken due to the violence of the streets, yet no one protests these brutal slayings.  In fact, more times than none they generate little outrage.  Every city and town in this country is dealing with violent criminals these days.  Yet no one protests against the very thugs who are causing it. Or the very drug dealers and gangs who are slowly taking our innocent youth.  Or how about creating harsher penalties and consequences for those violent offenders.  As often times prison is a better environment than the lives they actually live outside of it. 

Right now this country is in the middle of an election year where even the politicians running are known for their corrupt ways, lies, dishonesty,etc....yet we as a country do nothing?  We let those people who lie and are corrupt continue to run for office. Gasp...we even support them?  If we want a fair and just country we must intelligently and fairly fight to obtain that.  But not by using violence, nor bullying, labeling, calling names, dividing by race or even sex but by uniting against those who do wrong and creating a world where right rules and wrong is actually punished. 

We have to each be the change we want to see in the world.  We each have to live by higher standards, morals, virtues, work ethnics, etc, and except nothing but those same standards from our leaders as well. We have to stand constantly united against the evil of this world if we want good to prevail. We have to each be willing look openly and honestly at what we even might be doing to contribute to the issues and problems of this country. We have to be willing to compromise, truly listen and love each other unconditionally. 

Until everyone, of all races and sexes, understands that all lives matter....nothing will change.
