Living

I have been on a break from blogging. I am learning to spend time alone with myself and be happy about it. I have found after years of always being in the company of someone ,children, other family members, friends, and neighbors, this is the hardest thing to do. This is a time when i can learn about my own strengths, weakness and insecurities, When I am out by myself often I feel uncomfortable, and self-conscious. Not knowing where to put my hands, and while not having anyone sitting with me to get lost in conversation with, and not knowing where to look. I have never just went to out to eat, visit a park or nature center ,by myself an this has been an adjustment for me.
Learning to be happy by myself is hard I have found. This is a time for me to learn to be happy by myself , if i accomplish this then I will not be dependant on anyone for my own happiness. Learning to be an observer, enjoying the beauty the world has to offer. Learn how to talk to myself and not look mentally lacking while doing it. Learning to distance myself from that negative inner voice. I have been trying my hand at photography. Missing my family like crazy. trying to get my health back, several times over the last three years I have almost left this earth, My sister says I have nine lives but she is not sure how many I have used.
I have moved hundreds of miles away from my friends and family, left my job I had been at for 10 years. Trying to find that inner and outer peace, get the stress down , so maybe I can get my health back and stay around for a few more years. Learning to like that daily text have you eat? what did you eat? because I am an adult with a BMI of less than 19. I often forget to eat, and now I am trying to fight that inner fear that I am going to end up with an ass the size of Texas if I eat daily, which I know is just stinky thinking.
The hardest thing for me is trying to realize and accept all my children are grown and responsible for their-self, trying to learn that I need to watch then fail and not try and prevent the failures in life, Trying to make sure before I leave this earth that they are all self supportive, and not dependant on me. some are mad at me because I told then it was time they got a job , that I was moving and they could not come with me.
Lately my life seems like it has come sort of full circle people from my past coming back into my life , so I can have the chance at making the wrongs ,right, Kinda makes one think that maybe god is getting, you ready to go.
I am going to try and write one blog post weekly to get back into things. try one new thing weekly. Until next time enjoy life, take care and much happiness.

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Argan Oil

Argan oil (Argania spinosa) referred to as “liquid gold.” from Morocco. When applied to the skin, pure Argan oil benefits prove to be both healing and anti-aging. Pure Argan oil is easily absorbed, and it regulates the pH balance of the skin, which in turn protects against sun exposure and other damage. It also reduces skin inflammation and thus helps control and reverse skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis while also diminishing scars.

The oil I have been using is physicians Formula Argan Wear, Argan Oil. I picked it up at CVS Pharmacy for $14.98. This is the best stuff it leaves your face feeling soft. You can add it to your foundation and apply it. You can use it as a facial moisturizer in the morning and at night. This will brighten your dull skin.

Then we went and spent some time, at the DHS office flaunting the many ways he provokes misery.

IMG_0823

First he just had to spread his misery to the co-workers. He had fun visiting their office and breakroom to spread the mucus. He would catch them in the hall and spread the misery.

He took a break and went to grab some lunch and spread his misery at pams snack bar
