I'm on a posting frenzy. All day, errday, my friends.

I just got home from counseling, so let's process. If you want.

We discussed my cynicism, creating new habits and thought processes. It was good. But my mind has moved on since then. This week, from different people, I've been told I'm hyper-mobile, hyper-aware, and hyper-sensitive... physically as well as mentally. What does that mean for a person? I feel like hyper-anything is bad.

The conclusion we came to in counseling is that my awareness of my issues is the best start, and from there I can actively break down habits and thought processes.

Ok, that didn't take long.

I dislike when people say they went to therapy, because therapy sounds really trendy. People on TV have therapists. It's real cool. This is just my point of view. I know that therapists exist, and therefore it's therapy. But... I prefer to say counselor.

I couldn't sleep last night, so I made cream of wheat. I felt like I was 10 again. I really wished we had marshmallows though.

Lastly, my friend told me she had a mantra about her body. It's this: vehicle to my dreams, instrument of my life. She said it's made her to push ups twice. I told her I liked it so much I was going to make it my own. I came up with this: bicycle to my dreams, cello of my life. Good, right?! I'm not serious.

I feel like people go to counseling/therapy and get all these mantras or phrases to live by. I don't really have those. Guess I'll come up with some. And if you have one, please post it in the comments so I can have it too.


  1. Uh oh. I got nothing in the mantra/phrase to live by department. I might be doing my job wrong...
    I love all your posts. It's like an exciting countdown to your baby even if that is not actually what it is about at all. Because of course you better keep posting after the baby :) Does that make sense?

  2. I like your posting frenzy. And your sense of awareness is a good has made me think about my unawareness. :)

  3. My mantra changes every time I read a good book.
    It wasn't until going to a child training class this summer, when I evaluated each child's tendencies against my own. I became aware of how sensitive I am to people's volume, temperature change in the room, clutter, physical pain or exhaustion, anything in the back of my mind that is not made right (like I'll have a subconscious heaviness until I pay a person back or respond to a text with a smiley face). Pretty sensitive gal. Anyway, not that that's what you asked me to share. My mantra this week is "Cease striving, and know that I am God." I'm such a stiver.
