So This is What Schizophrenia Feels Like

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/10/18/daily-prompt-incredible/

Today’s prompt was to describe what we do when we receive incredible news. This pretty much sums it up for me: Freak out excitement, then doubt. I also wrote about this in last night’s post: Daring Greatly.

 

Lori's Life and Other Stuff

I love to write. While I doubt I’ll be selling the next New York Times best seller anytime soon, (at least while the littles are still little), I do enjoy having a creative outlet and and entertaining the 3 people (including my parents) who think I’m “just the best”.

Recently, I was contacted to write for another blog. Words that I put into sentences, for people to read. For compensation. Really!? I think my head might just pop right off my neck. Excited doesn’t even begin to express how I am feeling. More like pee-my-pants-while-simultaneously-doing-in-the-air-heel-clicks!

Trepidation and Encouragement

On Tough Mudder eve, I'm feeling nervous. Like every new race, I'm always nervous. Anxiously reviewing the list of preparations, questioning whether there was enough training, enough sleep, enough nutrition....the list goes on and on. I have never regretted trying new things. Ever.

Wonderful Wednesday: Random Gratitude

There are many things I'm grateful for this week. Here's my list: 1. Recovery. After running the Whidbey Island half marathon on Sunday, I was hobbling around like a 98 year old! Today, while still a bit sore, I'm feeling more like myself. 2. Workout Accountability Working out gets done when there is accountability. I am so … Continue reading Wonderful Wednesday: Random Gratitude

Wonder Full Wednesday: Perspiration to Inspiration

I am never more alive then when I've just completed a workout, I'm sweaty and what I like to call "all wrung out". For some reason, I'm never more clear, more focused and more sure of myself as I am when I am doing something physically strenuous. More often than not, much of my writing inspiration … Continue reading Wonder Full Wednesday: Perspiration to Inspiration

Ripples

With the onset of fall, the upcoming hustle and bustle of the Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas hoopla, I'm feeling a bit nostalgic about our life (and weather) in Hawaii. There is much I do not miss about life in Hawaii, but when I'm freezing my tootsies off in the pacific northwest rain, wearing warm boots and still cranking … Continue reading Ripples
