It’s been a ridiculously long amount of time since I last did a Ten Things of Thankful (TToT) post. Since I treat Calculated Chaos like my online diary, broadcasting all kinds of nastiness to the world, TToT, in my opinion, is a much-needed reprieve from all the negative crap that I need to vent about. It gives me a chance to focus on the good — or even justĀ find the good, at times; I am always grateful for that. (Thankful #1) The handsome husband refers to it as my “My husband is so sexy & handsome & awesome” posts (or something to that effect) because he is one of the “things” I am grateful for the most often. Haha. šŸ˜‰

I’ve been in somewhat of a foul mood lately. . . I wanted a post that would allow me to vent some of my frustrations in a semi-positive (although, perhaps, unorthodox?) way. SO, I present to you “WISHES,” my small “wish list” of sorts, fashioned from some of my frustrations of lately. Then, towards the end, is “INTENTIONS,” taking aĀ moment to reflect back on the On Purpose series I temporarily abandoned during my recent month-long unscheduled hiatus from Calculated Chaos. . .

I am going to keep this short & “sweet,” in the interest of just gettingĀ somethingĀ posted since it has been weeks since I last participated in Ten Things of Thankful. . . Please forgive me for not putting forth more of an effort this week. . . Sometimes just gaining some momentum is a necessary thing. So, in no particular order. . . (more…)

Wondering: If I will ever actually need a jacket again. . . (more…)

I started a few weeks ago, then took an unscheduled hiatus. Thought I’d try again. . .

Take a little mental trip with me. . . A few random thoughts. . .

Life is hard. It is messy & intense & crazy. . . & beautiful & downright magical. All you have to do is look around to find some of its magic. . .

Yesterday, asĀ the handsome husband I were having a little chat, we came to a realization. .Ā .Ā There are so many little things that just added up into this perfect, magically BLESSED moment.

Let me attempt to explain:

Everyone needs an outlet. . . Something they enjoy that lets them blow off some steam or get their thoughts organized or whatever. One day, I’d like to be more active on a regular basis & maybe that’ll turn into one of my outlets. In the meantime, writing hereĀ is what does that for me. You can’t even imagine the extra peace of mind it gives me to just get my thoughts out of my head for a bit. Hopefully there’s a few people who don’t mind reading it!

As an extra boost of motivation to post more regularly and as an opportunity to meet a few other bloggers (& maybe even form a few online friendships), I came across a few link ups that I thought I might enjoy on a regular basis. Today, marks the first on the list: My Happy Monday, hosted by Sarah of My (Mostly) Healthy Life.Ā
