Single Routine

Maybe I’m bad at being single, or maybe I’m just comparing my life to others, and I know that isn’t healthy, but I have this habit, and It is hard to get out of it.  I work all day, and I give my Job 200% every day.  So when I am finished, I tend to be wiped out.  My habit is to just come home and watch something on TV, or watch a movie, or browse the internet or YouTube or Social Media. It helps me chill out.

lately though I have been feeling like I wish I had friends who would go out with me after work to hang, play frisbee, get ice cream or get drinks or play games.  As far as I can tell most people do the same thing I do, especially if they are single, I’m sure my friends with spouses and kids think, ya lucky you. There is something really great about coming home after a long day of people and crazy to a quiet home where you know you can just relax and decompress.  I am grateful for sure, and at this point I have no intention of making any big strives to change that. 

So, no spouse, or kids to attend to when I get home its just me. I find that I am pretty unmotivated to even cook for myself sometimes.  It is so much easier to just pick something up quick after I get off work, though it is probably more healthy and frugal  if I cook.  


This week I decided that I needed to do something different. I decided I would forgo TV, and staring at my iPad or iPhone, in favor of listening to a book or doing a puzzle or spending a bit more time making dinner. I also have gone to bed a little earlier which isn’t a bad thing sense I need to catch up on some sleep. Ultimately I think it’s about putting intentional new habits into my after work routine.

Singleness Awareness day!

In the monkeys flying report today it’s February 15th , the day after Valentine’s Day, also known as singleness Awareness day. I have always been a fan of Valentine’s Day ever sense I was a little punk. I have always known it as the day that my awesome crazy mom would leave heart shaped candies and baked treats around the house to let us know how much she loved us. On that day she would also make us a valentine’s breakfast. It was always a yummy day. My mom will always be my favorite valentine. When every other single person is having a depressing day remembering that they are, “alone and unhappy,” I am most of the time content and glad to spend the 14th of February celebrating the fact that singleness is good and I’m loving it. As I write this, I am of course aware of the fact that, though I’m so great with just me, there is and always will be in me, a desire to share my life with a husband. I would like to be a wife and mother very much. And so, until that time, I will, wit…

“ Be Still and Know that He is God”

Today’s news Voices In My Head.
Ok I’m not crazy here, but there are very three distinct voices in my mind/head on a regular basis.  Our world especially this scientific culture that I live in would say there is something wrong with my brain.  I have heard these voices very distinct voices as far back in my life as 2 years old.  My voice, God’s voice, and the one that lies, the one that says I don’t measure up.  The one that says I need this that or the other to be happy or fulfilled.  
I haven’t always understood the distinction between the voices, the reason for that is sometimes the voices sound like four at once or fifty voices blaring in my head at the top of their lungs screaming for my attenchen the loud ones are usually the lies it is in those times that it becomes very hard to distinguish the three voices.  My voice gets confused.  
Here is the thing though, and I am not writing this from a I know it all perspective, because I don’t! I am also not writing this saying that this is…

Being in stillness

Sometimes, I think there is something in me that needs to just be in the moment.  I think, that I am regularly the type of person that tends to think of the future, or of other places, or of times in the past, I wonder about life, and God very often, about what he is doing, or what he has done, and I think I long for what he is yet to do.  So I spend a whole lot of time in thoughts.

There are times during the week where I find myself just being still in the moment.  In those moments, I can only take in the things I can sense.  Things that I can touch and feel, smell, hear and see. It's good to be still in those moments, it's good to just practice being there because, if I don't, then more of the time I tend to be filled with anxiety.

The stillness becomes a way to recharge and renew.  To be aware of the ever present presents of the Holy Spirit.
