Insomnia & Productivity

Insomniaaaa. Read that again with the Activia tune. In-Som-Niaaaaa. In a few hours the sun will be rising and I’ll be laying down attempting to get some sleep. I say attempt because it’s usually a hour or so and I wake, toss a bit, start a podcast or audiobook, and try to doze back off …

Confronting Time

Each day we are learning more and more about the effects of Time. We can’t replace it. It’s a gift. There’s no bargaining and it can’t be purchased. Time does its own thing. And guess what?! There’s nothing you can do about it. Well... there are a few things in respect to time. What are …

Rundown

Today’s rundown... it’s been one mentally engaging one. Before bed, my intention was to make today productive. Well, that definitely was the game plan and it was achieved. Morning coffee and quiet. Woke up tired so I don’t even turn on a tv or anything, only brewed a K-cup and sat at the bar. After …

Non-Morning Routine

Does it still count as a morning routine if I don’t wake up until almost noon? It’s morning somewhere, right? My days truly have been turned around. The time that I lay down to attempt sleep were the times I would arise early in the past to read a devotional, pray, sip coffee, and have …

The magnitude of the impact that he had on everyone in his life was undeniable. Everyone, I mean everyone, exclaimed how great and loving of a person he was. He …

It’s March

We are Marching into another month. I know people say this often but... time is really moving. it's wild because some days feel like they drag. At the same time, time seems to be progressing through the year fast. Sounds a bit contradictory but that's the feeling. Things still haven't progressed as quickly as I …

Pivot… Progress

It's one a.m.  It feels like I haven't written in ages. A lot has been on my plate and I'm not beating myself up about it. In the time that I've been away, my goals have pivoted a bit. In the tech realm, instead of working toward the practical dev ops cert, the course will …

Day 29 – Back on Track

I've been off my writing routine for a week or two now. It's been really easy to tell the difference, as I enjoy the expression but needed the break. Lately the goal was to take time to work through something while also putting more hours into work. Productive distraction. Things will get back on track …
