Ohh So Beauty-Fall

I am always in love with our Fall foliage colors, its ohh so Beauty-Fall!

We went to Orillia, ON to watch Kenny G in concert at Casino Rama.

The next day, I knew that I wanted to explore our surroundings and just immerse myself in mother nature’s beautiful creation.

The leaves on this tree are so magnificently radiant and as I stared at it, it made me oh so happy just to be there in the presence of beauty.

Summer is my favorite season, but fall, well just look how gorgeous it is.

Every fall I promised myself I will drive up north and see the foliage and so far I have kept my word.

Such simple things as this picture lift my spirits.

I hope that you take time to do simple things in your life that make you happy and that puts a smile on your face and gives you time for self-reflection.

I hope you slow down and do things that you really love, no matter what people think or how weird it is.

As long as it brings you joy, that’s all that matters.

Kenny G! Concert – Oct 25th 2019

I had the best weekend ever Friday, October 25th.

I really wanted to post right away, but got so busy.

October 25th was Kenny G day. Everyone on my team at work, (there are 13 of us) knew that I was going and boy, the teasing went on forever!

They said I was so nerdy for wanting to see a Kenny G concert, and I’m like YEP, that’s right I’m seeing him and I said that loudly with a clear and concise tone as best as I knew how. (If you know me, well, it was pretty loud)

I had such an amazing time at his concert, there were even times I literally got teary-eyed. I was hell happy, oh my God.

You see, for those who don’t know me. I love to write and when I write, be it for school or writing a card, or creating this post, it is his music that gets me through it.

When I am sad, it’s his music that soothes me.

No other music can make my words flow, like Kenny G.

My mind checks out into a place that it is just me and my words and his saxophone.

My fingers fly fast and hard on the keyboard and before I know it, I have created something that I am proud of.

Creation of expression and emotions. A creation of what is in my head that’s laid out to share for all to read.

Kenny G’s music makes me so happy and when he played his saxophone, I was overwhelmed with happiness!

He was so amazing!

There were so many people of different ages and everyone was having such a great time and I was totally on cloud #9.

Thank you to my hubby who actually didn’t fall asleep and who put up with my excitement even throughout the night when the event ended.

And lastly, thank you to my friends at work, who I knew even through all the teasing, they were happy to know that I was seeing my Kenny G!

I’m hell happy right now.

Don’t Believe Everything You Think

I read that “The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about ”

Today is October 10th.

It is World Mental Health Day.

I have struggled for many years with depression and not many people knew that.

I laugh a lot

I sing always

I whistle loudly at work in the washroom and in the staircase, because it sounds more beautiful in those areas

I take many happy pictures

I hug my dogs a lot

I talk & sing to them on a daily basis

Once in awhile when my children passes by me

I like to  touch their arm for a quick second

Or hold their hand

Just to feel a connection without words

I write and do a lot of thinking

I’m a deep person

These are all my good days

My bad days

I want to be invisible

I don’t want to see anyone

I can’t laugh

I can’t love

I don’t want to wake up

I want to sleep

I want to turn off all the lights and be in the darkness

Alone

I hate myself

I’m worthless

I’m not enough

For anyone

For myself

My body is numb

And I cry at 3am and wonder why I’m crying

I look at my food and I cry

I look at family and I hold it in

Now I’m better

I’ve never felt stronger in all my life

The self awareness I have is amazing

The self love I have blows me away

I look in the mirror and I love myself

I seek those who bring joy to my life

I have people who get me

People who understand me

I sought professional help

And I am better

So much better

I believe in myself

And I have accepted all that’s meant to be in my life

And pushed aside all things that are triggers and stressors

I have found my happy place within myself

And when I feel like I’m slipping

I tell myself I Am ENOUGH

I’ve learned to be gentle with myself and am living the best way I can

I no longer believe everything I think.
