I Respect Myself & Others

I Respect Myself & Others

If I don’t, who will? It all starts with me. My view on myself reflects outwardly and should be what others see. This is my goal. 🙂

April #WriteMotivation Update #2

Posted April 20, 2014 By LadyJai
The Sunrise BeforeThe Storm

The Sunrise Before The Storm

Happy Easter

I’m slacking on my Update posts aren’t I?! Oh well. 🙂

Still dealing with meeting deadlines at work, taking TheHubs to doctor’s appointments and the ER in hopes of some relief (nada). Absolutely no time to do anything really. I’m so exhausted. My positivity is wearing so thin, I’ve caught myself frowning when I wake up. Dreams have been so vivid and mostly on the bad side. At least my pain has let up a bit…or I’m just too exhausted to care?

Last weekend I actually took someone up on their offer! YAY! Go me! One of my friends from Cub Scouts, whom I really like and I still have on Facebook, offered to help me cook after a few random complaints I made about #kitchenfail! She planned, organized, and gave me a grocery list. I went shopping and last Sunday we spent all day cooking. Oh my poor feet! She originally said I’d have enough for 15 dinners. Um…after all is said and done, we looked at it and WOW! Probably more like a month to 5 weeks because she planned like she was planning her family’s meals. She told me, “I forgot you have half the people in your family than I do.” HA! So, yeah, I got FOOD and I don’t have to worry if I pulled meat out of the freezer,  trying to figure out what to make, standing there preparing and cooking, only to have a #kitchenfail again! LOL I hope we can do that again when the food stores get to dwindling. Since we’ve made all those dinners, we’ve only had 2 because of the pain, doctor visits, and ER visits.

I guess this weekend is taking care of the lawn, if the rain will let up. That picture up there at the top, that was Friday morning on my way to work. The pinks lasted all of a minute. Then the grey came in. We have flash flood and flood warnings. I am going to try to relax, catch up on TV, reading, and HOPEFULLY get back to writing! Seriously? Why can’t I do this?!!

April Goals.

  1. Read through my WIP. This is the first step to get back into the head of my MC and the world he lives in. I hope. So, not yet.
  2. Write words on WIP. Again, not yet.
  3. Keep up with blog posts for both blogs – this one and my Caring for My Vet. I have been taking part of the A to Z Challenge so that’s good. All posts are scheduled, and I have a guest post in process for May 4th. Don’t have anything planned yet for my Caregiver blog. But I posted something last week.
  4. Comment/cheer on my fellow #WriteMotivation peeps on Twitter, FB, Google+ and their blogs. With the A to Z Challenge going on, and my work and life issues, I’m seriously falling behind. 🙁
  5. Write motivational post for #WriteMotivation Been to a few blogs…not all.
  6. Continue with my positive thinking I think I’m doing good on this. But sometimes, when I’m really tired,  it is such a challenge.
  7. Read another book. Working through Insurgent

I don't quit!

I don’t quit!
Or rather, I try, really hard! 😀

While there have been long dry spells in some things, I really don’t quit anything I set out to do. The only thing I remember that I truly quit was when I was 5 and my parents stuck me in ballet. We rehearsed and by recital time came along and I couldn’t wear a tutu, well…I said I didn’t want to do ballet anymore. 🙂

There have been many instances where I’ve pushed things off to the side for a while…sometimes a real long while. But eventually I come back to them. I realized this when I remembered my dream of being a published author. 20 years I had forgotten. But I came back to it. I’m in a holding pattern again, but I’m constantly thinking about it. I just need to get back to it. There needs to be more hours in a day!

And when it comes to love and family and friends, I never give up!

I Try To Remain Optimistic

I Try To Remain Optimistic

This one is the *REAL* challenge. (In case you don’t know, I’m a wife, a MomMom, and a caregiver, while working full-time.) When everything happens all at the same time, you are bombarded with negative, you start to lose yourself, your way, your optimism. This is my life. I know the only way to get through to the other side is to seek out the positives and remember that tomorrow is another day. But some days are easier than others. My logical brain knows this. My logical brain understands that negativity kills. Positive thinking is the only way to survive. I learned this a long time ago when my husband was sent to Kosovo. I had an epiphany.

But, sometimes, my emotional brain overrules everything and I start to listen to the negative and start believing the lies it tells me. This is what happened to me recently. What got me through though is my determination to find those tiny bits of positives. It was hard. Sometimes I could not see them. But in the end, I managed. They are there. No matter if you see them or not. Have faith. Believe. And they will reveal themselves to you once again. (Here’s proof, from last year’s A to Z)

Love,

LadyJai

I'm a natural beauty

I’m a natural beauty

I don’t much care for make-up, never have. The only thing I put on, on occasion, is nail polish. Maybe a little lip tint. But I own no makeup. This goes along with my Genuine and “this is me” posts.

I am a good MomMom

I am a good MomMom

On those days when I think that I’ve totally failed as a MomMom, (you know we all do no matter how good we are), in the long run, I look back and realize just how good I truly was. I love my son with all my heart!

I’m Jamie. And I’m Awesome!

Building off my G and H posts, I present: Me! 🙂
I am unique in the universe. No one else can be me. I accept that. If you don’t like me, you’re missing out!

I'm Intelligent

I’m Intelligent

I think intelligence is sexy. I enjoy deep, meaningful, and intelligent conversation, with a little fun thrown in there too. Even if we don’t always agree, I can accept that and move on without resorting to the blame game or name calling.

I forgive easily

I forgive easily

While I forgive others easily, it is still very difficult for me to forgive myself. I suffer the guilt I put on myself that I need to overcome. I write about it on my other blog.

April #WriteMotivation Update #1

Posted April 6, 2014 By LadyJai
Clay County Fair from the Ferris Wheel

Clay County Fair from the Ferris Wheel

April Goals.

Same as last month since March slapped me in the face…and I have a feeling this month will be no better. Work has taken all my personnel away from me but I still have the same deadlines. All work is falling onto me and it always comes in all at once. So I have 5 major projects all going on at the same time with deadlines within days of each other. Yay, go me!

I’m already exhausted. And the HOA is starting their inspections. I can’t keep up with the cooking, cleaning, and now the yard work. Hubs is still bad off. We think he’s managed to spread the Botox outside where it needs to be. So his pain has been exacerbated. He did manage to power through a few hours at the County Fair yesterday, though. So that’s something.

  1. Read through my WIP. This is the first step to get back into the head of my MC and the world he lives in. I hope. So, not yet.
  2. Write words on WIP. Again, not yet.
  3. Keep up with blog posts for both blogs – this one and my Caring for My Vet. I have been taking part of the A to Z Challenge so that’s good. And, I’m currently in the middle of writing another post over on the other blog.
  4. Comment/cheer on my fellow #WriteMotivation peeps on Twitter, FB, Google+ and their blogs. Been absent because of work 🙁
  5. Write motivational post for #WriteMotivation Haven’t gotten to this yet.
  6. Continue with my positive thinking I think I’m doing good on this. But sometimes, when I’m really tired,  it is such a challenge.
  7. Read another book. Working through Insurgent
