I love crayons!
Seriously, I really love to use crayons. The feel, the smell, the color, the texture, and how I can just let go and let the colors glide across the page taking me into a meditative place. I feel a small sensation of peace when I color.
That’s why I always buy a pack or five when back to school sales start popping up in July – August in my area.
I love to color!
It doesn’t matter if I stay in the lines, it’s my book or paper, it doesn’t matter if the colors blend or stand out. It doesn’t matter if I put them back in any order or in the original box. I usually do use the same box though.
The only thing that does matter to me when I take out the 8, 16, 48, 72, or more count box, is that I allow myself to just feel. I let go and allow life. That’s how it is for me to color. It was the same when I was a kid too, love to color.
What are your feelings about crayons, coloring, life?
P.S, Crayola crayons have always been my favorite.

It’s hard to write a positive post when you’re not feeling positive.
It’s taken me all day today and a conversation with a friend to realize that not feeling or being positive is okay too.
It feels weird though to not strive to be happy and up every day. It seems that there is this unwritten rule in society that states you have to always be happy. Well to me that is not normal and I’ve always fought against how I feel so that I can be happy even if happy was not how I was really feeling.
I’ve started to realize too, that it’s okay to not even want to be happy. It’s okay to feel unhappy, sad, depressed, and even angry. I’m learning to feel how I feel in the moment and then release it so that I don’t hold on to emotions that are not serving me well.
I feel like I’m kind of rambling right now so I’ll end the post here. I hope that someone can relate to this the same as I do. At least relate to the concept of not always being happy.
Have a good evening (or not) 🙂

When I set this challenge up for myself to write 28 positive posts this month I thought it was going to be easier. It’s a definite challenge for me. I’m in a content mood but not necessarily a positive one.
I am, however, determined to post a positive post today. 🙂
So I decided to snag a positive quote from a Google search.
It is my sincere hope that this helped you today.
Have a great Wednesday.

Hahaha…I just re-read yesterday’s post and realized that the title read Positive P!
Oh, my. It was supposed to read Positive Post #5. Good thing I’m not getting paid to write these posts. 🙂
It really made me laugh today though and I needed that laugh today. A lot of ups and downs just since the First week of February. I’m rolling and flowing with life though so I’m pushing through and staying committed to this 28 days of positive posts on my blog.
Today I’m watching my 18-month-old nephew while his parents are at work. He brings out the happy every time. I enjoy watching him as he plays, learns, and interacts with his world. It’s not all happy and laughter though because he can throw some wicked fits when he gets upset. As is true really of anyone.
I’m amazed when I watch him as he goes through his day. Amazed because of how real his emotions are and he expresses them when he feels them. Then I wonder why we all do not practice the same thing. Expressing our emotions when we feel them. I think it would be freeing if we did. Of course, you have to know how to express them so that you’re not going overboard but I feel that if we all did this toddler feeling of emotions thing, then it wouldn’t go overboard. We would know how to express what we are truly feeling at the time we are feeling it. And it would happen in a natural and organic way.
So today I feel amazed at how much I can learn from my 18-month-old nephew.
That is all.
Have a great Day.

Making healthy decisions equates to having a good day. Just my opinion of course but, I feel that today is a turning point for me in my life.
I’m tired of feeling tired all of the time. So today, I’m making better decisions to remedy that situation/feeling/thing.
Choosing better foods.
Making a better schedule. Although mine does have entries in it. 😉
And determined to follow through because I now feel that I deserve to be healthy.
p.s. I’m getting back into exercising again. This time Health is my goal not a number on the scale.
Have a great Monday!
