Brief Humor & Check-Ins

Indie Author Updates: I Give You Poe (You’re Welcome)

In America, we’re in a government shutdown–the longest we’ve experienced in our young nation’s history. With paychecks halted, FBI workers are lining up next to White House employees to get food distributions at Food Banks. Somebody pinch me. Surely this is fake news, right? No, you insist, it’s not? Well then. Double irony for $600, Alex, and pass the potatoes. This sure is a surreal way to bring in 2019. And sad.

Well the saint and I debated, discussed, diatribed, dialogued and considered the benefits and annoyances of alliteration. We had laughter, pensive consideration and vigorous thumb wars.

Strive to Thrive (aka: A Self-Love Letter)

 

Received permission from the author to reblog this. Included some important reminders and lessons about self love and self care. And it has a Neverending Story reference. I’m sold! Enjoy, Arcians.

The Girl From Jupiter

People are a mess, aren’t we?

I mean, we try. We each do our best to survive the Monday,
to make it to the end of the year, year after year. But who wants to live a
life that’s all about surviving? It’s so much better when we strive to thrive.

(Did I just make up that slogan? Because I love it and would totally wear the t-shirt).

Thriving can be hard, though. Sometimes, really, really hard. We know what we need to do to live better, to be better people. But it takes a great deal of effort and consistency. Exercise more. Eat less. Read more, communicate better, and above all, love harder. Love your spouses, love your kids, love your neighbor, love yourself.

Self Love Collage

It’s that last one that throws people into a tailspin. What does that mean to love myself? Does that mean I’m not loving myself…
