The Winding Road from Christianity to Buddhism

It’s never been like me to call on a higher power. The closest I ever came was in the fifth grade when I shouted up at the sky angrily, “If you are real, now would be a GREAT TIME to do something!” I wanted to believe but it all felt like a fairy tale to me. For many years I was very conflicted over this, but as I grew up the feelings faded. Continue reading The Winding Road from Christianity to Buddhism

Neurodivergent Rebel – Learning How to Drive

I consider myself a mostly competent driver nowadays, but this wasn’t always the case. In fact, learning to drive was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. I needed my independence as a teenager.

I’ve never lived in a city where not having a car works. Even now, my job is several towns away from where I live. Learning to drive was the only way I could see myself getting the things I wanted – so I did it.

I had a bad habit of rear-ending people and backing-up into things when I first started to drive. My mother worried about me anytime I was out on the road (for good reason).

Now, at the age of 30, my main problem is “curb-checks”. Still a work in progress but better than I was yesterday. Continue reading Neurodivergent Rebel – Learning How to Drive

My Experience with Cafe Press

This past week readers on Facebook and Instagram asked if I had stickers with my logo for sale. The ones I had on hand were printed for personal use and I had not found a solution to sell them – yet.

I spent the weekend in a hyper-focused state, eyes glued to the computer screen as I dragged and clicked the items into place. Finally, after WAY too many hours in the same position, the Neurodivergent Rebel store was born!

Take Care of Yourself

“You look like you take good care of yourself.” – What a strange thing to say to someone.

Self care is the deepest affection that you can show to yourself.

Love yourself! Continue reading Take Care of Yourself
