Instructions for a Bad Day

January 9, 2014 2 comments

Having a bad day? Watch this. Come to think of it, watch it even if you’re not having a bad day. So much truth in it that we all need to work to hang on to; I know I had to work very hard to learn a lot of this and a reminder is always, always good.  I hope this speaks to you, and you can take in these truths. The second link is a video that displays the words.

Instructions For A Bad Day – Shane Koyczan Poem – Lyrics On Screen

Happy 1st Birthday Tales

October 5, 2012 25 comments

It has been a very long, sucky, painful day, full of misunderstandings and hurts, some caused by me, to my regret and some inflicted on me. (Yay!! While I was working on this, someone did an amazing thing and was vulnerable and we’re repairing it. Great now I’m going to short out my keyboard!) So I am more grateful than I can say to come here to my blog to celebrate a very happy milestone for me, and hopefully for some of you. 🙂 Tales of a Boundary Ninja is one year old today. This is my first blog and I was both excited and terrified putting up those first posts, not quite believing anyone would actually want to read what I had to say. Continue Reading

Come Closer by Anis Mojani

Another amazing poem by Anis Mojani. I love his metaphors; they just resonate so powerfully with me. This was the opening to TWOLHA‘s HEAVY and LIGHT  event this year in Orlando. I hope you find it as powerful as I did.

I especially loved “what beautiful battlefields you are” since it has been such a fight to be able to live my life fully. I loved even more the idea that we need to dance our way back to God.

And he said something I want to say to all of you: “I am like you, I am like you, I too, at times, am filled with so much fear” followed by “walk through this with me, walk through this with me.”  We do not travel alone and therein lies our hope and strength.

This is probably not a bad reflection of my attitude about medications as well as being very funny! Enjoy.

Is it Peace or is it Prozac? by Cheryl Wheeler

And another good one by her, which highlights the absurdity of how we think about ourselves.


NOTE: I am heading off on a two week vacation on Sunday for some sun, rest, relaxation, and hopefully lots of reading. My Kindle is brimming over with all kinds of treats. Having never been a vacationing blogger before, I am not sure how much it will affect my posting here, but just in case, didn’t want to worry anyone if I end up not being very active. Take good care all and see you soon!

There are two videos that I watch regularly because they remind me of all that is hopeful in humans. Our striving after life and connection that can be dimmed but so rarely extinguished. So when I need a lift or a warm fuzzy I watch one or both of these. Continue Reading
