That Friday Feeling: The Beauty of a BuJo

Over Lughnasadh, I mentioned that I’ve found a way to balance my “real life” with my “spiritual life” using a Bullet Journal. My “real life” includes all those little tasks that are boring but necessary… like chores and a job, whereas my “spiritual life” is what I used to call all the little things I’m drawn to, including my creativity and my desire to help people.

The last few years, I’ve learned that those “real life” tasks are often in the category of “executive functioning skills,” and that is one of those areas where some people on the spectrum (myself included) struggle.

So what exactly are “Executive Functioning Skills?” And how can a bullet journal help?

Merry Lughnasadh: Face the Sun

Welcome to my favorite time of the year! I’m not quite sure why this holiday is my favorite. I looked back at a few of my previous Lughnasadh posts and it seems that it has a lot to do with what it represents: Lugh the Long-Armed.

For those of you who are part of the writing community on Twitter, first of all, Thank You!! Thank you for all your support that you give one another and being such an amazing example of what we can accomplish when we try to support one another instead of trying to tear each other down!

This past weekend’s #JustAddTea chat was all about celebrations, and while it did include how to use celebration in our works in progress (or WIPs, for those of you in the know), it began by emphasizing our own successes, both big and small.

Boy Update: A state of near panic

So, things have been busy in my “real” life. Really it’s only because I’ve become somewhat obsessed with my things.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’ve missed a post or two…

It’s also been a week or so since I’ve posted an update! There is a reason, and I’ll get to it later, but for now, just know that I think things are going well.  Continue reading “Boy Update: A state of near panic”
