The Art Of Caring Less And Appreciating More…

Today, I came across an article on Facebook that really resonated with me. It was by someone who didn’t believe in pressure and limitation of New Year’s Resolutions, and just wanted to be a happier individual that didn’t obsess over things that really don’t matter that much. So, instead of creating a bucket list, she […]

I’m Still Here….

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been around much for the past 6 weeks or so. Perhaps you didn’t notice, and I give myself more credit for having consistently interested readers than I deserve. *laughs* In any case, I haven’t been around the blogosphere too much. I’m not sure why, other than I have […]

What’s Alayna Been Doing Lately?

Of course, I’d like to open up my blog post today by linking you to a blog that discusses one of my all-time favourite topics: me.*laughs* While I’m perhaps not quite *that* egocentric, I did enjoy the interview that the lovely Megan Cashman posted with me, earlier in the week. She typically only interviews novelists, […]

Death And All His Friends (Viva La Vida!, But No Coldplay)

“We all have an expiration date. If we didn’t, nothing would ever get done.”—”The Big C” If you know anything about me at all, you know that I love entertainment. Pretty much any form of live performance or media is something I am going to enjoy (although I don’t much like sci-fi or action/adventure flicks, […]

Feeling Defeated By Restlessness….

AUTHOR’S UPDATE: After writing this, I was almost pointed to this article via synchronicity. It’s no secret I don’t care for Jezebel’s perspective, especially when it comes to reading columns by female writers, but this article has more than a grain of truth. In fact, it seems remarkably tied in to everything I was feeling […]

Processing Loss And Mortality…..

“Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old time is still a-flying: And this same flower that smiles to-day Tomorrow will be dying.” ~ Robert Herrick I’m feeling a little melancholy tonight, something that hit me pretty suddenly during an otherwise positive week. The reason for this is that after I got home from our usual […]

“Positive Thinking Is For Suckers!”

“It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses, we must plant more roses.” —George Eliot NOTE: You can either read my snarky rant about positive thinking, or you can just read this awesome article that inspired it. Or you can read both, but depending on how positive you are, you may […]

There Is No Growing Up, There’s Just Growing…

“Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.”—John Lennon Life is short, for all of us. Few of us ever have as much time to accomplish all we want to do with our lives, to determine our purpose for being here, for loving others and learning to accept the beauty of feeling loved […]

Fighting With Friends, And My Relationship With Texts…

That sounds like a band name, or a really violent Meetup event, but it is neither. Yesterday was not really a good day. In fact, it was such an upsetting day that I don’t even really want to write about it. However, since that’s how I best process and make sense of life, I will. […]

Decision-Making, Life, And The Importance Of Intuition…

I am not by nature a timid or indecisive person. Except when it comes to issues like my wardrobe and what to have for dinner that night, I don’t have difficulty figuring out what I want, when I want it. I have greater difficulty when it comes to figuring out why I want a certain […]
