Cathy's Musings

Call Mother

Call Mother

And there she is again, your mother, inside of you, forcing words out of your mouth, words, you promised you'd never utter. What to do? Fight it, fight it hard, get locked into another battle.
Trustworthiness

Trustworthiness

I've been on the up side lately. Yay! It's much more pleasant on this side than the one below. Did something happen? No. Although maybe the stars aligned, I'm not entirely familiar with that system,
What's Mine Is Not Mine

What's Mine Is Not Mine

In my house, there are more pens than a small office supply store. A handful of the above mentioned pens are mine. They're for drawing, they're expensive, and I've separated them from the other pens, because, there are, mine!
Self-help

Self-help

Self-help books are my weakness. During the read, I'm convinced that I'll be cured of all that ails me. And what ails me? Being human, and all of the fixins. And a month after I've finished the read,

Craft Show FOMO

Craft Show FOMO

A few months ago I became aware of the term FOMO. Fear Of Missing Out Although I'd never heard the term before, I've suffered its consequences for as long as I can remember.
Be Yourself

Be Yourself

In case you need a reminder to be yourself. Be yourself! Yourself is the best you you can be. (even the not so polished parts) (actually, those may be the best parts)(certainly the most interesting)
Caring On A Bad Day

Caring On A Bad Day

When I'm having a bad day, and my patience is low, lower than the bad day you're having. The bad day you need to tell me about. I just can't hear it, I just don't care, but I am sorry.
