Lexapro: A GoGo (sprint version)

This is a writing sprint. Please excuse typos and grammatical errors. Formatted version here. IT started almost a week ago. I had taken my Lexapro after a couple of years and got it down to 10 mg. Then for several months, I had it to 5. Last week, 0 mg. The first couple of days, I didn’t really feel withdrawals […]

Hey There, What’s Your Sign?

Photo by Nastya Dulhiier on Unsplash Slight deviation from the normal format today. I’m writing a speech for my Toastmasters Club and these first few paragraphs felt like a quick enough read befitting this blog. “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings.” These words were spoken between two friends, Cassius and […]

I Found My Voice When I Stopped Talking

While meditating this morning, I began thinking about the benefits of regular midfulness exercises since I began them several months ago. Various senraios swirled through my head, all of them having some relation to how I used to react in scenarios and how I still sometimes do react but now can recognize those.

I was searching for a quote to use in a business post and came upon one for Brene Brown. The keyword I searched with was vulnerability.
