Today (July 24) is International Self-Care Day I’d never heard about it before yesterday when I was looking on the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) website at work. A bit timely since self care is, and has been, pretty low on my radar lately. Many people in a caregiver role do not have time for self … Continue reading Self Care and Messages from the Universe in the FASD Lane
Who is driving your bus?
Here is a very creative way to not only learn about emotions/coping skills/self regulation, but help identify how and when to use them. A fellow mama and FASD advocate, creator of Team Love - a group for connecting families living with FASD - made this resource after being told about a bus metaphor for emotions. … Continue reading Who is driving your bus?

sunday, september 21 was the quiet day. a movement started by the quiet place project. a day when we all stop yelling at each other. we write everything in lowercase. during the quiet day you should not write anything with your caps-lock on (and no — don’t use the shift key either). the use of … Continue reading the quiet day: a good day for a drive and being mindful
Blogging 101 : Title and tag line
Nothing like getting a person to contemplate her entire existence on the second day! I am a day behind so really I am examining myself on the first day.

Blogging 101 – Day 1 – Introduce Yourself
I have signed up for this class because I want to become a better blogger. I am still a little unclear on how it works.

Quiet and calm has been elusive this week
I have been feeling very on edge this past week. In the past I would have exploded in anger, or shut down and cried. But now I breathe. I try to find a few quiet moments, but there have been very few quiet moments this week. I need time to myself to recharge. Away from … Continue reading Quiet and calm has been elusive this week
