Taking one Step at a Time

My brain cannot function if it is held up with multiple worries and concerns. I have to focus on one piece of the pie at a time. Meaning, if life tosses me multiple things that I have to resolve, I cannot just sit back and think about this one and that one then the next one all at once. The reason is that I have three kids, two of which are extremely active boys, on top of everything that goes on in the adult world living as a responsible adult. My brain works best when I take one piece of […]

Thinking About My Ramblings on Here

Sometimes I wonder if my ADD blogger brain shows in my writing here on site. I must admit it probably does because this blog is truly 100% who I am. One who reads my blog daily and then meets me in person can totally say “yup that is you”. Am I right or am I right? {asking those who have met me in real life} I honestly cannot stay on topic for long, I go off on all sorts of tangents, even in the middle of a sentence. Here is how my brain works — Earlier today K-man was running […]

Ever Have One Of those Days?

I have been having one of those months, it seems every time I turn around something hasn’t been sent to me that should have, the kids need me and meanwhile I am on the verge of a total breakdown. I could bang my head against a wall, something I often say I just may do if the kids don’t settle down. I always say it with a smile, so I assume that makes it sound less awful? I could run around crying and screaming. I could climb back into bed and shut out the world. I could do a whole […]

How Can I Boost Memory?

I have a serious problem with my memory and it’s been going away for many years now. It seems I can barely remember yesterday let alone earlier today. The memory problems I am having now started happening only during pregnancy but then they started sticking with me and I am getting concerned. Everyone says it is because I do so much and have so much on my mind that it’s inevitable that my brain is going to toss out those little memories like “why did I go to Walmart today” so that it can save room for the more important […]

Work on Increasing Your Cognitive Skills, Including Memory

I have written many times about my lack of memory, I can’t remember much of anything. My memory is so bad that my daughter actually informs people that she is my memory. Everyone laughs but in all reality it is kind of concerning that my memory is failing me so soon, I am only 29 years old. As the economy keeps sinking and people start having to work later in life it seems memory is something that people are going to have to start focusing on increasing. I think the older we get our brain just can’t handle all of […]

Thursday Rambles

It’s been a while since I simply rambled about whatever I feel like and so today is your lucky day, you get to listen to Brandy Ellen ramble on and on about whatever comes to my mind. For starters I would like to say that I don’t understand why my children can be happy and smiling one moment and then the next be at each others throats in such a way that I can’t tear them apart fast enough. Children are amazing, I grew up with one sister, she is four years younger than me and so we would always […]

Day 6: A Matter of Thinking

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series Become Outgoing & Less Anxious

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series Become Outgoing & Less AnxiousNow that my head was clear I was able to have a free mind and train my brain to take information into it and spit it out as positive or proactive thoughts/actions. For example if I were to receive a disconnect notice for a very important bill I would not sit here in tears wondering how the heck I was going to pay for it, I would actually sit here and focus on ways I could come up with the money, payment plan options the company […]

Day 5: Head Clear To Move Forward

This entry is part 5 of 9 in the series Become Outgoing & Less Anxious

This entry is part 5 of 9 in the series Become Outgoing & Less AnxiousWelcome to Day 5, I will forewarn you that I am emotional today and wrote about it on my other blog if anyone is following that one you will see what I am talking about. For today I want to talk about having a clear mind to move forward. I will admit that when I cleared my mind with my old boss, I told her a lot of things I will not even tell my family.  I also had a great friend who went to school […]

I Confess I am Ditsy

I must confess to you all that I am ditsy, spacey, lost at times. I don’t know why or what has gotten into me but I have done things such as drop off an empty disposable camera at Walmart photo lab, walked out of a store to find out I don’t remember where I parked the car and must ask my 7 year old where the car was parked. I am so ditsy and lost sometimes that my daughter knows she is my memory. I seriously use post-it notes all over my house when something is coming up. I have […]

Positive Thoughts Create Positive Energy

As I talk to friends and hear their pain and all of the not so great things they are going through I try my hardest to get them in an upbeat mood. I have always tried to be cheerful, well not all my life, it seems like a few years back my brain transformed into this happy, optimistic brain and I can’t help but automatically start thinking positive thoughts when faced with a problem! Every person has a choice to allow the problems in their lives to create a depressed, anxious individual or to create a proactive, happy individual. It’s […]
