How do you generate post ideas…

Blog post ideas can be as ephemeral as dandelion seeds: one gust of wind and theyโ€™re floating away on the breeze. How do you sow the seeds of post inspiration? How do you capture those ideas before they fly away?

Bad days, perhaps?

Yesterday, I posted about the 5 things that made me smile/happy or simply brightened up my day.

Many of you viewed it BUT… none shared their 5 things.

So, I want to know, are you guys having such bad days?

So bad that you cannot pick out 5 positive things?

Just 5?

Ahhh… I really hope you have better days ahead and try to see the positives in each day like I am trying to do ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s just way too much of negativity in this world right now. The least we can do is not add to it.




Circulating Now Celebrates 20 Years of Harry Potter!

J. K. Rowling published Harry Potter and the Philosopherโ€™s Stone, the debut novel in the seven-book series that became a pop culture phenomenon, on June 26, 1997. Over the past two decades, the exploits of the boy wizard and his friends have spawned successful cinematic and theater adaptations, developed a devoted and enthusiastic global fandom, inspired admirers to create Harry Potter-themed art and media, instilled important moral lessons into a generation of young people now coming of age, and even added to the English lexicon! (See: โ€œMuggleโ€ in the Oxford English Dictionary.) The NLM History of Medicine Division celebrates the 20th anniversary of…

Monday Motivation

Hiii Friends ๐Ÿ™‚


I know the usual Monday motivation is somewhat of a quote with some inspiration. That’s great but I wanna do it slightly different this time around.

I am going to name 5 things that brightened my Monday or simply just made me smile/happy and you should do the same ๐Ÿ™‚ This will not only help us feel better for today, but also take us on a positive ride for the week. We can also look for all the good and positive things during the week and do a weekly one, or even just a Friday one. I like that we will be forced to focus on the GOOD things! Either way, Up to YOU ๐Ÿ™‚ when and how you want this to go!

You can feel free to comment them below, and please do drop some suggestions as well.

Here’s my FIVE things:

  1. My doggy Scarlett: She was oh so cute this morning. The moment she saw me, she came jumping on me with her nonsensical smile and playful mood.
  2. The weather: I just looove sunrises and sunsets, and I am so fortunate to see beautiful ones as I drive pass the beach in the mornings. Thankfully we leave early, so I get to catch a stunning sunrise upon the ocean – what a sight.
  3. My friend: I wasn’t feeling too keen on today as I am not too well, but my friend offered to ride with me to the pharmacy to get some pain meds – that was so sweet of her, and that in itself, made me feel a little better ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Old photos: I am lucky to have some pictures of when my nephew was a few months and growing, going through these photos definitely brightened my day and brought back some good old memories.
  5. Music: I was a big Swiftie in younger years, and going through my hard drive this morning, spotted some good ol’ songs that made me put some of those on my playlist today, and I just love the country music! I think I am still a Swiftie! Go Taylor! ๐Ÿ˜€


I should be studying. ๐Ÿ“š But I’m not. 

I took the book and kept it beside me. But what am I doing instead? 

I’m rolling on the bed with pain. Pain in my stomach. Pain I’ve been suffering with since the hysteroscopy. It’s a pulling, twisting, throbbing kind of a pain. ๐Ÿ˜ข
Pain meds? I’ve tried all kinds. 

Tummy massage? Done.

But it just won’t go away. ๐Ÿ˜“โณ
