Dog Days Of Summer

Pitbull Rescue
Since I am off from work this week, I am going to try to write a little each day. I will use my blog as a daily journal entries more or less.

I want a dog!  🐶 I wanted to rescue a Pit Bull specifically but I live in a high-rise and can’t have a dog over 25 pounds in this building.  I love living in a condo in a high rise. It’s so convenient and safe.  Unfortunately, that means for now I am getting my Pit Bull puppy loving from my great nephew dog and sticking with high-rise living. Please see the below link to the a Pit Bull Rescue Organization and below is a photo of my nephew asking me for a slice of ham🐶😍

Pit Bull

May I have some ham please Aunt Linda?

Next, I went to the doctor yesterday with a list of issues one of which is a strained trap muscle. The doctor talked me into trying a small dose of muscle relaxer at bedtime last night to see if it helped. As the drug started to take affect, I felt like I had no control over my body and I started to get anxiety. Seriously, I started freaking out. Here is the reason I became anxious when I started feeling strange, I live alone. There is no one here to help me if the drug has a bad affect. There is no one here to talk me off the ledge at 1:00am when I am feeling like maybe I can’t breathe asking myself is it anxiety or is it a reaction to the drug. It was a long night. I survived😂 I will not be taking it again. I will deal with the pain. The muscle will eventually work it’s way out and I have a massage scheduled for Friday.

I also talked to the doc about a recent flare up of stomach issues. Let me just say, I OWN this one. As I was talking to her, I realized I did it to myself. I expanded my diet too far. As she started asking me about my diet recently, I said something about eating raw veggies. She started tapping on her laptop and then said, “since you have Pancreatic Enzyme Deficiency you don’t have the juice in your gut to digest raw veggies. They will just sit there and rot. A salad once in a while is ok, but you can’t eat raw every day and especially don’t eat them at dinner!” That’s when she started laughing. Apparently, I looked guilty. Yes, I have been poisoning myself with raw veggies. I can’t make this shit up. I’ll be on a bland diet for a few weeks until I get my gut settled down.

That’s all for today. I will write again tomorrow.

Self Care Sunday ~ Writing is life

Writing is life

Writing is Self Care for me. Writing is part of who I am. Writing is how I express myself. Writing is how I process emotions. Writing is how I state my truth. Writing is life to me.

Thinking through my Self Care Sunday posts and reflecting on the topics I want to write about is a labor of love and a therapeutic process for me.  I sometime write in my mind as I drive or as I walk and then I come home and let the words pour out onto the page. This process gives me an opportunity to reflect on my experiences from the last week and allows me space to sit with any emotions that may have surfaced. Writing is life to me.

My first love will always be poetry. I started writing poetry when I was 15 years old and now I can honestly say I’ve written over 400 poems. My early poetry is hand-written in journal books. The poetry I’ve written in recent years is in files on my MacBook and published by me on this website. My poetry is about life, desire, sex and self awareness but mostly I write about love – romantic love, self love, unconditional love. I write poetry about love. Writing is life to me.

In recent weeks, I’ve been sharing some of my older poetry from the Blue Love Poetry Collection. I’ve enjoyed looking through my older poetry. Each one I read reminds me of how I felt when I wrote it. It reminds me of that time of my life. It reminds me of that time and space we shared. It reminds me I am grateful for those experiences because they helped me grow into the woman I am today.   I feels good to be authentic and true about who I am and what I feel.  I write love. Writing is life to me.

I am taking a book writing course now. I am enjoying it. It’s been opening my mind to different ways to publish a book now. I was intimidated because I was focused on the traditional route of 400 pages, publishers and hardback sales. However, I’ve learned about self publishing and small publishing companies. Short books, under 100 pages or so, are actually selling well in Digital format. The biggest challenge I have is that I have a full time job that I will not be quitting any time soon and retirement isn’t for another nine years. So, having the time/energy to focus on book writing is proving challenging. For now, I am focusing on staying consistent with my Self Care Sunday Posts, building a following on Twitter under the Writing Holistically name and learning new ways to approach book writing. The reality is writing a book is a long term goal for me that I will work towards over time. Writing is life to me.

I take care of myself and honor my needs by writing.

Writing is life to me🦋

How do you express yourself?
How do you process your emotions?
How are you honoring your truth and your needs?
What is life to you?

Flash Back Friday – My First Blue Love Poem

Spark Of A New Desire ~ Blue Love Poetry
Two minds
One fantasy
In lust
As if
The waters
Of chemistry
If we
Should we
Act out our
Should we
The door
To mutual
And invite
To bring
Our bodies
Should we
Allow our
Eyes to meet
And linger
In this moment of
Conflicted self awareness
Logic speaks
To obstacles
Energy passing
Between us
Begs to entwine
Our arms
Our lips
Our bodies
Connect our minds
Take this ride
Of romance
Without knowing
If it is prudent
Because it
Lacks convenience
Lives in
My mind
And stirs
My body
By your mere
Glance at my breasts
You set me on fire
With just your eyes
The spark
Of new desire
Ignites me
Juices Flow and
Brings life
To my creativity
You are invited to
Create with me

NOTE As promised, I will be sharing poetry from my Blue Love Poetry Collection throughout the whole month of June as special gift for someone I care about. Instead of writing all new poetry this month, I will share poetry I wrote in over years. I will also sprinkle in some new stuff as we go along.

In honor of Flash Back Friday, today’s poem is the very first poem I wrote for Blue Love. It was written on March 19, 2013. Blue Love and I knew each other. However, one day something changed. We started looking at each other differently. This poem was an acknowledgement of the unexpected spark of desire that he ignited within me. It was a way for me to express what I felt when he looked at me. It was a way for me to say he aroused me.

As we approach an ending of sorts, I find my peace in knowing I love him unconditionally. I find peace in our “connection”. I have no idea what the future holds for us. Perhaps this is an actual ending or maybe it’s a beginning of sorts. Who knows… All I know is I want to do right by both of us. I want to protect and honor him as well as take care of myself. The best way for me to honor myself as well as take care of him was for me to be vulnerable and show him my authentic truth directly. Honestly, it was quite liberating to just to let it out.

My next post will be on Self Care Sunday. Those posts are always scheduled to release at 11:00pm on Saturday nights. Then I will post a couple poems during the week.

I offer the Loving Kindness Prayer for Blue Love…

The Loving Kindness Prayer

May you be safe
May you be healthy
May you be happy
May you be loved

Self Care Sunday – Pieces of Wisdom

Theodore Roosevelt Arena quote

I’ve had trouble writing this Self Care Sunday post today. I had a bit of writer’s block so I just wrote about keys pieces of wisdom I’ve learned in recent years…

The single most important thing for personal and spiritual growth is self-awareness. Seeing one’s self – witnessing both strengths and weakness – is powerful. When grounded in truth and self-knowledge, I am authentically strong and powerful.

While loyalty to others is important, none should come before my loyalty to myself. It’s essential to make choices that good for my holistic wellness. Make choices that support my well-being. I will make choices that honor my needs, wants and desires.

Loyalty quote

I am 100% responsible for my choices and actions. I accept responsibility.

I am 100% accountable for my choices and actions. I hold myself accountable.

I am equally responsible and accountable for my inaction. When I don’t make a choice, I am making a choice.

Missing an opportunity because I did not take action is my responsibility. It’s essential to prepare one’s self with education and development so when opportunity knocks, I will be ready.

Luck quote

I am self-sufficient. I am self-supportive. I am self-reliant. I am solely responsible for my financial health and well-being. I am solely responsible for planning for my retirement. I am solely responsible for securing my future. I am responsible for making smart money choices! Recent career choices are grounded in this wisdom.

I would rather take my chances, take risks, work hard and try my best than coast through life or have an easy job. This is how I roll. I prefer rolling through life with folks who roll the same way. When I applied for two promotions at the same time last week, I took a risk. I will see how that plays out in the coming weeks but it was a risk I knew I had to take. In the words of Brene Brown, I “dared greatly”.

Brene Brown quote

My character is my responsibility. Living by my principles is not optional. I respect people who stand for something. Stand for something – Stand for anything – Stand!

I live my truth when I let folks know that I love them and care about them. If you get one of those texts, phones or a hug, know that I authentically love and miss you. Don’t get weird about it 😂 Just accept it and know you are loved!

Self Care Sunday ~ Jumping Into A Fire

Risk quote

Something unexpected happened this week. I received an email from the Institute Of Integrative Nutrition. Since I paid my tuition for my Holistic Health Coaching Course in full before school began in May 2017, they gave me a FREE six month Book Writing course($999 value) as a bonus. I had one year from my graduation date in May 2018 to enroll. I forgot about it; they emailed me to let me know my last shot to enroll in the free course is the class starting on June 3rd.

There was only one problem with this. I wasn’t really planning on going back to school for a while… My initial reaction to the email was hesitation. Do I really want to sign up for a six month course which means 5 to 10 hours a week for homework and writing. Really? Now? God damn Universe…I was kind of enjoying being lazy 😂

After thinking about it, I would feel bad not taking advantage of the opportunity and wasting the free course worth $999. The truth is I have been itching for some spiritual/intellectual stimulation and looking for a new hobby. I jumped in 😂 I enrolled in the June 3rd course. Any time you get something worth $999 for free, it’s time for the Happy Dance!

Happy Dance gif

With careful deliberation, I am approaching this course differently than I approached my studies in the past. I will not put myself under any pressure with this course because it is for personal enrichment only. Which means it’s a hobby and I can relax with it. I am lowering my expectations of myself in it too. I’ll be happy if I at least learn how to write the book and come out with an outline for a book. That’s all I want from it. I will also be happy if I start having discipline to intentionally set aside time for writing each week. I usually freestyle my writing; focusing on being more disciplined with writing will be a challenge for me… Lastly, the truth is I don’t really care if I finish this course. If it gets to be too much, I’ll just take a slower pace. I will still have access to the course information for two years after the six months is over. All I have to do really is download the information each week and save it as reference for when I am ready to dive in. Yep, I’ve changed and this time I am not stressing about it.

The funny thing is I was toying with the idea of writing a book. I even have a topic I am interested in writing about. It is kind of interesting the opportunity to take a free book writing course manifested now. The Universe is absolutely amazing. I am a powerful creator 😇✨The two topics I enjoy reading about the most are holistic approaches to wellness and executive leadership. Without giving too much away about my premise, I plan to write a book merging both topics. – holistic wellness with executive leadership or holistic leadership. I have plenty of reference materials plus my education. I also work with many leaders, coaches and managers. I can talk to them “unofficially/confidentially” and perhaps pick their brains without quoting them or using privileged information. I hope to, at least, get some feedback and advice. I would actually love for my former Group Manager to be a writing partner but I don’t know if he would/could do something like that🙏If not, I definitely hope he can at least be a confidential advisor since he’s shaped much of my experience. I kind of grew up working for him. I think he’s the bees knees and I don’t care if he knows it 😊😂✌️😘

So, I jumped into a six month writing course that starts June 3rd and it looks like I will be writing a book on holistic leadership… That feels like the deep end of the pool. I hope to hell I can swim. With working a full time job, I have a feeling the below meme could end up as my experience most days but I will hope for the best. I hope once I get rolling and with having the structure of the course, I will be better with procrastination.

Book writing meme

I also jumped in at work. It’s more like jumping into a dumpster fire there rather than the deep end of the pool 🔥🔥😂I started a new job a month ago. I have enough knowledge and experience that I was able to jump right into the mix. It took me a little time to understand the shorthand this new team uses but I know enough that I am not struggling too much. A few people weren’t really happy about me being added to the team. They didn’t understand my role. They seemed to feel threatened. I’ve been working very hard to clarify that I am not a threat to anyone. I am there to help bring discipline and strategy to their planning and processes. I am there to put structure around them to make things work a little better. I am there to help them understand and utilize the contract more efficiently. Leadership hasn’t been great at communicating that to the team so I’ve had to do it myself and now folks are more receptive. Yep, jumping right into a dumpster fire.

Jumping into a fire meme

Unfortunately, I am observing that there are fundamental inequities in the team’s understanding of their requirements versus what is actually in our contract. My observation was validated by another contracts specialist. Hyper-reactivity to the daily fires means the team has been pushing for quick turn around times on contracting issues which isn’t always the most advantageous for us in the long run. Quick fixes are sometimes needed in the work we do but then you need to have the discipline to wrap back around and look to see if you broke something in long run. A quick fix could water-down what was already in affect contractually if we aren’t careful with the wording and execution. Thankfully, a leader recognized my concern as valid and helped me form a workgroup to evaluate at least one problem they’ve been having. We need to understand if there are truly gaps or are we just not enforcing properly. They are all onboard now and this could be my first win with the team. Yep, I jumped right into the fire with them. Hope my perspective helps the team be more efficient.

What I am hoping to demonstrate in this post is what I am mean about holistic leadership. Take me for example, I took the time to work on my holistic health. Feeding the body, mind and spirit every day is essential to holistic wellness for all beings. As for myself, I’ve learned how to create and enforce boundaries. I need to learn and grow for fulfillment. I know I need to enjoy my work. I take time to replenish my body, mind and spirit daily. This makes me a better more productive employee. It also gives me confidence to assert myself respectfully and it helps me challenge others to meet me on my level. I used holistic methods to coach myself to be a better leader but imagine using these and other holistic wellness approaches with your staff…That’s holistic leadership. I can’t wait to explore this topic in a book. Someone may have already wrote about this but they won’t have my unique flavor or perspective 😊

Below my latest professional development read. It’s about creating workplaces where employees feel safe to express themselves and are empowered to be innovative without fear. I heard about it on Twitter from leadership author, Mark Crowley – I haven’t started it yet. It just arrived yesterday. I’ve had a bit of a migraine from allergies and haven’t been able to read much the last couple of days. If you are interested in reading this book, you can order it on Amazon either in Kindle or hardcover. I am building up a reference library for the book so I can use quotes.

The Fearless Organization

Let me ask you – Are you willing to jump into the unknown having no clue where it will take you? If not, perhaps explore what’s holding you back. Fear of failure held me back for a long time but not any longer. Failure is just another method of learning. Failure is only a problem if you don’t learn from it. For me, the excitement and adventure of jumping into something is worth the risk of failing…

In My Dreams

Dream art

I had a wonderful dream on Monday night 😊 It was so vivid and clear that I could have sworn it was happening in real life. Around 2:30am on Tuesday Morning I had the below dream…

I walked into a room and found BlueLove sleeping. He was on his back with one arm over his head. I kissed his cheek and said, “Wake up, I’m here. It’s time to wake up.” He was startled when he opened his eyes. He slowly sat up in the bed with more or less a “WTF is going on” look on his face. He looked extremely confused and oh so cute with bed head. As he rubbed his eyes and shook his head, he looked at me and asked me “Where am I?” I said, “You are with me. You needed me. So I am here. Do you want me to get you anything!” In his grouchy morning voice, “YES! COFFEE; I need Coffee!” 😂😂☕️ I started laughing and replied, “You want me to make you coffee NOW?” He said, “Yes!” 😂 We exchanged a few other cryptic sentences in the dream which I won’t get into. Then I kissed his forehead, told him I loved him and went to go make him coffee. The dream ended with me walking away 🤔

Any professional Dream Intrepretors want to take crack at this one? I will say it’s interesting because it felt so real. His expressions were so real and him being grouchy before coffee was absolutely perfect 😂😂 Well, he wasn’t actually so much grouchy as he was confused and had no idea where he was with me😂 After I woke up, I had to wonder. You see, I believe it’s possible for people who share a deep spiritual connection to communicate subconsiously in dream state and in reality. Perhaps we did need each other and found each other in our subconscious while we were sleeping💙 In this particular dream, it seems I was sent to reassure him and calm him. It also seemed like he was brought to show me he can hear me when my heart talks to him. Who knows, maybe it was just dream…

This all made me think about dreams vs. reality. I’ve always been a dreamer, an idealist. My family would often joke that I was off chasing rainbows. I never felt like I was chasing rainbows. I truly believe the human heart and human mind are very powerful. I believe we can create amazing things in this world and our life by harnessing the power within ourselves. That’s what the last few years have been about me. I’ve been working to harness my own personal power. Every change I’ve made in the last few years has been about finding the best within me. Every decision I made, every friendship I stepped away from, every relationship I ended, every professional decision I’ve made has been making me stronger, better and wiser. While friends and coworkers say I’ve changed, the truth isn’t that I’ve changed – it’s that I’ve grown.

I’ve been relying upon intuiton more than logic to make decisions lately. I was getting signs that it was time to figure out where I am going after my temporary assignment is complete in February. I applied for a job one pay band higher in the Organization I am working in now. I made the referral list that went to the Managers😊 I did have an interview. It was good but it’s not a great fit for either of us. They prefer someone based at HQ and I don’t want to move. I actually only applied to see if I was qualified to get on the higher payband referrral list – and I was 😊 That’s been helpful. So two other opportunities came up but they will both take some time to be worked out. That actually works out fine because I still have get some advance testing on my stomach since my biopsies came back suspicious but not conclusive. I go to Jeff on 10/24. Having a delay at work will actually give time to do all that and have everything figured out before my temp assignment is done. In the meantime, I will trust everything is always working out for my highest; the love I give is returned 💙🦋

I am sharing Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” because it’s one of my favorite songs. It’s a song about dreams vs. reality. It talks about how a dreamer looks at the world versus how a realist looks at the world. I am definitely a dreamer.

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say “I love you” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost, but something’s gained
In living every day

Information Overload & Growing

Butterfly Cacoon Growth Five weeks into a new job and almost everyday I am reminded of a fire hose. I am standing up a new program. It’s a lot of work to strategize, plan and stand up a new Program. Almost everyday someone downloads A LOT of information to me at rapid speed and my brain can only process so much at one time. On my first day, my new boss said, “It will be like drinking water from a fire hose!” Guess what, he was right! I’ve learned to take the downloads and then hit the pause button for a few days. Then I go process and figure out how each new piece of the puzzle fits into the bigger picture.

I like puzzles. The ability to strategize is one of my number one strengths. This week I received a lot of puzzle pieces without a lot of time to process. Next week I’ll be working to fit what I gathered this week together with what I already knew. The good news is the draft Charter I wrote is out for review. It’s being well received and is lining up to be my first quick win:-)

This week has been especially fun. I was in DC on Tuesday for meetings with my leadership team who work there as well as an advocacy group. All of my meetings that day went quite well. Actually, my leadership talked to me about potential opportunities in the future working with them down there. They asked me to keep that in my awareness as I am working on my current project. I told them I am keeping an open mind to all opportunities. I had a wonderful meeting with an advocacy group and I am really excited by the synergy I believe we can create together.

This new job is good stretch for me. There is no other way to say it. I am stretching myself in new directions. I am using new skills. I am being forced to level up. I am setting an example of professionalism while remembering it is ok to ask for guidance. While this job is stretch for me, it is not outside of my current skills set. I am nowhere near over my head. I am, however, swimming a little harder to get to the top than I had to swim in my old job. It’s all good.

Folks were worried that I would be bored in this new group. It’s a slower paced group and less chaotic environment for sure. But, the scope of the project I am working on is so big and there is so much to do, there is no way that I would be bored. The quiet environment is actually healthier for me.

I went to an event with my former coworkers yesterday while they were serving ice cream. It felt good and comfortable. I told them my assignment was going well but I am still keeping an open mind to all opportunities. The truth is I have no idea what’s going to happen between now and the end of the year. I could stay in the role I am in now. I could take another role in the line of business I am in now or I could go back to my home Organization. I am keeping my mind open to all possibilities. I do know one thing for sure. If I do go back, they will need to offer me a role on comparable level to the one I am working at now. I can’t go back to playing small. I have these skills and I want to use them.

As for school, I left work early today so I could come home for two school related conference calls. I am taking a break in between them right now to right this blog. At 6pm, I will participate in a Coaching Circle and will have to give a status update on the progress I am making on goal I set. I will also be learning new Coaching Skills from my classmates. 9 weeks to go until graduation.

The 18th anniversary of my sister’s death is tomorrow. It always puts me in a weird mood. Someone asked me if I was ok today. I wasn’t dress up and had very little makeup on. I am usually more polished. I was a little sad when I woke up. One of my Closest friends is on Clinical Trials for Cancer and it’s not going well. I guess she was on my mind and my sister was on my mind. I was distracted; that’s all. But, the truth is I am absolutely fine.

I’ve also been thinking about this friend I have. I miss being close to him and sharing time and space with him and his blue eyes. I missed an opportunity to connect with those blue eyes because I was distracted this morning and caught up in my head and emotions. I guess I also hesitated because I feel a bit unsteady with him which causes me to worry about saying and doing the wrong things. It makes me nervous with him. I also sense that he is a little nervous around me as well. Not sure why we are both so nervous and guarded😂 I think we need an ice breaker 😂 I think we are nervous and guarded because we both still have feelings for each other and are not sure what (if anything) we should say or do about it. I, for one, will avoid the topic if he will 😂 Deal? 😊 We are moving in different worlds now which is good for both of us and our careers. And, the truth is… he is not mine to hold at night. I’ve accepted that. I guess I just thought I could keep him as friend and in my life. He is still in my heart, on my mind and in my awareness. I hope I am still in his heart too. I just wanted to stand before him and say HI while I looking into those beautiful eyes and talk about stupid shit; no need to deep dive. It would be nice to get back into an easy flirtious fun rhythm with him again 😁💙🦋 But, if he wants me to stay away from him, I can do that too. That would make me sad but I will do it.

My last bit of gratitude today is that I have dinner plans with friends tomorrow night. It’s an annual restaurant week dinner at my favorite restaurant. It’s a little weird this year. There is usually four to six of us. However, this year everyone is sick. So, it’s just me and one other girlfriend. We cancelled our table and will sit at the “Oyster” bar. As of five minutes ago, another friend is starting to feel better and may join us. I am looking forward to the opportunity to socialize a bit.

Writing my thoughts out is one way I maintain holistic wellness. If you would like more information on Holistic Wellness strategies, please email: or visit the Coaching Services Page of this website to book a 30 minutes phone call.

Hears yours
I answer the call
With these words
As your
Valentine’s gift
That I will
Write with
My lips
I will write
I love you in
Ruby Red Lipstick
Across your body
Ending on
The tip of your
I sign my name
In my
Ruby Red

I ask you… On this Valentine’s Day who lights up your soul? Express yourself; let them know they stoke your fire. If you can’t see or talk to them today, use the power of your intuition to spiritually connect the Red Thread from your heart to theirs. Nourish each other with the food of the soul through the power of your intention and intuition. Physical proximity does not indict the strength of a connection or a bond. Intuition and Spirit connects us telepathically to those we love. Trust your intuition. Feed your spiritual connections today and tug on the red thread between you and those you love.

Having a practice the nourishes your spirit can help improve your holistic wellness and even improve your health.

Love Me In The Morning ~ Poetry


Love Me In The Morning ~ Love, Sex & Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

I sit
Perched upon
Your hips
Rocking in a rhythm
To satisfy the
Urgency of my desire
Burning a fire
Between my legs
My wetness
Drips down
Over your body
With the motion
I create
While riding you
Sliding up
And down
As I whisper
The words
Of passion
With each thrust
I whisper
I love you
I whisper
Those words
Into your
Crystal blue eyes
I’ve wanted you
Inside of me
Since I first blushed
As you
Looked at my breasts
I whisper
As I kiss your lips
The energy rises
Deep within my
Wet Center
The rhythm
Of my hips
Quickens with intensity
Wetness gushes between
My legs as
I slide my nipple
Into your mouth
And whisper
Bite it
Nibble gently
As I moan
Your name
My body quivers
As the warm sensations
Start taking over
My body
Smack my ass
I beg you
As I start to
Lose control
And surrender
Into the
Rhythm of my
Erotic desire for you
I say your
I shout your
In One finally
As I crash
Into your hips
In orgasmic release
I love you
I whisper
I say
I kiss your lips
And roll onto
My back
Spreading my legs
Wide as you
Pin my hands
To the bed
Press yourself
Deep inside of me
Thrusting until
You collapse
And whisper
I love you
As you rest
Your head
My breasts
Enjoying this time
Together before
We get out of bed
To start the day
Make love
To me
Every morning
Love me
In the morning
