The act of celebrating

Posted by: Laurie Gloge on 2017-05-10

This morning, my inbox had a campaign message that caught my eye. This is a big thing because honestly these message tend to sit in my inbox with read later or ignore. But this one caught my eye. It called for a celebration after a small group got together to resist the far right and they stopped to say Merci La France! This is an awesome way to pay tribute to goal and dream that got things started.

Time for some Endorphins

Posted by: Laurie Gloge on 2017-05-10

By setting a timer on today's task, I was able to go for some quick wins. I forgot that it took me forever to create a new rails app on my mac.. 2 minutes til I could see that nice welcome screen on my localhost:3000 screen. I needed that! Message, simplify, results give endorphins, .. almost as good as coffee.

There is a sweet spot for focusing

Ah, long weekends, especially mini vacations. After trying to get in the groove, and stressing about anything and everything, I took a step back, remembered what I was working on, and like Nike, just did it. I was in the sweet spot. I'll call it "just". No worrying about goals, no perfectionism, "just". After a step back, bit of work, things are all right. I got some stuff done at a happy medium, no heat, no slacking, some where in the middle.

Today, I am going to see how long it takes to make a rails site. I will be making a website for the Rocky Mountain Funny Car race group. Heads down. I have done it all before, but this is start to finish. I will let you know. I will either be cheering or cursing!

It's summer - healthy kick off

Posted by: Laurie Gloge on 2017-06-05

June is here, unofficial time for the last pants in the garden, patio time, and the great out doors. I started a walk run routine, twice a day with the dog. It helps the lawn look nicer, that and some Lime Dolomite. This weekend we ventured on a 7km walk run in Bowness Park. Spiritual, Energy, and Mental revitalization. Ahhh.

After spending time on mini apps and I found some old code for creativecalgary with the original design, it's now a hybrid of the original and new site. You can check it out at I also added some content for exploring interesting places people and events in the city. I am working on making it easy to set up events, spot people, and places. A journey is searchable content.

I just tracked one of my goals and am at the half way mark. That is awesome. The thing is that I like many others can reach it, forget about it, and it's back to the grind. That's not OK, I booked some rewards, it's time to activate them. Booking spa session :)

Abundance is currency

I found myself in a place with out greenery and trees on my travels. I woke up thinking summer was gone. After returning to my place with flowers and green things, my sense of gratitude and abundance re-surfaced.
