What I listen to…

Lately, I have been listening to several podcasts during my long walks. It makes the time go by faster, and I get to catch up on some of the current events, get updated on pop culture, and learn a few new things about finances and relationships, hoping that something sticks. It made me think – … More What I listen to…

Perceptions…

Several months ago, I was enjoying a beautiful dinner with some friends. We shared stories and lots of laughter. It was an evening filled with poignant moments, tears, and encouragement. As the evening was coming to a close, one of my friends made a strange comment, and it literally shifted the moment. It was a … More Perceptions…

Decisions…

If you are anything like me…you are a list maker. I have a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly list. It might be my OCD…yeah, I can admit that. And like anyone else, I had goals and plans for things to do this year! BUT guess what!  I might have checked off one major item and … More Decisions…

Everything that I must access is currently found on the Information Highway otherwise known as the Internet. Internet use to be … More Digital Fatigue…

Seek Therapy

Exhausted… Yup! These past few weeks, I have felt nothing but emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion. I avoided the news channels for a few weeks, but my social media posts seemed to keep me connected to all the current news and all the anxiety we are experiencing in our neighborhoods, state, and world. It is … More I dare to hope!

Be teachable…

This week I had the privilege of sitting with some amazing women.  They all shared their incredible journeys.  They were poignant, heartfelt stories, others were uplifting and encouraging. One theme seems to run through all of the conversations…be teachable.  Each one of them imparted some small nugget that left me filled, thinking, and challenged. I … More Be teachable…

Save Yourself

The past few weeks I have sat in several conversations where someone said, “I need to let it go” or “I’m letting it go”… it struck me that there is a marked difference in these words along with their actions and all I kept thinking was “save yourself.” “Letting go,” is a slow and sometimes … More Save Yourself

Forgiveness is difficult to give..but required…​

Warning this blog may be too revealing for some.  Read at your own risk! As a little girl, I witnessed the many times my mom would hold a grudge, and I mean that lady could hold a grudge like nobody’s business.  I promised myself I would never be that person.  That I would just forgive … More Forgiveness is difficult to give..but required…​

When will we learn…

This week my blog’s intention changed.  What I was going to write, I’ll share at another time. My heart is heavy with all that is going on in our world, our country,  in our homes, and among friends.  I’ve noticed an incredibly bitter shift in our dialogue and how we express our differences of opinion. … More When will we learn…
