Living your life…

I thought I knew what I truly wanted, but when I got it I realized I didn’t want it at all. I was in love with the illusion of what it could be and not the reality of what it truly was. Have you found yourself yearning, fantasizing, idealizing a life, a job, a relationship,... Continue Reading →

It’s really that simple…

Creating space through order! We were a lot of kids; at one given time, there were 9 of us living in a three-bedroom apartment with one bathroom! My mom was the queen of order and cleanliness. There were too many of us, and she hated the bugs that would come with uncleanliness! So! I learned... Continue Reading →

What I know for sure…

You have my heart completely! Faith... This past week I underwent several medical tests. I’ll spare you the gory details, but it places things into perspective -that’s for sure! As I recovered and sat quietly in my bedroom. I took that the time to reflect on things I know to be true, and I wanted... Continue Reading →

How did we get here so fast?

Honestly, how did we get to the beginning of the end of this year!!! It's around this time that I always sit and reflect on this past year.  The ups, the downs.  The dreams realized.  The hopes deferred.  The goals checked off.  The addition of new goals.  The losses and the gains. This year came... Continue Reading →

I needed it to be a cold blue…

I sat and cried. I thought I was okay, but I wasn’t.  The night before, I was taking my evening stroll and lectured my husband, that if anything should come back, that's questionable, I didn’t want anyone to overact. That if my tests were to prove something malignant, I wanted everyone to be strong. Yet,... Continue Reading →

Do I call?

The call came in. My father had a heart attack and is intensive care. I sit still and wait. I sit still and process what is before me. Do I love or do I walk away Do I choose to remember how he protected me or do I remember how he treated my mom? Do... Continue Reading →

You are challenged!

It was a challenge, but I did it… I unplugged from EVERYTHING for seven whole days! And by everything I mean, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, WordPress, Talk Radio (in my car) and TV! Yup, even TV. It was the most rewarding and freeing feeling I have experienced in a long time. Think about it. Twitter... Continue Reading →

Doors…​

I currently am walking through the long corridor of Menopause! I’ve found a couple of doors along the way I refuse to open and others that I couldn’t help but open, walk in, take a seat and stay for a while! In those rooms, I’ve learned lessons that have shaken me to the core and... Continue Reading →

Complicit…Are you?

Complicity the state of being an accomplice; partnership or involvement in wrongdoing: complicity in a crime. This blog became bigger than me than my opinions, experiences or conversations.  I was going through a personal experience realizing that I would be complicit in the neglect of someone I love if I did not speak up. Hence, this... Continue Reading →

Just lay down!

Why do women struggle with self-care? Why do we think if we lay down, take a nap, close off the noise we are neglectful. Why do we think that if we tell our kids I need some time alone, we are bad moms? If we say to our friends I need some space, we are... Continue Reading →

The Waiting Room (Part 2)

When his name was called, we walked into the lab room.  They asked my husband to hold Rob in his lap and hold down his little arms so that they could draw a significant amount of blood.  My husband's legs began to shake, his tears just flowed as he watched Rob so quietly, without a...

Show up …for yourself!

"We keep appointments with everyone else, but we don't show up for ourselves" - These few words literally shifted my thoughts on fitness and healthy living.   I've never ever been athletic...I would give an excuse during gym class...I think the teacher started to believe I was the "modern day woman with a flow"!  I hated...

Is it just me…or is it hot in here?

Wanna go for some Pinkberry? Sure! So we all packed into the car and headed out to get our favorite frozen yogurt.  As we sat and enjoyed our delicious yogurts, I suddenly felt like my chest was going to explode.  My heart was pounding, and I felt faint. Robert, I am not feeling well, I... Continue Reading →

Eat. Love. Pray…..and just show up!

As the youngest of seven siblings, I often wonder what could I offer my oldest in times of trouble. Well...this past year has put that to the test. David battling Leukemia and Angel battling End Stage heart disease in need of both a kidney and heart transplant has required me to... Eat, Love, Pray, and... Continue Reading →
