It’s okay to change your mind…

“Changing your mind does not mean you’re unstable. It just means what you thought was going to work for you, isn't going to work at all” (Annette) A few weeks ago, this thought came to me, and I realized we often feel bad for changing our minds, not for ourselves, but the guilt of the...

He said, “we have a beautiful life….” I didn’t understand....until I did. All I knew was my heart was broken; how can that be called a beautiful life. I let the words settle until the realization of what he was saying became greater than my simple understanding. Our life is beautiful- Every test  Every trial... Continue Reading →

Shards…

I often wondered how many of us are walking around with shards in our hearts that we simply can’t talk about because it just hurts too much. I understand that pain. I am learning to soften the scars left behind by the shards that ripped through my heart. I am processing the pain I have... Continue Reading →

What Comfort looks life…

Comfort comes in many ways Comfort comes in silence Comfort comes in flowers Comfort comes in food Comfort comes in lyrics Comfort comes in conversations Comfort comes in breathing Someone once told me as long as we are alive everything and everyone is redeemable. I take comfort in those words. ----------

Unpredictable Outcome…(excerpt)

The audacity of writing. I have felt strongly in my heart to write about my faith journey and its outcome. It's unconventional, but here are some hard truths which are embedded in my heart that I need to share. This is a small excerpt of what is a much lengthier chapter. It is my hope...

Digital Fatigue…

Several days ago I was asked to join some girlfriends on Zoom to "just talk" and I took a hard pass. I thought I'd never say this, but I am officially experiencing digital fatigue. Everything that I must access is currently found on the Information Highway otherwise known as the Internet. Internet use to be... Continue Reading →

I dare to hope!

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... Continue Reading →

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 is time to ….pivot!

This global quarantine has exposed the best and worst of us. Who will survive? Who will thrive? I spent the first three months submitted to focused stillness- then BAM! The physical/social distancing kicked in...and I struggled!! You see, the first three months were my decisions, my choices, my focus.  When the self - distancing was... Continue Reading →

1, 8, 3 – They Say…

I was reluctant at first.  Another quiz?  Another label? Aye...really...but I did it. I took the Enneagram Test. I subjected myself to the algorithms that would accurately describe in detail my personality type.  Did I learn anything new?  Nah, not really. What I did learn is the test revealed that I apparently do live in... Continue Reading →

A Seat at my table…

During this physical distancing time, I have re-organized my closets, my dresser, the kitchen cabinets, my office desk, and the bookshelves. I have sorted in stacks of what I will keep, donate, and throw away. So it occurred to me, what in my relationships do I need to re-organize? How am I relating to the... Continue Reading →

I thought I was done…

Three years and over 100  blog posts, I thought I had written enough, said enough, encouraged enough, brought enough insight, and it was time to wrap my blog in a beautiful, pretty bow. I didn't believe that my weekly blogging had many legs left, and this was going to be my last post. BUT GOD!... Continue Reading →

Lessons during Quarantine…

Letting go requires self-control. Read that again...slowly. By definition, self-control requires -restraint exercised over one's own impulses, emotions, or desires. When we let something go, when we release control of all things, self-control must take front and center.  In our human nature, when we let things go, we panic, fear sets in, and we immediately...

You are safe…

The other day I read the funniest tweet ever... “been quarantined with my wife for four weeks now. At this point, I have more risk of getting killed by her than by a crummy virus."  I laughed out loud and shared it with my friends and especially my husband. I couldn’t help but think how...

A few questions…

Who will we be when all of this is said and done? An interesting season in our world.  Forcing us to look at each other and deal with our families, our finances, and our environment. Requiring us to pay attention to the details. I have pondered several questions and wanted to share them with you... Continue Reading →

Sixteen Months in my life…

  I logged on and there I was. A virtual classroom with attorneys and legal counsel from all around the world. Here I was a housewife/mom/blogger/former podcast host gearing up to learn and take in as much information as I could possibly understand about the LAW!! Who was I kidding? This was going to prove...

Coincidence…I think not!

Coincidence - the occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection. (Merriam-Webster) Have you ever thought and said to yourself, wow, that’s such a funny coincidence? Oh my goodness, how crazy is that? Or that can’t be possible? What are the chances? All comments that connect to what we believe... Continue Reading →

I am no longer asking for permission…

All my life, I've made measured decisions. Is this a good idea?  Will it be disrespectful?  Will I hurt someone's feelings?  Will I be judged? Will they stop being my friend?  Am I talented enough? Will I be pretty enough?  Will I be smart enough?  Will I be respected?  Will they accept me? As I've... Continue Reading →

Now what…

Here it is -  16 months, of school, completed and now what? I found myself experiencing a real sense of anxiety. I normally am not one to get anxious.  I'm pretty laid back about things. I wait and pray and trust. Yet I found myself panicking and fretting and worrying about what is next?  What was... Continue Reading →
