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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

The price of silence…

It seemed so innocent. A post...I left a comment and then... BANG!!!   Just like that, I was entangled in a thread that left my head spinning.  I offered what I thought was an educated opposing comment to something a relative posted. What I didn't know at that moment, that they were not inviting opposing... Continue Reading →

Set three goals…

I challenge you!!! Set three goals for the next year! One that is attainable One that requires a bit of work One that is so out of your reach will take a miracle!!! I challenge everyone to put their faith to the test and see what GOD can do through you! I love writing goals... Continue Reading →

Stillness…

 We are surrounded by so much noise that we forget what the sound of silence feels like! As this season of busyness approaches it’s important to take a moment, day, whatever you can spare and center yourself. The holidays can be emotionally and physically draining.  Filled with exhilaration or unimaginable sadness for others. Be... Continue Reading →

It made​ me think…twice

This past weekend I had a moment to watch a documentary on Netflix that made me think twice. "Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates" - I know, I know most cynics will say what can one of the richest men in the world teach me that his money has not solved for him. Well...compassion.  ...

Year of Yes…

It's that time of year... I sit still and spend time meditating and asking God to reveal to me what the focus of the new year will be for me, my marriage, my family,  and my businesses. Immediately He prompted these words; it will be the Year of Yes. My heart stopped...what, Yes! NO!!!!! I... 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 →

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... 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 →

My words…have traveled​!

On May 8, 2017, I posted my very first blog.  Little did I know that those words would travel the world.  My intention for the blog is to inspire, educate, and entertain.  Have I achieved that these past two years, I would hope so?  I desire to always leave the reader with a new perspective....
