We’re kidding ourselves. There will never be a slowdown. Ever. Saying “after this week, things will slow down a bit” is a big, fat lie. And it should absolutely NOT be part of adulting. Adulting is stupid and overrated because of this right here. Hmmph!! Ok, thanks for rant. It’s true, though. Life ain’t aboutContinue reading “Slow. Down.”
The Faith-Fear Seesaw
I mentioned yesterday in a blog post that I attend my very first writing workshop tonight…and that I’m nervous. I also noted that fear keeps us from our dreams, though, and I ain’t about that. From my mouth to God’s ears… Last night, I cooked black-eyed peas and cornbread for me and my hubs, thenContinue reading “The Faith-Fear Seesaw”
Teaching My Daughter: Our needs come first.
“If, as a mother, I always put my needs last, I am teaching my daughter that one day [hers] won’t matter either.” @vanessacornell I don’t want to teach my daughter this, yet I live way fast and put my needs last (or ignore them completely) on the daily. It’s true. And it is one ofContinue reading “Teaching My Daughter: Our needs come first.”
“Christianity” (Intentional Quotation Marks)
I follow a number of bloggers, content writers, and authors on social media. Before, I would follow ones I related to most, funny ones, ones with good parenting perspectives. Now, though, I tend to follow them as more of a case study. What is their writing style? Tone? Vibe? How does their following respond, engage,Continue reading ““Christianity” (Intentional Quotation Marks)”
Goodreads Reviews: Oh, the horror!
I’m salty about book reviews. I track what I read on the app, Goodreads, and sometimes I pop over there and check out reviews before I grab a new book to see what other folks thought about it. I go look at reviews after I read a book, too, to see if other folks liked/hatedContinue reading “Goodreads Reviews: Oh, the horror!”
Keepin’ it real.
Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. I am aware that I may come across as Nancy lately. I have posted recently about my feeling lost, used up, tired. I’ve used the words “bitter” and “hermit”, yet truly, I’m not sorry. I want to keep it real. Before I go on, don’t get me wrong. I wantContinue reading “Keepin’ it real.”
Peace, Not Dread
Mondays should hold peace, not dread. They should be an optimistic look forward at all that’s in store for the week, rather than a reluctant look downward at my shoes as I muster the wherewithal to just get through the coming days. I want my days full of joy and hope, moments of solitude andContinue reading “Peace, Not Dread”
See The World
You don’t see the world as it is. You see it as you are. What?! I heard this yesterday. I had to write it down and read it 7 times. Is this real? Do we do this? Do I not see the world for what it really is? What even is it? Is it somethingContinue reading “See The World”
I Don’t Belong To Me
Well, hmmm. I always feel awkward writing the first post after a hiatus. What a blogger I am, right? Life progresses at warp speed. I run from hell to breakfast, and go long periods without posting then…BOOM…here I am. Sorry about that. Believe me. My mind is CONSUMED with thoughts, and I think of writingContinue reading “I Don’t Belong To Me”
