I don’t believe in placing a moratorium on dreams. Dreams should be plentiful regardless of your age, how much money is in your bank account, or whether or not you went to college. I don’t care if you are fit and spry, arthritic and slow, or fat and happy. It doesn’t matter if you’ve gotContinue reading “Don’t stop dreaming.”

Worry vs. Faith
Sister, you can’t worry AND rely on faith at the same time. You’ve been worrying, and that’s fine. Now…enough of that. Remember that worry places focus on the worst possible outcomes. Faith focuses on desirable outcomes. Which should fill your head and heart? Lean on your faith, even if you only have a little.
Faith Over Worry

Exposure Therapy. Do y’all know what that is? It’s what it sounds like. It’s when you’re forced to do something, face something, experience something, to be able to move past it. You move past it by exposing yourself to it, then realizing nothing really comes of it as you had imagined might. *poof* It’s likeContinue reading “Exposure Therapy”
Writer. Author. Obstacles. Support.
I have always, always wanted to write a book. I still do. The feat of compiling 50,000+ words into a succinct, meaningful read, holding in my hands the actual book with a glossy cover, seeing it on a bookstore shelf, finding it offered for sale on Amazon, getting an email from someone who was inspiredContinue reading “Writer. Author. Obstacles. Support.”
Embrace doing nothing.
Overachievers, Workaholics, and People Pleasers, listen to me… You are NOT doing nothing. This weird week between Christmas and New Year’s Day, know that if you use your downtime to sleep, read, watch TV, work a crossword puzzle, sew, eat cheese, sit and stare out the window, whatever, you ARE doing something. You are resting.Continue reading “Embrace doing nothing.”
Reflections of 2022…yep, I think many of us are in the process of looking back over the last year lately, either consciously or subconsciously, and taking an inventory of life’s events. We are reminiscing fondly with a warm smile in our hearts, or we find ourselves visibly wincing as we recount the unsavory. For me,Continue reading “Goodbye, 2022.”
Get Real About Suicide. Please.
An icon in the dance world died today. He killed himself with a single gun shot…in a hotel room…away from his home, away from his children, away from his wife, away from the community of dancers, artists, and people who loved him. It seems he left his house, got a hotel room, did it. That’sContinue reading “Get Real About Suicide. Please.”
Bad church? Bad church people?
People do stupid stuff. They say the wrong things. They’re clique-y and exclusive. They fail to offer a smile or speak to you when you walk by, even if you smile or speak first. Sometimes they’re envious, judgemental, gossipy, and self-righteous. Oh, and I’m talking about some people at church. Yep, we got mad atContinue reading “Bad church? Bad church people?”
Be the content.
I read a lot about how to blog, since I pretty much suck at it, at least consistency-wise. I read a tip recently that stood out… Be the content. Hmmm. I don’t know now. When I started this little endeavor a while back, I was set on being open and honest, sharing even the rawestContinue reading “Be the content.”
