My hair is purple, right in the front. It’s been blonde, even red, but purple…it’s kind of my thing. It’s fun. I get compliments on it all the time. People ask me questions about it, too. Is it permanent? (Yes.) Do you do it yourself? (Heck no.) Does your husband like it? (Yes.) Is itContinue reading “Identity Crisis?”

Evolution, Authenticity, Random Thoughts
It’s funny how I’m going through this big life change, this evolution of thought, this reprioritization…all while the world keeps turning. I write about all that here for many reasons: writing practice, journaling, tracking my progress, accountability, to hopefully relate to others, to motivate people, to raise awareness for this and that, to entertain… ThereContinue reading “Evolution, Authenticity, Random Thoughts”
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.”
Healthy Choices Today
Progress, People! Whole foods only and lots of water! Nothing more motivating than seeing myself in the mirror dancing with my kids last night. Other than all this, I just feel like I better watch my health. It can get away from us, you know. You must start going through a thing in your 40’sContinue reading “Healthy Choices Today”
20 Ways To Love Yourself
1) Don’t respond to that email, text, or phone call. 2) Let that housework wait; it will still be there later. 3) Take a shower, smell good, and show up with your chin up. 4) Say “no” with a smile, because you really are too busy to take on another thing. 5) Don’t put upContinue reading “20 Ways To Love Yourself”
It makes me tired.
I’ll just go ahead and say it, because I know y’all are thinking it, too. Sometimes, I don’t want to hear about other people’s problems. Anybody’s. The world’s. The economy’s. Whoever. Whatever. It makes me tired. There. It’s out…for all of us. That doesn’t sound very nice, I know, but seriously. I just don’t haveContinue reading “It makes me tired.”
Tell me I’m not the only one who gets up and makes up the bed, then stands there and does a quick calculation of the time that must pass until you get to get back in it again. And yeah, I’m one of those “million pillows on the bed” chicks.
Sorry I’m Late…
“Sorry I’m late. I didn’t want to come.” Have y’all seen that? It’s how I’ve been feeling about TILTs and posting until I can get this week behind me. Whew! I bought myself this book to start next week, but I couldn’t wait. I’m about 15 pages in, and there are so many gems, IContinue reading “Sorry I’m Late…”
Vulnerability Is Terrifying
“Vulnerability is terrifying.” That was the first line of a meme I saw this morning. So true. To be authentic takes vulnerability, and because it truly is terrifying to put yourself out there, that may explain why people don’t seem very “real” these days. They’re scared. I think people are walking around with their guardsContinue reading “Vulnerability Is Terrifying”
Sick of Shiny
I am a collector of quotes. I like inspirational sayings, motivating verses, and passages that hit home. I have a whole Pinterest board related to them, as well as various and sundry clippings, post-its, and cut outs of gems that struck a chord. But sometimes I get sick of shiny. I don’t want to seeContinue reading “Sick of Shiny”
