To Be Free

The time has come for a WordPress hiatus. I’ve felt it gnawing at me for a while, but this week it became crystal clear. I’m determined to keep the portions on my plate in balance, and there’s new opportunity just over the horizon. It’s been challenging to keep my plate clean, because I’m a doer, […]

Prioritize the Meaningful

I just logged off of work, to come over here, and finish this post. This is my happy place, but I tend to make work my first priority. I’m Finding That Balance, to prioritize the meaningful. Going through my archived posts, was one of the best things I’ve ever done. A year ago, I deleted […]

Creating That Space

Last November, I went to the lake near my home and sat down to just stare at the water. I knew there was too much on my plate, but had forgotten, I’m the one holding the spoon. My daily life was full of unfulfilling acts. Life is designed to be fulfilling, but my actions were […]

Sharing is Caring

My daughter and I love receiving packages. We’re slowly getting our life delivered to us, instead of going to public places. Bath and Body Works came in the mail, and my mail lady walked it up to my front door. (It wouldn’t fit in the mailbox) She does that with a lot of our packages, […]

A Handwritten Note

I woke up this morning, took a glance at my phone and turned it off. Yesterday was not a pretty day at work, so this morning I took some time to manage my state. To let go of yesterday and stand firmly in today. I sat down and wrote the Morning Pages. I learned about […]

Wait For It

I forced myself to stop Blogging. When I challenged myself to post a Blog a day in December, over time I hit a stride. That groove of posting everyday became a daily ritual, but was it fulfilling? On into January, I was still posting everyday, but began to slow the pace. After posting The Mindless […]

The Mindless Activity

The best ideas occur while showering. They used to form while vacuuming, but this house doesn’t have any carpet, so the vacuum isn’t used often. While washing dishes is another good mindless activity. These are things we do without thinking. They don’t take concentration, so the mind has room for an idea to surface. In […]
