Faith than Fear

To be a Badass woman, you gotta have a mentor. Another badass woman. My friend sent me this meme this morning. It was in her FB memories, and I had tagged her on it two years ago. Today she returned it and it’s just what I needed to see. This is the same friend I […]

Pause and Breathe

Chocolate makes everything better. As I’m standing in line with a bag of chocolate eggs, I saw this magazine. Just seeing it poured a bucket of calm over me, so it was added to my purchase. Trusting where you are today matters for who you’ll be tomorrow. I believe those words. I’ve watched them come […]

Maybe You’ve Changed

My daughter made my Chemex this morning. She was getting ready to leave for classes, but paused long enough to do that. That’s true love. She stayed home this weekend, so I didn’t make weekend plans. I just wanted to hang out with her in that weekend vibe. Life has her on a rapid schedule […]

A Full Bloom

I’m reading Stephanie’s book, “An Accidental Awakening.”, and it’s food for my soul. There’s a part in it I read yesterday that felt as if she was talking straight to me. What she describes has happened to me too, but I’ve fallen away from taking heed. It happened again this morning. The first time you […]

Trust Your Crazy

I do some crazy looking stuff. Like molding butter to fit the butter dish. Yes, I have a Pioneer Woman Butter Dish, and it’s a little wide for one stick of butter to fill, so I buy a slab of butter. Let it get room temperature, and mold it with my hands to fit the […]

Showers That Shine

“Get your shit together”, is what I’d tell her. Of course, I was referring to her need to pack for her weekend with her Dad. She was much younger then, but now that’s she’s a young adult, we say it to one another in jest. Hugging her goodbye I’d say, “I’ll try and get my […]

Making a Mistake

To follow my heart a little bit more. That’s what I want to do, but that voice of reason came calling this morning and warned me of past mistakes. Was it really a mistake, or just part of the path that landed me here? This quote was in my FaceBook memories. I’ve learned so much […]

Get Over Yourself

That’s what my sponsor would say. When I felt alone, or decided to have a pity party, she would encourage me to look outside myself. To find a need and fill it. Not my own need, but the needs of others. The first line in one of my favorite books, ‘The Purpose Driven Life’ says, […]

Let’s Get Real

Thank you for requesting a handwritten note. (You know who you are) They’ve all been mailed. I don’t know one of the people very well that requested a note, so I just sat down and shared my morning. Each word written was like she was sitting at the table with me. I hope she can […]

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 […]
