Rise to It

Bella Donovan Hero. The name of the coffee in the featured photo. The photo has been on my desktop for a month as something to aspire to. The man I work with lives in California. He usually sends an email while I sleep, outlining the day’s assignments. It’s customary to wake up and view the […]

Beauty from Ashes

I was nominated for The Sunshine Blogger award. Thank you Gary, for the nomination. I’m grateful each time someone nominates me, but it pains me to write a Blog that long in response, so the buck usually stops here. 🙂 If I type over 600 words in a post, I begin to hyperventilate, but I […]

You Are Amazing

I’m truly enjoying the November Soul Reset. Day Three is talking about gratitude, but not just the proverbial list. It asked me to thank myself. To say ‘thank you’ to me for being me. Consider the last time you felt thankful for yourself. Really genuinely. Not because someone told you to. But because it just […]

Badass or Stubborn

The pain in my breast woke me up early this morning. It was dark outside, but as I sat up to assess, there was light in my room coming from my phone. A friend was posting one encouraging post after another on Facebook. I just sat and read them, and then told her thank you. […]

Stay the Path

Today is my last day on “the job.” I received a text lastnight saying they had hired someone to take my place. It’s a good thing I don’t get offended anymore. I knew it was only temporary. Stepping in when it was needed, and helping to hold together what was in place. My life is […]
