Moment For One

We’ve enjoyed cool mornings this week in Texas. The front door is open so the screen door is being enjoyed. As I look around the house, I see things that need to be done. The floor is so dirty thanks to the doggos, but that dirt is not going anywhere without my assistance, so it […]

On Your Desktop

I was looking at files saved to the desktop of my laptop and thinking, “It really shows who you are.” A man I work with asked me to help him test some software. He needed to assist a client remotely, so I let him access my computer. When he was done clicking around, he backed […]

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, […]

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 […]

Saying ‘thank you‘ to that woman in the mirror for showing up. Seeing the words, ‘Well-being Wednesday’ and relating completely. Owning my worth and no longer giving away my worthiness. Honor your story my darling, but keep adding to it. The story will become new along with you.

Worth Every Minute

This sign hangs in between my bedroom windows. It’s one of the first things I see each morning and sometimes I’ll walk in and look at it throughout the day as a gentle reminder. Trust the magic of beginnings. My daughter has this sign sitting in between her windows. Yes, I love signs and it […]

Be a Stopper

I’m not very good at quitting. As soon as that thought entered my mind, another thought followed. ‘You don’t have to quit, but you can stop.’ I’m good at stopping. ♥ ♥ ♥ In speaking with a co-worker he said something that has been rolling around my mind for a week. We don’t know each […]

Lay it Down

My favorite time to meditate is at night. I’ve been drifting off to peaceful sleep like a child, listening to mindful sleep on Simple Habits. Oren Jay Sofer is the narrator of this meditation and his voice alone will soothe you to sleep. Lastnight, he discussed Contentment. How does that feel? Something he does in every […]
