Working and Writing

I’ve heard you don’t have to be ‘in the mood’ to write. You can just sit down at any time and write, but I believe the mood will reflect in your writing. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s not about finding time, because we all have the same amount of time. It’s sitting down everyday and… Continue reading Working and Writing

Self Care Sunday

I texted my daughter, “When you walk out of Whole Foods with a French baguette, hearts of Romaine, and Stumptown Chocolate cold brew?” She replied, “Sounds like self-care to me!” Sunday feels like an appropriate day for self care as it was planned to be. My work doesn’t offer much time off on Sunday, so… Continue reading Self Care Sunday

One More Time

The most gratifying part of Blogging is the readers. You never know who you’re gong to reach, or who your words will touch. The phrase, “I’m just gonna write in hopes that someone needs to read it”, has served me well. The good night’s sleep series was fun to write, but my reward was you… Continue reading One More Time

A Simple Habit

There’s a purple, leather notebook laying open all day. A silver and purple pen rests on top of the pages ready to write. The dark purple ribbon lays across the page marked with today’s date. This is where I write my tiny things attributing to the self-trust cultivator, or as you fondly call it, The… Continue reading A Simple Habit

You Be You

In Walk like Wind, I wrote about my hesitation of being tall. That’s what I was really getting at with yesterday’s post. Wearing the boots make me even taller, but I’m embracing it. We are each uniquely made, so we don’t have to try and be different. We already are. I came home to a… Continue reading You Be You

Two of Everything

When my daughter and I first began living this life together, you could look around and see two of everything. The house has two bedrooms. There’s two overstuffed chairs in the den. Two blankets on a nearby shelf readily available. We created a life for two. It’s time to open my heart for more. I… Continue reading Two of Everything

Quiet and Stillness

I want to listen for Him more. He’s not loud, nor does He speak with a booming voice to try and rise above the noise. He doesn’t have to. For me, God whispers to my heart in the quiet and stillness. It’s difficult to find quiet and stillness, but you can create it. There’s a… Continue reading Quiet and Stillness

It’s So Extra

I’m making way too much out of this magazine, but I’m in love with it. Waiting in line at a bookstore when I saw it, it just stood there and drew me in. If you need something beautiful this is it. If you need inspiration for your writing, this is it, or if you need… Continue reading It’s So Extra

This Quiet Season

I sat in my bed this morning, and had a talk with God. He has a plan, but I just wanted to share my requests. I’m in a quiet season of my life. It’s been this way for months, but I’m learning to sit with it. After He healed my Breast Cancer last year, I… Continue reading This Quiet Season

Rooted in Real

After I Bled Out, a shift happened, and I wanted real. I’ve been a part of and seen the effects social media has on well-being. It wasn’t healthy for me, so I stepped away, and have no desire to go back. This Blog hasn’t been connected to any social media for weeks, but people are… Continue reading Rooted in Real
