Celebrate Your Life

Celebrate Your Life

Tweet Life.   It’s something we’ve been gifted. It’s ours for a limited time, to do with it as we please.   Most of us know that it’s a precious gift, a feeling reaffirmed in times of tragedy and loss. Yet how many of us treat our lives every day with the reverence it deserves? How many countless hours do we waste with what ifs, if onlys, fear, hate, resentment, anger, worry and the mother of all evils, comparison?   Comparison is … Read entire article »

Slow But Steady Gets You Places

Slow But Steady Gets You Places

Tweet Life often feels like a turtle that can, at will, morph into a rabbit. (Don’t forget to be a good turtle and read till the end. Please.)   We are often fooled into thinking that fast is better, or that if something is slow it will not get you where you want to go. I am starting to learn that it is better to be a slow steady turtle, than a lazy rabbit. A little over 15 months … Read entire article »

You Can Find Beauty If You Remember To Look

You Can Find Beauty If You Remember To Look

Tweet I think that I really owe blogging a big dose of gratitude. In the eight or so months since I started, blogging has made me look even harder at seeing the positives in life, especially in tough situations. More importantly, blogging has made me look at the world through different eyes. Things that would never have warranted a second glance I now see through different eyes. Like the other day at school when I went to use … Read entire article »

When You Blog, Everyone Worries They Will End Up On Your Blog

When You Blog, Everyone Worries They Will End Up On Your Blog

Tweet You know what? Before I even write anything else, I will confess that the title is pretty close to being right. A lot of things in my life end up being blog fodder. I write about my life and the lessons I learn from each day. By default, that means that people who are in my daily life might end up being mentioned directly or inadvertently. It does not mean that I will post anything I … Read entire article »

Blogging Can’t Replace Journaling

Blogging Can’t Replace Journaling

Tweet Even if you are anonymous, or like me a very open blogger, I have come to the conclusion that blogging can’t replace journaling. While both are good for soul searching, growing and free therapy, journaling reaches deeper in a more consistent way. As often is the case, a “coincidence” has triggered this post. For years I have been convinced that journaling is something extremely important for growth and for a person’s soul. For just as many years … Read entire article »

Winning Feels Good, But Winning Plus Gratefulness Feels Great

Winning Feels Good, But Winning Plus Gratefulness Feels Great

Tweet This is my 100th blog post. (Wow, she says to herself.) I have to say that I am really proud of myself for sticking with the writing and blogging. I know this may sound corny but I have learned a heck of a lot the past three months, especially about myself. My writing has been helping me grow as a person. And I am grateful. I am grateful to my husband for his support. Even though I … Read entire article »

It Takes Time To Learn New Things So Have Patience

It Takes Time To Learn New Things So Have Patience

Tweet I think I am writing this post in order to convince myself that it is okay not to learn everything I need to know in one day. The problem is, is that I am the impatient sort. Or I can put a really positive spin on it and say I am a go-getter, get it done kind of person. Yes, I like the way that sounds much better. Either way, when I think of an idea, I need … Read entire article »
