Indepen-dance

Happy 4th! There’s a bunch of posts about the birth of our nation, and I’m sure there are some that are going to get into the politics of it all…  But I wanted to focus on something a little different. Quick question – When’s the last time you experienced JOY? Joy is an emotion thatContinue Reading “Indepen-dance”

3 things to remember when you’re in a funk

I’ll be the first to admit when I’m cranky. Sometimes it’s between moon cycles, sometimes it’s seasons of the year, sometimes it’s seasons of life in general. There’s just something about that ‘in between’ space that feels super uncomfortable.  It can take time to get used to changes. Transitions can be rough. Any time there is aContinue Reading “3 things to remember when you’re in a funk”

Getting to the root of it

There are lots of plant references in life. There’s family trees, grass being greener on the other side of the fence, growing like a weed.  You get the picture…  One of the ones that has always been intriguing is “getting to the root of it”. “It” could be anything from a physical issue to mentalContinue Reading “Getting to the root of it”

Quietly Strong

I’m sure you’ve heard it said – “hurt people, hurt people”. If you’ve been reading my posts for any length of time, you know that shifting out of victim mode is ‘my thing’.  I am a huge proponent of looking at things from another angle so as to gain confidence and power versus sitting onContinue Reading “Quietly Strong”

Happily ever after…

Weddings have always been emotional for me. There’s so much hope and celebration around the love that finds itself at the front of the church (or field, or pavilion, or wherever). There is a hope that the two exchanging vows are destined for greatness, forever battling the everyday tasks together, and lifting each other upContinue Reading “Happily ever after…”

Am I skinny yet?

I took a core class at the gym last Thursday. I truly felt like I was going to die during the class. It was AN HOUR. That’s a long time to be working on muscles that haven’t worked that hard since giving birth in 2010 to my youngest.  I talked about it in my inauguralContinue Reading “Am I skinny yet?”

Full moon tonight

Oh joy – a full moon. I don’t know about you, but I totally understand where the word “lunatic” came from.  I’m feeling blah, and discontented, and anxious, and excited, and optimistic, all at the same time.  On edge is how I can best describe it… (even writers have trouble finding the words sometimes).  I’mContinue Reading “Full moon tonight”

When you feel like giving up (part 4)

AKA – Betrayal So, we’ve all experienced betrayal at some point.  It could be as simple as your friend picking someone else for the dodge ball game, or as complicated as adultery.  When the rubber hits the road, betrayal sucks. I thought it was the job of my dreams I thought I was being groomedContinue Reading “When you feel like giving up (part 4)”

What’s that little voice?

Get out of my head!! That damn Negative Nelly and her committee of nay-sayers invaded my mind yesterday… I couldn’t quite figure out why she was so verbal! I’d gotten pretty good over the last few years/months/weeks at telling her to shut the hell up.  But over the weekend she was back. Where does thatContinue Reading “What’s that little voice?”
