The Trim

Just a Trim.... “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” Coco Chanel We all know someone who has had the same hairstyle for eons and wham they change it. It usually is a red flashing light that something major happened or is about to happen. For the record I am that person. There is also a joke about every woman having a red hair phase… yup. My reality is a ...

When Miracles Occur

When Miracles Occur... In my quiet time this morning I was reading about perception, expectation & illusions. When we come upon a situation, we summarize our thoughts about it through our perception, our reality, our interpretation, per se.  We create our reaction to the situation based on past memories &  understandings, and previous situations that appeared to be the same.  This process is from the ego mind.  It is from our senses reminding us of ...

Look Around You

Look Around you... This past weekend, I celebrated a very special event. My “quinceañera” was a day that I had looked forward to since I was a little girl. For my Latin family and I, this birthday signified a major milestone in my life, as I was now growing up and officially being recognized as a “young woman”. We all agreed that this “major” milestone deserved a “major” party to represent its importance. All of ...

Beware The Men Or Women Behaving Badly

Beware The Men or Women Behaving Badly You can’t fix a Psychopath. You can’t fix a Sociopath. You can’t fix a Narcissist. But you can fix yourself. -K. Masters Let me start this by saying that I am not a doctor. Nothing I am about to say has anything to do with actual clinical diagnoses. I can only tell my story (and of course just my side) and let you decide for yourself and gain ...

Giving Your Kids Independence

Last Saturday, My 12 year old daughter asked if her and her friend could ride their bikes around town for the day.  They wanted to go to Dairy Queen for lunch, then they wanted to ride to the dollar store, target and caribou after that..which are all a couple miles of our house.  I was hesitant… she is obviously old enough for this independence but it scared me a little to let her go. I ...

How To Mother When You’ve Been Motherless

How to Mother when you've been motherless... Friday night, sitting on the steps facing the front door waiting. Always waiting. Hushed whispers behind me as my Dad takes a call from my mom. I let out a deep sigh as my brothers give up and head back upstairs knowing what Dad is going to come say. I don’t give up I wait, she promised, and I believed her. My dad comes and takes a seat ...

On Being In Love

In one of my other blog posts, I wrote about the feeling of limerence, or basically, the “in love” feeling. It may have seemed that I downplayed the emotion, and the truth of the matter is that I meant to at the time. I have tossed it around in my head quite a lot lately and have reframed it some. I think it is important, in life, that we reassess and reevaluate our thoughts and ...

So It Begins

And so it begins...Earlier this week as I was getting ready for work my daughter noticed the sweatshirt I was wearing and announced she wanted it. Luckily I have more than one version of said sweatshirt and I pulled the one I wasn’t wearing from its hanger and handed it to her. She clapped her hands put it on and was attached to it for the better part of three days until I finally snuck ...

Look Up Look Out

Look Up...Look Out... This morning was a tough one. The darkest thoughts that come along with living alone started to rear their ugly heads and take over my thinking. I felt myself going down the rat hole. That is NOT a good place to go. I know that for certain. I started to oppose the deep dark voice. “Ohhhhh…. NO…. Not Today!!!”… “This is NOT happening today!” and then immediately, it bit back with, “You will always be alone”. I reminded myself that those are the fearful words ...

Do It For Yourself With No Guilt

Do It For Yourself With No Guilt I didn’t realize that I wanted to do so many things in life.  I didn’t realize that I didn’t share a lot of the same goals and interests as my husband.  I would always feel guilty for wanting to do the things I enjoyed.  So I just went along with everything.  You know when just do what you think you should be doing or don’t speak up for ...
