Release The Hold

Release the hold.... Have you ever had one of those days that before you even get out of bed, the to-do list is beyond long?  You muster up the courage to get out of bed and start the day only to find more is coming at you?  More requests, more questions, more changes.  At what point do you say no? Maybe the no’s should have started yesterday with all the things you added to the ...

Get Out There

Get Out There! There’s no doubt that my  group of early childhood friends is pretty awesome. It was an instant friendship that formed at the age of four, and has continued since then. They are the people I’ve counted on, and they are the people that I hope will always have my back. With all of that said, my friends and I do have some differences. Throughout the years, we’ve developed our separate hobbies and ...

A Letter To The Obscure Hero

To The Obscure Hero.... Hey there!  Yes, I’m talking to you. The one who got up super early before everyone else this morning just to enjoy a few moments of quiet and throw a load of laundry in the washer.   The one who packed lunches, brushed hair, and made bottles while her coffee sat on the counter getting cold. You!  The one who threw a cookie in her mouth on the way out the door ...

What Are Your Hobbies?

What are your hobbies?  I have hated that question since I was in school.  I have no hobbies…How do you start doing things you for you? Last Spring, I decided that I needed to do something for myself. I needed to start getting back into things.. And by things I mean, hobbies, activities, or something that I loved.  I was married for over 13 years, you have kids, and then you stop doing things that ...

Let That S*&% Go!

Let That S*&% Go!... What I am about to share may seem surprising considering I often riff about the fact I tend to hold on to things and over analyze. However, in my journey of over analyzing I’m learning there is a whole lot I need to let go. I’ve talked about this before. Now that I’m actually doing it, it’s been kind of amazing the difference it’s made in my life. Less stress for ...

No Stuffing Please

No stuffing please... When our hearts are vulnerable or wounded, feeling weak to the temptations around us, hurt from something that brought us to our knees, or just plain old SAD….. This is not the time for stuffing the void with nonsense,  It is not the time to go clothes shopping nor is it the time to peek our nose into the pantry for something delicious.  It is not the time to call an old ...

The Caretaker Of Broken Dreams

The Caretaker Of Broken Dreams.. “We’ve buried dreams, laid them deep into the earth behind us. Said our goodbyes at the grave, yet everything reminds us. God knows we ache, but he asks us to go on… how do we go on?” ~Ellie Holcomb I’d been wandering through the same leaves, the same graves… struggling to remember exactly where he was. It had been years since I’d placed my hands on the earth that held ...

I Need Another Plan

It's six months to my birthday, and I find it hardly coincidental that today I have launched an effort to find purpose and a plan for my life. I know this because for some crazy reason, shortly after I arrived to my desk at work, I decided I needed to examine every life planner known to mankind. I started on Pinterest, where all the best data and comparison shopping information can be found. Eventually, I ...

Experiencing a Setback? Push Forward

Experiencing a Setback? Push Forward. After a lengthy hiatus from writing, I’m back and am as ready as ever to trudge ahead towards my goals, and ultimately, my dream. It's amazing how easily a setback—big or small—can discourage us or even stop us from our goals and what we have set out to do. . .if we let it. For me, it started out as a simple yet paralyzing case of writer's block. Yes, writer's ...

How To Deal And Navigate The Unexpected

Navigating the Unexpected Nothing unseats us faster than things we don’t expect—events, circumstances or communications that we weren’t planning for, these are the things that have the capability to throw you if you allow it. These unexpected events can range from an unwelcome communication to some event concerning our job or children that wasn’t in our master plan.  When this stuff pops up the first thing that we want to do is REACT which usually ...
