The Equation is Simply Wrong

No, not that equation!  Seriously?  I can’t even do that math!   I’m talking about the equation we use to figure out what we want out of life.  Think back to when you knew what you wanted to do or what you wanted to be when you “grew up”.   What did you say to yourself whenContinue reading “The Equation is Simply Wrong”

Dream Life Living

How many of us sit and think about the life we are going to have someday? Just as soon as we have enough money… Just as soon as we have enough time… Just as soon as the kids are out of college… Just as soon as we retire… So many people don’t make it toContinue reading “Dream Life Living”

The Feels

The Holiday Season can be rough even for the best of us.  Some are grieving the loss of a loved one, some don’t get along with their family, some don’t have the money to give the gifts they would like.  I recall a couple Christmases as a single mom with no family dinner, nor giftsContinue reading “The Feels”

Love is Love

Love.  Something we cannot live without.  We desire to give and receive love- on many levels, not just romantic.  It’s basic human instinct and is vital for our soul and emotional health to thrive just as oxygen and food and water are necessary for our physical body. Why, then, is love so hard?  Why can’tContinue reading “Love is Love”

Strong Women Haters

This is a touchy subject for me.  Growing up I was called “stubborn”, “defiant”, “moody”, a “bitch”, “opinionated” – I never seemed to go along or get along in the family as the only girl with two brothers being raised by my father. For twenty years my father used all his Army Reserve Psychological OpsContinue reading “Strong Women Haters”

If there is a silver lining at all to the 2016 American Election Cycle is that we have very visible proof of what what happens when an entire nation is frozen in fear.  Both sides of the election made the entire thing about which side we needed to fear more.  And the fear-mongering continues on still.Continue reading “Fear Energy”

Forever Lasts Forever

Dearly beloved We are gathered here today To get through this thing called “life” Electric word, life It means forever and that’s a mighty long time… 2016.  The year we lost Prince.  David Bowie. Alan Rickman. Muhammad Ali. Elie Wiesel. Gene Wilder.  John Glenn.  And so many others who uplifted us, made us laugh, taught usContinue reading “Forever Lasts Forever”

Achey Breaky Heart

Sometimes the pain we feel is so intense that we think our hearts could explode.  Just know that your heart cannot actually break from this pain. Sure, stress and trauma can cause damage to your body – that’s not the kind of breaking I am talking about.  I’m talking about the kind of heart breakContinue reading “Achey Breaky Heart”

Life is Short

I’m creeping up on the 5-0 and will reach that milestone in a couple years.  On my latest birthday I got to thinking about just how different 50 is to my generation than what it was to the boomers.  At my age, my mom was a grandmother (though she looked so young) and had lessContinue reading “Life is Short”
