(Certain parts of this blog are excepts from my book, "Reigning in the Storm" available on Amazon) I hate being lost! Sometimes I secretly wish that I was that person that welcomed those opportunities of being lost and viewed them as an adventure. Me? As soon as I miss my exit off the freeway in … Continue reading Lost in the Storm
One of the most significant things I have learned is that the journey to fulfilling your purpose can be lonely at times. Reason being is that not everyone will “get it.” Whether ill-intentioned or not, there are people who tell others what they think that person should do with their life. And unfortunately, the result is … Continue reading The Majority Doesn’t Always Win
The other day when I was driving, I noticed a vehicle not too far in front of me that was displaying a flag with the name of presidential candidate on it. Pause here and know that this blog is NOT in any shape or form about politics, just using that as an example. Seeing that … Continue reading Can You Keep a Secret?
“What if I should have taken that job instead of this job?” “What if I should have left sooner?” “What if I should have chosen someone else?” “What if I should have majored in that instead of this?” “What if I should have_________?” The list is endless, right?

(A 6-month lease will have you rethinking putting even one nail in the wall and sacrificing a deposit!) I’ve examined these walls pretty thoroughly and … Continue reading Don’t Focus on the Speck on the Wall
“I like our life.” Hearing these four simple words made me breathe a bit easier and made my heart happy as my daughter said them to me. J said this to me several weeks ago while we were out for an evening walk together and honestly, after about a month of dealing with craziness, this was … Continue reading It REALLY is the Little Things
My boyfriend and I are as opposite as opposite can be in many ways, but we have some significant similarities that revolve around our outlook on life. But let’s talk about some of the differences. I’m 40 and he’ll be 49 next month. He’s from Kentucky…a state, if I’m being 100% honest, never really crossed … Continue reading How Do You Gain Your Energy?
When you think of hiding, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Maybe your mind immediately conjures up thoughts of the childhood game Hide & Seek.
