It has been a little over 3 weeks since my procedure. The good news is that my concerns over the loss of function, the size of the excision and the unknown elements of recovery were considerably less than anticipated and with that I am relieved and grateful. I needed this gratitude as I endured 2…… Continue reading Nothing is Permanent…
My last post was exactly one year ago. While it has been quite a year, the reflection required, the effort required to begin again and navigate the changes that this year has brought, I felt compelled to take a look back and not only give this blog a proper ending, but wrap it up at…… Continue reading What is it that you have learned my dear?
Personal reflection is part of my daily ritual. Learning lessons and implementing those lessons are what drive growth and feed resilience. With the end of the year upon me, I am not reaching for something new, but looking to enhance the lessons I have finally “gotten” this year. These lessons? It’s ok to quit something…… Continue reading The Dash…
I recently celebrated a birthday….44…meh. Admittedly, 40 was GREAT. I felt good in all aspects of my life. Hitting this milestone and feeling this good in my body and mind was an accomplishment and the comments of “just you wait”, were pshawed and met with an eye roll. My rationale was, as long as I…… Continue reading Smoke and Mirrors….
I know. It’s been awhile. The last month of 2017 and the first few months of 2018 have been wild to say the least. Evacuations, natural disasters and all sorts of chaos, uprooting and needs to be met far greater than my own have been preoccupying my time….or so I told myself. To be honest, …… Continue reading Where have you been?
Today marks the 25th anniversary of my Dad’s passing. Yes, 25 years. I say this with the most seriousness…..the importance of a positive male role model in a girl’s life is critically important. Whether it be from basic life lessons (i.e. how to be treated, how to change a tire, how to balance a checkbook,…… Continue reading A daughter’s thank you….
I am not going to lie, something has my soul churning as of late. Maybe it’s the heat, maybe it’s the time of year, maybe it’s my 40-something body and hormones, maybe it’s the damn moon. Whatever it is, I have, once again, felt like I need to run through a brick wall. Just when…… Continue reading My wish for the universe…
Inspiration…a noun, right? According to definition, yes, but I also see it as a verb, a state of being. Similar to happiness, this is something that needs constant action. It is an exchange of energy requiring presence between myself and those around me and/or the environment surrounding me. Admittedly, there are days when the search…… Continue reading Got inspiration? Inspire others….
I’ve thought a bit on this post, essentially, whether or not to share this information with all of you. You see, this is probably the most embarrassing and private struggle for me that I have yet to find success….personal, intimate relationships. I have had huge success in my professional life, but personally, it has always…… Continue reading Connecting….in an online world
I wanted to re-post this. I find gratitude in the moments I have been blessed with to be motherly, to provide guidance and self-less care. Happy Mother’s Day…. It warmed my heart to see all of the Mother’s Day posts on social media yesterday. Everyone taking time out to recognize their Mom or the…… Continue reading Wait…are you a Mom?
