Try something new

Every time I go to the grocery store I park in the same place.  I mean the same place for about 20 years. It's just a habit I don't even think about. Last week I got totally silly and parked on the other side of the store, I couldn't even see the place where I usually...

Friends for a reason

Aren't those old sayings something else?  Those words that your Mom or Grandma used to say that got dismissed as ridiculous, then as you move through life you realize it's the opposite - they nailed it.  I've been thinking about one of them lately:   There...

Letting yourself go

Have you ever heard someone say "she's really let herself go"?  What the heck is that all about?  I've been thinking and the phrase seems to carry different meanings.  We let ourselves 'go' for many reasons, things like: *we no longer recognize the true...

Fitting it all between the cracks

Living a full life often means fitting things between the cracks.  The thing that we are passionate about and brings us joy gets stuffed between doing the laundry and being a chauffeur. Do you ever feel like you're not able to gain any traction because you are stuck...

Thoughts on keeping it real

I'm curious if the people closest to you know your deepest desires, what is most important to you?  Are you keeping it real or choosing silence? Talking about our very biggest dream makes us feel so flipping vulnerable, it's scary biz.  So we lock it away, keep it our...

Here’s an idea to make your heart sing!
