  • You Can’t Know

    You Can’t Know

    How much time have I spent in my life wishing I just knew? Because if I knew what was coming, I wouldn’t be so afraid to make that next decision. The one I can not make because I’m afraid of what might happen. If I only knew. I have spent a lot of my life […]

  • Chosen and Unchosen Changes

    Chosen and Unchosen Changes

    I’ve noticed how I feel differently about my life as we pass the one year anniversary of the beginning of the pandemic of 2020. I feel a lot calmer. How did that happen? Because changes happened, both by choice and by time. I found myself saying no to a string of requests for my time […]

  • Change Nothing and Nothing Changes

    Change Nothing and Nothing Changes

    What did you choose to do this morning. Your morning routing, is it set as something you just do without thinking? Do you like it or do you sometimes wish there was change. What about your evenings? Are you a person who stays up or sleeps? Do you eat crap at nighttime and wish you […]

  • The Daunting Freedom of Choice to Fail

    The Daunting Freedom of Choice to Fail

    I have written ad nauseam about the amazing gift we have to choose our lives. We get to choose our lifestyles and who we call community. We get to choose what we believe and how we practice what we believe, where we spend our money and where we don’t. And while it’s a giddy freedom […]

  • Choose to Not Choose is Still a Choice

    Choose to Not Choose is Still a Choice

    She rather vehemently insisted that there are no choices. Thank you very little, she understands the concept of “everything is a choice”, just not for her. She’s resigned to that comfortable hell of nothing changes because perhaps it is too overwhelming to consider those other choices. To allow for change would be to admit that […]

  • Edit Your Story and Persist with Faith Like Cinderella

    Edit Your Story and Persist with Faith Like Cinderella

    The story that is our life, up to a certain point, is written and told by others. We do not choose our parents or where we are born or the social status we are born into. Nor do we have control over who keeps us alive and what they teach us as littles. Our lives […]

  • I Forget Myself

    I Forget Myself

    Am trying to find my way back to me. Seems my fear of vulnerability and my Impostor Syndrome regularly derail me from my course settings and I find myself off-roading, distracted by the current tasks and scenery, and I soon forget what it was I was doing. I forget how much I’ve already accomplished. I […]

  • Letting Go of What No Longer Serves You

    Letting Go of What No Longer Serves You

    Recently my friend closed her shop down. It was the absolute right thing for her to do. The shop was taking more than it was giving back and it was time for them to break up. I can remember having to make that soul-crushing decision with my shop. And this made me feel sad for […]

  • Perspective Saves You From Feeling Sucky and Unlucky

    Perspective Saves You From Feeling Sucky and Unlucky

    During the first week of school, Eamon’s teacher told the class that Bullies don’t know, or care,  that you are very important to someone in your life. You are just not too important to the bully, who in turn wishes those people in his/her life who supposedly love him/her would act like it. It’s your […]

  • Addiction Pimps Out Your Anxieties to Feed its Need

    Addiction Pimps Out Your Anxieties to Feed its Need

    Fear, anxiety, and addiction work together in a hooker and pimp relationship. In order to quell the fear of death or abandonment, an addiction was created to cope. Not the truth necessarily but our primitive brains think it is. The addiction is then an alleviation of the fear of something that isn’t true. Often the […]
