As part of my 12-step program I have learned that most of my bad decisions have been the result of fear. I feel fear – so I react, fight or flight. I lash out or I shrink away. Even if the surface emotion is different when I look closely the core belief or emotion is … More Choose Love
It blew my mind that I almost got scammed. Not that I believe that I am better than others that have gotten scammed, actually it is more so that I doubt the ‘to good to be true’ so much that sometimes I know I miss opportunities. This time though, I did the research and while … More Almost Scammed
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Time marches on, even as we are sheltered in our home. Time doesn’t stand still just because it seems that our world has derailed. Even though some days may feel as if the minutes crawl by, in reality time is moving at the same pace as it always has. It is … More What Are You Thinking About?
Coronavirus. Covid-19. 2020 hasn’t started out the way that many of us expected. I am not going to downplay the seriousness of it. I am not here to discuss it. This post is actually to take advantage of the cards we currently have been dealt, to get you and I thinking in a positive way … More A Time For Reflection
This morning I was thinking about the fact that in January, our daughter Jorjia achieved 4 years clean and sober. So, about 5 years ago, she was in active addiction and homeless. I was in awe thinking of the changes that have happened in those 5 years. Honestly, 5 years ago I couldn’t hand her … More 5 Years of Changes
Today is Jorjia’s 4th anniversary for her sobriety. It’s kind of like it is her re-birthday. Her new life of sobriety started 4 years ago today. ￼ I remember celebrating the daily, weekly and monthly victories; as she began this walk. 100 days which then led into 6 months, and finally that 1st year clean … More Happy 4th Re-Birthday!
Tears burning behind my eyes, Satan whispering constant lies. I never can do anything right, Just quit, stop, give up the fight. The pain it presses deep within, Screaming in the depths of me, I will not overcome this sin, I am a failure – I can not win, I am a loser and will … More Worthless
Ever heard the phrase – my tongue was in front of my eyeteeth so I couldn’t see what I was saying? I’ve heard it for years. It’s kind of a funny way of justifying when you misspoke yourself. So what would you say when you realize not that you’ve misspoken yourself but that you have … More What’s Wrong With Me?
Sniffles and coughs. Sore throat and tissues. Aches and pains. Chills and sweats. Blanket and snuggles. As much as I don’t like to see my son feeling sick, it still touches my mama heart that he wants me near him. At 17 years old, that isn’t always the case. This morning when I came back … More Not Feeling Well
The first time that I remember someone telling me that I was being selfish and not thinking of others – not only shocked me – but made me angry! Who did they think they were?! Mind you, this was actually in a room full of people and this speaker was talking to everyone. But it … More Who Are You Thinking Of?
