We decided to create this space because we want to change the world. We want to live and love, help others and spread … More Recommitting to Excellence
Imagine looking through the window and seeing me sitting, surrounded by papers, and computers (yup, more than 1), tea cups, water bottles, pens, headphones and crumpled tissues….. staring into space. Can you see it? Now, see me slowly get up, and leave the mess, walk to my bedroom, and lay down on the bed with … More Performance Paralysis…. (or why can’t I do this?!)
Would I suggest we sell and move into an RV? It’s been just over 1 ½ years since we sold our 3-bedroom 2-bathroom home on 10 acres in the green swamp.

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?
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
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
