Rebounds, Meltdowns, and Grief

Is there such a thing as a rebound job?  Like when you are dating someone and then break up, the next relationship is supposed to be your rebound relationship.  It's typically not going to go anywhere.  It's just there to act as a springboard to get you back into the world of dating new people.  … Continue reading Rebounds, Meltdowns, and Grief

“I am looking for a dare to be great situation.”

Exhausting!  That is the only way to describe this week.  Thank God it's done.  This weekend is going to be a giant ctrl-alt-delete, and next week it'll start all over. I interviewed this week for a job that I really wanted.  I thought it went well, but I found out the next day that I … Continue reading “I am looking for a dare to be great situation.”


I have a set of scripture-prayer cards.  I received them as a gift this past Mother's Day, but have not given them much of a look.  If you've read my last couple of posts then you know that I am struggling a bit with who am I and what I am supposed to be doing. … Continue reading Baggage

No good. Worthless. Won’t amount to anything.

I've been going to several job interviews over the last month.  I've interviewed for positions at a florist, day care center, behavioral therapy clinic, newspaper, and much more.  I have interviewed from one end of town to the other, and sometimes even into the next town.  I'm not used to doing job interviews, having only … Continue reading No good.

Identity loss

I am getting a wonderful and unique opportunity that not many people get in their life.  I get the chance to decide again what I want to be when I grow up. Remember when you were a kid and everyone would ask you, "what do you want to be when you grow up?"  You'd tell … Continue reading Identity loss

Oh look, a squirrel

How noisy is your life? Do you even hear the noise in your life anymore? I'm referring to all of the noise:  automobiles driving up and down your street, the hum of the fridge, chirping birds, your kids, the television, the sound of your computer running, the unique creaks and groans that hour home makes, … Continue reading Oh look, a squirrel

Grandma’s wisdom

I'm having a pity-party day at work.  It's a good ol' woe-is-me kind of day.  For the last few months I've been in a funk.  I've attributed it to too much work, too many commitments, not enough me-time or time with my family.  But, while sitting in the studio at work JUST NOW I had … Continue reading Grandma’s wisdom

I think I’m broken

I think there is something wrong with me.  I'm pretty sure that I am broken or in need of some form of repair.  No, I am not a household appliance (at least I wasn't the last time I checked), and no, there is nothing physically wrong with me (aside from the extra weight I carry … Continue reading I think I’m broken
