When you just smile

I realized something recently. I don't struggle with writers block. Don't worry. I'm not saying that I am one of those amazing writers that always has something to write about. That's a big fat nope! As a matter of fact, it seems that lately I have been silent more than I've been writing. With that … Continue reading When you just smile

Always searching for Orion

I was driving to work tonight and looked a bit like a drunk driver.  The sky was wonderfully clear and dark which made the stars quite visible.  I looked at the sky on the driver's side of my car and lo-and-behold, Orion was following me to work.  Orion is my favorite constellation.  Not because he's … Continue reading Always searching for Orion

When journaling won’t cut it

So, I went out and bought a new notebook today. Now allow me to say that, by buying a new notebook, I am truly defining the insanity that is my life. Here is why. Whenever I get "down in the dumps," I go out and buy a new notebook. My thought is that I'll get … Continue reading When journaling won’t cut it

“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. Worthless. Won’t amount to anything.

Writing Prompts Change the World

Several months ago I purchased 2 decks of cards from Best Self.  I bought the Wordsmith deck and the Edison deck.  The Wordsmith deck is filled with writing prompts  from varying subjects, all designed to inspire you so that you can focus on your writing and not on trying to come up with something to … Continue reading Writing Prompts Change the World

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
