2019 is the year of the PAUSE! This year, I'm making an effort to wait a couple of heartbeats before making a decision or replying when something rubs me the wrong way. Of course, there are moments when I totally blow my lid or lie without meaning to, but I think I'm becoming a bit… Continue reading Pausing to Help Reach My Goals
Whew! I know that my last Pause post was published just a week ago, but I wrote it nearly 3 weeks ago and that was my last opportunity to sit down in a quiet spot and put my fingers to the keyboard. And now the momentum that I felt like I had around the holidays… Continue reading That Was a Long PAUSE
2018 was my year of Abundance. I spent the year thinking of the things that I have and how it never seemed to be enough. I also spent the year parsing out what I wanted in my home and cleaning out some old things that had been weighing down my spirit. I didn't spend as… Continue reading . : P A U S E : .
Dear Friends, For my end of year post, I'm not going to reflect on my 2018 goals or set any for 2019. 2018 was a year of lessons - heartbreaking and heartwarming, all at the same time.

We're nearing the end of the year and bloggers everywhere will be reviewing how well they did with their 2018 goals. I can tell you right now - I didn't… Continue reading Clarity for November
I'm typing this blog post because I simply MUST blog. I haven't blogged since September and I haven't written anything since then either. How can this be? How can time go so quickly? I don't have any special pictures for this post. Or any special message or goal here. I just want to write for about… Continue reading I’m Alive!
The funniest thing about this post is that I started it on July 30th! And here I am, still working on a post about making time for the things that charge my batteries.
