I have seen this post all over social media lately that says, "Tell those you love that you love them. Tomorrow is not promised." It has a few different variations, but we have all seen it. A friendly reminder that life is short. Death is inevitable. Not everyone you love knows you love them. What … Continue reading What is Wrong With You?
I hear so many people joking, half joking, sometimes not joking at all that they are stupid, ugly, trash, unworthy or that they don't deserve...what? happiness? success? Love? Whatever....y'all...As one who knows that sort of thinking is just a lie of anxiety or maybe even a manipulation of evil, I am so tired of hearing … Continue reading You're What?!
I worry about big things and little things. I worry if there is enough food in the kitchen. I worry that my husband may or may not have remembered to eat. Sometimes he forgets with his PTSD brain. I worry that my kids are not safe, even my grown adult daughter who lives in Texas … Continue reading Worry is a Waste of Time, yet I still do it.
I am from the south. Some would say the deep south in the United States. I guess that is true because if you walk out my door the Gulf of Mexico is not far. We Southern folks like our holidays. I have my favorites and there are some I do not participate in, Valentine's Day, … Continue reading It's Your Choice, Always
Things happen for a reason. The reason may be the consequences for a decision you made or an action you chose. It can also be from your stagnate response. That sitting and waiting for a thing to happen. If you want something do not sit around and wait for it to magically happen on it's … Continue reading Do Not Wait
Go go go...do that thing, then the next then the next...go go go... STOP! There is no productivity in constant motion. There is loss of efficiency in multitasking. Being tired is not anyway to live. Sometimes we have to simply stop. Take a day to do nothing. You know this. Like me you probably say … Continue reading No Sin in Slowing Down
Stop lying to yourself and others. We all do it. See if this sounds familiar Person: Hi. How are you? You: Fine. Thanks. You answer "fine" automatically. It is like we are taught that is the only correct response. What if you are not "fine"? What if you are tired, sick, hungry, sad, happy,? What … Continue reading Are you really "fine"?
I am not a big fan of Valentine's Day. The entire thing feels forced. Love day should be every day. Why the world thinks people need a day to honor those we love is ridiculous. Valentine's Day, the modern version of it anyway, seems like it was made up by the greeting card writers, chocolate … Continue reading Do You Hate Valentine's Day?
Remember being a kid and wanting to know everything? If you have kids you can hear it, right? That insatiable question over and over again. "Why?" When you are the kid and you asked why it was because you really wanted to know. Depending on the response you got from the adult or person you … Continue reading Stay Curious
I was published in Data Driven Investor. Makes me giggle every time I think about it. Me? Giving financial advice? Well, yes and no. Here's the link..you decide. I don’t know how much money my husband has…and I like it that way.
