You are allowed to take up space.

You and the things that make you happy are allowed to take up space. It is your responsibility to manage that space so that it does not impede on the space of your fellow humans, especially the humans you love. The mental, emotional, and physical space you need to survive are all on you and … Continue reading You are allowed to take up space.

It’s about Moderation

We could all do with a reminder that it is not eating that is a sin, but gluttony. Not one beer but many that make you drunk. It’s not saving as much money as you can but greed that is dangerous. Moderation in all things, humans. Make it your life rule.

Get … Continue reading It’s a Concern

Don’t wait for someone to open it for you. Here’s the other thing about doors. If it’s locked look for a key. If … Continue reading Open the Door

Labor and Rest

Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 Your day off may involve a bbq, friends over for a party or one last day of vacation.

Be Seen and Not Heard

I was told as a child to be seen and not heard. Not because I was a girl, but rather because I was a child. I failed a lot. When I did succeed, I discovered a secret. By being quiet you notice what other humans often do not see when their mouth is running off … Continue reading Be Seen and Not Heard
