Sunshine after the Storm

Hurricanes are a fact of life in Florida. I’m used to it. So many humans ask me, “Why live there?” I live here because it’s home and the storms are not an every day occurrence. Storms remind us that rough times come but they also move on leaving the sunshine that follows. Wait for the … Continue reading Sunshine after the Storm

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.

Focusing takes Practice

Being present is difficult in today’s distracting environment. Try this the next time you sit down for a meal, before you take that first bite. Turn off all screens. Place your phone in another room. Under your pillow is a good spot. Set the table. If your serve from the kitchen, set your place at … Continue reading Focusing takes Practice

Animals

Not everyone likes animals. I wonder if those people think animals are just food or are random parts of nature they can ignore? Personally I like animals. Dogs, cats, giraffes, owls and elephants I love. I have always had a cat or two and a dog or three. Right now I don’t have any animals. … Continue reading Animals

It’s a Concern

Humans don’t realize how fragile their health can become over time and as we age. It’s concerning when the doctor says “I have your test results.” For a brief second my heart flutters and my stomach leaps. All we can do is what is in our reach to do. Eat better. Move your body. Get … Continue reading It’s a Concern

Slow Soft Quiet

Slow, soft quiet. Those are my favorite humans. They move with purpose, they step lightly around other people's hearts and they speak quietly. I can do without fast and loud humans who talk and move like the world is ending. Brash and chaotic. No thank you. Surround yourself with the humans you like best.

It is Today

If you only do one productive thing today let it be this... Today, let go of things that no longer serve the good for you. If the thing no longer fits your dream, your happiness or your life goal, let go of it. This includes people, jobs, things in your home, your home, any thing … Continue reading It is Today

Porn

Now that I have your attention... Shock words like "porn", "sex", "free", "money", "racism", and others make humans do a double take when the word is written or spoken. If a proclaimed Christian says a shock word like "porn" people get confused. Humans have preconceived ideas in their head about how religious people should speak … Continue reading Porn

As I Lay Sleeping…

As you read this I am sleeping. I am getting my hand fixed. It's a common thing. People like me who work with their hands wear them out. I have put this off a bit longer than I should have, but that's normal for me. I have put my health on the bottom of my … Continue reading As I Lay Sleeping…

Some People are Just Mean

I am a little late on the post today because family always comes first. We all had a case of cabin fever, so we donned masks and went to a bookstore. Here we are my husband, me and five of our children walking into the store masks on, chatting and laughing. There were very few … Continue reading Some People are Just Mean
