Fair to Middling

I’m doing alright. How about you? Sometimes you just have to look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself, “How you doing?”

You’re Not Everything

You can’t be everything to everyone in your life. No matter how hard you try you can’t please everyone. It’s not possible. You can say yes. You can do and do and still...it will not please everyone. Stop trying. It is okay to say No. You are not everything, stop trying to be. Those special… Continue reading You’re Not Everything

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?!

No Sin in Slowing Down

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
