Think Like a Weed.

plantcrackcement

Got weeds? Me too. No matter how many I pull out, a few days later…there they are again. Weeds even find a way to grow out of cracks in the concrete, seams in the street that appear to be completely filled with tar. They pop out of gigantic red rock mountains in Colorado. Weeds (and […]

Trusting what THEY say?

This afternoon, my husband and I were planning to go for a long walk.It had been a gorgeous, crispy day and the countryside around our house was creating an urgent invitation not to miss its rolling meadows and lakes, shimmering in the afternoon sun. But any one who lives in Texas can attest to how […]

What time is it?

If you are cruising into your forties, or fifties, or sixties or seventies, or beyond… doncha think it’s time? If you have the URGE to see yourself be yourself again, to believe in yourself again, to SEE YOURSELF as WHOLE, and TALENTED, and POSSIBLE…..here’s a little nudge to tuck away. Maybe this could be suitable […]

Look Out World, Here I Come. Or Maybe Not.

Here we go again. All the talk of new year’s resolutions. Fact is, most people who do RESOLVE at the first of the year have DISSOLVED by mid-February. I believe WE (the universal WE) have a core issue driving all those resolutions….one that’s not talked about very much…and certainly not often understood as the linchpin […]

Christmas Present.

In my book, “Christmas” is one of those hot button words. It conjures up all kinds of swirling bits. Memories, happy and sad, vividly etched for a lifetime. Traditions loved and those we vow to never do again. Foods and smells from the kitchen that remind our noses we are now in FA LA LA […]

Becoming more YES—ISH

yes

I have fallen in love with the idea of ISH. You know ISH. It means “sort of”. We will see you around 5:00 – ISH. Saying that on the front end of an invitation, no one will expect you to be on time. “5:00 sharp” is off the table completely. You won’t have to walk […]

SUPER MOON..Super Reminder

Did you see the moon last night? SO HUGE. SO BRIGHT. It won’t be back to see us like that again until 2034! So, it got me to thinking. My brain seems to take some unusual thought walks. Tonight walked right into an old hymn I’ve loved all my life: HE’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD […]

Oh Gosh. It’s Here.

When I first starting writing this blog in 2009, I went to a class about the “right way” to write a blog. They spent the majority of the time telling us how to “monetize” our posts….getting a massive number of followers which would attract the Googles of the world, which would attract the advertisers of […]

Finding Our Rock Solid Inner Home.

handsbeachsun

Much of my life, I have known MY purpose was to assist/advocate for others in finding THEIRS. It’s always been so clear to me that all of us need a rock, solid center from which to operate. Something in us needs to be able to say…”THIS IS ME“…and mean it. Not in that defiant “flip-you-off” […]

Words I wish were mine. I share with you.

My favorite word is….YES. I ask myself…“How do I get to ‘YES’?….all the time. If it’s something I really, really want to know, or do, or be, then I ask, “How do I get to “Deep Yes”? When I get quiet and remind myself that faith is the absence of worry, then all kinds of […]
