No matter how difficult these things are to retain, I…… Continue reading On Tripping Mode…

I found him on a dating site. Oddly, his profile picture was of his back. As it turns out that is his…… Continue reading Mental Health Tuesday: Cat and Mouse

In Spite of the Darkness, Goodness Still Prevails


My father in law gave me a bookmark which I have in my top left desk drawer.  Yes, I know that it should be in a book somewhere, especially because I am still a hundred pages from the end of Cloud Atlas. But I always worried that I would lose this bookmark.  It’s metal with a…… Continue reading In Spite of the Darkness, Goodness Still Prevails

Motivation Monday: When Pausing Looks A Lot Like Quitting


Happy Monday! A lot of times, we talk about quitting, failing, and giving up but what we don’t often talk about is pausing.

WHEN CLEAR VISION IS OBSCURED


Do you have a dream? Do you have a goal? Do you have vision? Without these things (providing they not un-achievable or selfishly motivated) how do we handle it when we can’t SEE the end result but glimpse only part of what is possible?

How many people paint a beautiful picture, only to have it sit forever on their living room wall or gather dust in their garage? How many writers complete a book, only to have it languish amidst MILLIONS of others…… Continue reading How Crazy Makes The World a Better Place
