Doing The Thing

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face…. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”  Eleanor Roosevelt

I have stared at the above quote for the past 5 days. Eleanor Roosevelt was wise, strong, and incredibly bold. Inspiration was birthed out of every word she spoke back in her day. She was fiercely independent and lived out the advice she gave. Whenever I hear or read one of her quotes, I am instantly inspired to leap into action. Continue reading

What Ya See Is What Ya Get

I hate false advertising.

Something is branded as being the best. When you view the advertisement you just can’t believe it looks that good. You simply must have it. Whatever it is. You go to make your big purchase…giddy with excitement….only to have your dreams dashed as you glance at what you just wasted good money on. Continue reading

Shine Brighter

It is that time of year when I hate being on social media, turning on my TV, and avoid any kind of news…….

Election Time.

As a youngster I could hardly wait until I was 18 and old enough to vote. I love that I live in a country where my opinion matters, and I get a say in who runs my government. I love talking policy, track records, and party agendas.

Go ahead you can say it…. I am a nerd. Continue reading

Exhausting All Possibilities

I am the Queen of Unfinished business.  If you take a look in my guest room you will find half done knitting projects. Three scrapbooks I have attempted to put together, and an array of other “projects and hobbies” I told myself I would finish.

It’s not that I mean to bail…I just get tired, frustrated, bored, and well…..let’s face it…I’m lazy.

My mother has been trying to teach me to knit for 20 something years. It has been the source of some of our greatest fights and shouting matches. She would get me going on a couple of rows and then it happened…..the two year old fit and the same excuse……. Continue reading

Be Amazing…..Not Normal

I have a Dilemma.

There… I have said it.  It is out in the open.  I have absolutely no shame in making the above statement. My body screams, “Girl…Get fit!” But my stomach responds… “Need Tacos…STAT!” It is a constant struggle, and let me be honest…The tacos usually win.  Continue reading

Be Willing

It amazes me how I never stop learning. When I was younger I thought by the time I was at least 40 years old, I would have this thing called life figured out. Now at the ripe ole age of 41, I have found, I am still a mere pupil.

I would love to tell you that I am a Generous person, who gives of herself freely….but that would be a falsehood.

I am terribly selfish, greedy, and lazy. All too often I concern myself with foolish things instead of seeking how I can give to others. Now, I am not saying I am not filled with compassion, because I am, but sometimes I am too lazy or self absorbed to act on those feelings of compassion. Continue reading

Let The Sun Shine….AGAIN!

Well, I was nominated once again for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Thank you so much BEXoxox Blog for the shout out and nomination! A while back I said I wasn’t going to participate in any more of these awards, but you know what????? Someone took the time to read something I wrote and they liked it! They thought enough of my words to  recognize me and give me a shout out, so I in turn accept the nomination and proudly display for all to see.  🙂 Now, awards aren’t for everyone, so if you don’t accept…hey that’s fine too.  🙂 Continue reading
