Catching up…

Catching up…

Time flies… It's been more than a month since I last blogged.  I had been good about blogging regularly, but I needed to take a bit of a step back, I guess.  I have been taking a bit of a social media hiatus, light on the blogging, light on the Facebook.  I have been kind […]

Wishes in the wind

Wishes in the wind

Today's wish is about change.  There are a lot of changes that I wish for, big and small.  Change can be hard.  It can be frustrating.  It takes an open mind and a willingness to listen and learn.  But without change we become stagnant on every level. What change do I most wish for today? I'm tired […]

Faeries in my future

Faeries in my future

Today is a big day in my world.  It is registration day for next semester and, of course, it is Election Day.  I have registered for 4 classes, although I may need to add another.  Then there is the question of financial aid.  Will I still be eligible if I find out that I need […]

Lessons Learned

Note:  I feel it necessary to remind readers of my disclaimer. Judge not lest ye be judged… This is such a universal rule to live by, yet it is one that is seemingly impossible to abide by all the time.  We all judge, on some level, whether or not we admit it to ourselves.  Sometimes […]

Wednesday Wishes

Wednesday Wishes

Today's wish is about saying "yes".  This sounds so very simple, the simple act of saying or thinking "yes," of giving yourself permission to do whatever it is that you need to do.  But there is nothing simple about it, at least not yet and not for me.  Why is it so hard?  There are […]
