Unraveling the Knots

Unraveling the Knots

“You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run.” -From The Gambler by Kenny Rogers Yesterday, I wrote about boundaries, particularly those in friendships.  As I said yesterday, this has been something that  has been an issue for me for a long time. […]

Boundaries

Boundaries

Last Tuesday, I talked about the fabulous journal prompts offered by Dominee of Blessing Manifesting, Sacred Journey Through Journaling.  One of the things I love about them, besides the fact that they make you think (!), is that you really don't have to do them in order.  I have been doing them totally out of order, […]

And so the week ends…

And so the week ends…

It's been an enlightening week, full of ups and downs.  It started out with downward spiral Monday afteroon and I spent the evening feeling completely overwhelmed and frustrated.  It just seemed that, no matter how much I may try to pull myself up, there is always something right there to pull me down.  But giving in […]


A Balancing Act

A Balancing Act

I discovered a new blog today, Effervescense by Kylie.  Kind of ironic, considering the things I have been thinking about lately, that I discovered her blog on the day she posts about change.  It's all about how you don't have to be anyone or anything other than who or what you are in order to do […]

Gifts & Wishes

Today has been one of those days when it would have been all too easy to give in to the blahs and ignore my blog and my goals for the day.  I am thoroughly exhausted and thinking in a straight line is almost an impossible feat!  But since my end goal is for positive change, […]

Letting it go…

Letting it go…

There is a website out there, Blessing Manifesting, that I love.  Dominee is incredibly inspiring and insightful and she speaks in a way that really makes me think.  Today she wrote a post, Be Honest With You, that was about being honest with yourself about your own feelings.  All the time, people ask "how are […]

The challenge of questing…

The challenge of questing…

There are days when my quest to destress my life and live with more positivity is sorely challenged.  Today is one of those days.  I tend to get a major case of ass when I see certain things, namely instances of hypocrisy, unfair judgement calls, and just plain meanness.  It is a hard habit to […]

Journeying…

Journeying…

Although I don't think she intended it to be this way, my friend Renee has become my spiritual guru/life inspiration.  She is on her own spiritual/life journey at the moment and she is so open and sharing with it that it is inspiring.  I have been in a rut for so long, long enough that […]

Changes are afoot!

Changes are afoot!

We are finally moving, something I was beginning to think would never happen.  We have a pack out date with transportation on August 23rd and pick up on the 24th.  We are rolling out for our cross-country road trip on the 29th.  We have been stationed here for 7+ years, since May of 2005.  But […]
