When reality slaps you in the face…

When reality slaps you in the face…

I expected a lot of stressful moments with this move, but not one of them had to do with self-esteem.  And yet, here at the beginning of the move, that is exactly what has happened.  The "packing up and sending our stuff off" part has actually been relatively stress-free, even hilarious at times with craziness […]

The Stress Spiral

The Stress Spiral

 &  The past few days have thoroughly tested me, over and over again.  Not falling into old ways of thinking and old patterns has been, at times, a hell of a struggle. I had a moment the other night when it felt like everything I was trying to do for myself lately was for nothing. […]

Wednesday Wishes!

Wednesday Wishes!

Craziness.  That is the word of the times.  Moving across the country with three kids, two cats, one dog, and two cars.  Leaving one college-age kid behind.  Leaving family and friends behind.  All of this leads to crazy emotional roller coasters.   NOTE:  All pics are clickable into a new window for easier viewing!

How easy it is to fall…

How easy it is to fall…

The last few weeks have been all about change for me..  It is needed and it is time.  A big part of change, in my opinion, is the journey to it.  Open heart, open mind, and you can discover so much and learn so much.  And I have.  Some of it comes from new blogs […]

Where is the line…

Where is the line…

The Serenity Train derailed today, at least partially.  When it crashed, it took with it trust and respect, an almost tangible loss of both.  And when it crashed, it gave me anger and hurt, the kind that makes getting that train back on the tracks a true test of my desire for change.  Which I […]

Making changes

Making changes

I am last priority.  At least, that is the way it has been for a very long time.  Last priority for the people around me and eventually last priority for myself.  The first thing to go in the chaos of life is me, which I am trying to change.  There are a lot of reasons […]
