They say the journey starts with the first steps. This blog isn’t my first step. I am not sure I’ve taken my first step yet. I’m a thinker. If thinking about getting my life on track would have made me mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy and thin, I’d be Twiggy. (okay, I meant Twiggy from […]


I’ve always been fairly discerning about the character of the people I meet. Some would call this intuition; others would call it the Holy Spirit leading. Short sidebar: who is to say that intuition isn’t how God chooses to allow his guidance to work. I know many of you reading this might not believe there […]


The next few days are being spent in finalizing my moving out of my house. It’s not sold. My mom has been doing some research on what she feels could be my next direction I take with it. I’ll be able to have a more definitive direction after tomorrow. I really liked that house, yet […]


Sleepless in…

…well not Seattle. I did really enjoy that movie though. No, I’m sleepless in Kansas. I have some big decisions to make in the next few days. I’m tired and need some rest, but when a few things are settled in the next week maybe my mind will stop dwelling on them and move on […]

Where do you start, when you don’t know where to start? I don’t know where to start these days. I have read that people wanting to write, even with writer’s block, need to write something, anything. I’m not sure writer’s block is my issue at the moment. Do I have ideas to share? Yeah, I […]


Great blog title right? I am reevaluating everything about my blog right now as I prepare to launch a series soon. Using @problogger ‘s 31 Days to a Better Blog as a re-starting point, I looked at the elevator pitch I wrote last year. It was woefully pathetic. My son even laughed at it when […]


Yesterday was an off day for me. I’d fallen asleep in the most uncomfortable recliner, waking up at 6:30 am. My decision was to make my upstairs and either crawl in my bed, or get a start to my day. Sometimes, if I look at my email, Twitter, and Facebook I can get the blood […]


Ugh, I am such a newbie at this blogging stuff. It’s not as simple as writing down your thoughts and plopping them on the interwebs.  (Interwebs is what a group of friends call the Internet.) …wait. It can be that simple. It’s a matter of choosing what you want your blog to be. Hmmm. I’ve […]


  I have had so many changes in my life in the past few months it’s been difficult to manage all of them.  I remembered a stress scale listing life events and I knew many of my own changes in the past six months were on that list. I finally looked up the scale this […]
