Feeling Comfortable in Your Own Skin

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 13:10:28 +0000

I could never have imagined the domino effect put into motion after confronting the way I see, think, and feel about myself. What began as an endeavor to cultivate a healthier sense of self while finding the inner confidence to establish personal boundaries soon blossomed into something that has, actually, brought me full circle … […]

How Do You Rate On Your Personal Value Scale?

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:42:21 +0000

It was an epiphany – of sorts. I mean, it wasn’t that I had a sudden, intuitive insight about something but, rather, it’s been rolling around in my head for awhile. However, I like that word so, what can I say, it was an opportunity to use it. I guess it all came together when […]

Do You Hear Yourself Saying Yes While Your Mind Says NO?

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 03:46:06 +0000

It’s a small word. One consonant, one vowel, and one syllable. And while I may have said it often as a toddler it definitely became more and more challenging to say as an adult – in fact, it seems to be a difficult word for most to say. You know the word … come on, […]

Do You Own Each Day Or Does It Own You?

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 03:09:39 +0000

It happens every morning. As I look toward the window for any hint of the weather outside, I am thinking how glad I am to have another day. A fresh new day. Yesterdays angst, mess-ups, lost moments, etc. can be, and should be, left in yesterday. The day is stretched out in front of me […]

Do You Go To The Hardware Store For Lemonade?

Thu, 01 Jan 2015 04:54:36 +0000

At first I wasn’t sure if I had heard my friend clearly. Or correctly. After all, our conversation had covered a lot of ground – childhood, families, DIY projects, friendships, disappointments, etc. It was my friends reply to something I had said about a disappointment that made me question my hearing. PH had looked at […]

Another Take on the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 21:20:50 +0000

Who Knew dousing someone with a bucket of ice water could net so much attention. Not to mention money. I have to be honest and admit to being somewhat out of the whole Ice Bucket loop. I’ve read just enough to know what was happening with the challenge. Well, sorta. Does anyone really know what […]

What Came First – Illness or Personal Growth?

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 02:28:36 +0000

Whenever reflecting on how much I have changed over the years, I know I can’t ignore how illness has influenced many of those changes. And I do think the operative word is influenced. Does it really matter the role or bearing illness has had on the changes in myself, as well as in my life? […]

What It’s Like To Have A Trach Change?

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 18:14:56 +0000

It’s that time again. Whenever I think about it my heart beat quickens and my stomach churns – I push it out of my mind and all is well … until, aargh! I remember it’s that time again.   It’s time to have my trach changed! Around and round my thoughts, and stomach, will go […]

Sticks and Stones May Break Bones But Words Hurt

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 23:59:50 +0000

“Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me.” I remember the first time I ever heard that rhyme. I had been telling mom about a kid that called me names. It was the first day of high school. Okay, okay, I was just seeing if you were really reading or […]

The Last Thing My Mother Ever Gave Me

Wed, 28 May 2014 18:47:09 +0000

Everything about the conversation was out of the ordinary for mom. Talking about feelings, past regrets, mistakes … these things didn’t come easy for her. And the times she did reveal anything of herself, while a surprise, it was not an invitation to ask questions or probe.   It also wasn’t the time to think […]
