The Best Kind of Busy

1 April 2017

One realization I have had in looking over how I live my life is that it is important for me that my formula is fluid- but yet not so fluid that I fall off track and land myself in a rut that I can’t seem to break out of.

Stuck In A Rut

20 March 2017

So anyway, while I have been moping around in a haze of germs feeling sorry for myself, I started thinking about some of the decisions I make for my life every day. I have spent an inordinate amount of time on the couch due to illness – and I have basic cable… so that leaves lots of time to think about my life in general. I have discovered that I’m exceptional at thinking about doing things, but terrible at actually doing them.

It’s 11 O’clock. Do You Know Where Your Children Are?

17 March 2017

If you’re a Gen Xer or Baby Boomer, you remember this familiar query from late-night Eyewitness Newscast intros. While the sentiment is not completely antiquated, often times we know where our children are these days. They’re in their rooms, of course. But the bigger issue today is knowing where they are online.

Admitting I Don't Have a Clue When It Comes to Parenting (and hoping the kids don't find out!)

10 March 2017

Honestly, these changes in him scare the crap out of me! I totally rode the tide of easy parentdom the entire time between the ages of 6 and 12 and enjoyed as he gained independence and eventually didn’t need to yell “mom!” a million times a day. I’m not sure I’m ready to wade into these murky tweenage parenting waters – and yet, here I am.

Changing Your Spots

9 March 2017

I was definitely a self-professed, Type-A personality…or at least I proudly wore the badge. Everything had it’s time, place and order. I felt that things didn’t get done unless I had a hand in it and then resented those around me when I felt I was left to do all the work.

They'll Come Back

4 March 2017

I realized that all the while I thought I was just being a supportive fan, I’ve actually been practicing some of my core life values — being positive instead of negative... looking at the glass as half-full rather than half-empty... not dwelling on past disappointments but looking towards future possibilities... supporting those I love through good times and bad...

Stop Pretending

20 February 2017

I shared with you that we were considering selling our home of 38 years and embarking on a new adventure by moving to a new community. I told you I was excited and scared. Now a year later I will share with you that I was pretending. I was just plain scared and sad.

Adulting Is Hard

17 February 2017

Sometimes I wonder why we were in such a hurry to grow up. Adulting is an education that is free, but the hardest course to navigate at times in my opinion. Don't you agree?

Feel As If

9 February 2017

Needless to say, as I’ve listened to Jess’ recent podcasts on the law of attraction, and her consideration of how to be in alignment as a means of creating a life she loves living, she’s helped me to understand that perhaps the underlying concept where focus should be placed is not to just simply act as if, but to also feel as if.
