Do You Still Wonder?

Have shootings, fake news, a fluctuating economy, medical issues, or anything else about which you fret left you feeling lost? I get it. We live in a complicated world and it’s not always easy to be positive, hopeful, and happy. But just because something isn’t easy doesn’t mean we...

Mistakes “R” Us!

My CV of Mistakes Don’t you just love to tell others all the things you’ve done wrong? Hmmmm…. Probably not. But that’s exactly what this blog is about. “CV” (if you’re unfamiliar with the term – many Americans don’t know what it is!) stands for curriculum vitae, Latin for...

Consequences – DO NOT BE AFRAID!

How are you liking this “new world” we’re experiencing? Are you happy with what some are calling a “Greater America” today? If so, you can stop reading now. Or not. A few years ago I coined a phrase. If you’ve read my work for any amount of time you’re...

Looking Forward to a Good Whine?

What do you look forward to in life? Have you noticed how you may be excited to see some friends, but dread running into other people? One reason might be the energy and attitude those people bring to the party, regardless of it being encouraging or depressing. Granted, we...

Are You Paralyzed or Progressing?

How do you feel about that question? Many people, including me, have gone through periods of feeling absolutely paralyzed due to conditions in our world that seem to be out of our control. When we allow issues to become monumental in our lives we can feel frozen, unable to...

The Blessing of Limitations

Recently I’ve written about having problems as part of experiencing our humanity. I’ve also brought up using disempowerment as a tool of empowering our lives. Both of these topics have resulted in numerous emails or comments on social media. Most have applauded my stand, but there are a couple...

We Are More Than We Know

Has anyone ever told you that you should live up to your potential? I’ve heard that, either directed toward me or in passing when one person is discussing someone else (usually their husband or child). My first thought is always, “How do you know the ultimate potential of someone...
