Five for Peace

If you had the chance to sit back and observe the world from an aerial view, you’d probably see the hustle and bustle this month enhanced by 500%. What do I mean by that? Well, if you consider your own world, you probably feel the pressure of adding tasks to your already busy situation and having thoughts of how am I going to get this all done? But, some...

I Wish You a Life You’re Crazy About

Are you crazy about life or does life make you crazy? My life seems crazy right now, but I am crazy about my life. Whether you work 1 job, 2 jobs, 3 jobs, for someone else, for yourself, are a stay at home mom or volunteer your time for the good of others, there is no denying that this time of year makes an already crazy busy life (even one your crazy abou...

My Heart is Full of Gratitude & Happiness

Have you ever gone through something in life and wondered why you are going through it or feel majorly inconvenienced? Well, when I learned about Hurricane Irma’s possible arrival to the whole state of Florida, zoning in on the east coast, that is exactly how I felt. I thought in my mind, “Seriously? We just went through this crap last year w...

Choose the hard that is going to make you happy!

I am half way through the book “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay. I just learned a few days ago that she passed away on August 30, I believe at the age of 90. This is the first book I have read of hers and it is very thought provoking and I highly recommend it. I am sure this won’t be the last book I read of hers. One thing that is constant beside...

Keep Moving. Stay Steady.

Sometimes I feel like all I do is work my ass off while others all around me are enjoying life and having fun. There are times I start to have a pity party like why not me? Why do some people seem to have it so easy? What did they do differently? What did I do wrong? Well, I am sure some married into it, some inherited it, and some just got lucky, but the...

Stay the Course and Never Give Up

This blog may go in various directions and seem like a ramble, but I feel like I walk around with all these thoughts I want to get onto paper and often with life's busy schedule I don't have the chance. As I reflect on just the last year, I am amazed on how I have grown as a person and how I continue to grow. Life has its challenges and sometimes I feel I ...

Don't Wait. Happiness is Waiting for You!

We all hear the saying "life is Short." What does that mean to you? For me as I get older it becomes a bigger reality. It's like I can hear the clock ticking, each day seems shorter, the weeks fly by as do the months and I say to myself "where has the time gone?" It is pretty scary actually and then I realize I only have 8 years until I turn 60 a...

They Fell Into My Lap

Have the Time of Your Life

One thing that never stops is time. There have been "times" when I wish I could slow it down (or speed it up) or freeze it, but you can't. No matter what, the clock is going to tick, tomorrow is going to come and go and even if we want to, we can't turn back the clock. That is not a bad thing though. It means when you are having a bad day, it will pass; or...

There's always, always something to be thankful for.

I can't believe Thanksgiving is this week! Holy cow, how'd that happen? Wasn't I just handing out candy? I love this time of year! Yes, there is always something to be thankful for, but this time of year has a way of slowing me down a bit and reflecting on all that I do have. It also brings family and friends together and people tend to start clocking out...

One Drop at a Time

It's Halloween! Happy Halloween! I love Halloween and always enjoy putting on a mask and giving out candy to all the kids in the neighborhood. However, I feel like I am not ready for Halloween this year. At the beginning of this month we had to deal with Hurricane Matthew....well, needless to say, that took 2 weeks out of our lives. Everything...

Raindrops are Falling

It’s been raining a lot lately…on and off and the raindrops have made me think a lot about life. I watch as they hit the window, noticing how unique each one is from the other. Their visit seems to be short as they dissipate to another location or dissolve from the afternoon sun peeking out from behind the clouds. For whatever reason, they remind me of h...

What's Your Simple Something?

I woke up this morning to learn about it being National Wine Day, which then created a bunch of thoughts spiraling in my mind about what life would be like without certain joys, wine being one of them. Which got me to thinking about other things that would make life suck without.......which got me talking out loud to others at work about how it is N...
