In late December a word started swimming through my brain. In the past, there have been Decembers here and there that I’ve chosen a word on which I planned to focus for the upcoming year. After weeks of this word making itself known in my consciousness, I decided it needed to be my word for … More Easy Like Sunday Morning
I went into 2021 with great hope and confidence – THIS was going to be THE YEAR. And for the first six months, it really was all I’d hoped it would be. By early July, things were rolling, all in the right direction. I’d been on multiple vacations, I was vaccinated, I was feeling good in my skin, … More Leave It All
Starting a new year and a new decade brings about all sorts of opportunities to reflect and/or make declarations about what comes next. 2019 was a tricky one for us, in fact the past few years have been challenging. Not bad, per se, but not a walk in the park either. When I look at … More About Last Decade
I was in a bit of a state this morning. All weekend I was in a funk, if you will, and this morning I was in an effing state. To be fair…I listened to a lot of Nas this weekend which left me feeling a tad aggressive. We had one of those weekends. The kind where we didn’t have the … More If. I. Ruled. The. World.
Yeah, yeah, I know I just said I was feeling so great and stress-free. That’s still the case but I’m having a day. I think I’m supposed to be doing more. More what, exactly? I don’t have any idea. I have fleeting thoughts, of course, grandiose ideas…but they pass and I’m still stuck feeling like … More More.
I’ve started several different posts today. One about the amazing transformation my house made over the weekend (I have before and after pictures…it’s fabulous!), one about the many people around me who seem to be embroiled in drama (I want nothin’ to do with it!), one about recognizing one of my less than flattering traits … More The. Universe. And. I. Are. Like. This.
This past weekend we hosted a birthday party for our oldest little girl. We took nine little girls to a local school of cosmetology for hair, make-up, and nails. I went to a party like this when I was little and I will never forget how amazing it felt to be treated like I’d seen … More Listen. All. Y’all. It’s. A. Sabotage.
I don’t typically take or make personal calls at work. Recently, due to an increase in staff, I was moved from an office with a door back to a cube. This is where you picture me like Dylan McKay, after he’d learned of his wife’s untimely death, in the middle of the rainy street on … More Clutch. Move.
You should know that anytime I’m able to quote Ladies Love Cool James, I will absolutely do just that. I’ve long known, if not consciously certainly subconsciously, that when I work hard and do my best good things come my way. When I complain, lament, do things half a-sed, and pout like a child, however, … More Doin’. It. And. Doin’. It. And. Doin’. It. Well.
Each year on Christmas Eve we attend the 9pm candlelit service at our church. Our church has the most amazing music. In fact, often times if I close my eyes, it’s as if I’m at the symphony instead of in church. Add candles, Handel’s Messiah, and other Christmas carols? And you have pure Christmas magic. … More Village. Of. Visionaries.
