Are You Happy?

I was visiting with a friend the other day who was expressing some concern about her not very motivated kid. She said, “I can’t tell if he’s happy or not.” It got me to thinking about what it means to be happy and whether we have the courage to examine our own happiness. I know,... Continue Reading →

As if

"What's one thing you would do if you knew you couldn't fail?" I saw this question posted on another website this week, and it's been gnawing at me. I had an online conversation with a friend about it today, and she mentioned often feeling paralyzed by fear but didn't think it was about failing. So,... Continue Reading →

To all the Single Ladies

Valentine's Day. It's the most dreaded day for so many singles. I can remember in grade school hating to walk by the school office on Valentine's Day, knowing that many of my friends would have balloons and stuffed animals, flowers and candy waiting on them, expressions of adoration from their beloveds. *Sigh.* I was never...

confession…

They say confession is good for the soul. I’m not sure who “they” are, but my soul needs some good and I need to confess a few things. First of all, I’m terrible at blogging. I had all these big ideas about tapping into my midlife awakening and my creative celebration of my 40th year,... Continue Reading →

I've savored every moment of it, feeling nothing but gratitude and oh so much joy. And, so begins my year... Continue Reading →

countdown’s on…

So, the big day is fast approaching - the day I for so long dreaded and now can’t wait to celebrate - my 40th birthday. It’s AMAZING what a shift in perspective can do for one’s outlook on life. I mentioned in my last post my holiday flu epiphany. I confess that when I first... Continue Reading →

beyond the horizon

Life is so interesting. Early on we really can set ourselves up for success by embracing our inner adventurer or for a lifetime of 'not quite there yet' by attempting to follow a prescribed notion of what life "should" look like. I'm about to turn 40. It's a number I've been dreading for a while... Continue Reading →

DVR’d life

I admit, I’m a bit of a TV junkie. I can’t say I’m proud of this fact, but I definitely have some shows that it absolutely pains me to miss. Because of this slight obsession, I broke down and got a DVR. Some of my favorites this season have an element of suspense to them... Continue Reading →
