Why Not Trick or Treat?

I was asked why do I hate Halloween. My first thought was hate is too strong a word. I do not hate Halloween. I enjoy the cute children in costume knocking at my door. Their happiness shines through innocently doing what the adults in their lives expect them to do. I don’t hate the modernContinue reading “Why Not Trick or Treat?”

Dear Lord…make it stop.

Me: Oh God! What is wrong with people? What is happening to my children? This world is full of people who have twisted reality so much that the truth is hidden. What seems harmless is damaging the thought process of our children. Truth has been watered down so much that lies have taken control. TheContinue reading “Dear Lord…make it stop.”

Goals Not Resolutions

I dislike New Year’s resolutions. How many times have you made a resolution that ended in a fiery disaster? It is not your fault. Resolutions are a form of “cultural procrastination,” according to Timothy Pychyl a professor of psychology at Carleton University in Canada. Humans assume willpower is a character trait that you’re either bornContinue reading “Goals Not Resolutions”

Your Stomach Rules

Yes your heart and mind are the primary driving forces in your life. It’s a balance between logic, intuition, faith, love and trust. You make decisions on the information from the mind and heart in a dance of thoughts and ideas. You might think that is how you get through life and it is forContinue reading “Your Stomach Rules”

Sometimes I Miss You

Dear Friend No More, Sometimes I miss your face. I miss the history we share, the past that was just us. I miss the fun times with our children when people thought we were all one family. I miss the late night talks over wine and cheesecake. I miss the all day old movie marathonsContinue reading “Sometimes I Miss You”

Tired…so Tired

I am so tired. I am tired of grand events, parties, drinking Mojito’s on the beach, shopping for the perfect pair of shoes, sitting in the cafe’ writing the next big thing, watching the sunset over Key West with my girls and…oh wait that is not my life. I go to work every day andContinue reading “Tired…so Tired”

It Gets Easier, Right? Wrong.

Hey God, this thing…this life lesson thing. I am trying really. I am trying to do that forgiveness thing too. I am not doing a good job of it at all. I get mad still…ok, I get angry. It is not fair. It is not fair that those who did mean and bad things toContinue reading “It Gets Easier, Right? Wrong.”

Hey you…

Yes you, sitting there scrolling and scrolling down whatever social media is your time killer of choice. What are you doing with your time? Where is your life headed? Do you want to sit there day after day, hour after hour, looking at memes, reading whiny posts from your depressed friends who are sitting thereContinue reading “Hey you…”

Do Not Allow Nostalgia To Control Your Happiness at Home

It’s not your grandmother’s house anymore. When my husband asked me to marry him, my answer was not a simple yes or no. It was, “Yes, if you promise not to make me a housewife.” I was not joking. I am not a housewife. I hate when society tells me I have to do certainContinue reading “Do Not Allow Nostalgia To Control Your Happiness at Home”
