Every Day is Independence Day

Let’s talk about – INDEPENDENCE.

An independent person has full autonomy or control over one’s life.

Our independence can be taken away in all kinds of ways, such as government mandates, mental health interventions (#freebritney), or as punishment for committing crimes.

Outdated Dreams and Evolving Desires

Saying goodbye to my dog, Scout, has me contemplating what the next 17 years looks like, and my eyes were suddenly opened to my environment.

The other day I looked at my vision board and realized it has become outdated.

While some of my goals have manifested, other goals are no longer important...

Time is the Coin of Life

“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.”   - Carl Sandburg

Time is top of mind for me because two life events converged last week.  I celebrated...

My Answer is NO

The other night I received a text from my friend who prints mugs for me.

He was grappling with a frustrating situation concerning his mother’s friend.  This friend wanted to borrow his spare car and she would not let up on her requests.  He made one excuse after another as to why...

Is Your Pot Too Small?

My father-in-law gave us a jade plant many years ago.  We planted it in a red ceramic pot and placed it in our bathroom.

For years, this jade plant grew at a minimal pace.  It wasn’t a very pretty plant, sporting thin branches and sparse green leaves.  I don’t have much...

Let's Ride the Seesaw

I remember, as a little girl, my mom would walk us up the street to a park that was in the center of our little town.  It had swings and a steel slide that would burn our skin as we slid down.

My favorite was the seesaw. 

The trick of the seesaw was that each person had to scoot forward...

It Hurts So Good

After over a year, I am finally back at the gym.

It hurts so good.

Sitting on the toilet was a bit of a challenge last week, but my thigh muscles have recovered.

Muscles have memory.  Despite being neglected, my body is beginning to remember how it felt to be challenged.  I took the...

I'll Do Me, You Do You

I spent last week with my family in Missouri.  We hadn’t seen each other, face to face, in 20 months.  Now that we are all fully vaccinated, I felt comfortable traveling.

We drove from New York to Missouri and traveled through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois.  I was...

Let's Change the Rules of the Race

What do you see when you look at this cartoon?

What emotions do you feel?  What phrases come to mind?

How would you describe what’s going on?

What Is Your Secret Desire?

What’s your secret desire?

What’s the one thing you wish for, the tiny spark hovering in the back of your mind? What do you dream about in the dark quiet, when everything else falls away and you are left with only your thoughts?

What would happen if you let that secret desire out of...

What You Have in Common with the Covid-19 Vaccine Creator

I received my second Moderna Covid-19 vaccine shot on Monday.

They warned me that I would experience more side effects this time around.  I had a headache for 36 hours after the first shot, so I was braced for impact.

Well, I didn’t have a headache, but I was pooped yesterday.  I...

The ONE Phrase that Triggers Me to Turn and Run

This year marks 26 years since I graduated from college.

I entered freshman year as a teaching candidate, on track to teach elementary school.  Seven of eight roommates were also slated to enter the teaching track.  This was purely a coincidence, not a housing assignment.  It...
