Bring on the Dragons

So I have read a great book by Brant Hansen called Unoffendable and I think it is a book everyone should read. It's all about how life can get better by making one simple, extremely difficult change. Choosing to give up anger. I have to admit that I cannot think of a single good thing…

Thank You Mom and Dad

I am very blessed to have awesome parents. That doesn't mean that I was always an awesome daughter though. They put up with a lot from me. They also gave great advice that I promptly ignored. I should have listened to them and for that I am sorry. They gave me advice like eat more…

Crazy Bravery

One thing I have noticed about kids is they are not afraid of anything. I have seen them hanging off tree limbs, running up to stray cats and dogs, talking to strangers, climbing on stair railings, eating strange berries (I did stop that one), playing in the street, and doing many other things that would…

Compassion is Action

We are living in the Information Age. The average person has more connectivity and more access to more information now than at any point in history. With the tap of a few buttons we can have diagrams, studies, opinions, news reports, and entertainment in an instant. So are we just ingesting the information we have…

The Disney Lady I Most Admire

Disney has had some great women in its movies over the years. From courageous Mulan to hardworking Tiana to quick-witted Moana the Disney females are becoming more independent and sure of themselves. But there is one Disney lady that is left out in most conversations. She isn't a princess and she doesn't have the fancy…

One Fleeting Moment

Doesn't it amaze you that each and every person you meet all have unique, separate lives that you know almost nothing about? The person you pass in traffic is going to the job interview that they have been praying to get for months. That girl behind you in line is on her way to get…

One of My Favorite Places

So today I had a whole post planned out. Then I read that Betsy DeVos was just confirmed as Education Secretary. And again we are divided with part of the country condemning the announcement and part of the country celebrating it. I am not going to talk about the politics or speculation surrounding this appointment.…

A Really Truly Good Friend

Defeated. That's how I was feeling yesterday. Those of you that follow this blog know that I try to write at least a post a day, and I did not write at all yesterday. I'd lost my motivation and desire to write. I know, I know, the girl who writes about finding how to motivate…

Time for a Time Out

Oh how I miss Kindergarten! Sharing and Crayons and Recess and Nap Time! Naps should be allowed at work! I am serious on that. Someone start a petition. Petitions remind me of politics and while I am not going to comment on who I believe is right or wrong on that I will say this:…
