Not My HIStory

0

Inspired by our trip to Memphis and a visit to the National Civil Rights Museum Not My HIStory by Suhaiba Neill I stood where Martin stood And tried to imagine Having the strength To peacefully lead A divided nation To the promise land It took my breath away I sat where Rosa sat And tried to imagine Being so tired […]

Welcoming A New Year

0

This came to me this morning and seemed like the perfect reminder as I start a new year. Especially when everything that I wanted to come to pass last year, didn’t happen the way I had hoped. So here’s to a New Year ahead, and letting go of any notion of what I think it should hold or how I […]

She Knows Me Too Well

0

Last week as I was gathering my things to head out the door when my daughter turned to me and said “Why aren’t you wearing your leopard print shoes?” I had on a white linen sleeveless shirt and magenta capri pants, which I do usually pair with my leopard sandals to mix things up a bit. In the madness that has […]

To Share Or Not To Share

0

As a writer, believe it or not, more often than not, I’m reluctant to share my words. This is mostly out of fear that they’re not quite good enough, or not quite ready for anyone else’s eyes. Ask almost any writer you know and I’ll bet they’ll tell you that most of what they put out into the world rarely […]

No Changing The Station

0

My daughter will turn 11 in a few months, which means I lost control of the radio in my car about a decade ago. First it was the Baby Einstein cds, then we moved on to the Backyardigans, and from there to Hannah Montana (that was a painful period). Next came Justin Beiber, which finally (and thankfully)  lead us into […]

This one is in honor of National Poetry Month, but mostly because I need to remind myself to just breathe. Be still Really still, and fully Engaged in this moment As you inhale, be Thankful for each breathe His greatest gift of all, and Exhale knowing that the cycle will begin again With every breath we have the opportunity To be […]

As Another Birthday Approaches

0

I’ve been feeling a little melancholy lately, and was having a hard time figuring out why until it finally hit me – my birthday is quickly approaching. And then my sad brain took it one step further (because that’s what your brain does when you’re sad, drags you down a bit deeper). I realized that I have been single for […]

My 3 Favorite Features

0

I’m going to start this post with an apology because I’m going to make a generalization about most women. I’d bet that if you asked almost any woman what three features she disliked about her body the most, she’d be able to rattle them off with out batting an eyelash. If, however, you asked the same woman to name her […]

33 Days – 3 Take Aways

0

While I prefer to read non-fiction during the day when my brain can still absorb new information (nighttime reading for me is to detach and unwind), after hearing Panache Desai speak at a Random House Open House event, I decided to give his book Discovering Your Soul Signature: A 33 Day Path To Purpose, Passion & Joy a shot. I […]
