It’s difficult to give myself the care and attention that I need so desperately. In years past, I did everything for everyone else and unintentionally ignored myself. I was so lost in this way of life that I didn’t even realize that I was evaporating away from ME.
THE realization of my personal neglect happened a few years ago and I knew my own essence had to change. Continue reading →
She was that girl. She said yes before being asked to help, stayed up late completing projects for friends, church, or the latest group she’d joined. They all had deep meaning to her.

I think there is a distinct difference between joy and happiness. Happiness is dependent on what’s going on in your life. It’s the choice of how you deal with everyday annoyances. Joy, on the other hand, is deep inside. It’s something you have whether you are happy or sad, satisfied or annoyed, excited or indifferent.
When we quit worrying over the little things, we can spend time on what is truly important in life.
Each and every day we experience disappointment. Friends who don’t do what we expect, work situations that become fodder for TV sitcoms, plans fail, wishful thinking blows into the wind like a puff of glitter dust.

In this world where the media shows us more bad than good, more sorrow than joy, and more problem than solution, we can work ourselves into a spiraling mess of woe.

Change is a true constant in our lives. It begins the moment we’re born and ends when we take our last breath. While change can bring such joy, it can also bring fear and pain. How we respond to change is the key to thriving and growth.
Situations fall upon us by choices. And it’s not always our choice that causes the problem. What is solely your decision, is your personal reaction to the change. Somehow when you stop fighting it, you begin your journey of growth. Easy? Hardly ever. Scary? You bet. You’ve got to accept it and look for the good, the blessings, the opportunities. But, you also have to look for the lessons.
