Consistent.

My beloved readers, I have a confession: I didn’t feel like blogging today.  I don’t feel extra inspired, and I don’t have an urgency to share any major revelations.  If I can be completely candid with you, I am posting primarily because it is Thursday, and I post on Thursdays. | Consistent. | One of…

Why Not?

I was on a roll typing a completely different blog, then I deleted it for this. | Why Not? | This blog is inspired by the conversation that I just had with my co-worker less than five minutes ago. “I really want to move out of state.  If I don’t move out of state, I…

Grace to Finish

I anxiously stood by the time clock occasionally glancing to check the time.  I was only one minute away from one of my greatest accomplishments.  After a treacherous 60 seconds which felt more like an eternity, I positioned my hand in the holster of the time clock ready to do what I had done four…

Finding the Balance

I’m going to do my level best to get straight to the point today. | Finding the Balance | Today’s post is inspired by the gray clouds that we experienced this morning as well as a post that resurfaced in my Facebook Memories. On this day two  years ago, I posted to my Facebook news…

Following Directions

“I don’t know.”  That was my entire response when asked what I was going to do next. Usually that response would be a defense mechanism for what I really know in my heart but am afraid to speak out of my mouth.  In this case, I really didn’t know, and the fact that I didn’t…

No Apologies Necessary

I felt bad; how could I not?  We had once relished in the fact that we were both barely making it.  Strangely we bonded because we were both “scratching and surviving.”  Misery definitely found company between us, and I would be breaking up the party.  How dare I get better, be happy, and move on? …

It’s About the Journey

There it was.  Though I knew the time was approaching, it was so surreal seeing my name on that sheet of paper.  In that moment it really clicked that I was far from my beginning, the end was closer than I accounted for, but most importantly, I had survived everything in the middle… |It’s About…

Lesson Learned

I missed last week’s blog, but if you are an avid follower, you knew that already.  I can explain though.  The long and short of the story is that I was too busy for my own good.  Anyway, thanks for coming back today.  *hugs and kisses* | Lesson Learned | It is so hard to…

What Did I Say?

Transparent moment: I’ve had some trepidation about blogging this week. I feel as if I have hit some kind of rough patch or something.  When my life was in shambles, when I was picking myself up off the ground, when I was climbing from the bottom, and when I was encouraging others when I really…

The Note

Preface: Please forgive my two weeks of silence.  Between the Thanksgiving holiday and a bit too much on my plate, two Thoughtful Thursdays slipped away without me sharing.  It is my hope to be back on track now.  Thanks for understanding. Now that I’ve gotten that out the way, let me be honest with you. …
