Moment of Truth Monday

Depending on your definition of a morning person, I may or may NOT be one. I [might] prefer keeping talking to a minimum while my brain wakes up and my limbs respond to its corresponding signals. In the morning, I [might] drag around with a cup of hot tea giving silent smiles to morning greetings.…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Moment of Truth Monday

Relationships are both work and reward. Without the work {which often consists of an unmatched level of vulnerability and humility}, the reward of growing deeper in love and compassion is often missed.

I’m a big fan of words. The #sowkind movement is [after all] rooted in my belief that words have the ability to influence stories, change seasons, and adjust perspectives. Words really matter, but words alone are not enough. Very often in my parenting-I have used a phrase that was as much for me as it…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Moment of Truth Monday

Running has always been a natural tendency of mine. Not in the lace up your shoes and pound the pavement kind of way, but from circumstances and situations. It’s instinctive, really. I was created with a small dose of fight, and an excessive amount of flight! After years of hindsight, I figured out that fear…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday
