Moment of Truth Monday

Change is good and difficult. Many things in my life right now are a mix of excitement and exhaustion. Transitions are often conduits of such tensions. When I find myself knee deep in tension, my first instinct is to get out as fast as humanly possible. My tendency to run is rooted in my desire…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

The Truth About Triggers

Trigger warning: __________________. It seems like every other post I read has a ‘trigger’ warning. These warnings, while intended to be a nod toward consideration {and I appreciate that kindness}, give me permission to scroll on when I may need to sit with big emotions. The fact of the matter is, we were created to experience deep feelings. That’s…… Continue reading The Truth About Triggers

Of course he would want healing, right? Maybe…… Continue reading A Valid Question

Alignment: proper or desirable coordination or relation of components. When your car needs an alignment, it pulls to one side instead of moving forward in a straight trajectory.  Braces are used to achieve proper alignment of teeth.  A level is used to assure pictures are hung with equal distribution-so as not to be catawampus. In…… Continue reading In Need of an Alignment

Are You Forcing a Blessing?

One never knows what chance treasure these easy unconscious rollers may toss-up, on the smooth white sand of the conscious mind, what perfectly rounded stone, what rare shell from the ocean floor…but it must not be sought for or-heaven forbid!-dug for. No, no dredging of the sea bottom here. That would defeat one’s purpose. The…… Continue reading Are You Forcing a Blessing?
