Today, I came upon my youngest daughter sitting cross-legged on the living room couch, head down, hands folded in her lap, her princess shoes lined up carefully on the floor in front of the couch. Not trying to play into it all too much, I attempted to make light of the situation … “Hi Cambri!”… Continue reading It’s Hard to Pretend
This week, “quitting” has been at the forefront of my mind. Initially, when considering quitting, a slurry of condemning phrases swirls in my mind. You’re such a quitter! What a loser! Winners never quit! You never stick with anything! After the initial onslaught of condemnation though and some more careful consideration of quitting, I found… Continue reading Quitting
You get to decide WHO you want to be … This was but one lesson I’ve tried teaching my children in the last week or so … it started with a bean bag toss game, in which we attempted to throw bean bags (in our case, Mr. Noodles) into a bucket … the kids did… Continue reading Who Do You Want to Be?

Lately, I’ve been “hearing” the phrase “Do it anyway!” in my head (and on my heart). It’s now been 170 days since schools closed back in March. Of course, this was followed by MONTHS at home in social isolation. Summer seemed to open things back up to some extent, but social distancing is still being… Continue reading Do It Anyway!
Is there something in your life right now that you don’t like? Something that’s bothering you? Something that doesn’t align with the life you want?
