Spring Cleaning

With Friday being the First Day of Spring (hallelujah), it’s a perfect time to start thinking about what we need to clean out of our heads, hearts, and spirits to get ready for this new season! All I have to do is look into my pantry to see the pile of junk food – that […]

Failing…Big Time

Have you ever watched one of those singing shows where the contestant tells the television camera that this is their last stop and that if they don’t make it they don’t have a clue what they will do? I’ve often wondered what happens to those people. Do they go on and try again?  Do they […]

The Sky Is Falling…OH NO!!!

Every time I share my struggle with panic, I am amazed at the outpouring of support, encouragement and similar circumstances.  It always saddens me to see how many people in the world deal with this very prevalent issue. I know, I know…it stinks that misery loves company, but it’s sure nice not to be alone! […]

Watching the Chicago Bears football team week in and week out can get pretty depressing since they continue to lose on a regular basis. UGH!!! I think there’s a lesson here, but I sure wish they would hurry up and learn it!!! Clearly, the Bears are not doing so hot, but I’m still wearing their […]

Backsliding

We all have the tendency to backslide.  GRRRRR…. Be it our diet, our work-out routine, anger management, Bible reading, prayer time or hateful words – it matters not what the problem is, but it does matter what we do once we notice. I don’t know about you, but I sometimes see my backsliding behaviors and […]

Risky Business

I only caught the tail-end of Elon Musk’s interview on Sunday night’s 60 Minutes, but it made quite the impression on me.  As a matter of fact, I haven’t been able to think about much else. In case you have no idea who the heck Elon Musk is (no worries, I was clueless, too), let […]

Commitment

The start of a New Year brings about much discussion of resolutions, goals, plans, objectives and getting ourselves motivated to make this year better than the last. Clearly, the year ahead is on my mind because I’ve already written two blogs in the past few weeks about making plans and moving on.  Honestly, I thought […]

Get Out There!

Many of us aspire to do, be and have more in the days ahead.  It’s common for most of us (at any age) to have dreams and goals.  We may not have them written down, but I would dare say that we each have an item or two tucked in a corner somewhere that we […]

Here We Go…Again

How is it that I can desire something SO bad, but NOT follow through?  AND why is it easier to stand still or continue down the wrong path instead of changing a habit or jumping off the bandwagon? CRIMENY!!! Sometimes it feels like the more I desire to do God’s Will, the more the devil […]

Planning and Perseverance

If success was easy, everyone would be a billionaire. The truth about achieving our best in life is that it takes plenty of failed attempts, constant revisions and tearful tries to finally make it to the top of the mountain we are climbing. And wishing won’t help. Honestly, the only thing that leads to victory […]
