It’s Not Fine, But It’ll Be Okay

It’s not fine, but it’ll be okay. There was something so reassuring and affirming about hearing those words. Countless times throughout the day we are asked how we are and many of us respond automatically with those simple two words, “I’m fine.” Or, how… Continue Reading “It’s Not Fine, But It’ll Be Okay”

To Live

Let’s live. So often we become robotic clock punchers. Living our lives by routines and obligations. All the things on our to-do lists become quiet bossy dictators of our time, and take over our minds with frantic worrying. Let’s decide what we think. Push… Continue Reading “To Live”

Mile Markers

We live lives full to the brim with various events and doings, but only a handful of them are mile markers. Events that mark a significant period of time, events that veer us off course, and – if we were a house – these… Continue Reading “Mile Markers”

The Power of Belief

Self Worth

I have placed my self worth, like a gift, into the hands of others assuming that if someone else found me desirable, lovable, admirable, and attractive then that must be true.

Forging Your Path

Are you living your life authentically, or are you following a prescribed route or path? A map designed by and for someone else that has very little consideration for who you are. So often there is an idea of who or what we are… Continue Reading “Forging Your Path”

Shared Stories
