This Year I'm Trying To Be Brave

This Year I'm Trying To Be Brave

  The Year of Being Brave This year I'm trying to be brave. I have long ago stopped participating in the New Year Resolutions. I just try to figure relevant ways to improve myself as a person, and make better inner peace with myself. To take baby steps toward...

Because I Have Eyes To See

  Because these eyes are dealing with disease that slowly robs me of sight, I've spent a lot of time pondering over the blessing of what I can see. Where, at one time, I may have  casually seen things in passing,  it's no longer that simple. With the illness,...

Just Breathe

  Sometimes I need to stop, sit down, and just breathe. You know? For some reason, I figured that as I got older, things would slow down. Calm down. Simmer down. I was mostly wrong.  The world seems to spin at a constantly faster pace, and there are still times...

Perspective Is Everything

Perspective Is Everything

  It snowed again. I watched the flakes turn from tiny, wet ones to large, perfectly shaped individual geometric patterns. I got caught up in thoughts of how perspective is everything. It made me think of the Jim Carrey movie -How the Grinch Stole Christmas - and...

A Little Bit of Humor Goes A Long Way

So, I was having a crummy part-of-day. Then, I learned [once again] that a little bit of humor goes a long way.  Seems like, if I can find something to tickle my funny bone, the sour mood dissipates. For a while, anyway, all is right with the world. C'mon. When you...

  One good Christmas gift we can give ourselves and the world around us? The gift of good humor. I have laughed my way through a lot of life, so far... Having learned it is more productive, more effective, and more fun than weeping or wringing my hands. But I've...

Humor – Laught At It and Live With It

Humor – Laught At It and Live With It

Humor is a good gift.  I have to use it... otherwise, I might have lost what's left of my mind by now. Ha. This is a mantra I use: If you can laugh at it, you can live with it. That's what Erma Bombeck said. Well, I also saw Author Unknown. So I'm not sure who...

Can You Keep A Secret?

Can You Keep A Secret?

  Can you keep a secret? I'm going to step way out of my comfort zones. Either I'm being brave enough to share something really personal, or I've temporarily lost my mind. If you are a personal friend, don't comment. 🙂 On Monday, I'm having my left eye cut open,...

Writing to Get the Hurt Out – Who Knew?

A few years ago, I got this itching to write words. Not for songs. Not for any particular reason.... As it turned out, I was writing to get the hurt out. Who knew? When my mom died, I felt like an orphan. That's because my dad had passed away nine years before her. I...
