A Prayer for When I am Anxious

Sometimes, I wake up with some anxiety. I play my upcoming busy day in my head over and over, which is silly, because really, I don’t know how it is going to go.  I did that this morning when I woke my own self up thinking about the million things that I have to get...

There are certain people in this world that stand out as nothing short of extraordinary. It is not because of one single act or something largely spectacular that they once did, rather it is because of the culmination of the thousands of little things that they do every day. These rare individuals are like angels...

A Little Sauntering, Anyone?

I feel like we all need to practice a little sauntering in our lives. It puts things into perspective. Slows our roll just a little bit. We are programed to go SO FAST now – always rushing from one thing to the next. 100 MPH all day until we crash at night…only to get up...

For this I am Grateful

Sweat is pouring down my face and my shirt is soaking wet. I am out of breath on my Peloton working harder than I thought that I ever would have been able to. I smile as I look at the words that I had written a little over a year ago on the mirror in...

You never know…

The sun was shining. It was one of those “not one cloud in the sky” days. We just finished a semi-long but very challenging hike up Cathedral Rock and then down to the river off off the Templeton Trail. We sat on a large rock by the water and ate salami sandwich rollups I made...

Second Wind

Whenever I start to hike, roughly for the first half of it, I kind of drag ass. I know…SHOCKING for someone who loves to hike so much! I don’t know why this happens, it is just a struggle. I don’t quite “feel” like putting forth the effort that it is going to take to complete...

Doubt and Trust

We have these 2 sculptures in our house that we picked up in Jerome, AZ that were made by a Christian artist. The second I saw them, I fell in love with what they represented. The first one is of a man sitting a huge rock. He is blindfolded and holding a large rock in...

Want to succeed in business? Show some class.

I saw this meme a few days go and saved it, like I do to many that speak to me in one way or the other. When I read it, it made me laugh because this is something I talk about a lot. Someone’s gotta say it. Where did our “class” go? In that same...

46

Yesterday, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I noticed some wrinkles that I could swear popped up over night and a random very long gray eyebrow hair that I am very certain was not there last night before I went to bed. It is still a mystery how a gray hair can grow...

Self Worth

We see ourselves as broken. Not good enough. Too tired or too fat. Too skinny or not smart enough. Unforgivable. Too much baggage. We think that someone can’t possibly love us because of….whatever!  So what do we do? We settle. We settle for the mundane job…the unfulfilling and not-so-right relationship. We acquiesce in mediocrity and...
