Love ❤️ is the Target 🎯

If your son, daughter, mother or father or someone you dearly loved was gay, queer, bisexual, transgender, or plus would you be posting the viral videos of Target’s new attire? Would you be so judgmental? Note that Target is behind. They are not the first major retailer to launch attire for PRIDE 🌈 month. NordstromContinue reading “Love ❤️ is the Target 🎯”

Mom’s Broken Mirror

“As newborn babies, we arrived in the world with natural, innate needs that had to be met for us to develop into mature human beings. However, even in the best circumstances, our parents inevitably could not meet all of our developmental needs perfectly. No matter how well-intentioned they were, at certain times they had difficultyContinue reading “Mom’s Broken Mirror”

Let the Wind Blow

Last year was one of the best years of my life. I embraced it and still relish in all of it but truth be told January 1st all hell broke loose and my life went from sunny skies to a tornado touchdown or at least it felt that way. I thought for about 60 daysContinue reading “Let the Wind Blow”

Nothing is as Scary

I’ve done a lot of scary things in my lifetime. I left home when I was 17 years old with a brand new job and brand new bills all in the same week. I was scared to death. I had a baby after unknowingly getting pregnant on birth control pills. The delivery was an emergencyContinue reading “Nothing is as Scary”

Same Old Same Old

I asked someone the other day, “How are you doing?” They replied “Same ol’ same ol’.” We’ve heard that reply or something similar at least one hundred times. I’ve said it and you probably have as well. But listen and watch what you say, “Same old same old” equates to nothing changing. And if nothingContinue reading “Same Old Same Old”

Expectation is the Root

One of the most challenging lessons I believe we keep repeating because we are not getting it is “Expectation”. Expectations are attachments to outcomes from people and things. Every day I tell myself “Don’t expect” because I know if I expect then I have an attachment to how I want the outcome. And if theContinue reading “Expectation is the Root”

A Change Won’t Do You Good

Sheryl Crow did a song in the mid-90s called “A Change Would Do You Good.” I’m partial to the song even with the abstract lyrics, I’ve applied the course to my life many times. Change is often good. Change is imperative if we want to grow in our environments, like from Blackberry phones to smartphones.Continue reading “A Change Won’t Do You Good”

Pain, Suffering & Death

Another shocking, heartbreaking, tragedy happened today when we learned of another nationally known talent that left us way too soon due to indescribable pain. Suffering that no amount of fame or fortune can subside the pain. No amount of love from family or friends can stop the suffering. In 2011 my only nephew took hisContinue reading “Pain, Suffering & Death”

Me vs Me in 2023

I spent over 50 years trying to fix things, people, and situations around me for me. I put a lot of energy and time into a lot of people. If you glanced at my resume of helping people and fixing situations it would be deserving of an award. When I stayed isolated for months grievingContinue reading “Me vs Me in 2023”

Reasons to Let Them Go

It seems I’ve fallen off blogging regularly this week but I’m super focused on a multitude of personal things including my son’s wedding. I’m also putting a lot of time and attention into my Enneagram sessions. The same item that seems to come up is toxic relationships and/or relationship changes. It’s not surprising to learnContinue reading “Reasons to Let Them Go”
