It’s Time

Happy New Year to you. I pray you have left the past in the past. We don’t need to take anger, resentment, grief, sadness, jealousy, and toxic folks into the new year. I pray that our vision boards are filled with words like compassion, love, forgiveness, gratitude, and joy, and that our goals are toContinue reading “It’s Time”

The Christmas Card

I opened a Christmas card today from one of my favorite social media influencers. I dedicate this to her today. Dearest Stephanie, I must admit I just now opened your beautiful Christmas card. When I saw your name & return address my eyes became tear-filled. It was tears of gratefulness for you. For you honoringContinue reading “The Christmas Card”

Not Tree Gifts but Need Gifts

It’s not the most wonderful time of the year for everyone. For many if not the majority it’s a time of pain due to grief. Not just grief from empty chairs at the table but grief from not receiving the gifts we need. Instead of the gifts under the tree let’s give the gifts weContinue reading “Not Tree Gifts but Need Gifts”

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”

What is the Enneagram?

A tool that guides us to learn our authentic selves. We are not as we think we are not our traumas, childhood wounds, and our beliefs based on our parents’ and caretakers’ beliefs. We are not our generational curses. We are made in the image of God. If we are made in God’s image thenContinue reading “What is the Enneagram?”

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”

Presence for Presents

I want to start by saying “Thank you” to each one who has supported me through my shared purpose of Dealing to Healing. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read in a microwave culture. We are looking for quick flicks and one-liners because there’s so much to see on all social media platformsContinue reading “Presence for Presents”

The Helper

To know an Enneagram type two is to love them. If you know a “Helper”, then you know, you always have somebody in your corner to empathetically listen, help you with projects, and always be willing to go out of their way. Living in an average healthy range we will find type two people becomingContinue reading “The Helper”

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”

That Didn’t Feel Good

While I was in Enneagram school, I learned that I am I “think and do” type and I suppress my feelings. That was hard for me to digest because I thought that I was a “feeler and doer” more than a thinker. So I bought another Enneagram book to understand this challenge. Fast forward IContinue reading “That Didn’t Feel Good”
