Off the Emotional Sobriety Wagon

In the past month, since my father-in-law passed away on June 19th, 2021, it has been a whirlwind. We spent a few days in Vegas when he passed, came home, and I left 3 days later for a work trip in South Carolina. A week after I returned, we left for a memorial service inContinue reading “Off the Emotional Sobriety Wagon”

Where’s Ron?

For the past 30 years I have been traveling to various locations with my in-laws. During these trips, my father-in-law, Ron, regularly went missing. You can imagine how the hunt for Ron was exacerbated by the absence of cell phones in the earlier days. Without them, how exactly does one find a missing Ron atContinue reading “Where’s Ron?”

“What you think of me is none of my business.”

What other people think of me is crucial (good or bad). Other people’s success is a threat to mine (especially in areas that I wish to be successful). If I am not “as good as” someone else, I am inadequate. If you read my blog about a month ago (A Beautiful Beatdown), I listed aContinue reading ““What you think of me is none of my business.””

House of Fear

Lately, I haven’t sat down long enough to write anything except contracts. I am a Realtor in Springfield, Illinois, a small midwestern city. Lately, I feel like I live in California (minus the perfect weather and beaches and healthy restaurants). I feel like this because the real estate market is in crazy-mode right now. IContinue reading “House of Fear”

My MultiTasking Mind

I find it comical (and telling) that from the moment I decided to address the second lie from my post “A beautiful beat-down”, I have been nothing but distracted. The Lie: ” Multi-tasking (read: living in two or more places/realities at once) is the productive and responsible way to live.” This morning, I have definitelyContinue reading “My MultiTasking Mind”

“You’re so hard to be nice to”

Usually, if a blog doesn’t roll out of my head and through my fingers in a pretty natural way, it means I am forcing it and should probably pause and question whether I am supposed to be writing about it at all. For days, I have been planning to write about one of the biggestContinue reading ““You’re so hard to be nice to””

A beautiful beat-down

Before I even got there I was feeling intimidated. I was meeting with a friend who has an amazing social media presence and since I can barely figure out how to post and I feel thoroughly self-conscious and inadequate when I do, I figured she might be able to help a girl out.  It startedContinue reading “A beautiful beat-down”

Glitchy

I finally came up with a word to describe what my insides feel like these days: glitchy. Actually, I am not even sure it’s a real word, but the experience is real — 100%. My life appears normal and some of the time it mimics normal, when all of a sudden there is a break,Continue reading “Glitchy”

Ladder-Life: The Rungs of Comparison

One of my many character defects has been blowing me up lately. As far as I can tell, it has been triggered by a combination of new life-circumstances, some exciting and some frustrating. I have been involved in some opportunities relating to my blog/book which is very exciting. I have also been struggling at workContinue reading “Ladder-Life: The Rungs of Comparison”

The return of the “old normal” (somedaysoon)

Just as I was pondering how to begin a blog about my Unique Ego, a school bus passed my house. For those of you reading this on March 1, 2021, you will understand why this entry is about to take a turn. We are in what feels like the winding down of the Covid-19 PandemicContinue reading “The return of the “old normal” (somedaysoon)”
