How important is it?

One of my favorite things about my 12 Step Recovery group is that it gives me slogans to live by that can be recalled readily for any given situation. If you aren’t part of one, you should know that one probably exists to help you with whatever you are dealing with; struggles with being aContinue reading “How important is it?”

How’s hurried and harried Heather?

Since we connected last, I am proud to say that I have mastered the 4 areas (as outlined by John Mark Comer) required to “ruthlessly eliminate hurry” from my life. Granted, I was in Myrtle Beach when I wrote my last entry, came home for one day and flew out to Malibu, California to seeContinue reading “How’s hurried and harried Heather?”

Striving to death

I tend to be a woman of extremes. I struggle with neutrality. Or maybe the word is contentment. If you are in my sphere, you have probably heard me utter phrases like, “I’m burning up!”, “I am freezing to death!”, “I am so full I may never eat again!”, “This always happens to me!”, “ThatContinue reading “Striving to death”

A Thrill of Hope

Last month I did a book signing at Stepping Stones Bookstore in Iowa. The owner, my lovely new friend Mindy, let me take over the front of the store for the whole day and gave a lavish and gushingly grand testimony about my books to each and every customer (You can order from her storeContinue reading “A Thrill of Hope”

IT (You are not IT)

Pretty sure IT is one of the scariest movies ever. The movie IT, by Steven KIng, is about a demonic clown who terrorizes a group of kids. Just watching the previews is enough to give me nightmares. And to be honest, that’s the only part of the movie I have ever watched; the previews. IContinue reading “IT (You are not IT)”

Start talking to yourself

It has recently been confirmed that I am not crazy. Well, at least “not crazy” in the sense that I am not lying in my book when I say over and over and over that “we are not alone and there is always hope.” This confirmation has come about because I see signs and hearContinue reading “Start talking to yourself”

I Need An Interpreter

When I took my test to get my real estate license, I went in pretty confident. I had aced every practice test and felt even a smidge over-prepared. All I had to do was pass with something like 75%. It wasn’t like this grade was going on a report card or anything. After 3 hoursContinue reading “I Need An Interpreter”

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”

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”
