Secondhand resentment

I almost always write a new blog on a Tuesday or Thursday morning. That’s when I have time to sit, reflect, read, and listen for God’s promptings. Today is Saturday and it is 4:17PM. So who knows how this is going to turn out. But I have something on my mind that I am guessingContinue reading “Secondhand resentment”

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?”

Banana-Benders and Tik Tok Tics

Last week I took a jet ski tour around the island of Key West. I got to see the second biggest house on the island which used to be Pablo Escabar’s home/headquarters. And who has the largest? None other than Taylor Swift who has just completed construction. Apparently it has a lazy river running aroundContinue reading “Banana-Benders and Tik Tok Tics”

It’s not in my gift set or why I started writing. Last week I talked to someone who has a degreeContinue reading ““You Too? Me Too.””

Night-Writer

I am writing at night. I NEVER write at night. I was sitting in my hot tub, trying to calm the crazy brain I have had today. All weekend actually. It’s nothing bad, just too much. I couldn’t keep my mind from racing so I tried the hot tub. It worked. Not the hot tubContinue reading “Night-Writer”

“Trigger-Happy”

Does anyone else have “triggers?”. I remember a superficial trigger I used to have when I was pregnant with my oldest child. Before that time, I was an exercise and health-food Nazi. In college, while all the girls were ordering pizza at 10:00 at night, I was eating my Snackwell Cookies (which may or mayContinue reading ““Trigger-Happy””
