Being One Call Away

I heard this song a few weeks ago while driving in the car with Lucy. I started laughing and told her that this song was about her! I know, I know...it's about me but deflecting was entertaining for a minute. I use to think I was Superwoman. Well, that's not quite the truth. I didn't... Continue Reading →

Annoying…

Last week, my best friend, Lucy, and I decided to start doing aquatic exercises. We've been working out for about an hour to an hour and 10 minutes each day we go. Today Lucy wasn't feeling well so she didn't want to go. For a brief second I thought, "Well, if she's not going to go... Continue Reading →

Light the Way

I have been invited to share my testimony with a local Celebrate Recovery group and I am honored yet, a little fearful. It has been so long since I have shared my story in front of a group and of course, all those little voices started dancing in my head. "You're not good enough, what makes... Continue Reading →

A Thought Provoking Question From Lucy

Yesterday, my best friend Lucy and I took a trip to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park to visit the Japanese Tea Gardens. I can't even begin to tell you about the wonderful adventures we had. We laughed so much and so hard, others probably thought we were drunk or on drugs...especially on the paddle boat!... Continue Reading →

Well…I can laugh now.

I have a little story to tell you about my total relapse into codependency last night. This blog is about the good, the bad and the ugly so I guess I better come clean. I wouldn't consider it quite "ugly" but it probably falls in the higher end of bad...but funny. Let me give you... Continue Reading →

Confrontation & Consequences

Have I told you before how much I HATE confrontation? Some people don't care one way or the other and have no problem confronting someone or being confronted. Some people actually enjoy it and go out of their way to cause it. Me, I hate it! The old me would avoid it at ALL costs; my... Continue Reading →

Day 2 ~ 3 Day Quote Challenge

This is a great quote from the movie, Bridemaids!  Too many times I was stuck in looking at the problems and everything that was going wrong in my life. Other people were not doing what I needed them to do to feel safe, secure and whole. Other people hurt me and used me. Even things... Continue Reading →

Someday I’ll Get It Right

Well, I failed myself this weekend. Just when I think I've got it, I do something so stupid to prove to myself that I don't. Thank God I'm striving for progress and not perfection but I'm doing a pretty good job of beating myself up for it. This past Sunday I was able to visit... Continue Reading →

Being Real

Several months ago I created a post with extremely foul language, filled with anger and hatred. A couple of months later, I took that post down because I didn't want to offend anyone and I also did not want people to think I was just some trashy, foul-mouthed lunatic, if that were the only post...

Speaking Your Truth

I did something this morning. Something that made me uncomfortable and just a bit nervous. It wasn't easy but it needed to be done, for me, so I did it. I spoke my truth. Why is it so difficult for me to speak my truth? Melody Beattie's book, "Codependent No More", has 9 pages of... Continue Reading →

Living With An Attitude of Gratitude

Throughout the years, life has brought me many trials and challenges. Most I struggled with or failed at, which made my time in these seasons longer than was probably necessary. I can tell you with certainty that my attitude during these trials played a large part in the length of time I spent in the season... Continue Reading →
