Why Am I Afraid of People?

I really enjoy writing these self-evaluating posts on Sunday; they are as useful for my own growth as I hope they are for yours. Today's topic is one that, yes, I have asked myself in the past...and do still occasionally. Fear can be paralyzing, especially if it doesn't make sense. Let me explain.

Do I Have Emotional Baggage?

Women know better than anyone what it feels like to carry around a big, heavy purse for any length of time.

Fortunate Friday: Revelation

This week has been one of soul-searching and self-examination...no, not the breast kind. I've been seeking to understand myself in a greater way- the inside person who drives the bus, so to speak. It's not all glory and gum drops you see. It's been a tough journey of realizing that I have a ton of work to do.

Are Your Wounds Healed?

Do you remember falling off your bike and skinning your knee as a child? Boy, did that hurt. I would run home crying, expecting that my mom would fix me up with peroxide and a bandaid. With the mom-love-laced patch up job, I'd run right back out the door for some backyard frolicking.
