One White Duck

Do you ever just see yourself, your life, and your future as being a part of one big scene of camouflaged wilderness? You know...it all seems to blend in without uniqueness or boldness.

Look Both Ways Before Crossing the Street

Moving ahead in life (crossing the street) is just another way of bringing clarity about who you are and understanding of "what" lies before you. Though there may be scary things or challenges to that move, it still is a part of life, the "real" life we are supposed to live.

Our wonderfully made bodies and spirits are equipped with the best bells and whistles there are. We have the "guts" to get the glory. All we have to do is believe it and utilize the power in which we've been given.

Creative Thinking: Friend or Foe?

First of all, when you create, you take a chance that other people won't like your creation. You might get ridiculed for it, or even be hated. They might never speak to you again...or visit your blog.

Making Decisions

Today's topic is one with which many have trouble - on a daily basis. It is making decisions and acting upon them. I, for one, am one of those who don't find making some decisions to be pleasant; therefore, I avoid them.

Be True to Yourself

My mom died of cancer at the age of 52. That’s way too young! Why?? Through the years I have thought of her and asked God that question. Consequently, I now know why she went to an early grave. My dad was strong and authoritative, from the generation that taught him to be the head of the household and that the wife must submit to his every wish, while giving up her own desires and dreams.

Age, Beauty, and Health

I am reminded every day of my age by looking in the mirror, remembering my oldest daughter's is 24, and by the wisdom (and trivia) that I have acquired over the years. I'm not going to write about mid-life crises or anything like that. On the contrary, I believe that neither your state of health nor your beauty should have one iota to do with the number of years you've been on the planet; unless, of course, they are better because you have made a few more mistakes and learned from them.
