Am I Needy?

There aren't too many women out there who could say that they didn't need something, whether it be clothes, kitchen utensils, a man, a job, a car; it's human nature to expand their list of possessions.

Am I All That…

IntrospectiveSunday Allow me to finish that question:  Am I all that I’m supposed to be?  Probably not…I don’t think any of us are. What we …

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. And if you're like me, such a bag is usually necessary to bring along all the things I need for my children and my own indulgences. Though physically we can handle extra weight (for awhile), we are not meant to carry around emotional baggage. What am I talking about? You know....really, you do. That job crisis you had last year; the fight you had with your husband; the breast cancer scare from three years ago; the rejection from sixth grade...

What Is Your State of Mind, Really?

Today's world bombards us with pictures of the perfect life. Most of which are not even fair to be promoted as ideals - illusions at best.

Fortunate Friday: Truth

A woman's day is filled with opportunities. We give, receive, love, hate; we choose in which direction our lives go; we seek truth or we settle for less. It's up to us to find true joy and fulfillment.

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.

Do You Have Regrets?

Your cruising along on the highway; suddenly, you realize that you left your laptop on the kitchen table. "You, dumb ass!" slips from your lips and you veer off at the next exit to retrieve the Power Point presentation that would surely land you favor (even a promotion) at work.

Are You At Peace?

There is a secret I want to share with you. I learned this exercise about 2 years ago when I was working on healing from terrible chronic headaches.

What Is Hope?

Remember when you were waiting on that special guy to pop the question or expecting your first child? Can you recall dreaming or even visualizing these important events when you were a teen or even a young girl? Through hope we actually begin to form our lives from the beginning.

A Surge of Feminine Energy

I don't know if you've noticed, but women are shifting into higher gears and focusing more on life goals and dreams. This may be a worldwide trend amongst humans in general; however, I feel a distinct feminine energy surrounding this front of powerful changes.

Holding On and Letting Go

As women we inevitably face choices. Ones that are hard and ones that require little thought, if any at all - life's opportunities. We either have the opportunity to change something or allow it to remain the same.

This Too Shall Pass

The stark reality of life can sometimes bring us to the point of confusion, desperation, and even self-destruction. Not to dwell on the negative, on the contrary, I want to share about the place that is on the other side of difficulties and tragedy - the place where you can look back and see that you were strong and brave.

Am I Selfish?

Introspective Sunday: Am I selfish? There is one problem with this question...that is if you actually are selfish. Most people who are self-centered won't even entertain the thought that they have "it's all about me" syndrome, at least until they have a revelation.

Liberation

Liberation: Posing Nude, Shaving Your Head, and Skinny Dipping What makes a woman feel free? Is it dancing to her favorite tunes while no one is looking or driving down a country road at 75 MPH (that one might be more of a man thing)? Regardless of "what" makes us feel free, we need to at least try to break out of stale routines and inhibitions occasionally.
