The Diagnosis…and Beyond

I’ve always known that my mind worked quite a bit differently than most. But although I had labeled myself as ADHD and actually twice tried medications to help control it, I didn’t feeling understand its ramifications until just recently. An initial intake visit with a new therapist opened the door to a discussion of bothContinue reading “The Diagnosis…and Beyond”

Change,,,the Only Constant in Life

As I grow older, and hopefully wiser, I am reminded that one of the only constants in our lives is change. As the seasons roll through, one to the other, so our worlds do as well. And as individuals, we too find ourselves changing with the times. I tend to think of myself as aContinue reading “Change,,,the Only Constant in Life”

Faith Amidst Struggles, Regardless of Circumstances

I am reminded this day that the strongest of faiths can be built during the most trying of circumstances. I look back on my life and see that the times when my faith was bolstered the most was when life had dealt its harshest blows. Such is the way life works…such is the way faithContinue reading “Faith Amidst Struggles, Regardless of Circumstances”

Stop Wondering the “Whys” in Life…

I’ve had a lot of time to reflect here the past several weeks and a part of what I’ve learned is that I’ve had an insatiable desire to know “why” things in life have turned out as they have. I want to get at the root cause of things and be able to rationalize whyContinue reading “Stop Wondering the “Whys” in Life…”

Perspective on God…

I recently saw a friend post a picture of herself on the beach with the caption “God is so good.” That same friend, on her way home from the beach, was having car problems. I reminded her in a comment to “Remember that God is good.” Other situations come to mind. Someone is having severeContinue reading “Perspective on God…”

Two Weeks Away from Social Media

Tonight I’m beginning a two week break from Facebook. I’ve once again realized how much mindless time I spend on it and think being away for a while will do me some good. I’ve left instructions on my page on how to access the daily posts I do for those who really want to continueContinue reading “Two Weeks Away from Social Media”

The Universe Responds, Like It or Not…

I have come to the conclusion that the Universe as we know it does indeed respond to what we are putting out there. You can call it “manifesting” or any one of other terms, but it does indeed exist. Recently finding myself in one of those periods in life I refer to as the “doldrums,”Continue reading “The Universe Responds, Like It or Not…”

Change and Resulting Fear…

There are times in all of our lives where change is inevitable. In fact, I think it can be said the only constant in life IS change. And when change is occurring, many times fear can crop up along with it. A lot of the time fear is present in our lives, it’s because thereContinue reading “Change and Resulting Fear…”

Intimacy…or lack thereof

I’ve recently done some soul searching and in the process, have read something about being authentic with others, an area I will admit I’ve struggled with in the past. I make these notes to myself and think perhaps others will connect with them as well. “To be authentic,,,What does that mean?” Never listen to anybody,Continue reading “Intimacy…or lack thereof”
