Who Pulled the Trigger: An American Problem and A Mom’s prayer.

This must be one of the scariest things that has passed through my hands, but it can’t sit in my heart. I know I’m going to piss off just about everyone I know, and everyone can find something here to be offended about.  But we can’t play the “offended” card while children are dying.  So,Continue reading “Who Pulled the Trigger: An American Problem and A Mom’s prayer.”

Take a Break.

This was my view on my way in to work this morning. It told me even the sun, brilliant as she is, needs to hide sometimes. It doesn’t mean she’s not enough. It doesn’t mean she’s not there. It just means she can’t shine so bright, every day. If the sun needs to withdraw fromContinue reading “Take a Break.”

Seeing Sensitivity as a Superpower

Being sensitive in a cruel world is, in itself, an act of courage. -MV “Sensitive” is Not a Bad Word I have been called sensitive at different points in life. It seems to be a running theme. And the only thing that really changed is how I feel about it. I learned to embrace thisContinue reading “Seeing Sensitivity as a Superpower”

Run Out

The best advice I can give. Run Out. Run out of excuses. Run out of fear. Run out of pretenses. Run out of patience for people who don’t treat you right. Run out of comfort with things that are smaller than you are. Run out of things that numb your feelings. Run out and findContinue reading “Run Out”

2022.

My New Year’s Resolution: To not relive the same year, over again. I don’t know if it will be “happy,” but by God, it will be new. New standards. New boundaries. New confidence. New patterns. New habits. New rules. New faith. Same me. Same game. New way of playing it. Starting with me. New ways.Continue reading “2022.”

Through the Motions

I think sometimes we love someone so much because of who they were. And sometimes, we love someone so much because of who we were when we were with them. And if you have to say goodbye, it feels like you’re saying goodbye to your favorite version of you, too. We moved around a lot,Continue reading “Through the Motions”

Towards the Sun

To my Sunflowers, It’s not the first time I receive a song, just at the right time, with just the right message, to get me through a tough time. This one, came to me through my children, as is frequently the case nowadays. They picked a favorite movie, and in it, I found this amazingContinue reading “Towards the Sun”

The Winds of Nothing

I find myself in the middle of a certain season, and looking back, I can’t place exactly when the wind starting blowing. I know that I had a good stretch of nothing- nothing went wrong. Weekends were spent doing nothing. Nothing really to worry about. But my anxious mind can’t let good be good enough.Continue reading “The Winds of Nothing”

Timing

Isn’t life funny sometimes? Tonight, I gave the best budget workshop of my career, at a higher level than I ever have, better than I ever have, and in a place that really needed it. I also never wanted to do it. I used to do this sort of thing, for a bigger company, forContinue reading “Timing”

Failing Big, Learning Bigger, and Rising Again.

How failure taught me to live and work without fear, who exactly I was, and how I learned to love myself again. Experience teaches; and good or bad, it’s all experience.

Glimmers

When I started this website ten years ago, I called it “Glimmers”. Let me tell you why that made sense. Because at twenty-something, I could only see glimmers of truth. We did so much to keep ourselves busy, to distract ourselves. We stayed so busy, it drowned out most of reality, most of the truth.Continue reading “Glimmers”
