Wednesday, July 06, 2016      3 comments

It's so nice to have a day where I'm not running off to meet the Hope Bus or go to the office. Though I did schedule two things for today, I feel no pressure. The first was a walk with my neighbor - Done! Next is visiting a friend who was diagno... Read more

Sunday, July 03, 2016      4 comments

Time was my 2016 Word of the Year. I am admitting that I have not done a good job of being aware of time and how I use it. I think I become so overwhelmed by work that I lose track of my life. I am truly hoping that being a part of the 2016 Summ... Read more

I can't believe we are at the middle of June and I haven't blogged since January! My perception was that I at least blogged a few times this year. So much for perception - must be the same problem with staying focused on nutrition & exercise & s... Read more

If you read yesterday's blog, I wrote that one of the roadblocks to a successful journey for me is getting pulled into the drama that can happen in my workplace. It's very difficult sometimes to sit quietly and not participate in those moments. ... Read more

Part 1 - My word of the year for 2016 is TIME. Last year I heard myself saying, "Where has the time gone? What time is it? Sorry, I'm running late but am on my way. How did it get to be that time?" Lost time. Lost track of time. Living in the pa... Read more

Wednesday, January 21, 2015      8 comments

Since moving to my new apartment, I have learned to love mornings. My living room window faces east, so Katie & I get to watch the sun say "good morning." It is a quiet neighborhood, and so the silence of the outdoors, the sun when she rises (e... Read more
