Word Crush Wednesday

I love this!!! I’ve been struggling with some old habits and ruts that are easy for me to fall into. I have a habit of pushing people away, shutting people out, not communicating, and shutting down. My old thinking was to push people away so they don’t leave me, shun me, or hurt me. I’ve…

Music Crush Monday

When I first left my abusive marriage this song was popular. My daughter and I used to sing it together. It was so powerful and so healing at that time. I knew that I had learned to live half alive in that relationship. I knew that it has all but cost me my life. I…

Piece by piece I have been putting pieces together for myself. I’m not sure if they are fit together as they once were. But you know what? I kinda like me. I think I can be better, I think I can do more, I’m certain I’m not done with the pieces. I used to believe…

This really struck me today. You know I’ve often found myself “settling”…for many things. I’ve settled for a McDonald’s burger when I really wanted a delicious thick juicy perfectly cooked steak. I’ve settled for friends who only want to get together when they have nothing better to do. I’ve settled for different shoes when they…

Transformation Tuesday

JANEtalks on surrendering to you your own reality. I needed to remind myself today that while I have experienced some very trying times recently, I did not give up!

I had never heard this song before. It came up when I googled songs about bringing yourself down. At first, it didn’t really connect with my thoughts, but the more I listened, the more I realized that in fact, it DID connect. It connected because even though what made the artists day a good one…
