Do I have one?
I read this in my devotional this morning:
To find joy in this day, you must live within its boundaries.
This really hit home with another book I am currently reading The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod, I’ll provide a review when I finish it. Hal talks about having a reason to get up in the morning, ones raison d’être if you will. He says that you can have more than one, but you have at least one, and to be honest, I am at a loss to figure out what mine is. I mean I can go with the basic one he states, to be the best me I can be, but I just feel that there is more to it, at least for me. Continue reading
Enough talk, it’s time to see some action!
I have spent the last several months reading everything I have been able to get my hands on, and watching documentary after documentary. I’ve been up and down on the emotional roller coaster, yet again, with how I’m so sick and tired of not getting everything I need from the medical field, but even more so about how industries with enough money can influence what we hear from the government on things that really matter. *sigh* I’m not going to go into a rant here, on this, I promise, at least not this post.

Do your actions line up with your words?
Gandhi is credited with saying “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”, and although I did not personally hear him say it, I have never questioned its authenticity. Gandhi lived his entire life in a way that actually brought about change. But what does it actually mean to ‘be the change’? How is it even applicable in this day and age? The answer to this can be found in another quote from Gandhi, “To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.” Continue reading
is the first step in the right direction
I have too much stuff, I’ve already admitted that I like having my stuff, and I know that my husband would be much happier living in a place where we only had the stuff we need. So I’m doing what I can to deal with my attachments to these things, and really work on getting rid of stuff. Continue reading
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
Years ago, when I first heard Michael Jackson sing these words, I only thought I understood them. I was twenty-two at the time, and really didn’t get it, how could I? I hadn’t been raised to have a Global mindset. I feel, that at least for many of us, we cannot truly see past our circles, be it our family circle, our circle of friends, our work friends circle, and/or our neighborhood. We know the world is out there, and that there are lots of other people in it, but our day-to-day thoughts are in the area around us, and with the people close to our hearts. Now, I know there are people who are global minded, for good and for bad; I’m speaking about those of us who rarely give thought to how our actions are more than mere drops in a bucket. We rarely consider that the bucket actually overflows into a river that influences more than just our families and neighborhoods. Continue reading
…even if you go kicking and screaming
This Sunday starts my 30 day challenge, determining what items I truly use in the kitchen. It is, however, just the tip of the iceberg, or maybe the start of an avalanche, I’m not entirely sure which. LOL Continue reading
and I am a material girl!
Let me state that I am not a hoarder, but I will admit that I have my things, and I am attached to them. I will also admit, this once, that I know I get defensive when my husband starts talking to me about getting rid of my things. Continue reading
