I have been trying to figure out the answer to this for years! I have managed to let go of stuff here and there, but more times than not, I regret it. Often times I end up replacing it…but truthfully, those things are mostly cookbooks and kitchen items. The problem is, there is a bunch of stuff in my house I want rather need* to get rid of, but there is a slight emotional attachment to them. Well, that is not true about everything, some of these items I keep out of obligation, they were a gift and I feel like I should keep them. Continue reading
The last couple of years have seen some pretty rough times for “Christians”. Mainly because there are a lot of people who claim to be, but yet their actions show anything but Christianity. Continue reading
and I have had just about all the bliss I can take. Continue reading
I signed up to be part of this nationwide women’s dietary study, and all of that starts for me on Monday. I did this because I know I need to make changes in order to get healthier, and accountability might help me stick with it. I also know that for at least the first couple of weeks, I will want to quit. I am not looking forward to the next couple of weeks, I dread them. However, I do look forward to them happening and getting through it. I just have to stay strong…something I do not have a good track record for doing. Continue reading
Do you ever play the ‘what if’ game? I did that for many years, and I reached a point, not too long ago, where I let many of my what ifs go. I talk about moving on and moving forward, but looking back, talk is about the only thing that has happened. Okay, that is not entirely true, I have made some progress…I have let go of the constant thought that I still needed to get a college degree. It was something I believed was going to happen since I was six years old, but it has not and that is okay. I have let go of the believe that I should be living in a big city, and in all honesty, I am now okay with that as well. Continue reading
I am an animal lover, have been my entire life. I’m not talking about just cats and dogs, I’m talking Noah’s Ark. I grew up wanting to be a Zoologist, and until I was 17 and realized I would have to euthanize some, it was my plan; fast forward a lifetime later, I still would happily run an animal sanctuary, if I had the money, which I do not.

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
My husband brought up the concept of autonomous cars, and for reasons I cannot explain, I became angry. The actual idea that the auto insurance companies could make it to where only those with a lot of money, will be able to afford the insurance required to drive a car. That one day, the majority of the cars, on the road, will not have drivers, but will be ran by an automated system, for some reason upsets me. Continue reading
