Sounds

As I sit, with my thoughts, the sound of birds chirping in the distance, it pierces the room with its chatter Faintly I hear the sound of the ceiling fan turning in its motion But the sound of my thoughts is at full volume, as I’m wondering, talking, conversing in my own thoughts, asking, if […]

My Happy Place

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! We are getting ready to embark on our annual summertime beach trip! We are very blessed to have several beaches within driving distance 3-5 hours depending on how far you want to travel. The car is halfway packed already with beach chairs, towels etc. I look forward […]

Feeling Alive

I think some people live this life without truly living this life. I think they get used to the day to day and get nice and cozy in their comfort zone. That could be settled into a mundane job or being confined to live in one place all your life, never trying anything new or […]

Worry No More

What is the point of worrying? Is there every really one? As the saying goes, worrying today is like borrowing trouble from tomorrow.

Getting Back Up Again

The Year of Me

I told myself when I turned 43 this past August that the upcoming year would be the year I started focusing more on myself and my well-being. Not that I will be neglecting my family or other obligations but at some point if you don’t take care of yourself you can no longer continue to […]

My word for the year

I had been thinking a lot about happiness lately. Then I took one of those silly online quizzes that’s supposed to tell you what your “word” for the upcoming year is and guess what mine was, “happiness” so I think the universe is trying to tell me something so I started delving deeper into how […]

Sometimes You Just Need a Minute..or two

Do you ever have one of those days when you just need to take a minute or two for yourself? Life has gotten to the point that you need your space, to be alone, to think, to cry, to pray, to just be. Amidst all the chaos of work, family, friends and obligations we all […]

Music Throughout My Life

I can’t remember a time when music was not part of my life. And I mean from all different genres. I don’t have a favorite because I love them all..well almost. It is amazing how a song from a particular band or artist can transplant you back to another place or moment in time. It is as if […]
