Mastering the art of “resting”

Heading into my third week of recovery after my bi-lateral explant surgery, I have discovered the truth about myself: I am an absolute utter and complete failure at the art of forced “resting”. Now it’s silly because after sixteen prior surgeries, I understand the importance of physical rest in surgical recovery. Rest equals healing. Healing equals getting back to life sooner than later. But rest, … Continue reading Mastering the art of “resting”

It’s a strange thing when life hands you curve balls you think you can handle and then come to find out that no matter the fortress of positivity you have built around yourself; no matter how much you have stacked the deck in favor of hope verses despair, that sometimes, you just have to give in to the fact that you are human and your … Continue reading Bringing Back Me

Moving your life story from “I Can’t” to “I Can Do It!”

I sat in the car for a few moments before starting the engine, gathering my thoughts. I could literally feel my mind racing, like it actually had a heart beat and I started to laugh.

Rejoice and be Glad!

One of my favorite verses from the bible is from Psalm 118:24:  This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. In my humble opinion, the implications of this verse are powerful, less in the literally interpretation of creation and more in the subtext of opportunity…human opportunity. As the sun rises and sets, we are given another chance … Continue reading Rejoice and be Glad!

The Pull of Negativity

Do you ever have one of those days where life is cruising along on positive speed and then for some reason, you feel the pull of negativity and just like that, your day has gone from milestone to millstone?

Steps to avoiding the rabbit hole of negativity

I am convinced that quickest way to slide down the rabbit hole of negativity is to allow yourself to become a complacent participant in life by cutting off your connectivity with others. Look, I get it, maybe you are going through cancer treatment or other health issues, or you are dealing with an unexpected financial burden, or maybe a break-up, death of a loved one, … Continue reading Steps to avoiding the rabbit hole of negativity
