Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Forgiveness One of the most misunderstood concepts is forgiveness. People think if they forgive that they will be condoning another who has hurt them in some fashion. I have found that most people who hurt us don’t care enough to even think about our feelings. As cold as that sounds, it is true. When we forgive, we let go of their actions and take ownership of our lives. The act allows us to release the angst that we carry about a situation entirely outside of our control. When... Read More

W.A.I.T.

W.A.I.T.

W.A.I.T. I am offering you an acronym to remind us all to pause before we speak and ask, "Why Am I Talking?". Today it could be beneficial for us all to take a breath and listen BEFORE WE SPEAK. We hear people saying that we are all in the same boat when it comes to the pandemic or the weather craziness, but that could not be farther from the truth. We may all in the same storm, but our boats are vastly different. Some are in a dingy, while others are in a luxury suite on an ocean liner.... Read More

President's Day

President's Day

President’s Day I think it is pretty ironic that it is President’s Day weekend, with the verdict for the Impeachment trial of President Donald Trump occurring. Today, we honor two of our country’s great presidents while treason to our democracy remains unpunished. It is incredible that politics, as usual, takes precedence over truth. How can our senators stand up and vote not guilty and in the next breath say that the man did indeed incite the riot that resulted in five dead? Their... Read More

The Game

The Game

The annual day that our country devotes to Football has arrived. Even amid a pandemic, we pay tribute to our favorite National Sporting Event. It is about the game, plays, players for many, but it is about the spectacle and the commercials for the vast majority of us. No matter what you love about Super Bowl Sunday, it is time to recognize how we all play in life. I like alliteration to quickly and easily remember things, so here are my top five recommendations for a winning formula. ... Read More

Friendship

Friendship

During the pandemic, one of the most glaring holes in my life has been losing contact with friends. Being in isolation, we must work extra hard to maintain relationships because interacting does not happen accidentally. It must be an intention of high priority, or it does not occur. We have to cultivate the factors that make any relationship strong: Time, Communication, Honesty, and Loyalty. Time! I miss the standing lunch and dinner dates that I had marked on my calendar. Monthly... Read More

Dream

Dream

Today is Martin Luther King Day and a great day to talk about dreaming. Dr. King articulated so well the ideas and possibilities for a race and a nation. It is beyond sad that his life ended before he could witness the realization of his dreams. I grew up in the sixties. I am part of the generation who witnessed the brave souls who took steps to make Dr. King’s dream a reality. I have met the first black girl who attended an all-white Gainsville FL High School for her Senior Year 1964-65.... Read More

Perseverance

Perseverance

I choose a word, or sometimes it chooses me as my theme for the year! In 2021 mine is perseverance. With the highs and lows over two years, I need to focus on putting one foot in front of the other. As much as I would like to say that I was thriving through all the turmoil of Gary’s heart issues in 2019 that resulted in him spending eighty days in the hospital and the pandemic in 2020, I was NOT! I have to admit that some days, I clung to hope like a blanket and wanted to close my eyes and... Read More

Soul

Soul

I watched the new Disney movie, Soul , this week. As is usually the case with Disney/Pixar collaborations, there is so much food for thought underneath the loveable characters and storyline. For any of us who look at life for lessons, there are plenty there. The main character, Joe, is excited about finally getting his BIG break playing jazz piano with a well-known quartet. He is on his way home and dies accidentally due to his carelessness. He obviously, is not ready to go on to the great... Read More

Gifts

Gifts

Everyone has particular talents or gifts that make them who they are. When we understand what our giftedness is, we are half-way home in the success phenomena. Those who struggle to find their groove waste time and resources, developing themselves into the best they can be. Self- analysis is as old as time itself. The bible described the Gifts of the Spirit that were temporal and spiritual. The Greeks and Romans identified talents they considered crucial to the human psyche, and Shakespeare... Read More

The List

The List

Yesterday my husband asked me for my Christmas List. I thought about it and realized there is not a single “PHYSICAL THING” I want. Instead, this year has shown me the stuff I want in my life that is missing is time with friends and family. We can never replace or recreate the moments of comfort, grief, joy, and sadness that went unshared. I sincerely hope that we have learned to prioritize our time differently and establish who and what matters to us. The essence of 2020 was solation from... Read More

Recipes

Recipes

Getting ready for the Holidays, most of us are in the kitchen more than usual. Whether we are making traditional favorites or trying something new, we rely on a recipe. The creative chefs out there can and do substitute ingredients or completely break free to try new things, but most of us like having these guidelines. Even when I am making something that I have made FIFTY times, I need to look back and refresh my mind or forget a step or a key ingredient. We can use the lessons learned in... Read More

Priorities

Priorities

The buzz word for 2020 is pivot! Realigning to accomplish has been required for most of the world’s population. As we near the end of this year of change, it is good to re-evaluate and see if what once was a priority still ranks high! Do you need to step away and do some soul searching? If you asked several intimate friends and family, could they accurately give your top two priorities? Could YOU? The year has been chock full of every possible distraction, so it might be time to hunker... Read More
