Fly, Fly Away…

Five Minute Friday is upon us again, and this is where I’d love to put some clever remark about time going so quickly- especially with the writing prompt for today! The truth is that, for me, this week has seemed to last forever… If this is your first time seeing a Five Minute Friday post, our lovely host Kate gives […]

Wednesday ‘podging…

Once again, my midweek has me teaming up with some super cool peeps over at From this Side of the Pond! 1.Describe your 30’s in one sentence. The decade filled with wall-to-wall unpredictability and change. 2. Is it harder for you to exercise or eat healthy? Exercise! I have a chronic illness which makes it tough. One of those catch-22 things […]

Good Friday morning! I am once again joining up with Kate and the Five Minute Friday crew. In case you’re new, the way it works is that we get a word, set a time for five minutes and see what happens… So, here we go! ~ So many people feel that being a writer is another form of being a […]

What Spring has brought with her…

When I signed up to Let Go, this year, I really had no idea of the things that would be asked of me. I would say that, while this is probably a truth that has applied to all of my WOtY’s, this year has all at once stung incredibly and also been so restorative. Now, it is June. We are at a half way point and I find myself reflecting on this journey. Here in Michigan we’ve had about eleven seconds of true spring, following the twenty years of winter… (While you may be learning that I can sometimes exaggerate, this is something I’ve known for a good, long while.) Spring is nearly out the door, making way for Summer, and I am reflecting along with my favorite Emily, about what Spring has shown me… The vision/dream my heart has held for so eternally long really can be mine… I’ve read all of the little memes about believing in yourself, I’ve read the books and seen the lectures. But then, at some point this Spring I finally followed through with a project that was two years, (and let’s be honest, a lifetime) in the making and opportunities/possibilities just spilled forth. It took those things happening to make me realize this vision wasn’t a fantasy, it was a grand design. It may look differently than the ways I’ve dreamed, but that just means it will be better and more suited to my […]

Pressing Pause…

Happy Friday! I am once again participating with the Five Minute Friday crew… (The way it works is, there is a word that we each spend ONLY FIVE MINUTES writing on- whatever comes to mind.) ~ I feel like I might be coming across like a broken record, repetitive… I started this little, long-awaited passion project roughly seven weeks ago and I had no idea how many things would change, in my life. I took a leap, not knowing what doors (or opportunities) would become so within my grasp. Is it possible for those dreams, which one has carried deep within their sacred places, to be owned and lived and real? In this minute it seems so… Right now, most elements of this life I live seem on the verge of changing. I’m trusting and moving forward, even though between you & I, I kind of want to hide under my covers and wait til life goes back to the quiet that it was. Not for any healthy reasons, of course, but because I am scared. Fearful of failure, fearful of success. Fearful of change, even though I know (I know this!) that all three of those things can be very positive, cathartic and vitally necessary things. I’m taking more deep breaths, these days. Intentionally pressing pause on the bits of my moment which I do control. (and accepting the rest, which I do not.) Inhaling, savoring, taking note and […]
