Motivation.

What keeps you motivated? I remember grappling with this question over a period of time- maybe ten years. I was so discouraged with myself. I couldn’t remain motivated. But I was also depressed, in a long marriage that had run its course, and I need a new take on life. With motivation, it seemed as…

Full Circle Moment.

Still writing about my changes and my transitions with my move to New York… Sometimes I have to be patient with myself…and it requires yielding without protesting . There’s a word for it. It’s called acquiescing . I mean, that’s what you do when your soul fights ( that’s a strong word, yet an accurate…

Surrender.

Today, I laid on my Mama’s & Daddy’s living room floor in full surrender and almost fell asleep. My soul felt good lying there, just thinking about the new life I was now creating. It’s only been a few days. Sometimes some of the most beautiful sights and experiences can happen in some of the…

Wow!

New beginnings happen every day. Sometimes they happen by choice. Oftentimes, they happen of our own volition and personal priorities. I was thinking today about how I got here to where I am , today.

My Friends Are One of A Kind..

One of a kind. Friends are few and far between, & are hard to find. Above my friend Meg, and she’s pregnant and ready to deliver her child! (We just celebrated her little one is coming really soon!) It’s been real living in Tulsa Ok. We are headed to Rochester , N.Y. after nine years…

Today I caught a plane. I remember when I used to be so excited to get in planes and travel . I almost even took a job once that allowed me to travel, the time just wasn’t right. I had just gotten married and I was not willing to take the risk of losing my…

Where I Find Rest.

I have found rest in some of the smallest uncozy spaces . And then when I see this frustrated, restless self of mine, I regroup. My rest often hides in spaces I haven’t been in a while . I am finding rest in books. Books titled “Present Over Perfect.” I’m learning here, in the book…

Happy Fourth!

Happy Fourth! In this crazy world where freedoms seem to be changing and lessening, and life seems to be challenged on every side, don’t neglect yourself in practicing necessary freedoms – like finding joy in nature dancing to awesome music; cherishing family and loved ones- and just watching fireworks . Breathe. Laugh. Spark Joy. Spend…

Yesterday.

Yesterday I had a meaningful conversation with my Pastor, Pastor Mike, Pastor of Transformation Church, in Tulsa Oklahoma. Today’s post is just giving honor where honor is due. Pastor Mike and I have attended the same church for several years; even before he became pastor . His ability to rally up youth and bring them…
