Choices

A friend of mine readily admits some of her fondest memories involve watching “Pretty Little Liars” with her grandmother. Her nana. Nana told me she had no interest in the program, but it was a way to spend time with her youngest grandchild on a regular basis. Despite her lack of concern for the fate of the various characters, she could handily talk through … Read More Choices

illogical things are happening everyday

A college dropout – me? The National Merit Scholar, the one who dreamed about higher education? That didn’t make any sense. Yet the first go-around, that’s what happened. I took on too much and burned out. Few close to me disputed the wisdom of my choice, but all agreed I should try again when I was ready. It took three years to be ready, … Read More illogical things are happening everyday

Words in the Wind

Today, while in the ladies room, I heard two co-workers talking. One was crying. “I told her I got back together with him because I married him,” she sobbed. “I thought maybe he’d changed.” Well, you can guess the rest of the story. He hasn’t changed. “I know I’m a good person. I’m doing things I don’t want to do because of him.” As … Read More Words in the Wind

Let’s do that!” We should have, and I had a split second to decide. There was no law, no rule really, against … Read More Rules, Respect, and Giving a Rip

What My Soul Knows

I have an important decision to make…and what I’m thinking of doing doesn’t feel right. I won’t do it, no matter how logical may seem. I’ve learned my gut, my soul, has valuable things to say. It’s almost as if logic and reasoning is the lazy way out sometimes, although I’ll never dismiss the necessity to reason through a life-changing or costly choice. Sometimes, … Read More What My Soul Knows

Better Choices, or, Better to Have Choices

Today, I’m grateful for CHOICES. One of my blogging buddies, Deb, has a daily grateful post. It’s encouraging to read all she is grateful for, and while I don’t plan to copy her idea on a daily basis, today I’m saying, loud and clear, I’m grateful for all the choices I have in my life. I can choose when I wake up in the … Read More Better Choices, or, Better to Have Choices

It All Adds Up the Same

I’ve spent some time, not a lot, but some, imagining what my life would be like now if I’d made different decisions. It happens most often at night, when I’m alone and not much is on TV, none of the books I have appeal to me and I simply cannot play one more game of solitaire on my phone. I sit and ponder. What makes … Read More It All Adds Up the Same
