Pushing through the pain

I had no physical therapy today, which meant therapy at home today. No one to blame today but myself, but you know what they say, no pain, no gain. I got goals baby! Not gonna lie, the rain we have been having has my fibromyalgia flared up, but nothing new there, is what it is. […]

So you want to date a truck driver???

Okay, so you randomly meet a dude and find out he’s a truck driver. I’m gonna tell ya, there is some shit you need to know before you start this journey or it isn’t going to work with y’all, because it isn’t easy. I’m not talking about in town truck drivers who are home every […]

Focusing on the Ability

Focusing on the Ability

Life is to short to focus on what you can’t do. Focus on what you can do. Don’t let your diagnosis define you.

You are worthy

Grab some coffee. Let’s have a heart to heart. Some time not that long ago, something was said to me that was heartbreaking and shattered my world to the point of feeling unworthy and left me not knowing how to come back from it. I had heard those words before, and similar words to them […]

Be still, and listen

I’m in a season of stillness. I’m watching, and listening to those around me. I’m decluttering my life of things, negativity and people. Things are easy to get rid of. I’m not a materialistic person, and truth be told, I’ve never owned much. I’m a rather simple person and too much just overwhelms me and […]

Movie Review: I can only Imagine (Don’t read if you don’t want spoilers)

This movie “I Can Only Imagine,” has been heavy in my heart since I watched it a few weeks ago. So many people raved about this movie, I finally broke down and watched it. I am not a person who sits around and watches TV. I liked the movie, but was very disappointed. Knowing it […]

First day of school in the trailerhood

No backpacks to be packed, no excitement over new clothes, and butterfly bellies don’t disturb the sleep, but at last, it’s time to begin school in the trailerhood. Our morning started off with the typical bustle of getting the Big Bear off to the truck, which this week he’s getting a change of scenery and […]

Positively in control

Lately here, I stepped away from Facebook. I needed to step away from some dramatic things and just regain some focus. In life, some people will drain your happiness, some intentional, some not. I have shut the door on several friendships because they were not good for me. Negative people affect me mentally and physically. […]

Happiness

What makes you truly happy? Happiness to me is sitting in solidarity with a cup of coffee and reading a good book. Its expanding my mind with deep intellectual conversations. It’s being who I am with no censors, and no walls. It’s complete honesty without fear of how someone reacts. It’s being surrounded by people […]

What Not to say to a truck drivers wife.

If I had a dollar for every time I was asked one of these questions, I would be a very rich woman. Honest curiosity is not a bad thing, but the judgmental questions, and nasty questions get hard. Some questions are just down right hurtful. Is your husband on the road? He’s always on the […]

Giving up..

I’m slowly giving up on a lot of things, and just giving it to God. I can’t help but feel like I am the needle skipping around on broken records. Things feel the same, it’s just a different record. Time to give it to God and let Him handle it. I’m throwing my hands up […]

You got this!

Growing up, I worked alongside my grandfather who like Jesus, was a carpenter. (There is debate on this for some, but so not going there.) My grandfather taught me a lot of skills that have been useful throughout my life. So this week, I am in the process of redoing my living room. It’s a […]

What it means to have a tribe..

The saying “Find your tribe, love them hard.” Is the best advice a mother can teach her daughter. So many girls grow up thinking it’s okay to attack each other rather than encourage. I don’t know if it’s hormones or what, but girls, find your tribe. It’s not catty behavior looking for the “dirt”, so […]

Last year of my 30’s- Happy birthday to me

Happy Birthday to me! I can’t believe I am turning 39. I don’t feel “old” and yet, I remember turning 21 and thinking my mom was ancient and she was only 39. Yikes! Is that how my kids view me? I mean, hundreds of articles sweep the internet on what to do before 40, as […]

The hard boiled egg and I

There is a story that boiling water either softens the potato or hardens the egg. Well, I have become the egg. I’ve had my share of hardships over the last 2 years, and somehow I let it harden me into someone I don’t like. I don’t like who I have become. In fact, when I […]

Scoop of Jesus, dash of Cymbalta, and a sprinkle of simplicity

Somethings changing. I have a enough worries to justify feeling stressed, but I am beginning to feel a sense of peace. The peace feels unsettling. I have been angry for a while, which has affected every aspect of my life. A storm has been brewing within me and while I tried to hold it down, […]

The way to a woman’s heart

It’s time for a cup of coffee and some hard talk. It’s true is women are semi-emotional and almost everything in our life is connected. Not all women, but most and I’m about to generalize here. Most women feel it’s their job to turn a house into a home. If the husband is unhappy with […]

To all the fluffy girls

To all the fluffy girls

It’s 7am, and you are jumping out of the shower, stepping in the scale only to berate yourself in front of the mirror (for the millionth time this week), because the scale didn’t reflect the salads you’ve been gagging down when you really wanted the pizza, chocolate or burgers. More self hatred follows when you […]

Encounter with a Ho

Encounter with a Ho

Every one has heard at one point that so and so is a ho, right? I mean we have all heard that term, usually behind someone’s back. Rarely, do you meet someone who proudly proclaims they are a “Ho.” Anyways, that’s not the point. I already had my mind made up what she would be […]
