Question- Is your tribe for all days, or just sunny days? Life happens and some days suck. There are times my tribe has had to shake me and aske me “what the hell are you doing Ceejay?” I get mad and eventually see the light, and apologize and it is what it is. Equivalent to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Dear God- W.T.F just happened?

One thing I have always been told by Christians, is the closer you get to God, the more spiritual warfare you encounter because Satan tries to bring you down. I’m not sure if that is true or not. My life has been spiritually derailed for a few months as this point, so….. Frankly, life was […]

Why am I doing this to myself?

Why am I doing this to myself?

Its 10 o’clock at night, and I am eating a thousand pounds of chocolate, and fully invested in the idea that I will most likely gain a lot of weight. A giant chocolate bunny that my husband gave me for Easter, and promised I would eat it in moderation, which up until this point I […]

Finding Faith

Faith is hard. Very hard and at times impossible, especially when life is going really well. Having faith is easy when it drops you to your knees, but when life is going good we forget to stay plugged in to the good Lord. This is my challenge. The other challenge is the church. I love […]

Finding peace in the middle of chaos

I am grateful for my little piece of country in the middle of the trailerhood where I find a source of simplicity when my mind is overwhelmed with complicated burdens, and nothing is in my control. Sunshine and open spaces have a positive effect on the mind, body and soul when the burdens become too […]
