Sell what you got…

June 12, 2018

 

I am celebrating my 12 year anniversary with DaySpring this week. In fact, it’s my golden anniversary, 12 years on June 12th! These 12 years have been an amazing adventure. An adventure because of what preceded those 12 years…19 years of not being in the workforce.  19 years of being a stay at home mom.

February of 1987, at age 24, expecting my first child, I exited the workforce.  I left the workforce where business was tracked on green sheet ledgers, communication came through a desk phone, summoning came through an intercom on that desk phone, and all strategies, plans, and follow-ups were handled in meetings (with real live people and no screens).  Our entire buying department had one computer station with Lotus 1-2-3, (spoiler alert, Lotus 1-2-3 is the predecessor of Excel).   Continue Reading…

A Dreamer’s Dreams…

January 5, 2018

When I hear the word ‘dreams’, I immediately go to the temporal of weird dreams that I have. Ones like there are dozens of people in the pool, but it is all green and I am trying to vacuum the algae while everyone swims, or the dream where I am introduced as the keynote speaker at a fancy gala and I had not prepared –all is well though when I get the ‘thumbs up’ from a blonde Sandra Bullock.  Was it something I ate, these make no sense.  Continue Reading…

Peaceful readings, Christmas carols and those pink and purple candles.   Oh how I longed to be chosen to the light the pink candle.  The pink candle of JOY!  My very favorite.

Belong with Meaning…

January 23, 2017

 

Belonging, it’s a curious concept and elusive for so many.  You might belong to a fitness club or gym. A sorority, a civic organization, a cause, a team, a church, or a small group. In fact you probably belong to several things, but true belonging is so much more than being associated with an entity, a cause or even a church. Continue Reading…

Rhythm of Life, part 2

October 7, 2015

FamilyIf you missed October 5th post run back and read. It’s just 700 words, I’ll wait. Done?

There is a rhythm of travel and for those who learn to go with the rhythm travel is much easier. There are many who try to go against those rhythms and they are the people in the airport who shove stewardesses (yes I’ve seen it), cuss out ticket agents (yes I’ve heard it) and make fools of themselves! And guess what the situation doesn’t change. Late flights are late, you are not going to change that. The only thing you can do is embrace the rhythm and move with it, not against it.

It is the same in life. Life has a rhythm. It has ups and downs, straight aways and curves, hills and valleys. Sometimes it is smooth sailing and sometimes you hit every red light. And guess what? You are not going to change the rhythm of life, However you can change your response to the rhythm.
