It Only Matters As Much As You Let It

Fooled be not-money will never learn the lessons for you. It is up to YOU to learn them. How much you learn depends on your effort and determination. The difference maker is tenacity and passion and desire and consistency, not money.

What’s Your Currency?

We are so collectively distracted by getting and going, and having, and showing that we are not present enough to witness each other as we are learning, and loving, and growing.

The Synergy of Our Brokenness

Not too long ago we were gathered at the home of my cousin when the election came up. Now, I come from a large, loud and proud Irish family. I have one aunt in particular who is extremely passionate about politics. She is smart and knows what she is talking about. She has strong opinionsContinue reading “The Synergy of Our Brokenness”

Magic Matters 

Did you know that October is ADHD Awareness Month? I never knew either. I actually can not believe I have spent most of my life knowing as little as I do about the struggles I face.

It’s Not You. Really! It’s Me…

I’ve been in the process of a nasty break-up with my old self. I have spent most of my life existing somewhere between sad and angry. Don’t get me wrong, I have been happy too. But my disposition has always been more of a “resting bitch face” if you know what I mean. Like IContinue reading “It’s Not You. Really! It’s Me…”

Good Grief!

In my 40 young years I have loved often and without hesitation. Sadly, I have also lost parts of my inner tribe. You know the people who collectively form your world? There are usually only a few. I have been blessed with 7. My parents, my brother, my Abby, my husband, and my two sons.Continue reading “Good Grief!”
