What is Addiction … ?

THIS is such a critical shift in perspective! These three little minutes may alter the way you see it.  And when we ‘see’ the problem with new eyes … the solution looks very different than our current approach.

I’m committed to being part of the solution, Karen

    Thank you, Karen, for posting that. Brené Brown’s new book, Rising Strong, is about “the pain” … recognizing it, reckoning, and recovering. First step is simply being able to recognize when we have been hijacked by emotions. The physical and mental signs. Most people just get washed away by the pain. Recognizing is such a powerful tool! And like the video said … COMPASSION is a vital element to the process. Seeking out those who have it and learning to have it for ourselves. I, too, am committed to the solution!

      Thanks for sharing more about Brene’s new book Barbie! I wasn’t sure what it was about so you’ve inspired my interest in getting it! And yes … compassion … a powerful answer to whatever the question might be! 💛

    Thank you, Karen. And I ditto Coach Barbie! I, too, and committed to the solution and very excited about Brené Brown’s new research and book. I can still hear Debbie Ford’s voice [and can hear it any time in The Shadow Effect] “what you can’t be with won’t let you be”.

My Tributes: Better Because of You ...

Teresa – A Fond Tribute to your Spectacular Sparkle and Gregarious Grit!

The last time I saw her was a few years back.  We had been waiting in line for quite some time and were just being seated at our table at the IHOP that had recently opened in Lethbridge. Teresa had already eaten and was just leaving … but after enjoying one of her big warm […]

The Days are So Much Better when they Start With a Smile …

My husband has been working out of the town for the last couple of weeks. He is an oilfield consultant and heavy equipment operator.  He loves his job.  Sometimes I tease that he gets paid to play in the dirt! He doesn’t just move dirt … he creates works of art.   His approach to his construction […]

Dwayne and Cheryl … So Many Moments Were So Much Better Because of You!

You came to mind yesterday.  Again.  I can’t even begin to tell you how often I think of the times we shared in that little town.  I’ll never forget the day you moved in … across the street on the other corner … kitty corner to our house.  Your kids found our kids outside and […]

[GUEST POST]: Township Environment

Originally posted on Iizidima:
Knysna township There are few days when we are not reminded that there is plenty to be thankful for in life. Given what we do in South Africa, we would need to be blind, in a physical and emotional sense, to not experience this sentiment. The living conditions and depth of poverty…

A Precious Penny …

You know the old saying … ‘a penny for your thoughts’?  Well, I’d like to switch it up  and offer my ‘thoughts about a penny’.  A very precious Penny.  I’m not even sure how many years we’ve been doing it, but it’s become a very important tradition for us to sit and sip a little coffee together before the hustle and bustle of our […]
