Creative Dates with Yourself

It is amazing to me how just about all kids will love being creative.  Don’t believe me?  Go to a Kindergarten class with some glitter and watch them light up and make a mess and make some art!  Somewhere along the line, so many of us lose this creative spark.  I am not sure why. ...

NEDA

There are some great resources out there that I would like to highlight from time to time.  National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) is definitely one of the best resources for those impacted by eating disorders in one way or another.  Or…even if you just want to support those impacted by eating disorders. It is rich...

Accept my Flaws?

“I’m not interested in accepting my flaws.  I want to analyze why I was made to believe I had flaws in the first place.” I read this several weeks ago and wrote it down.  I am not sure who to give credit to for saying this (please enlighten me and I can update this post). ...

Waiting

I wrote this post in July of 2009 for a personal blog that I no longer maintain: It seems we are always waiting for something, huh? Right now, I am waiting for my hubby to find a full-time job. Right now, I am waiting to finish my clinical hours so I can decide if and...

Braving the Wilderness

I am a huge fan of Brené Brown…like fangirl fan.  I wrote some about this some here, but I cannot tell you just how much I look forward to anything she writes or records.  My daughter, who is in college, discovered her about a year ago and the conversation went something like this (via text): HER:  do...

What Therapy Is

I am sure you have seen the memes floating around social media that say “Shopping with my Friends is My Therapy” and “The Beach is My Therapy” and “Quilting is My Therapy.”  There are so many different variations to this and I would so often see these and feel something inside that irked me.  I...

Self-Care, Part 2

I sincerely hope you at least started a list from last week’s post.  I know it can be a struggle to come up with a list, but YOU are important enough to spend the time and effort.  With your list in hand, it’s time to get organized! If you didn’t do it when you were...
