Fear is a Liar

Fear is a Liar

On a tip from someone I trust on movie suggestions, I stopped at the ole’ Redbox this past Saturday morning, and picked up After Earth. It’s Sci-Fi, so that gets an almost instant thumbs up from me, and the husband digs it too, so after putting the little...

God Will Not Have His Work Made Manifest By Cowards.

God Will Not Have His Work Made Manifest By Cowards.

If there is one thing I believe with every fiber in my being, it’s that each and every one of us is on this earth for a reason. The point of life is figuring out what that purpose is. And obviously we each have more than one – since I am sure that part of...

Life Happens the Way It’s Supposed to Happen.

Life Happens the Way It’s Supposed to Happen.

Every day things happen. Good things. Shitty things. Sometimes, just things. The combination of these things are what make life beautiful and unpredictable and one giant adventure. I mentioned in my last blog that in one of the 300 times I’ve watched Star Trek:...

Guess what… I messed up.

Guess what… I messed up.

Lately, I’ve felt like I’ve been floating. Like I’m not giving anything that I do 100% of my time or attention. Okay, that’s not just a feeling, it’s a fact. I half do relationships. I half do my work. I half do my playtime. I half do my...

Life Is Too Short To Wait.

Life Is Too Short To Wait.

I’m not a patient person. There I said it. I don’t read directions, and I don’t wait for instructions. I don’t always think before I speak. And I often jump to conclusions. I will admit that I often get into trouble because of this. Not like...

The Climb

The Climb

Do you watch Game of Thrones? If you don’t, you should. Even if you haven’t read the books, the show is stellar. In the I-can-hardly-wait-a-week-to-watch-the-next-episode kind of way. Two weeks ago, the episode was titled The Climb, which is also the title...

I believe in you, whether you believe in yourself or not.

I believe in you, whether you believe in yourself or not.

So, I just got back from a trip. A big trip. No, a huge trip. Nine days. Six Countries. Crossed off multiple things on my “places to see before I die” list. And the trip was all thanks to the amazing Gry Sinding. The original point of the trip was to...

The Saddest Thing in Life Is Wasted Talent

The Saddest Thing in Life Is Wasted Talent

Natural aptitude or skill. Hmmm. There was a time when I was sure I had none of those. I was not right. I do have talents. And you do too. Whether you are a Bible reader or not, you’ve probably heard Jesus’ parable about the Talents. Short summary (from...

Yes, I Do Have ADHD…

Yes, I Do Have ADHD…

I didn’t have it when I was a kid. But there is no doubt in my mind I have it now. I used to joke that I have it. And then I read Here’s to Not Catching Our Hair on Fire: An Absent-Minded Tale of Life with Giftedness and Attention Deficit – Oh Look!...

No Regrets

No Regrets

The one year anniversary of my debt being paid off is swiftly approaching. Which is both mind-boggling and wonderful all at the same time. I feel like I should have written this a year ago, but maybe it wasn’t time. Maybe I wasn’t ready to say it. Maybe I...

Life’s a Journey, Not a Destination

Multitasking is a Lie.

So, for the last 6 (almost 7) years, I’ve been at this owning-your-own-business thing. And one thing I’ve always prided myself on is the ability to […]
