Our Worst Enemy

Anyone who lives on this Earth will eventually have moments of regrets. Embarrassing memories that make us regret our decisions at the moment. And to top it off, these memories wait until the room is silent before creeping into our thoughts. They prey on our emotions as we torment ourselves for the decisions made. “How…

Sunshine Blogger Award

This is outside of my norm. So please bear with me as I dance my way through this. 🙂 I would like to take the time to thank Oblivious Gods for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Yes, it’s not an official award. It’s a chance for bloggers to give kudos to each other….

Rethinking Black Friday

Yesterday we paused to give thanks for the blessings in our lives. With a bountiful spirit of joy, we celebrated with a grateful — HOLD THE PHONE! Its black Friday, you all. Time to spend spend spend! Get in early and save. We’ve waited all year for this! It’s is going to be the best…

Eye 2 Eye

It’s OK not to see eye to eye.Though some humans may think on similar terms as others, no two think alike. Our perspective makes us unique. With this in mind, it is an excellent time to remember disagreements are nothing more than a view from a different angle. Wisdom conveys that a room full of…

And The Race Is On

In the metaphorical race we call life, I stopped running. The herd left me behind. My pace became comfortable, and I enjoyed the scenery, smell, and sounds around me. In a strange twist of fate, I noticed the other runners never left my field of view no matter how fast or far they ran. From…

Eating An Elephant

In the aftermath of a hurricane, a man once lost everything: his house, barn, sheds, and livestock. His property laid covered with debris to the point the ground was not visible. A local news-reporter was out surveying the damage when he spotted the middle-aged man staring. He asked the man how he was going to…

Lack-luster Superiors

Superior: to be higher in station, rank, or degree. A humble beginning fades from our eyes as we climb the corporate ladder. Not only have we earned the respect of others, we demand it. Love us, fear us; either way, you will do as we say. We are in charge. We will tell you what…

Who Is In Our Mirror

Our eyes open to greet another day. Not everyone is as lucky. As we look at the one in the mirror, we allow negativity to flow from our tongues in a river of disdain. Curse the morning aches, the bills that drive us to break, and curse the fools around us. How fortunate we are…

We Are Happiness

From across the room, a distant heart feels the warmth of a humble smile. Dopamine and serotonin create a sense of euphoria. A never-ending smile will not prove as beneficial as an occasional upturn of our dimples. Can our cerebral reactions create a lasting happiness? In a word, no. Happiness outlasts our chemical bliss. We…

Bad Moments

Every ounce of pain creates an emotional reflex. I am shaped, not by the pain but, by my reaction. I am in control of who I am. Some will cast a judgemental eye. Those are the ones still learning. Let them be and move on. My trials and tribulations are moments of strength training. With…
