Getting Your Own Life While Loving the People In It

I see you…

the overwhelmed daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother who longs to have your turn at life, unearth and live your purpose, and feel alive and in love instead of just busy.

And I write for you.

I share stories about getting your own life while loving the people in it, which means we

I’m inspired by the words of 20th century thought leader Howard Thurman,

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

I hope you’ll hang around, sign up for my blog posts and newsletter, and share your thoughts so we’ll learn from each other.

In This Together,

Are You So Nice that You’re Unkind?

“In the world where you can be anything, be kind.” Unknown My husband John and I came into our marriage with very different ways to solve a problem, and we both thought our way was the kind one. I’m honest. I say whatever comes to mind that I think might help him understand why I’m upset. I figured he wanted to hear what I had to say because I...
