Ignoring Our Emotions Is Killing Us, part 1

“Feelings won’t kill you. Running away from them will.” Unknown It wasn’t until I attended a “Heal Your Inner Child” workshop that I got a hint about how much energy and time I spent trying to escape my emotions. I was on the run and looking over my shoulder at something I feared may catch up to me. I just couldn’t identify the “something.”...

Happy Birthday, Mom. It’s okay to cry.

“Jesus wept.” John 11:35 If Mom were still around, she would have turned 91 today. This is my first time sending her birthday wishes since she died in 2013; my first blog post dedicated to her.

Down the Drain with Praise and Criticism

“Praise and criticism go down the same drain.” Betty H. I cut my own hair and kept its natural color ever since I grayed early and changed to a short hairstyle. No one cut it like I wanted, so I gave up on finding a stylist and bought a set of clippers. I’ve never colored because I imagined it turning the shade of a carrot. Family, friends,...
