Hormones, Drama, Raw Edges, & Rambling

March 28, 2011 6 Comments

I’m really curious as to whether hormone fluctuations attract emotional drama or just magnify what’s been there all along so that it becomes glaringly, blatantly, unignorable. Really. I don’t need this. I need my brain chatter to shut up so my body can sleep at night. I need the sun to shine today and the …

Who Made Christ?

February 17, 2011 7 Comments

Who made Christ? Now there’s a loaded, cage-rattling question. I’d venture to bet the typical responses would range from “He’s always existed” to “God did” and everything in between. Now here’s my loaded, cage-rattling answer. Humans made Christ. Yep. I said that. I went there. “How dare she suggest such a thing?!,” you might indignantly …

2010: Looking Back So I Can Look Forward

December 29, 2010 10 Comments

Looking back is not something I typically do. There’s nothing a person can do to change what’s been done, and spending time dwelling on it is pretty much a waste of time. This year, however, I think it is important for me to look back at the past twelve months so that I can recognize …

What Would Jesus Say?

December 22, 2010 3 Comments

Most of us are familiar with the WWJD (what would Jesus do?) bracelets that burst on the scene a few years ago. They served a very useful purpose: To remind us to think about what Jesus’ reaction would be to a given situation. Were they effective? I don’t know. They certainly made someone a lot …

Truth and Terror

December 14, 2010 7 Comments

I am terrified to tell the truth. Not average ordinary everyday sorta truth. My truth. The truth about what I believe at this point in my life. The truth about my faith, my thoughts, and my passions.

A friend/client messaged me earlier this week asking what I had planned for her personal training session. My response? “IDK.” Yep.

Allowing

July 28, 2010 4 Comments

One of the most powerful lessons I’ve had to learn in my life is that my way isn’t necessarily the right way or the only way. Shocker, isn’t it? The other thing I’ve had to learn is that others can be right even when their right is different from my right. There is usually more …

Things have continued to progress this week as I sort through the many artifacts and memoirs found in my in-law’s home. Also continuing are the a-ha moments and the reminders of my mother-in-law’s many passions. …and the paradox of contradiction so many of her passions hold. It fascinates me that a woman who is so …
