YOU are Amazing!! And don’t you forget it!

You ARE amazing!! I finally began to believe that about myself after a few days of saying it out loud in front of the mirror. The year was 2008. For most of my life I'd felt "less-than" so it took a bit of making a firm choice and perseverance to follow this program.   I'd… Continue reading YOU are Amazing!! And don’t you forget it!

Write Your Own Script, My Dear

So really. Why would you follow in the exact footprints of someone else? They do not have YOUR unique qualities, gifts, abilities, and desires, and you don't have theirs.

Perhaps to some degree, if they are… Continue reading Write Your Own Script, My Dear

I’m An Overcomer

There are a bunch of things pressing in on me and my brain is in a tizzy (southern expression for going crazy).    *I'm trying to get a seat belt installed before heading south. I had to cut it because my son became… Continue reading I’m a Warrior, Not A Worrier!
