Grace Granted

“Going through things you never thought you’d go through, will only take you places you never thought you’d get to.” -Morgan Harper Nichols We go through Life logically knowing that it will throw us curveballs, however when that happens it almost feels like there is no end to our heartbreak or hardship in sight. We…

Wave after wave

Grief comes in many different forms and pertains to various aspects of life. The most common aspect of grief is when a loved one passes. But grief can also mean the loss of how things once were, a relationship or even who you used to be. Life changes when something or someone transitions from this…

Water

I always feel like God and the universe speak to me the most when the rain comes. I love the sound it makes hitting the pavement or my window, putting me in a calming state. Safely catatonic. The rain comes as a channel for living things to grow and flourish. It quenches the thirst of…

The Cure

Healing is a process that no one should rush. Even you. For so long I beat myself up for not completely healing from various experiences or traumas that I dealt with in my life. I still do. I have felt so guilty for still allowing either people or situations make feel a certain way even…

No Apologies

When the pandemic started I was an anxious wreck. I had two panic attacks, one with a 911 call, in the first 3 weeks and had the worst time sleeping. I cured that. When the mix of home schooling four kids, working from home and graduate school made me irritable and frustrated. I cured that….

Let it be

I am strong, but I am tired -Unknown I’ve been pouring from an empty cup. This past year, especially the past couple of months, have been hectic and chaotic to say the least. And although outside looking in, it’s been the “normal” hustle and bustle of everyday life. It feels as though more aspects are…

Perception

“I stopped explaining myself when I realized other people only understand from their level of perception.” -Anonymous One thing that I’ve learned is that I can’t control how much someone understands me, my life or my viewpoints. Better yet, if they understand me at all. I used to become so frustrated and irritated when I…

Don’t Expend

Eckhart Tolle stated: “When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept it. All else is madness.” Our energy drains during those times of complaining. Life throws us curve balls that sometimes we aren’t able to hit or dodge, so it is human nature that we complain because…
