Don’t Call Me Strong

A while back a good friend of mine paid me the compliment of calling me a strong woman. My mouth said, “Aw, well thank you,” but my brain rolled its invisible eyes & said, “Girl, don’t call me that…I am exhausted.

Oh me. Where do I even begin with this topic? Sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of un-used junk we own.

Nothing In Comparison

How incredibly beautiful this world is. Sit back & imagine it. Think of the most incredibly beautiful things you can think of.

A Heart of Gratitude

Writing has always been a kind of therapy for me. And honestly, I’ve noticed a change in myself since I started blogging- I’ve become a lot more positive. People don’t want to read negativity in a blog, we already get enough of that in our daily lives, social media, & on the news. Because of… Continue reading A Heart of Gratitude
