moving…

This is going to be my last post in this space.  I decided that a move was in order.  You can find me here now, along with a little more information about my decision to stop posting in this space.  I hope you will join me in my move.

transitioning from 9 to 10

I remember the year I turned ten vividly.  For some reason, it was a significant moment for me.  It was the year I got my ears pierced, but that was only part of it.  I remember feeling like I was so much more grown-up after that day passed. Back in January, I chose the word [...]

no more shame on me….

Just wanted to share that I have decided to join Brené Brown in the read-along she is doing on her blog. I just finished listening to the first podcast, and it was wonderful!

Throughout 2008, I lived with the word fulfill for all the things it wasn’t as much as all that it was.  I wrote about that journey here, so I won’t recap it all again.  In my reflection about my year with “fulfill,” I also announced my word for 2009.  I have decided that “embrace” is [...]

oh my god, what did I do?

A few months ago on Christine Kane’s blog, I read a post asking for volunteers to write about their word for the day.  I didn’t even hesitate; I just sent in my request to write about my journey with the word “fulfill” throughout the last year.  It was an absolute yes, so when I received [...]
