It all started with a book. The title of the book kept popping up everywhere I looked. I couldn't get away from it.

Then a friend of mine highly suggested it so I decided to give it a read. 

As the title suggests, it really did change my life. 

"The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" written by Marie Kondo is all about clutter, the affect it has on our lives and how to change it.

As sharers of this human experience, we've all encountered heartbreak. We get to share other things too, like happiness, creativity, longing, joy and anticipation, just to name a few. But heartbreak is always the real deal – it never wears a mask. When we feel it, we know it. There is no mistaking the feeling of a heart that has been broken.

Which is why we will try anything to avoid it. No...

It's summertime, which means our days may involve riding roller coasters, zip-lining, crazy big water slides, bungee jumping, canyoning, or another heart racing activity.

The anticipation, holding on for dear life, then the final exhale when it's all over - it's exhilarating and fun.

Turning what we desire into something we actually do requires some alchemy. And it ain't easy, which is w...

Hi Beautiful,
I’m a sucker for stories where the narrator explains how they worked in a job they hated, but felt tethered to it because of money, responsibility and fear, then somehow managed to gain the courage and confidence to quit and start a new life doing what they love.

They speak of fear and over...

Maybe it's the lack of sun in Texas over the past month, but the vampires have been out in full force lately. 

Not Dracula or the teens with six pack abs from Twilight, I'm referring to the vampires that you and I come in contact with more often than we realize. These vampires don't suck your blood, they prefer to take your energy instead.

Emotional vampires - they come in and leave you feeling drain...

Hey you, the kind reader I write to every week, I have to admit, this blog post almost didn't happen.
I've been in my head too much lately. 
It started with my daughter going into the hospital - emergency appendectomy. Although I guess all appendectomies are emergencies; taking an appendix out isn't really a part of anyone's general plan. 
Then my mom was suddenly in the hospital having a pace ma...
