Reflections – Year 37 Day 134

So, I had this great idea…and did it once. Ha! So, typical. But, if LIFE is trying to teach me anything these days, it’s persistence. And so, I persist… Things I’m Proud Of I had the opportunity to talk with the Media Class at Burlington Christian Academy this afternoon. Talking with the 8th graders at BCA (I’ve been invited now for a few semesters) always teaches me something – and I appreciate their feedback…yes, even their sassy comments. It’s always an interesting mix – kids who are HUGE consumers of social media and kids who don’t really pay it...

Reflections – Year 37 Day 105

Trying something new on the blog. A reflections kind of post. I’ve got a prayers category (which is long overdue for a good dusting off) and I’ll be setting up an affirmations category (which I’ve learned – at least for me – requires a different kind of writing and mindspace)…and there is already The Daily Race category (which is meant to be a less formal review of an event during the day), but what I dreamt up this evening doesn’t really fit any of those things just right…though in some ways, it encompasses them all. I’m starting off with...

2018 Love Letters: Two

I am so incredibly sorry. I don’t even know exactly how to tell you how incredibly sorry I am… Being completely honest, I’m still searching for how to explain this properly. — Completely honest. Ironic that those should be the words that surface as I try to offer you a sincere apology.

Not you.” — I can’t say I didn’t know, because I did. But I didn’t know how...

No Shame in My Jammie Game

It dawned on me that I might should be ashamed for still being in my jammies… Eh. Nah. It was only a moment. And then I was over it. I conquered my world today…all up in my jammies. ALL. DAY. And, it was a good day. For the record, I don’t always stay in my jammies all day long. There are some days I have to see clients… …and I’ll dress up for them. By dress up, what I mean to say is, I’ll throw on a pair of jeans and some sneaks. /cackles/ Y’all, relax. I’ve worked corporate....

Reminding DATC Session 18 Students of the Light Within

I’ve spoken about my role at DATC before. You can read about it here. This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to speak with the group of students from Session 18. I am one lucky duck. I try to be as thankful as possible in order to be worthy of all the luckiness that comes my way. Getting a chance to work with Dr. Karen Barwick, Program Director of Dental Assistant Training Centers, Inc., is one of those things I am thankful for – it’s a lucky thing, a bright light. We’re 8+ years on this shared professional road,...
