About Me

Thanks for checking in. We all know life can be EXTREMELY complicated. I blog about recognizing and removing the barriers that sabotage our living well. 

- Nobody had perfect parents, so we all have issues.
- We struggle to keep up with work, personal goals, staying healthy, and all kinds of relationships.
- Our minds are busy, and they seem to often work against us.
- At the end of many days, we're disappointed about what didn't get done, how we failed, what we should have done.

So I blog about increasing personal awareness and finding balance so we can cut ourselves some slack. Let's stay grounded as we move forward in manageable steps. Perspective is everything, and I try to see around the corners so we can leverage what we've already got into more of what we want.

Follow me and give me feedback. You inspire me, and I'll try to inspire you.

change is not always necessary

I love this because I need to enjoy some things just as they are. Some things don't need changing. Part of our stress comes from the need to change things all the time. Fashion changes. Makeup changes. Technology changes. Rules at our jobs change. Change is the constant. Sometimes we balk because things change for no apparent reason. I used to believe in the "if it's not broke, don't fix it," but that no longer applies in our society.

So this picture reminds me that just because change is almost always a focus of our lives, we can still accept some things as they are--raw and real and not reframed to fit somebody's imagination. Imagination is great, but we need the wild and untamed to remember that life is already beautiful and powerful-- without our interference.
