Facing the storm

Another guest blog up on Impactwomennv.com! It’s a spin off of a blog I wrote here a while back. Hope you enjoy it and the rest of the writers over at Impact! I live in the south. Tennessee to be specific. And it storms here, if you haven’t heard. And I mean ‘STORMS’ as a verb. It’s an action word …

That just ain’t me

You’ve all heard the saying, “Curiosity killed the cat!” But I think that little ditty is due for a revision. Comparison is the real killer, wouldn’t you agree? I know that comparison is a major stumbling block for me in my life, but I’ve recently come to discover that most of the things that pull me into the comparison trap …

Guest spot

I don’t know if you guys know… but I blog. Yes, it’s true. And I don’t know if you guys know, but I am helping to found one of the coolest non-profits that you’re ever going to know about if you’re a woman. No offense to the dudes- you know I love you- but this non-profit is called Impact Women …

Attacked

Have you ever been attacked? I’m talking about the kind of attack, where you’re going about your day as if nothing is out of the ordinary, and all of the sudden someone shows up and scares you to your core.

Who are you?

I spent some time this weekend talking about, and contemplating who I am, why I’m here and what it’s all for. Of course, being a believer myself, I feel like I have a pretty good grasp on what it’s all for and I’m starting to get a sense of why I’m here. But the who am I part… That’s tricky. …

You are making an Impact…

… the question is, is it a positive or a negative one? Everyday we make choices. We decide to smile at the barista at Starbucks, or avoid eye contact. We decide to say please, thank you, excuse me, or to hold open a door for someone. We decide to be rude. We decide to be short. We decide to let …
