Social Psychology - You, but definitely not me.

Sick sick sick. Ugh. So sick that I couldn’t muster the strength to write the Friday post, which induced shame for not fulfilling my commitments. Which incited guilt about “taking it easy” and “not pushing too hard,” which inspired exhaustion and led me to sleeping on the couch all day. Being a human is very […]

Fear and Finances: Change vs. Shifts

Not my image!

I’m currently in the middle of a new 4th step and am once again bewildered by the fears that have come up. The first time around, I wrote them out and many of them were so irrational that I had to let them go. Of course, many of those irrational fears still loom above my […]

“Even After All this time The Sun never says to the Earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens With a love like that, It lights the whole sky.” A quote by the Sufi poet, Hafiz, from a friend (many thanks for this day opener). The day began with a friend and a text message. Yesterday […]

Maybe be a UCLA student?” An incredible question from Bubbha the Texas Man, and an incredible prompt for the day and the end of summer. What would have happened had […]

Commitment

This picture is totally unrelated to the blog.

I need to make a solid commitment to and at this blog. Just like I bring the literature in one of my women’s meetings each week, it’s important that I begin updating this space regularly.

(It's not me haha but maybe one day!)

“If you bring out what is in you, what you bring out will save you. If you fail to bring out what is inside you, what you fail to bring out will destroy you.” from the Gnostic Gospel of St. Thomas via Brendan (many thanks for this…) The day begins with coffee and a swivel […]
