Photo by David Marcu on Unsplash Yes, I stole that title; my good friend posted it on Facebook a few months ago, and it's been ricocheting around in my brain ever since I read it. The author is Theodore Roosevelt - apparently, that man had some things figured out that I've taken longer to learn. Comparison. It's insidious. [...]

Trigger Warning

Photo by Anton Scherbakov on Unsplash Christmas What?  Yes, Christmas is the word that can suddenly switch my day from ticking along smoothly to suddenly becoming one of "those days." Yes, "Christmas" and yes, just the word "Christmas." Christmas starts to pop up in discussions (or so I have noticed) in about September, and then it becomes a major theme [...]

Are You Really Alone?

Hi friend, Yesterday I was going to write the most amazing blog post - you inspired me. Why? Because I only write about what I know, and everything you said resonated with me. “I know that.” I thought to myself. “Yes, I’ve felt that way too.” I had a consoling platitude for everything you said.

September – Decision Making Time

Photo by Irina on Unsplash September. Labour Day. A day of transition (understatement). If you are a parent to school-aged children, September can be a bit much (I'm polite here). If you are separated and divorced and share parenting with a co-parent, September can be too much. It can be too many decisions, [...]

Communication – Rules for Life

By | 2017-11-03T22:45:38-07:00 November 3rd, 2017|Beginning Again, Divorce Self-Help, Self-Help|

There is usually a reason someone chooses to become an accountant and that reason is usually because numbers are so straight-forward. They are clear and concise, easy to line up, sort and deal with. They are usually associated with projects and with decisions that have very [...]

Time

I start new posts all the time.  These posts are usually about time. I say start because I often run out of time and never finish these posts I've started. Actually - my post attempts are getting less and less frequent. Why is that? I don't have time to even start posts these days. I realized [...]

Self Care – Do It.

Well, my blogging has taken a hit lately (last blog post Feb 3rd - really? It has been a long time!) Blog hiatuses are a bit of a pattern with me. Things get in the way - tax season (it just kept going this year), kids, summer (Kits Pool, biking and hiking!) and life... In the [...]
