Notice the Small Things

So often we can get caught up in wanting big changes and getting frustrated if they don't happen right away. Sound familiar? I know I feel that way sometimes. I feel that way now where I have become hyper focused on two changes that I want for my life that just don't seem to be … Continue reading Notice the Small Things

Energy to Give

When you feel some internal unrest, you can either wallow in it and focus on those feelings or you can do something about it. For a while now I have focused on what I don't have and just hyper-focused on one area of my life, relationships. I had a nagging reminder of being single despite … Continue reading Energy to Give

The Flow

Two chemicals. Three atoms. One molecule. So many forms and characteristics. Something we take for granted each day, yet can't live without. Different physical states based on energy, different traits based on environment. This simple yet complex molecule is fascinating, life-saving, and very treasured.

They might take on slightly different orders or it might look like "dADa" but … Continue reading Dealt a Bad Hand of Cards

Life is a Gamble

Life is a gamble sometimes. The cards flip over and they might match but most times they don't. Most times you get a few that are the same but it's not enough to call it a win. The slot machines spin round and round and you get a feeling, and then are disappointed. The ball … Continue reading Life is a Gamble
