Great Expectations

Ugh. Expectations. The shoulds of life. You know what I'm talking about; I should be nicer, I should be richer, I should have a bigger house, this should be easy, this should make me happy, blah, blah, blah. This is the stuff that Catholics are made of, right? Throw in first born and damn; expectation […]

Six Things I Didn’t Learn in High School

Mama Kat always has the best prompts. Even on weeks when I don't get anything posted, they always make me think about things in a different way. This week it's what I didn't learn in high school. She specifies six, so I'll play by the rules. The list could be longer, no doubt. And it's […]

I’m So Over You: A Breakup Letter

Dear Boule, You don't mind that I call you that, do you? It just dawned on me that all this time I've been too busy pretending that no one else could see you to actually give you a name. You've been so much of an overachiever that I really can't honestly refer to you as […]

The Identity Crisis of Downward Dog

     Today is my first time linking up with Shell for PYHO (Pour Your Heart Out). I loved Erin's post, which inspired me to sit down and blog on a day that I really didn't feel like     doing much of anything at all. I went back to yoga this week. Mind you […]

How My Blog Got Me In Trouble…Again

I did it again. No, not an impression of Brittney Spears (and for that, you’re welcome). “It” was say something on my blog that had absolutely nothing to do with anyone except–gasp–ME and pissing someone off in the process.  In reality, annoyed or saddened are probably more accurate word choices than mad, but whichever we […]

Hopping into Fall

It's that time again….the One Little Word blog hop, hosted by Margie. Our group continues to dwindle as the year gets closer to the end; that's alright, though. We all know that everyone's journey is different, and just because some choose to not broadcast their steps for all to see doesn't mean they aren't taking […]

Wisdom, or something like it

Reverb10 December 10 – Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out? prompted by Author Susannah Conway  Full disclosure: I avoided this prompt yesterday. Wisdom is such a big word…so much bigger than smart, clever, accomplished, intellectual, knowledgeable…bigger, even, than the definitions I found when I felt […]
