Be Loved

Who doesn’t want to be loved? We all want it, we all crave it and we all want to receive it and feel it. And when we give love, we want what we’re offering  to be accepted.

So let me ask you again, do you believe you are beautiful?

Typical minor problems feel overwhelmingly impossible to deal with in the dead of the night then in the light of day. And in those foreboding moments, has anyone ever told you that things will look better in the morning? Why is that? The darkness shrouds reality and twists it into something hideous. Unrecognizable. Unmanageable. When in truth —in the light—it’s not that terrifying, not so unmanageable.

It’s Not Personal…

Labor Of Love

September is upon us and time to shift from long summer days into not-so-long autumn days. Some of us may be ready for the shift. Cooler days and nights. Bon-fires and hoodies. Brightly colored leaves and pumpkins. And we kick it all off with Labor Day.
