Working Through Cycles of Personal Growth

Like An Anchor

We often think of growth as happening one direction. Growing things expand and get older, they don’t shrink or get younger. If something is not moving forward, then it’s not growing.

But maybe that’s not always the case, especially when we’re talking about personal growth journeys. Growth like this doesn’t happen all at once or in a steady direction. Sometimes, a thing that you thought you dealt with will come back and needs to be worked through again. You often have to keep going back over the same ground in order to make progress.

This isn’t failure to grow. But it might look like it depending on our perspective. If we’re the type of person who wants to get everything right the first time, then it can be discouraging when we find ourselves having to deal with something we thought we’d already worked through. We might even decided that since…

Week in Review 4/26/2019

BigAndPinkyToes

I hope everyone had a great week. Thanks for checking out my weekly series posted every Friday, Week in Review. Enjoy a recap of how the week went down, and tell me about yours.

1) What’s gotten my attention this week?

1st Day School Supplies. So the kids’ school is doing this really cool thing for next year through this website, 1st Day School Supplies. All I did was select the grade my kids will be in next year and their color preferences. When my kids show up for their first day of school next year their supplies will be placed neatly in a box with their name on it. The best thing for me is that I won’t have to go to 3 different stores trying to track down specific items to fulfill the whole supply list. Also, I don’t have to think or worry about it AT…

BLUEBERRY GREEN TEA AND A TALE

Tea and Tales

Crazy busy around the household. That weather guy is saying storms are coming this evening. It’s been windy every day so if you step outside you look like the lion king.

I made a recipe that Diane had on her blog for Lemon Blueberry Loaf. I doubled it and made two so I could give one to friends. It is delicious! Check it out  Here  .

I had just the tea to go along with it. The Harney & Sons Blueberry Green Tea. It is insanely delicious and so is the loaf. Tommy was taking pictures and sending them to his co-workers it was so good.

I’ve gotten so many things done over the week-end and the past couple of days. I’m giving my bedroom a makeover. I’m waiting on one shipment from Linens and Hutch with my new sheets and shams and I think I’ll be done. Since…

My Week 229: Facebook Doesn’t Know Me At All

mydangblog

I’ve been really sick this week, so here’s something from a few years ago that still applies today—I hope you enjoy it!

Have you noticed the increasing proliferation of bizarre Facebook quizzes that purport to identify different aspects of your personality with absolute accuracy? While they are, for the most part, as generic as horoscopes in telling you about what kind of person you are, they are getting more and more desperate for new topics as they attempt to mine your data. At first, it was TV shows or films, like “Which Game of Thrones Character Are You?” or “Which Bond Girl Are You Most Like?” Respectively, I got Arya Stark, and Xenia Onatopp, former Soviet fighter pilot and top assassin. This was very disappointing—I really wanted Daenerys Targaryen, Mother Of F*cking Dragons instead of a whiny little kid who makes lists about who she wants to kill instead of…
