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…

And we have “Argh!” today

Random Writings on the Bathroom Wall

Idiot drivers per square mile or per square kilometer goes thru the roof on days like these. I’m so glad that I’m working from home. Too bad I had to see the specialist today. I wonder if my insurance would buy off on a foreign specialist referral to French Polynesia???

The Act of Prayer #Thisis38

Making Time For Me

I pray at least once EVERY SINGLE DAY.  Usually first thing in the morning, I pray for anything and everyone that is on my mind.  I just run the gamut of everything that is in my head.

Then sometimes throughout the day, I take a pause and pray for something very intentional and purposeful.  I talk to God about what is on my heart and give my worries to him.  It helps, because I soon as I lift it up to the Lord I feel a sense of peace.

I do not usually pray out loud (only at church).  I do not usually pray in front of other people (only at church).  I do not pray so that someone can see me or hear me doing it and think “oh what a good Christian” or “oh what a Godly woman”.  I pray for myself, for the act of prayer itself…

Monkey

Its good to be crazy Sometimes

Monkey has found computer games, I honestly think these fucking things should not be allowed to anyone under the age of 18.

Monkey seems to think he should be able to spend the time he gets in the door to the time he goes to bed on the fucking x box.

I disagree

So far, I am stunting his growth as a human, I am very mean, I don’t love him anymore

And this is just based on a few hours, not a few hours a day, just a few hours.

I came up with a compromise that he could have an hour on the xbox and he had to read me 2 pages of his book. It was like I started world war 3 and very possibly have wiped out all human race.

Being a parent is tough, but this is the first time we have come across something…

My Bipolar Mind: You’re Not Alone – Book Now Available on Kindle!


I am beyond excited right now! My book, My Bipolar Mind: You’re not alone, is not available on Amazon.com for the Kindle edition. The paperback is coming soon!

I never imagined that I would actually ever become an author, yet here I am! I have dreamt of this my entire life. I feel so blessed and grateful. Dreams really can come true as long as you never give up. If you follow my blog, you very much well know that I have wanted to give up in defeat so many times before.

Happy New year

I Am My Own Island

So far I’ve not put much thought into my word of the year which is love for this year. I’m just enjoying the day and not thinking too much. I will say I feel proud of myself that I accomplish this life I have every day. It’s far from perfect but I keep fighting on. That’s something right?
