I've spent the past two months trying to figure out how to write this post. It's not a post about me, my writing, books or anything like that. I'm devoting this time, this space for someone else. Someone I never met, someone I only know through others and what I found online. Dr. Carin Rennings. … Continue reading Celebrating Carin
I just got off the phone with an old coworker. Maria was the housekeeper for the veterinary hospital I worked in during the 90's. She's 67 today and really hasn't changed that much over the years. She's a simple person, a woman with a strong work ethic, good intentions and a crazy personality. I've always … Continue reading Going through change as an INFJ
The holidays are always filled with mixed emotions for me. I am always grateful to share Christmas and New Year's with my husband, my brother-in-law and my parents.

My husband was hospitalized the first week of January for an unknown lung illness, which we discovered a couple of months later was Coronavirus. He had just gone back to work and was feeling more normal when Covid-19 … Continue reading Thank you for being you
Have you ever been so overjoyed because you finally discovered who you are and why you do the things you do? Have you ever nearly cried with relief because you found other people who think like you and make decisions like you? Have you ever wanted to shout to the world that you aren't … Continue reading I’m worst at what I do best
This is strange. I'm sitting here with all kinds of thoughts and feelings running through my mind and body. I'm on overload. I want to talk and write about them all. But I always get ahead of myself and then become confused and frustrated, and eventually I'll shut down and end up doing nothing. … Continue reading A short intro to something bigger
