Tonight I did an exercise that called for me to list EVERY single irritation that I have. The point is that each irritation builds on the next and creates anger altogether. I honestly didn't think I had many, but it turns out I do. The next step is to get victory over each one singularly,... Continue Reading →
Do you get your sense of self worth from a stable source?
I have had PRESSURE on me for many years. It ampped up to unbearable when I began receiving disability. I felt like I had to use my time wisely. I couldn't just slack off and eat bon bons and watch tv all day. This was not entitlement. Even though I have a part time job... Continue Reading →
Oh Wow!! Its still Lent, isn’t it?
What a time to have given up processed carbs for Lent! Ok, I have to admit that during all the news and changes in daily life I haven't kept up my promise. Carbs are my downfall. Is it too late to change what I want to give up? LOL

An encounter this week that really got to me

Tonight’s Bible verse is about my “thorn”: 2 Corinthians 12: 7- 10
What is your thorn tonight? What is your problem?I have a thorn in my side, which means I have a problem to walk through. We all have them. Some of us have chronic thorns which do not go away…just like Paul’s. Others of us get them from time to time and rip at our flesh,... Continue Reading →
I have had depression for 3 days. Three days of 15 hours in bed a day. With a couple waking hours in agony of wishing I was in bed. Today I have not been able to keep my thoughts on the positive...only neutral at best. I did go out for a walk. I know part... Continue Reading →
Depression: Are you hanging out in the negative room or in the positive room?
Wouldn't life be great if we could just go to another room whenever we feel negative? In this new room we would focus on and only feel good thoughts and feelings. Oh Wait... It is possible! Read on: I just read a piece about identifying our negative thoughts. I once tried to do this. Well... Continue Reading →
The Difference an Inch Makes
From a little hair cut I came to all these thoughts. I find it amazing that the simple things in life can make us take deep looks at ourselves. This past Sunday, after I had blown my hair completely dry, I looked in the mirror and said “No more! Today I’m cutting it right now!”... Continue Reading →
