LOVE in the time of COVID-19 

I never thought I’d say those two things in the same sentence; love and Covid-19. But, these are unprecedented times and in the midst of the ‘shelter in place’ order, I’m observing some interesting shifts in our communities. Maybe it’s just me wanting to find the good in everyone. Or, perhaps this global crisis is having an effect on us…a positive one. 

At first I thought I might be imagining it, because a lot of my observations were coming from Facebook posts. But yesterday I ventured out to one of my…

Trust the Little Voice

What's in a Word? 

Today, while searching the web for some blog material inspiration that ISN'T about the election, I came across this nifty list of Words to Use More Often:

Characters turn into words, that turn into sentences, that form thoughts that can shape our opinions, beliefs, moods, and actions.

Why We’re So Often Disappointed, and What To Do About It 

by Kimberly Cope

Public Service Announcement: The two biggest things that lead to disappointment are...drum roll please...perspective and expectation.
Perspective is defined as our outlook or viewpoint, and is unique to each individual and based upon our life experiences.
For example, I’m 5 feet tall and have experienced life as a short person. To me life looks normal from my 5-foot vantage point and things just are what they are. I’m quite used to looking up to catch most peoples’ gaze and my car seat is…Read more
