Don’t worry ‘bout a thing!

Bluebonnet_Field_at_Sunrise_near_Mason__Texas_xlarge

  I must confess; sometimes, I am a worrier. But looking at this picture of the beautiful Texas bluebonnets brings me peace. It reminds me to be still and take in the power and glory of my Father. So many things in life are beyond our control but seeing the brilliant art that He provides us every day is a blessing beyond words.   Are you really good at worrying? Do you excel at thinking about things until you think you’ve found a solution at hand? Does paranoia creep … [Read more...]

Let Go

bird leaving cage

  Two years ago, I was let go from the job I had for 9 years. Today, I realize the POWER of those words. I was Let Go, freed, released. I was let go from captivity. The door was opened for me to spread my wings and FLY! I was let go from a place where my possibilities were limited. I was let go from a job with no more room to grow and learn. I was let go from a tedious 8-5 and Monday thru Friday routine. I was let go from an environment where gossip and envy were the daily bread. I … [Read more...]

Remember how far you’ve come!

wooden bridge

  Remember how far you've come; not just how far you have to go. No way! Those were my thoughts when I learned that I was going to need to speak in front of an audience… This is my story, the story of how I achieved something I believed impossible. Almost two years ago, I decided to embark on a new journey. The journey of starting a business…little did I know that I was going to need a lot more than just talent and willingness. I took a course and got my designation as an … [Read more...]

Do You Have a Plan B?

Plan B

    I can’t believe that it’s been 5 years since my divorce and the beginning of the creation of Woman’s InSite. So much has transpired in my life since then. I had no idea where this website would take me. If you had asked me where I wanted to be in 5 years, most of what I’m doing now wouldn’t have even been on my radar. I certainly didn’t have the confidence to think that I could do many of things that I do now. I had no plans to be a speaker, author of a book, … [Read more...]

Knowledge, is it a good thing?

Woman-thinking

Recently I was thinking about all that I’ve learned since starting this website nearly 5 years ago. When I think about the fact that the only thing I knew how to do on a computer when I started was how to send an email, it makes me wonder about my sanity at the time. What was I thinking? I mean how in the world did I think I’d be able to run a computer-based business? I had NONE of the skills needed to make it work. All I had was desire, drive and determination.   Just because I … [Read more...]

Press On

Climbing to the mountaintop

The landscape of our life is full of mountains and valleys. We mature with every step we take along our journey and become wiser and stronger for it. We’re constantly improving and growing. When we stop doing that, our purpose here is complete.   When facing the valleys of life, it can be very seductive to just settle in and have a pity party. Many times people cave into the temptation and stay in that frame of mind for a while. They lie down and cry and keep crying until they’ve … [Read more...]

You like me, you really like me!

do-you-like-me

“Criticism is something you can easily avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, being nothing.” ~ Aristotle   When we are children, we crave the approval of our parents. If we do something wrong, we are met with unpleasant consequences and disapproval. We strive to do better. This is how our conscience is formed. We learn morals and grow up to understand societal expectations for our behaviour. We care what people think of us. However, it’s not always in our best interest to … [Read more...]

Bonuses & Birthdays

Monet's Garden

Everyone has been so kind with messages for my birthday.  My "bonus birthday" as a cancer sister called it.  A term I have heard women use when they lived beyond the time frame thought possible due to their situation.   That wording might be a somber thought to some, but to me it is one that brings a sense of deep gratitude. It was in May, just about the date of my birthday in 2007 when I woke up and realized one breast was different. Everything about my life was changed from that … [Read more...]

Games, Growing Up and Being Real

a day

    What a difference a day can make. Yesterday I was posting on Facebook about the new movie coming out, a prequel to “Gone With the Wind”, chatting how I was looking forward to seeing it this fall. And a few hours later I was so upset I could hardly see straight. Please let me explain, first off, I am a joyful person, love roses and babies, and would give you the shirt off my back.  I have a happy life and a heart full of hope and gratitude. So as they say, … [Read more...]
