Will you love me even if I fail?

Wouldn't it be wonderful to be this unafraid of failure again?

I had a big revelation last night.  Huge!

I have the opportunity to submit a Miracle Journal book proposal to Hay House Publishing – the biggest name in personal development books – that will be reviewed by the CEO of the company.  As a writer without an agent, that’s practically unheard of in the publishing …

Waiting to exhale

leaf dipping

I made it.  Yesterday is over.  I’m grateful for all the support and love I’ve received from everyone.  It’s a reminder to me – in the past I wouldn’t usually say anything, so I wouldn’t get any support.  Just goes to show what happens when I let myself be vulnerable – amazing angels show up …

A mystery wrapped in an enigma

I know this day will come once a year. No matter how I prepare myself, every year I feel like I’ve been sucker punched once again.

Each year, I think that surely by next year the hurt will have played itself out. 12 years later that hasn’t happened yet.

This morning when I awoke, it …

The Godfather’s Daughter

thegodfathersdaughter

Sometimes healing finds you in the most unexpected places. For me, it was in the pages of a book about a mobster’s daughter.

I was excited to start reading it as soon as it arrived. I read the first three pages of the introduction…

And I had a total and complete meltdown.

I was completely …

Desperately Seeking Dysfunction

My dad has been on my mind and in my conversation a lot over the last several weeks.  That is usually a signal that another “divine opportunity for healing” is right around the corner. Oh joy.

My growing up years were dominated by my father’s alcoholism.  He was very high-functioning in the world and many …

Sharp shooter

Over the weekend I did something brand new – I shot a gun for the first time!

In my continuing odyssey of super-cool things that the newspaper has sent me to do, I took a gun safety class that included a session at the firing range on Saturday.

Having never shot a gun before, I …

Healing heartbreak

healingheartbreak

Today I got an email from my dear friend Sheila that called me out on my recent use of the word “heartbreak” and “heartbroken.”

Let me interrupt myself here for a moment and ask – do you have friends in your life who will tell you the full, unvarnished truth?  Not in a mean-spirited or …

Will you still love me…

I had a profound – and profoundly disturbing – realization this morning as I spoke with my prayer partner.  I was telling her about an upsetting conversation I’d had over the weekend and, as sometimes happens, I started to hear myself speaking as if I were sitting on my own shoulder.  From that place, I …
