Are You Busy Being Busy?

Are You Really Too Busy? Sometimes I have to ask myself the question:  Are You Busy Being Busy? True enough, I always have a lot going on, but am I really too busy to take time out for what’s really important (i.e. family, friends, me time)?  Well occasionally I am, but …

Where Does Time Go?

My How Time Flies Time just seems to escape us on occasion.  It’s been over a month since I’ve written a blog post and the title of it was “It’s Always Something.”  I find that ironic since the tune of this post, and that one are in sync.  There is …

It’s Always Something: Doubt. Fear. Life Interuppted.

The Source of My Strength

Recognizing the Source of My Strength One of my co-workers is always saying that I have so much energy.  I don’t always recognize that because I just do what I do without ever thinking about it. But then when she mentions it, I do kind of seem like the Eveready Energizer Bunny (that …
