Can you possibly have as many distractions in your life as I do? 

I suppose a better question might be, who doesn’t? Thats just life these days.

I think if I had to give 2017 a name it would be titled “2017 The Year Of Distractions”.

I don’t know about you, but for me, it seems that the more I get myself together, the more I feel like I don’t have it together. Yea, think about that. Not easy to admit it but I think it may be true for many of us. Am I all alone in this?

There is so much vying for our attention that the minute we fix our eye’s on something that will lead to new growth and a better rela...

It can be a catch 22 because you want that boulder off your shoulders but the boulder is no lightweight pebble and can be too heavy to get it off of us without help.

One of the lessons I keep learning is that my view of things at times is significantly off. My story around my "stuff" is skewed. My belief system needs a complete reboot. How about you?

Frank and I had a good time together in the beginning of our relationship. He was an accepting, loving  and understanding man. His only issue was he had a drinking problem. I knew I was getting myself into trouble. I broke up with him early on and all it took was a mushy card with a sweet note to find my way back to him. 

I have always had these two sides to me. One was the escape artist and the other was the real me that spoke very quietly and secretly to me. That voice was such a whisper but it spoke to me saying, this is not who you are and you know it. It was clear, deep down on what...

So, if you remember, I ended part 2 of Growing up Sandy with such a dysfunctional view of myself and a totally skewed idea of what I was supposed to be in order to fit into the worlds expectations of me. I thought and believed, now that I was thin….that all was good in disillusionville (yes, I made that word up). 

Part 3 

Anyway, my unintentional goal became, let’s make up for lost dating/boy time. Let’s just say my judgement was off, my self respect was no longer a consideration. I’ll leave out most of the details except for a few key points. 

My part time job at the local Toys R Us for Christmas 1...

Good Girl Lost

Remember those early teen years where the whole world lay before you full of hope and opportunity? Here's what I remember about that time....oh and that's me in the middle in about 1976 in Manhattan. That might be the Manhattan Library. I have no idea what the sign was for.

Anyway, as a young teenager, I really was such a good kid in my heart like most of us are. Yet this good girl was starving for....well, anything, everything and more.

Sound familiar at all? Looking back now, I had plenty of friends and plenty of good times yet, always totally aware of my perception of never truly f...

Good Lord, what a life!  I feel the need to start right there because so often I had wondered, what in the world would life have been like if I had God in my life as a child? Maybe I wouldn’t have felt so horribly self conscious, so ashamed simply by waking up as me each day. 

I used to imagine having this family that laughed and told stories about their day over the dinner table, who went to church together, loved each other in a healthy close way, hugging and so many easy “I love you’s” expressed. It’s easy to picture other families living that way when you’re looking from the outside in bu...

Lessons that we learn and grow from can sometimes come in the most unexpected packages. Have you ever noticed that? If we can have an open heart as well as a discerning eye to see and ears to hear we open ourselves to teachings and experiences that otherwise may have never been noticed or learned. This has been the case for the wonderful class I am coaching for some young women. Sometimes I am right there getting insights into my own life just from the interactions in my class. The result is, iron sharpens iron in this class.

What this experience reminds me of is Proverbs 27:17NIV where it says: I...
