next stop: self-love.

This Lent has turned into something completely different than when I started over a week ago. I love it when you make plans to be diligent, and then God decides to take you for a ride down a much deeper, more poignant path. That is, if you let God do such crazy things. Here’s basically what happened: I started the Lenten Fast with the intention … Continue reading next stop: self-love.

confession: anger journal.

I’m one of those people who really struggles with the kinds of emotions that I would never, ever want to burden anyone else with.  Sorry to my English-teacher sister for the dangling participle, but it’s true.  The only person who really sees the depths of darkness and frustration is the Hub, and he really didn’t ask for that privilege.  My mom gets a little bit … Continue reading confession: anger journal.

Day 21?

Okay, I COMPLETELY forgot to post anything on the last day of the reset!  TERRIBLE!  So here’s my belated last-day post! Not that I have anything interesting to say. I’ll tell you this:  I am eating a lot of not-on-plan things down here at the music convention I’m attending with the Hub, and it’s fine, but I know this will end soon.  Oh yes.  It … Continue reading Day 21?

Day 20!

One more day, y‘all!  One more day!!! I am definitely going to continue on for the full 30 days, but I promise I‘ll leave you alone after tomorrow!  I‘ll go back to my regular, random posts, and stop filling your inboxes with my daily highs and lows. I think this way of eating is so delicious, though.  I can‘t imagine stopping, although I’m sure I‘ll … Continue reading Day 20!

Day 18 & 19.

I cannot believe this is still happening!  Anyone tired of this dang posts? Don’t answer that.  I’m tired of myself at this point. Another hurdle yesterday!  I had a rare out-of-town gig with my lovely trio (shout-out to the amazing director, who works hard to get us gigs in this difficult market called the Midwest!) We always stop after the performance and get something really … Continue reading Day 18 & 19.

Day 15 & 16.

Trudging through these days.  That‘s a word, right?  Trudging? I am really struggling this week.  My beloved coffee has been ripped away from me.  I‘m trying to heal my digestion and this is the next step, along with all the other things I‘ve eliminated. This is rough. And so not fair. And what‘s even funnier is ~ it really doesn‘t have anything to do with … Continue reading Day 15 & 16.
