I Am Learning to Love the Sound

I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things that aren’t good for me. Is that not the best? I saw it posted this morning, and I could hear the sound…and it’s sweet. It’s not easy to (a) admit when something is not good for you and (b) walk awayContinue reading “I Am Learning to Love the Sound”

Vulnerability Is Terrifying

“Vulnerability is terrifying.” That was the first line of a meme I saw this morning. So true. To be authentic takes vulnerability, and because it truly is terrifying to put yourself out there, that may explain why people don’t seem very “real” these days. They’re scared. I think people are walking around with their guardsContinue reading “Vulnerability Is Terrifying”

Sick of Shiny

I am a collector of quotes. I like inspirational sayings, motivating verses, and passages that hit home. I have a whole Pinterest board related to them, as well as various and sundry clippings, post-its, and cut outs of gems that struck a chord. But sometimes I get sick of shiny. I don’t want to seeContinue reading “Sick of Shiny”

AWOL…but with permission.

I’ve been AWOL. I never thought I would go without posting a TILT, but it’s been over a week without one. I was pretty committed and swore I’d never do it. But I had permission…from myself. I think sometimes life surrounds us with a hundred little stacks and piles. Stacks and stacks of responsibilities. PilesContinue reading “AWOL…but with permission.”

Different. Nice.

We can be different if you’re nice. If you’re nice, we can be friends. If we are friends, you can expect my loyalty, grace, and support. We can be different if you’re not nice. If you’re not nice, we can’t be friends. If we are not friends, you can (oddly) still expect my loyalty, grace,Continue reading “Different. Nice.”

Let yourself go?

What do y’all think it means if you’ve “let yourself go”? Are you eating ice cream straight from the carton, curled up on the couch in sweats, most weekends? Girl. Took a shower…maybe yesterday? Sister. Wear your husband’s old, holey softball tournament tshirt and faded leggings…with Uggs… to the grocery store? Sweet Friend. We doContinue reading “Let yourself go?”

Creating Peace, Love & Joy #2

I’m working this week to CREATE a little more peace, love, and joy by making some adjustments here and there to my daily habits.  Yesterday, I told you about the first one… I turned off my email notifications. It’s actually working! I feel less inundated with work (it’s still there but it’s not yelling atContinue reading “Creating Peace, Love & Joy #2”

10 Things To Unlearn Now

Y’all, I have had to unlearn some things. I picked all this up along the way as the gospel, the truth, the way it is, what’s right. I thought it was, and if I had not been open to new concepts or applied my own critical thinking, I would still believe these “truths”. Here goes…Continue reading “10 Things To Unlearn Now”

She’s hot. Don’t be ridiculous, and tell her.

Ok, so this might sting. I only apologize in advance just a little, because I don’t really want to hurt anybody’s feelings, but it needs to be said. Sister, if you can’t recognize, acknowledge, and appreciate that another woman is pretty, you need a little self reflection. And to take it a step further, youContinue reading “She’s hot. Don’t be ridiculous, and tell her.”
