I Lied And Said I Was Busy

I Lied And Said I Was Busy

Have you ever lied about being ‘busy’? The vague ‘oh I have an appointment then” when you really don’t? That sort of thing? I most certainly have.  In the past I think I lied about this quite often. Or worse didn’t and struggled through situations that were far too much for my physical well-being, not to mention emotional or mental well-being.

A Word On Enough-ness

A Word On Enough-ness

Beautiful Soul, this is your friendly reminder that You Are Enough.

A ‘who me?’ Moment You Can Learn From Too

A ‘who me?’ Moment You Can Learn From Too

Ever have a ‘who me?’ moment?  You know, where you can’t believe someone just said that about you? I had 2 last week that have inspired this post that were almost identical.  This of course, set me to mulling it over in my head and journaling about it to sort it all out. All it was, was a little side comment from someone. They simply said ‘Bonnie never gets upset, she’s always got it together even at the end of…

Why You Don’t Need New Year Resolutions

Why You Don’t Need New Year Resolutions

Why don’t you need to bother with New Year’s resolutions? Easy answer?  Because they SUCK and you don’t really care about them anyway. C’mon, am I right? Little bit? Yeah, I thought so.
