Never the same...

In our never ending rush back to normal, after a disruption in life, maybe we should consider which parts, of the beforehand normal, are worth rushing back to. When our “perfect” life has been disrupted we have an opportunity to look at what needs to change in order to make life better in the future. Also, when life changes or challenges us, the question we eventually begin to ask is, what’s the next step? When tackling a project we devise a plan, follow directions, and make adjustments and corrections as necessary. While developing our careers we may know our “job” but how many tasks do we have to take on, think through, and complete in order to do our job well. Relationships require us to

Changes in life...a new normal

This week I, as well as many others, are celebrating a relationship that transcends. This relationship has been affecti

Moving from Stressed to Steadfastness

Keeping the “next thing” a priority can be difficult when we are distracted and stressed. Crisis we face in life can also change our priorities, personal goals, tasks at hand, and even our prospective about life in general. Finding balance in relationships, work, personal needs, and responsibilities is something we should all strive to achieve throughout life. “Seasons in life” change just as life itself keeps changing. Some seasons in life are short, other seasons can seem as if they have no end. Each, season of life, impacts us as we grow personally, change individually, and reconcile intentionally. We can continue to work at regaining balance and remaining steadfast, while dealing with
