Happily Ever After

…is a phrase that ends children’s stories.  No need to worry about what comes next.  The good guys get rewarded, the bad guys are either gone or have learned their lessons, and all is right with the world.  No more work, no more struggle, no more heavy lifting, just bliss and happiness and playtime forever. …

Looks Good On Paper

Ever had an exchange with someone over email or text where you completely misunderstood what was meant?  What is on paper loses something in translation and emoji and emoticons can’t quite make up for the emotional content which makes the intent and possibly the whole meaning mysterious and up to interpretation.  Sometimes this has hilarious…

Stop Processing

Being in process is the “finding myself” of the 21st Century.  Being in process, getting into the process, figuring out the process, following through on the process, seeing it for what it is, just letting it….Oh good grief!  Time to process the processing of your process elsewhere, please.

You Know What Your Sin Is?

What’s that one thing???

People want to know what that one thing is that they are supposed to do.  That one thing that is going to make everything click.  That one thing that makes it all make sense, that gets rid of the nagging doubts, the unsatisfied feeling, the need to look for something more.  To which I say…
