Good Message for Today

The word that has been with me this past year (my 50th) is “faithfulness.”

God has been so to me, so how can I not be the same?

The Gift Of Another Year

Perhaps it has to do with turning 40. Perhaps it is the resolve that often comes with the gift of another year. But I have decided to be more present to people. In other words, to look people in the eyes when I am on the street, especially if there is something in me that “profiles” them as someone who might hurt me. (The hyper-vigilance/fear I feel is probably left over PTSD from an experience I will discuss more in detail in the future).

So as a road to my healing and in facing my fear, I face the strangers around me and smile. I am also trying to tell those that are closest to me that I love them. I do not know why this so hard for me, but regardless, life is too short to be short with my love.
