The Poison of Comparing Yourself

Want to ruin your day? It’s easy and doesn’t cost a penny. Just indulge in the poison of comparison. Last night I parked my past-middle-aged orange Jeep outside the garage because my husband and I planned to assemble new bookcases and needed the room. I’d just plopped onto the front porch this morning after feeding the horses and dogs and

Why I Believe That YOU Are An Overcomer

It’s been said that 80% of success is just showing up. I second that. The most important characteristic of overcomers is persistence. The next is the hope that change is possible.

Unanswered Prayer? Try Reframing Your Question

I’m the roadblock. “It’s me, I’m the guilty person, the reason my horses aren’t in photos like this one.” It’s easy to compare ourselves to others, usually
