A Little Southern Cooking in Spain

This past weekend I did something that I haven't done in awhile.  I cooked a huge meal for my hosts in Spain.  It was my way of thanking them for all that they've done for me while I've been here in Spain.  They've taken me to see other cities, old castles and...

My Messy Life

My life was a little messy this week.  I know that life has a tendency to be messy at times, this messiness just points out to me that it's not a place where I thrive.   When it does happen I find myself looking for ways to get back to the ease and flow that I've come...

Who Am I in this Moment in Time?

It’s Not What I Do…

When thinking about making a change in my life, I can get stuck.  The fear of making that change can keep me from moving forward in my life.  If this is happening, then it's like I'm paralyzed and unable to take action.  In times like this, I try to remind myself....

It All Gets to Be There

Have you ever noticed that there are parts of yourself that are harder to accept than others?  If you can't accept those parts, then what do you do?  Do you pretend that they don't exist?  Do you push that part down so that it can't exert itself very often?  If you've...

Our Choices Make Us Who We Are

“We all make choices, but in the end our choices make us.” ― Ken Levine I've been thinking about choice this week.  Sometimes we may feel like we don't have a choice, but usually we do.  It may be that you have 2 options and neither of them are really great, but you...
