White Cane Safety Day
When I was growing up my Mama's best friend's husband was blind and we saw them a lot. So I grew up thinking a white cane was normal, I saw how helpful it was.

Conflict Resolution Day
Conflict is "my thing" and by that I mean it's my biggest fear trigger. In my early 30's I had to finally deal with this issue.  My fear of conflict was causing more conflict, manifesting in people pleasing, in short I was miserable. Through counseling I read a book. I studied and applied the principles and to this day I consider it to be one of the most life changing books I have ever read and absorbed.
Do I like conflict now?  NOPE.  But do I avoid it? NOPE.
Conflict is a slippery slope.  It can ruin your own emotional, and spiritual, health. It can, and will, ruin your personal relationships as well as your professional ones.
If you avoid conflict by either escaping or attacking I highly encourage you to address that avoidance and learn how to face conflict in healthy ways.


If you need help in resolving conflict or learning how to resolve conflict, here is a list of organizations that offer services.

#TransformationTuesday

Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 




Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 








#FRIENDSFriday

So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!


And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!

#SentimentalSunday

sen·ti·men·tal
/ˌsen(t)əˈmen(t)l/
adjective
of or prompted by feelings of tenderness, sadness, or nostalgia.



Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
