Hello, my friends! So much has happened since we spoke last! I won't go into all of it, but it was a lot of big life things that no matter how much you think you have a handle on your emotional triggers, it some of it still jumps up and bites you in the butt. … Continue reading Day 11

…and then I turned 40.
It's evening here in Missouri. I'm sitting here in my house, trying to knit pieces to an afghan, listening to the cats fight, and thinking about my last year. For grins I went and re-read the post I wrote for my 39th birthday. It makes me laugh and laugh. Oh Sarah, you had no idea … Continue reading …and then I turned 40.
something to hold onto
Sometimes I wonder why I still blog. I mean, it is kind of a dying thing. But then I start writing and I remember that sometimes an online journal can be healing. So I think that is where I am today. I don't know what I need to say, but I need to say it. … Continue reading something to hold onto
Today I'm going to tell you all a little story about a key. Honestly, I'd meant to write about it a long time ago, but all the drama involving my eye overshadowed this tale. I probably wouldn't be writing about it now, however, it's been so interesting watching people get up the courage to ask … Continue reading the key
20/20: perfect vision
Recently I heard the line, "know the difference between spectacular and significant." It was said in the context of ourselves. How often do we look at others, in all their spectacular glory, and wish we were different? I don't know about you, but for me, it's a lot. I fail to recognize my own significance … Continue reading 20/20: perfect vision
2019 in review
A very dear friend of mine, Willie, shared this with me after one of my most raw posts this past year. I've kept this as a reminder that I vowed to be real and not fake, no matter the cost. It's special to me. I was almost dreading writing this post. I've done it every … Continue reading 2019 in review
ewwww, david. no.
(from Life.Church) Do any of you have any phrases that you say to yourself just out of habit? I do. It's usually under my breath, and almost always after I've done something dumb or I'm overwhelmed. It is always, "Oh my goodness, Sarah. What in the world." (Not a question, just a statement.) I have … Continue reading ewwww, david. no.
goals, direction, and starting to see light.
Seeing the light arriving Greetings, my friends! And Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a great and relaxing weekend. It has been raining off and on yesterday and today and honestly it's been nice to chill for a hot minute. I did quite a bit of socializing this week and was oh-so-ready for a … Continue reading goals, direction, and starting to see light.
I changed my hair color this week. I needed change. I am obsessed with it. Red! Hello all. I know I've been MIA the last several weeks and I'm sorry for that. Life has been happening. Lots of life has been happening. Real life with hard emotions, big decisions, love, loss, and forging forward. And … Continue reading heartburn.
I am not skinny … but …
I have worked so hard these last couple of weeks in the gym. I'm pushing myself in my lifts and I've added "bonus" cardio everyday. And guess what? My weight hasn't changed. I've gone up and down the same 3lbs for almost 3 weeks now. I've stayed within my macros and I've turned down cupcakes … Continue reading I am not skinny … but …
