The idiom “worried sick” has been around since the 1800s. Worry, stress, anxiety, and fear can lower your immune system. It’s reasonable to concerned as there are so many unknowns right now… but worrying yourself sick over the current situation (or over anything) does not serve you or serve the world! As schedules and settings… Continue reading An Interesting Time
Nature’s first law is order. Without order, you are cruising toward chaos. In chaos, you stifle or completely crush the amazing experience you are on this earth to have. I’m not self or professionally diagnosed OCD… far from it. Trust, there are disorganized piles and areas in our home. Also trust that I know those… Continue reading Organized.
I woke up this morning and before both feet hit the ground, my mile-long To Do list starting scrolling in my mind. Within a minute of being awake, the overwhelm kicked in and I felt like I had just so much to do that I had to start now and not stop (probably forever). I… Continue reading Stop. Pick One.
Why… because I can’t not. Ooooooooo the English teacher just rocked a double negative! Because I don’t define myself as an English teacher. I am not my job. But society will try to force you into labeling and identifying as what you do. That never sat right with me and, for years, I wouldn’t tell… Continue reading Why. My Young Living Story.

This past week was book-ended with loss for our Rescue group. Philomena, long-time sanctuary bun and notorious feisty lady, made her journey over the Rainbow Bridge on Tuesday. I volunteer time every week at our sanctuary and special needs foster home so teeny tiny Philomena and I had a relationship— not a close one, but… Continue reading Philomena & Boo
Alternate title: Lies My Rabbits Told Me How do you best admit struggle when you’re the leader? How do you exhale and admit, “It’s getting tough for us over here!” when you’re the one people turn to when the stuff gets tough for them? Confession: bonding got tough this week, out of seemingly nowhere (but… Continue reading The Business of Bonding
Help can take myriad forms. For labeling purposes, help in the Rescue world takes the following forms: -Catches/Rescues: safely containing and bringing an abandoned rabbit to safety -Adopting: committing to loving and caring for a rabbit indoors for his/her life span -Fostering: caring for and loving an adoptable or sanctuary rabbit in your home until… Continue reading Never Too Far
All this self-imposed pressure to make the days count, to make them epic (and how overused is that word lately? I actually saw a sign, affixed to a telephone pole last week, that read “Epic Garage Sale.” I’m sorry I missed it), to make use of the days off while simultaneously enjoying the freedom and… Continue reading Make It Count
