Waiting On Why

2018-10-17T00:13:49+00:00 October 17th, 2018|It is well with my soul., meh., The struggle is real.|

It’s a question I hear often throughout my day. The one little word that holds so much potential for a child; yet so much frustration for an adult. The three-letter word that has the potential to either inspire a person to investigate further in wonder or throw their hands up in frustration. “Why”. The sneaky [...]

Late Night Confession – Control

2018-10-15T00:35:46+00:00 October 15th, 2018|It is well with my soul.|

It’s 11:06pm on a Sunday night. Which means that I really should be in bed… you know… sleeping. But here I am, on the couch writing because I know myself well enough to know what will happen if I don’t. It will start with the fan. I’ll crank it up to high in an attempt [...]

I Chose

From thoughts about the signs in my yard, to a local small business owner launching an attack on my character (and then those who stepped in to defend me) based on a blog post of mine where I called out elected officials for their inaction and down-right rude behavior, I’ve heard plenty about my decision [...]

Wondering why there is a double standard? Me too.

2018-09-22T15:59:49+00:00 September 22nd, 2018|The struggle is real.|

A good percentage of this week’s media coverage has been on Kavanaugh’s character. Rightly, so. The Supreme Court is a lifelong appointment. The Me Too Movement has created a space for those who have experienced unwanted advances or sexual assault to come forward; to feel less alone. I will admit that when I turned on [...]

The Elephant in the Room

2018-08-12T00:40:18+00:00 August 12th, 2018|The struggle is real.|

It was all fun and games. Until it wasn’t. Coffee, lunch, phone calls, text messages. “Beth, how are you doing? Let me know if you need anything.” “Beth, I just wanted to tell you that your tenacity is inspirational.” Oooo this one’s my favorite: “Beth you’re such a great citizen lobbyist.” Mmm hmmm. Blah. Blah. [...]
