You don't deserved to be healed...or so you think

You Don’t Deserved To Be Healed… Now that I have your attention (however harsh it may be right now), let me clarify. It’s not that I don’t believe you deserve healing, I was just speaking the thoughts in your mind. The thoughts you have when you want to move on from something you’ve done, but you feel stuck. The thoughts you have at night when you much rather be sleeping, but you can’t. The thoughts you have when you finally think you’re going to be happy, but you just miss i

BreakingTheCycle: Self-Sabotage

BreakingTheCycle: Self-Sabotage The word self-sabotage can be weighty all by itself and for a couple of reason. For some of us, we know we have some self-defeating behaviors and thoughts, so it’s no big surprise. For others of us, we heard someone toss that word our way once or twice and we tossed it right back because we were having none of that psychology mumbo jumbo (do people still say mumbo jumbo). And for the rest of us, we’ve never really thought about it that deep; we

When my emotional eyes are bigger than my belly...

#BreakingTheCycle: When my emotional eyes are bigger than my belly… That title was a little long, but it worked. Plus, I may or may not be a self-proclaimed foodie (I literally always have snacks), so it certainly fit my personality. But I digress. When I was in grad school (and even sometimes now), I had this thing about going home for a weekend and eating pretty much everything my mom had cooked in the house. I would essentially walk through the door, say hey and head direc

Dr. Seuss was on to something...

#BreakingTheCycle: Dr. Seuss was on to something… “Today you are You that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” Dr. Seuss Small fact about me, I am really really really into Dr. Seuss quotes. So much so that I used to keep a folder of them saved to my computer desktop for easy access. There is just something about connecting a childhood quote to adult life that makes me happy. Probably because I’m still figuring out what “adult life” means, but I

Sharing is Caring

#BreakingTheCycle: Sharing is Caring If we take a look back at any given PBS television show in the past 30 years, there are probably hundreds of episodes of some giant fuzzy, furry, feathery character trying to impart life wisdom into our eight-year-old selves. And if it wasn’t a character, it was a nice man in a cardigan who invited us to be his neighbor every day after school. (I’m leaving Barney off the list because I didn’t like him then and my protest is going 20+ years

"Until It Hurts" Preview: Day 5

I’m Dedicated...For The Most Part Verse of the Day: Matthew 6:24 “You cannot be the slave of two masters! You will like one more than the other or be more loyal to one that the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” (CEV) “You can’t worship two gods at once. Loving one god, you’ll end up hating the other. Adoration of one feeds contempt for the other. You can’t worship God and Money both.” (MSG) “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; yo

[UN]Junked! Okay, so what is that?!

What is [Un] Junked? And why does this blog even exist? These are both wonderful questions! About 5 years ago (maybe more), I was walking through a drug store and at the register there was this candy brand that I’d never seen before. With the influx of “healthy” options, this brand claimed to be the sweets that people loved without all the extra additives. I mean they offered all the alternatives to M&Ms, Reese, Hershey, etc… I love chocolate and I love not ingesting artifici
