My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” I was accused a few weeks ago of having given up blogging. I would like to protest that accusation, but looking at the date of my last post on here, I’m not sure I’ve got a leg to stand on arguing against that. Let me just say that in my head … More Accountability
My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” Confession: I like being in control. I like being in control of myself, my life, my emotions, everything. I don’t care quite so much about controlling other people – in fact I generally would just as soon other people control themselves and leave me out of it. But when it comes … More To Control or Not to Control
My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” My sister probably just had a heart attack when she read that title. Come now, dearie. Do you have to jump to that conclusion? Would I really do something like that? Just because one of your nicknames is “Princess?” Ok, fine, I’ve been known to be a horrible sister at times. … More The Bratty Princess
My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” So I cried for two hours straight today. And by “cried” I don’t mean a little weeping with a few tears escaping out of the corner of my eyes here and there. (If that’s the definition then I’ve been crying for nearly 9 hours straight at this point). I’m talking about … More Choose to Believe
My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” I just put on Martina McBride’s song “This One’s for the Girls.” It seemed fitting, because that’s where I’m headed with this one. Don’t worry, guys. You can keep reading.

My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” This is a sequel/follow up to a post (“Who are we dancing for?”) that my brother wrote on his blog. Nah, that’s a lie. This isn’t a sequel or follow up. It’s a complete rip off of his idea. But that’s ok. He got the idea while he was on the … More Who I Am Dancing For
My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” It’s midnight, and I can’t sleep. I write when that happens. Granted, I don’t usually write blog posts when that happens, but I do write. And there’s got to be a first time for everything… So this particular midnight I’m writing a blog post! You’ll have to forgive me if it … More TO LIFE!! (Embrace the Adventure)
My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” So I was inspired to write this post about inspiration! Sorry. I know that was super lame, but I just couldn’t resist… This is one of those subjects that’s been turning around in my brain for a while now, so I figured it was about time I sat down and tried … More Inspiration!
My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” My goodness… what a year this is turning out to be!! Lately my life has been taking turns I never expected it to, and I’ve found myself going places and doing things I never would have dreamed of a year or so ago. Makes me think of one of my favorite … More Less Stress!
My Dear “Kindred Spirit,” That’s “Beaten” down men, NOT “Beating” down men. I know some of you women are disappointed. So I want to know: what on earth have we women done to men?! I’m serious. This is dreadful. Last week I was up in the mountains of NH with some of my siblings. We … More Beaten Down Men
