If you don't try, you certainly have no hope of success.

“Personal transformation isn’t always comfortable. Often it is even painful, but that’s okay. It is partly the pain of this internal voyage that changes you. As you leave your mark on your work, it leaves its mark on your consciousness, and on your heart. You leave some things behind, take some things with you, and hopefully share some things with others along the way, even if only stories. This is the way... You cannot cross the sea by merely standing on the shore and looking at it.”
Robert Herd

She who conquers herself is the mightiest warrior.

"As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave. With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior." ~Dan Millman

"Dear Heavenly Father,
Sometimes I’m not entirely sure where You’re leading me or what Your plan is. I’m battling fear of the future, and I worry about what others will think. But, I trust that You gave me gifts I am meant to use, even if that means starting small, where I am, with what I have. I trust You have a plan for how my gifts will unfold and serve the world. I’m here, with hands wide open, ready to show up with what You’ve given me, right now, right here, in my own unglamorous, totally divine, everyday life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen."

    Funny you are mentioning a cruise! Tacy just booked us for next April with a 40% discount due to the Covid cruise so she is splurging on a verandah cabin. Five days, San Diego to Vancouver on the Disney Wonder. I think cabins are still available. One of Tacy's friends, 2 of her kids,12 & 4, and 12yo's paternal grandma will be in the inside cabin across the hall from us. I am so lucky my daughter likes to take me on adventures; me and my mom, yikes, we did 3 road trips, SanDiego to Seattle area, lots of yelling involved.

    Oh Belinda!!! I miss you and this is all my fault. I was truly sick with Covid last we were in touch and my depression and fear over took me, so our lack of connection is on me. I will make up for this lapse!!! So... how have you been since last April? (boy is my head hanging in shame, it's been so long!) I am again on the downside of my reaction to vaccine, I have had the lingering symptoms after Covid and the vaccine feels like a set back back to how I felt about August. Such a weird virus. The Dr said he's seeing this in patients but doesn't want to warn them it could happen thinking they might put off vaccinating.
