Is Returning To Normal What We Really Want?

"I can't wait until we get back to normal.""Returning to normal will be wonderful.""The sooner we can go back to the way things were, the better." These three sentences were spoken in conversations I was a part of this week. I understand the premise behind each statement, each desire, each...

What’s So Special About An Ordinary Tuesday?

Do you have a favorite day of the week? I'm not sure if I have a favorite, but surprisingly, I'm kinda fond of Tuesdays. Tuesdays are typically ordinary days, aren't they? They don't get the bad wrap of Mondays, nor the excitement of Fridays. Nor do they have a prestigious name like "hump day."...

Are You Too Busy? Replace Busy With Something Better

Years ago I decided to take the word "busy" out of my vocabulary. It's true. I rarely say it today. Back then, however, I was at a point in my life where I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Ever been there? My life was hurried and harried. As the saying goes, I met myself coming and...
