Courage is not always obvious.

Courage is not always obvious.

It’s Sunday night and I need to write something….


Today I posted Ten Things of Thankful on my other blog, Mangia, Mangia…No Talk!!!

I wrote about a situation that I was thankful for, because I recognized that I am strong… and that by  hiding my reaction, or not reacting, it is creating a better safer barrier… Does that make sense?


Tonight on Facebook, I received a message from God, which was:



Today we believe God wants us to know that...

Courage is not always obvious.


Sometimes courage speaks in a small voice of quiet determination to return tomorrow and try again.


Tomorrow I try again; nothing changes, yet I am that person that will always keep trying…I show up every single day. If that is not enough; well then truth is, that is all I can do, for now.

My small voice is quite determined to speak or not speak, but gently let everyone know that I try each day, no matter what happened I am back and brave.

Like most bloggers, I do sometimes fall into that horrid blog envy trap. You know the one that has you trolling other sites late at night and wondering why your blog isn't as popular or slick as theirs. Your eyes dilate and you get sucked into the void of envy. "Her blog gets more traffic." "Her blog looks better." "She's a better writer than I am." That's a no win situation that can make you spiral downward. Blog envy doesn't help your blog. But no, blog envy isn't what's ruining my blog. Trying to be perfect is killing my blog. Here's how the craziness of perfection is choking the life out of my blog and maybe yours.   Read more >
