Withholding

No, this “Lenten Letter” is not about making an anti-tax statement, rather it is addressed to my need to ‘give up’ not giving something to myself that I freely extend to others. I’ll explain on this edition of “Becoming Today”. Dear Rochelle, I know how you feel today. Something is amiss, not connecting, preventing meContinue reading “Withholding”

Giving Up Busyness

Now beginning our fourth week of this Lenten season, I am continuing to seek solace and wisdom in understanding the things I need to release. On this edition of “Becoming Today” in this “Lenten Letter”, I am seeking to ‘give up’ the unnecessary habit of being busy for busy’s sake. Hey Rochelle, Yeah it’s meContinue reading “Giving Up Busyness”

Controlling Time

“Becoming Today” is all about timing. The decisions, choices and options we have are related to when things will occur and trusting that the timing is right on schedule. However we must accept that schedule is not due to our planning or wishes, so in this “Lenten Letter”, I am seeking to ‘give up’ theContinue reading “Controlling Time”

Lenten Letters: The Past

This discussion will deal with the past in several different ways. The first, in my Lenten Letter as I look to move beyond some restrictive attitudes and thoughts, while the second are things we must recall. We’ll talk about the past on this edition of “Becoming Today”. While neither the word Lent, nor any indicationContinue reading “Lenten Letters: The Past”

Lenten Letters: Trifling

That may be a topic you did not expect me to bring up. Especially overseas, as I have just learned that a trifle there is defined as “an English dessert made from a mixture of thick custard, fruit, sponge cake, jelly and whipped cream”. No, I’m not giving up baking pastries, because from where IContinue reading “Lenten Letters: Trifling”

Are You Truly Trusting?

Trust is one of those things we’re constantly told we should be doing and sometimes we believe we are. However that’s not always the case even if we believe what we are saying.  On this edition of Becoming Today it’s time to discuss trust, what it is, why it’s important and whether or not youContinue reading “Are You Truly Trusting?”

For The Not So Festive

Christmas is the happiest time of the year. Song after song proclaims that and yes for many reasons it should be. However for  many it can be anything but. For those, myself included, who find themselves this year removed from celebrations on this edition of “Becoming Today”, we’ll discuss how to face the days whenContinue reading “For The Not So Festive”

Are You Trusting?

Trust is one of those things we’re constantly told we should be doing and sometimes we believe we are. However that’s not always the case even if we believe what we are saying.  On this edition of Becoming Today it’s time to discuss trust, what it is, why it’s important and whether or not youContinue reading “Are You Trusting?”

Gifts That Keep On Giving

We’re not talking about that, or if you are receiving two of the same item from different people, or even that time when your husband forgot he already bought you that, for an earlier anniversary. Rather our conversation on this edition of “Becoming Today” will examine Gifts That Keep On Giving, that you may notContinue reading “Gifts That Keep On Giving”

Do You Trust, Trusting?

Trust is one of those things we’re constantly told we should be doing and sometimes we believe we are. However that’s not always the case even if we believe what we are saying.  On this edition of Becoming Today it’s time to discuss trust, what it is, why it’s important and whether or not youContinue reading “Do You Trust, Trusting?”

Names Matter

Personal identifiers are apparently now perceived far differently than I was always led to believe. A name was something to take pride in, live up to and share as a way of making connections. However it seems, especially as we emerge into our ‘post pandemic” realities. That must no longer be the case. We’ll exploreContinue reading “Names Matter”

Examining Recent Ramblings

Not only was this a fast paced week, I also feel like I rambled and meandered from topic to topic. So as we readjust ourselves for what may lay ahead, let’s enjoy our time together now by examining the past consecutive days along our shared path of “Becoming Today”. One common note I found throughputContinue reading “Examining Recent Ramblings”

Frigg’s Day Fears?

Already? Wow it is. Another Friday and I’ve got to get caught up as this week just flew by. All kinds of things need to be done today, catch up on messages, scrub the kitchen floor and yes this Free Form Friday edition of “Becoming Today”.  Let’s begin with a topic concerning fear. I knowContinue reading “Frigg’s Day Fears?”

 Gifts You Already Have

We’re not talking about you receiving two of the same item from different people, or even that time when your husband forgot he already bought you that, for an earlier anniversary. Rather our conversation on this edition of “Becoming Today” will examine Gifts You Already Have, that you may not be making use of orContinue reading ” Gifts You Already Have”

Do You Really?

I don’t think so. In fact I feel confident enough, thanks to my own life lessons to say without a doubt- sometimes you really do not need to know.  On our shared path of “Becoming Today”, we all must deal with our own consequences, the result of our actions, decisions, attitudes and beliefs.  So whyContinue reading “Do You Really?”

Weekly, But Not Weak Review

I know it’s not possible but I feel like the winds this week blew us into the weekend a lot quicker.  At least the forecast is now calling for less hair product needed and we can stand a little taller while looking back at the winds of change from the past week on this editionContinue reading “Weekly, But Not Weak Review”

Friday Free For All

It’s been one of those weeks. The unexpected, the absurd and again I have a word stuck in my head, that is aggravating because it’s not even really a word.  So this is not only offered ‘free for all’, it’s also a random wide ranging banter of unrelated topics that I’ll try to explain onContinue reading “Friday Free For All”

What’s In A Name?

Personal identifiers are apparently now perceived far differently than I was always led to believe. A name was something to take pride in, live up to and share as a way of making connections. However it seems, especially as we emerge into our ‘post pandemic” realities. That must no longer be the case. We’ll exploreContinue reading “What’s In A Name?”
