Other’s Expectations

Continuing on with my personal examination of this Lenten season, this letter is addressed to “They”. Why? Because I have some things to say to “them”. Releasing myself from the expectations of others, is the focus of this edition of “Becoming Today”. Hello “They”, I have had enough. I am saying no more! I honestlyContinue reading “Other’s Expectations”

Thank You, but…

Not grammatically the best way to begin however this is one of those discussions full of contrasts.  Weighing all sides, then recalling we are not limited to just two sides of every question, so choosing to examine the perspectives from 360 points of view, the circle continues to spin and my inability to make aContinue reading “Thank You, but…”


The subjugation to suppression, bondage, and duress. In this case not to another person. Not to an entity. Not by governmental action, nor criminal activity.  The enslavement I need to “give up” is to the issues lingering from within, that are holding me captive and preventing me from moving on. That’ll be the focus ofContinue reading “Enslavement”


Decisions are something that apparently more than a few people have trouble with. As I often have shared, I belong to the schools of thought that teach,…. What happens when you make a decision? Either it works. Or it doesn’t It always made perfect sense to me, however as we’ll explore on this edition ofContinue reading “Indecision”

Questioning Questioning

There is no question mark required. I am most definitely questioning my questioning. In this “Lenten Letter” I am realizing a connection between several issues I am attempting to ‘give up’. My resistance seems to stem from my denying myself and remaining adhered to false labels and past identities. That will be our focus onContinue reading “Questioning Questioning”

Selfish Selfishness

Part of the process. Another piece of the puzzle.  As this enigma, wrapped in a mystery shrouded by my own self imposed limitations, is again exorcising another revelation in my daily seasonal therapy.  In this “Lenten Letter” I am realizing my inability to address not being selfish to myself stems from a realization of myContinue reading “Selfish Selfishness”


I’m sorry for the overly positive headline today… well maybe not, but it is an honest straight to the point summation of the observation I’ve been making about the overall condition my condition has been in the past few days. Not very Becoming I admit, but truthful.  So as we progress together in this “LentenContinue reading “Malaise”

Allowing To Blossom

When last we spoke I mentioned I had been noticing some recurring patterns. Again I am cognisant of those connections, seeing  them more clearly and appreciating the synchronicities.  On this edition of “Becoming Today”, we’ll discuss how letting go of some things allows them and us to blossom. One of the concurrences of events I’mContinue reading “Allowing To Blossom”

Clarifying Connections

So I’ve been noticing some things. Evidence of recurring patterns that I have recognized as I continue to move forward in this real time series of “Lenten Letters”.  On this edition of “Becoming Today” we’ll examine how clarifying these connections is aiding my goal, while causing even more things to come into the light. HeyContinue reading “Clarifying Connections”

Struggling With Silence

This is another one of those issues, which I’m dealing with from two sides. One I’d like to “give up” in today’s Lenten Letter and the other I need to regain focus of. Which one should I address first? Let me flip a coin and see as we begin this edition of “Becoming Today”. OkayContinue reading “Struggling With Silence”

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: Hesitation

Even now as I attempt to begin this conversation, I find myself hesitating. So with further delay, let’s get things underway on this edition of “Becoming Today”. Over the past two weeks, I’ve been writing a letter a day in an attempt to give things up for Lent. It’s an exercise I decided to tryContinue reading “Lenten Letters: Hesitation”

Lenten Letters: Discouragement

On this edition of “Becoming Today”, I’ll share my desire to let go of discouragement. Holding true to my promise to spend the 40-days of Lent by each day dealing with a troublesome issue I’d like to ‘give up’, first let’s come to a mutually understood definition of why I know I need to releaseContinue reading “Lenten Letters: Discouragement”

Lenten Letters: False Beliefs

As I continue on with this focus on releasing and healing, I want to remind why I’ve undertaken this process.  Even in secular culture the idea of giving something up for Lent has increased in practice in recent years. Though without the deep spiritual connection it seems many of the promises of giving something up,Continue reading “Lenten Letters: False Beliefs”

Lenten Letters: Procrastination

Our current focus on giving things up for Lent has led me to undertake this series of releases. Attempting to let go of any number of behaviors, concerns, ideas or situations. On this edition of “Becoming Today”, I’m seeking to say goodbye to procrastination. Hello Rochelle, Well we’ve been down this road before, haven’t we?Continue reading “Lenten Letters: Procrastination”

Throughout this week, we’ve begun a 40-day process to help ourselves grow and be better able to be becoming. On Tuesday, I introduced the concept in “Illuminating Lent”. Since then I’ve dealt with issues of releasing, connecting the dots between letting go of guilt and shame plus seeking various types of peace.
