Green Day in Several Ways

On this edition of “Becoming Today”, we’ll look at this green day in a number of different and totally unrelated ways…. First let’s begin with why the 17th of March always required me to wear green. As  the very secular observance  of St. Patrick’s day is observed, my first memories of the “holiday” had toContinue reading “Green Day in Several Ways”

Stopping Self Sabotage

More than a few years ago, Jimmy Buffet came to a realization. I can hear his thoughts ringing in my head today as I recall, “some people claim there’s a woman to blame, but I know it’s my own damn fault….” You know what? When it comes to today’s conversation, I’m accepting that it isContinue reading “Stopping Self Sabotage”

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”

Illuminating Lent

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the Lenten season. While observed by many, the words, descriptions and terms will vary by denomination however all seem to be focused on the reason for the practices. So what is Lent? How does it relate to our shared path, plus I’m proposing an exercise we can all attempt overContinue reading “Illuminating Lent”

Becoming Presidential

For some this Monday is still part of the weekend. Here in the United States we pause to observe what is commonly called “President’s Day”.  Though that’s not the legal name of this federally recognized holiday.  Did you know when Congress consolidated the number of observances and moved them to specific Mondays within a givenContinue reading “Becoming Presidential”

Lessons Learned

This past week we focused on “UnLearning”. This is a process that I have been actively dealing with again in my most recent season of life. In yesterday’s post, you can revisit the key areas that I’ve been working through. I am happy to say I have learned some valuable lessons, though some of theseContinue reading “Lessons Learned”

The Only Thing That There’s Just Too Little Of

Earlier this week, something occurred that we didn’t, at the moment,  have time to take note of. However it keeps causing me to have melodies floating through my mind.  On Wednesday, legendary composer Burt Bacharach passed away. Of all his many award winning compositions there is one, that for me holds so true. It isContinue reading “The Only Thing That There’s Just Too Little Of”

Energized Through Tenacity

Yesterday in our discussion of  what it means to act with “Tenacity Comes From Within,  I shared a definition and posed some questions for you. On this edition of “Becoming Today”, so you don’t miss out, I’ll ask them again allowing you to reflect upon them, while I answer a question I get asked quiteContinue reading “Energized Through Tenacity”

Tenacity Comes From Within

I’ll admit this one has taken me a while to pull together. I first became inspired by the topic just before Thanksgiving and then sat down no fewer than eight times to put it together.  So I can testify this is a very recent lesson I’ve been called to explore, that I’ll share with youContinue reading “Tenacity Comes From Within”


Is it just me, or did this week just fly by? As we transcended another month as well and even were visited by a prognosticating rodent it was another busy week here at “Becoming Today”. Taking a look back, I feel like doing it in reverse from our normal reviews. So beginning with the end,Continue reading “Already?”

Looking In Our Mirror

Over the past now more than two years we’ve had discussions on how to  Free Yourself. We spoke about finding freedom, from burdens, limitations, false beliefs and freeing ourselves to be “Becoming Today”. Let’s now through our lens of viewing things within, explore these concepts in a refreshed perspective. Finding the freedom to renew, rejuvenateContinue reading “Looking In Our Mirror”

Renewing Your Perspective

Another month is coming to an end here at Becoming Today and looking ahead I am declaring February to be a month of Renewal.
