Life As An INFP- Part 1

I always knew I was different. From a very young age I felt deeply, I noticed beauty in a person, a flower, a hug. I was tentative with my relationships while I waited…I watched …I observed. I took it all in and was extremely reflective, while taking in the big picture of every situation. IfContinue reading “Life As An INFP- Part 1”

Who Are You?

Have you ever met someone and spoken effortlessly for hours as if you’d known them all of your life? The conversation was easy and endless and the commonalities obvious.

The Stages of a Relationship

Remember that giddy, heady feeling when your heart skips a bit from sheer anticipation? Your thoughts are swirling deliciously with every sensory experience reenacting itself repeatedly in your mind.

Our Love Story

I have always been fascinated by a couple’s love story. I want to hear every facet they share with me! How do two people find each other in a world of over 7.5  billion people? How do you know who and when it is right? How did it all begin? Bob and I each recalledContinue reading “Our Love Story”

March 2020 (Change)

Some moments or days, I wake up feeling sad or empty. I think of what we have lost and not knowing when it will end. Is it days, weeks, months, or years? Time lost that will never be recovered. Time that we no longer have the luxury of losing. Time that we have earned toContinue reading “March 2020 (Change)”

The Authentic Self

Finding Yourself I grew up in the 1960s and 1970s.  In my teens, everyone spoke about “finding myself” or “searching for myself.”  What did that term actually mean? They spoke of traveling to different countries for that search. Of course, I learned we were all like Dorothy, in The Wizard of Oz with our rubyContinue reading “The Authentic Self”
