Resigning my control of the Agency of others

I think I'm on to something. All these years I needed to resign as the self-imposed General Manager of the Universe. I named my blog after my self-imposed title as a tongue-in-cheek, humorous to only me, title. But what I didn't realize was that God inspired this title as a lesson. I'm finally listening. For… Continue reading Resigning my control of the Agency of others

Resigning From Stress

At the first of April I actually resigned from something! The title of my blog has been resigningasthegeneralmanageroftheuniversity for years and yet I never resigned from anything. If anything, I took on more things! But this year was the year. I resigned. It's a long story, and not appropriate for this blog, however, I can… Continue reading Resigning From Stress

Always Remember

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” —Joseph Campbell. Today is Memorial Day. Sadly, most of the people I know think of it as National BBQ Day. They didn't meet my Grandpa who served in Europe during WWII. They didn't meet Great Grandpa who died (as… Continue reading Always Remember

Experiencing Joy

Last week the missionaries came over for dinner. After dinner they shared a short message and asked these questions, "What is joy to you and in what ways have you experienced joy?" The answer that came out of my mouth surprised me because they were words I had not previously formed or contemplated. My experiences… Continue reading Experiencing Joy

New Year… New Thoughts

I saw this quote today and thought, it might be time to dust off the blog and to start again. 2022 was not what I would call "a walk-in-the-park." In fact, it was rough. So many things and no desire to remember them for posterity. This quote is a good reminder that I CHOOSE what… Continue reading New Year… New Thoughts

Not the summer I expected…

This has been an odd summer. I planned on leisurely floating my pool most days and completing a couple projects. Instead, I worked 12 hour days on a little summer show for the first week out of school. Then there was the 4th of July parade, followed by some time with a grand daughter. At… Continue reading Not the summer I expected…


one small step

There's a well-known Chinese proverb that says, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Sadly, far too many people never get started on that journey. Fear keeps them from learning, from moving forward, and making big changes to reach their destination. Life is an adventure, however, things we want are rarely… Continue reading one small step


Be Where Your Feet Are

I have been working on mindfulness lately. It's a process. Mindfulness is difficult because it involves a willingness to be with ourselves as we are. It offers a way of learning to work with ourselves, and not on ourselves, especially if you are healing from perfectionism. I am discovering that this is one of my… Continue reading Be Where Your Feet Are
