HOW TO SILENCE A GOSSIP!

HOW TO SILENCE A GOSSIP!

How many times have we confided in someone or multiple people, all to have one or more repeat what we entrusted them to hold dear? Time has taught me more lessons than I can count and one of the most important ones is: If you don’t want something repeated, tell God! Our secrets are safe with Him. Not only that, He is our Source that we draw our strength from. We rely upon Him to see us through the good…

FORGIVENESS!

FORGIVENESS!

It’s easier said than done. When someone mistreats us or a grave injustice has occurred, we can carry a grudge like a thirty ton weight. Eventually, the load becomes so heavy, we either flat-line over it or release ourselves from it. There really is something about forgiveness. Whomever it is, whatever it is, however it is…breathe deep, exhale and genuinely wish them well. And what you will find and feel is exhilarating and liberating. Written by Kathryn Kaufmann © June…

BURNING BRIDGES!

BURNING BRIDGES!

A friend of mine used to say repeatedly in conversations, “Don’t Burn Your Bridges.” He said it so many times, it was graffitied onto my brain. He was speaking of people in his workplace and how office politics had caused many ruffled feathers. At times he said he was tempted to get involved. But during the midst of it all, he kept quiet and stayed out of the burning heaps of gossip, backstabbing and mudslinging that was an every day…

HOW TO FIND DIRECTION!

HOW TO FIND DIRECTION!

The first thing we do when we lose or misplace keys, jewelry, important documents or valuables is reverse and retrace our steps to see if we can locate them. Life-mapping is much the same. Reflecting back to the happiest times of your life when you’re lost in the present can help you find right direction again. ~ Kat Written by Kathryn Kaufmann © June 23rd, 2018

NEVER SETTLE!

NEVER SETTLE!

Are you single? Divorced? Widowed? Never-been-married? Don’t sweat single. Life can get lonely at times, but the key is to never feel alone. One of the most valuable pieces of wisdom my Mom passed on to me was, “You can be married and miserable.” We can stay connected and plugged-in through family, friends, social outlets, social circles, work, school, volunteer jobs, travel and just being kind to strangers. It can be as complicated or as simple as you make it….

EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL…UNTIL THEY CHOOSE TO BE UGLY!

EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL…UNTIL THEY CHOOSE TO BE UGLY!

Everyone is beautiful until they choose to be ugly really goes without explanation. Outward appearances can be attractive. Men can be HAWT and so can women…in friendships, dating, relationships, marriages, politics, the workplace, places of worship, government, education, and the entertainment industry, of course. But when the temperament has a HOT flare to it and what flies out of their mouth flies back in their face, the appeal is lost. Inner beauty is what maintains an outward appearance. ~ Kat…

THE DEPTH OF SIMPLE TREASURES!

THE DEPTH OF SIMPLE TREASURES!

(Photo of my Mom and Grandmother along with the scissors and spatula that hold deep meaning to simple treasures)! Recently, I was going through family belongings when I stumbled across one out of about twenty or more boxes. The second  I opened this particular box, what was staring back at me caused me to immediately time-travel to the 1970’s. Sitting in a chair in our kitchen, I was peering over Mom’s shoulder watching her whip up her mouth-watering delicacies: Red…
