We {Real Talk Tuesday}

hold hands m davidson 2014I am me.  You are you.  Together we’re stronger.  It’s true.

But really!  There is power in the “we”.  I am a conservative person, reserved, and very guarded.  I don’t always easily trust people.  I wait till I can trust them before I share the realities of living in the right-now life.  I’m okay with that.  It’s part of my process, but living in community, whether online or in real life, calls for intentional connection person-to-person.   Continue reading We {Real Talk Tuesday}

Something of Worth {Thoughtful Thursday}

worth it marvia davidsonFind goodness in the everyday mundane. I think this where some of the best inspiration comes from – those unsung moments. You know the ones. They take you by surprise. They offer unexpected hope. They breathe into you and cause you to inhale a deep, cleansing breath. Sometimes we don’t have to look for the goodness. It just shows up. A sparkle of joy shines like a diamond in the rough of the day.

I found such beauty in the ordinary, everyday, mundane yesterday. It was a black wall, beginning to blossom with words of life, courage, and empowerment. A co-worker came and hustled three of us outside. She was so excited.

“I want you guys to come see something. It will inspire you. It will only take 5 minutes.”
