Begin Again

This Serenity Card site has sort of languished for awhile. I’ve been fulfilling orders and creating new custom designs for special orders, but not updating the site a whole lot. This is primarily because I have so many things going.  I am a multiple winner in recovery and a creative person with multiple outlets. Keeping […]

Cultivating Joy

For many many years, I have asked for guidance and the power to carry that out. For most things, especially regarding my recovery, I have responded to said guidance in whatever way that I interpreted it to be, explicitly, as best as I could. It has always “paid off” in serenity. There is one area, […]

Lifetime of 12 Step

I was 10 when my Dad discovered his own flavor of 12 step recovery. It shook up our whole family and changed all of our lives permanently. There are some great stories of back then and I may share them somewhere, somehow, sometime. The point here, though, is that I was introduced to 12 step […]

Layers

I’ve so often heard the layers of an onion analogy that it is a basic part of my understanding of life (And there are many layers to the meaning of that sentence). I believe that life experiences and the understanding of them or the ability to deal with them do come in layers as we […]

One Piece at a Time

I’m thinking all of things that I’ve taken on lately are too much. I’m feeling like I could be overwhelmed, drowned in all of the busy-ness that I have laid out for myself. Time to remember I don’t have to complete it all now. I don’t even have to complete it all tomorrow, or next […]
