Time

When I get home from work every night, everything goes so fast, but when I’m at my job, the hours just drag by.  I love my job, but I like MY time too. I know time is precious and so I don’t like the idea of “I can’t wait until Friday”, “Is it 5:00 yet?”,

Grateful for Others

I am not the most social person and it is uncomfortable for me to be in groups of people. I prefer a more intimate conversation with those I wish to be with. However, this weekend, I went outside of my comfort zone and ended up going to the Arts Festival in Amarillo. I had a

Everyone Has a Story

Today when you come across another human being, realize that they, too, have a story. We can learn something from anyone, how to survive, to thrive, to live a full life and what not to do with our lives. Everyone has a choice but we don’t always have the choice to choose what happens to

Spring

This is my favorite part of the year when things start to bloom and the landscape becomes covered with the aspect of different colors and varieties of the wonderful things that Mother Earth provides us. It is amazing to me that you can plant a seed and it grows into something to eat or to

Rainy Days

Rainy days are good to reconnect with yourself…to sit and read a book with the window open slightly. The smell of rain not only relaxes the body and mind but it also is a gift from Mother Earth. It is renewal, it is refreshing, it is life giving and makes the whole earth smile. I

Anxiety

Anxiety is a funny thing. I think it plays with us from time to time. It produces a chemical in our body that creates unrest, hopelessness and frustration that something is just not right. We can’t put our finger on it, but all day long it nags at us like a little brother who keeps

Little Victories

Reactions determine our destiny, not the things that happen to us. I must admit, I am a reactionary. I react to situations before I give myself time to process what just happened. Usually, it is not good. I either end up assuming,  taking things personally or just reacting badly…internally.  Yesterday I was parked up against

Justice

Today caused reflection for me about my past. It caused me to reflect on what is right with this world and what is wrong. Sometimes I don’t feel like I belong in this world of ours. My views are so different from what is happening all around me. I spoke with Animal Control today about

Hope

After surviving 43 years of abuse, I used to feel hopeless and alone. Nothing was being done about the abuse, no one saw it or if they did, they ignored it. There were signs, there always is. What gave me hope was being optimistic about my world in the best way I could, even where

Courtesy

Today’s topic is “courtesy”. I love dogs, however, irresponsible dog owners…not so much. I have been having to put up with a neighbor’s dog a few houses from mine bark incessantly for hours at a time. I am SO annoyed at the lack of courtesy people have for one another. How can someone NOT hear

The Body

Our bodies are amazing aren’t they? They take our abuse, our self-loathing for not being skinny enough, tall enough, pretty enough and they take our “take for granted” attitude and still keep it’s attention on keeping us alive and breathing. At the end of the day or the end of our lives, our bodies remain

Gratitude

Today, I find myself feeling gratitude for all that surrounds me…another breath, another chance to do better, another moment to cherish. I logged on to my website this weekend to make a few changes and logged off feeling proud of myself, until I wanted to share the site with someone hours later only to realize

Ahhh

Posted by Tammy Stamps Ahhh…that is what I said after I completed my list of things to do today that I fretted about last night. I fretted enough that I had adrenaline in my chest. Stupid things, things that really were not life changing. I tried to talk my body into listening to my mind,
