thoughts jotted down with a few pictures thrown in for my amusement (yeah that's a good title 'cause I couldn't think of one)

As time goes on our thinking evolves.  Our ideas about things change and so do our perspectives.  There are some things I just don’t believe anymore…. and plenty of things I do.

I just don’t have to have the latest gadget.  I’ve grown to relax over some things in life.   Just going into the Apple store recently was fun… and quite interesting in its busy-ness.  But I value simplicity more and just want to slow down.

I don’t need everyone to think the same as me or believe the same as I do.  I used to want to argue my point much more than I do today.  I just don’t care anymore.  Maybe that’s good… or maybe it’s not ….

Just because someone who looks or sounds intelligent says or writes something it doesn’t mean it’s true.  Degrees don’t necessarily equal the type of intelligence I admire or respect.

That I need to try the newest diet product, weight-loss pill, super food, meal plan, exercise routine, or miracle drink… each of which costs lots of money and is making someone rich and most of us (still) FAT.  Eat less and move more is now my motto and what I want to strive for each day.


That God wants to give us everything we pray for.  He can’t; He loves us too much. He doesn’t always give us what we want but gives us what we need.  I have more questions than answers but if He created me He must know what is best for me.  My greatest prayer is for faith to believe.

That no one can manipulate my emotions if I don’t want them to.  I’m not enslaved to the media or TV news shows to dictate how I am going to think or feel any given day.  Even if the worst does happen I will go on living the best life I can.

That just because someone calls themselves Christian doesn’t mean they are.  I have judged some wonderful people over the years because they didn’t fit into my very narrow mold at the time. 

Republicans are not more moral or “right” than anyone else.   I find myself in the middle most of the time and wish people would work together more.


There are all shapes of people in the world and none are better than others.  I’ve spent way too much time in my life fretting over my body image and judging others accordingly… and it’s robbed  me of joy I could have otherwise had! 

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. ~Judy Garland

  1. I always love your thoughts Kathi. I like what you said about republicans thinking they are more right or moral and how you said you feel more in the middle. I feel the same way - I don't want to be on either side really.

    I too have been sitting with the realization that God can't give us everything we want or pray for because He has loved me too much. He wanted me story to be bigger than that. It's kind of blown my world open....
