#RSPT 2015 Goals Update

June is quickly approaching... (all ready).  Before we know it, Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October) will be here, we will blink, and we will be getting ready to ring in the New Year while setting resolutions or goals for 2016.

This Sunday's Reflection... (05-17-15)

Thursday I had a meltdown.  The anger and the frustration that I felt was something I haven't for a long time.  I began to shut down and the level of "IDGAF" that I was experiencing almost enabled me to walk straight out the door before my shift was over, only to look back to turn in my uniforms.

May 2015 DV Awareness ~ Bonnie's Story

Bonnie's DV Survivor Story


My story spans several decades and two marriages. I have been free and clear from toxic relationships since 2010, married the most wonderful man I’ve ever met in 2014, and am living as the strong mother of a 16-year-old son, and Founder and Owner of Light Within, LLC - a coaching company I started to help women like me find empowerment and freedom!

#SocialMedia Saturday 05-09-15

You, too can wish Alise Leslie "Happy Birthday" by subscribing to her blog, submitting a guest post, or purchasing her poetry collection, jumbled.  I considered using that post as my " #SocialMedia Saturday" submission, however, I have decided to include that instead.  

Happy Birthday... Alise Leslie

This week I am scheduled 74 hours.  SEVENTY-FOUR.  In ONE week.  I have been working a lot of hours lately and I have committed myself to overtime throughout the entire month of May.  It is by God's grace alone that I am still standing today and able to (hopefully) formulate a complete sentence.

Last week I worked 72 hours and then I felt horrible on Monday and part of Tuesday.  My body was SCREAMING, "I NEED REST!!!" I muddled through my work days on Wednesday and Thursday; daydreaming of calling off sick both days.  The inflammation in my body was still unbearable by Friday so I pulled back the shades and rested.  I took time out for myself, made some much needed decisions, didn't answer any calls, didn't blog, and I didn't feel guilty about it.
