A friend and I have been helping each other out with a few things. We have been helping each other for a little while now, and he was supposed to hook me up 3 weeks ago as well as last week, but fell through again. That is the edited version of the situation. When he was not able to reciprocate […]

Man, was I hot a few weeks ago! These people from Esurance, an Allstate company; had me hoppin’ mad! Most of my day was spent addressing this nonsense they tried to pull on me. I’m sure this trap was the brain child of Allstate. It was clear that this is their standard process; part of their normal policy, and used […]
I’ve decided to start this as a new series. The reasons have to do with something that happened recently. Actually, the story really began several weeks ago with a crazy patient that came to me at work. First, I have to say that this person’s general appearance was rather startling. From his height, to his hair color; […]
The ability to create images like this will make for beautiful holiday memories. Photographs are permanent collections of our memories. While memories may fade, just pulling out your favorite photobook can mentally teleport you back to that special day with your child, loved one, family member, or friends. With just a glance, you’ll…
It may seem late to be posting on thankfulness. After all, Thanksgiving passed a few weeks ago, but I think every day should be a day of thankfulness. We should actively seek something in our day that we are thankful for. Lately, I’ve been seriously contemplating something that I heard in my Thursday night bible study group. I […]
The right connections are so important. Only this morning my computer has decided it no longer likes my modem and refuses to connect meanwhile chasing down other wireless opportunities in my area. How often is our own life like that? We have a connection…
If you get an email with a title like ‘Don’t Ever Trust Me Again!’ and continues along the lines of ‘… then you don’t have to take my advice ever again!’ My advice is – Don’t * Perhaps it’s because I’m skeptical of the number of “miracle” products, “great…
My son says I have an addiction. Now, I’m sure you are wondering what this could have to do with time management, because most business-minded people ascribe to the notion that playing games, either online, or on tablet or phone, is time-wasting; and has nothing at all to do with time management, especially if that […]
Recently, I’ve had problems with two companies whose policies look eerily familiar. First, let’s talk about AAA. For those living outside the US, AAA is a company that supplies roadside assistance when automobiles breakdown. They have also expanded into the insurance and possibly the travel markets, and offer these additional services to their customers at discounts. What […]
As some of my readers may be aware, I had started “Sandy’s Slim Down, Shake Up” Journey Journal at the beginning of this year; in an effort to make myself more accountable in my attempts to better regulate my health and dietary as well as physical exercise habits. After all, I’m a massage therapist, having knowledge […]
The hind quarters of a donkey. Yes, that is what I was a few days ago. And afterwards, I felt like such a heel. I was immediately convicted about my own selfishness and personal prejudices. It was awful and made me realize that my heart needs a lot of cleaning up. What did I do, […]
As I’m sure many of my readers know by now, I am a massage therapist. Recently, I went through another God trial, meant to build me in Christ and make me stronger. Up to now, when tested, and the water in the desert dried up, there was always a constant stream that was available, but […]
I felt the need to explain, because as some of you are aware, I have been somewhat absent…floating periodically, intermittently here for a few moments, but not in concentrated form. I’m somewhat fluid at the moment, but that is how I have to be. When you are out on a limb, holding on for dear […]
- Strong or Restricted Muscle: Which Type Do You Have?This is what its all about, right? This is what the media and the fitness world tell us is the in, fashionable, and accepted physical look. It’s what’s “hot.” Eye-candy, right? And, while I don’t deny the hotness of this look (or this model), there is a limit I would put on it. As a […]
- 10 Reasons Why Morning Walks are Important for your HealthYes, I know. It sucks that you have to wake up early as it is, for school, for office, without having to go for a walk too! But trust me when I say that if you could just put the laziness aside and go for a morning walk every day, your body and…
- Bridge Over Troubled WatersJust a short post today…more of a quote than a post to be precise. “The next time someone walks over you think of yourself as a bridge that helped them get to whatever place it was that they were going; they were the weak one needing something to tread…
- Are You A Selfie?Recently, a client of mine was late to her appointment with me. Now, aside from the fact that the continual, habitual lateness of this person is inconsiderate; what’s more annoying is the series of justifications she gives in an effort to garner sympathy for her own decisions. First she claimed that the traffic was the […]
- Understanding the Variables of PainTo understand why you have pain there are several variables to examine. In order to change the patterns that are causing your pain problems, you first have to understand that you came to the table, so to speak, with a preexisting pain pattern. This occurred long before you became conscious of the pain; and long […]

- The Problem of NeuropathyI have several clients with Neuropathy in their feet. I’ve had other clients that had it in their arms and fingers. One in particular was formerly a drummer and a bowler, and was quite upset that she could neither drum nor bowl any longer because of lack of feeling in her hands. She had been undergoing a […]
- Mr. BojanglesA day or two before the Crooked Man arrived, another senior gentleman with a similar problem arrived. He came with one of those walkers with the seat on it. He was leaning on it really hard as he came in the doors of the office where I work. As slim as he was, one would think […]
- The Crooked Man That Walked The Crooked MileWhen this 60+ year old gentleman came to see me, I discovered that he had apparently been living in the condition he was in for quite a number of years. His body looked almost mangled to some degree. He was torqued on the front left side of the hip, so he leaned down on that […]
- Choosing The Right TherapistThere is much about the massage industry that the general public does not understand. My issue with this is that instead of doing more to educate the public, the massage industry has been taken over by corporations whose main concern is their financial bottom line. As such, instead of educating, they promote ignorance by insisting […]
- The Labyrinth of Relationships: Wrestling With ForgivenessThere was an incident that started this ball rolling and all of this introspection I am now doing. If you haven't read this article yet, you should read it first prior to continuing to read what I am now writing, because it will give you a good picture of why I am where I am now. Aside […]
- The Labyrinth of Relationships: The Attitude of EntitlementPeople are so self serving. I too, am probably guilty of this in some circumstances, to some degree. The degree to which I always find this demonstrated however, is as an extreme example, usually due to some person's failure to perform properly due to some set standard; whether in society, culture, or by rule or […]
- Dream Journal – Day 1 The Spirit World and Your Destiny Part 16Dan 1:3 ¶ And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring [certain] of the children of Israel, and of the king's seed, and of the princes;Dan 1:4 Children in whom [was] no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, […]
- The Labyrinth of Relationships: The Far Side of Customer ServiceYesterday, as my son and I were on our way home; me from the job, and him from the library; a surprising incident took place. We were on a side road from the highway, I-595. We were traveling eastbound, and this side road can lead you from the city roads onto the highway, or to […]
