The cauldron of advice

Advice. How do you know what to say? How do you know what to receive? I have reached out for advice every time I’ve been floundering in the past while.  Except I haven’t really meant it most of the time.  Because, actually, I am a big fat stubborn force-shield to advice. Star Trek “Shields fully … Continue reading “The cauldron of advice”

Diem Carping

Such a lot of fun to be had, squished in to every possible minute. Yes, my life could recently have made it into a low-budget daytime soap storyline or a novel with large font on low-grade paper. But it’s still epic. The last few sort-of-a-bit-miserable posts have maybe been misleading. When I am miserable, I … Continue reading “Diem Carping”

Which fruit are you?

From watermelon, to raspberry, to peach. Here we have the various fruit-guises of Sunny Carter. Some may find this comical, as well may you know that I am not strictly a 5-a-day fruit and veg person.

I think anyone who reads the Bible a lot ends up with a set of rules they decide God is really hot on. Even though we go … Continue reading “How the word ‘obedience’ stopped being a slap in the face with a wet fish”

Why I’m not giving anything up for Lent

The reason isn’t because I have the willpower of a gnat. Although that is true. I suffer from depression and grief. Or, I battle with it. That’s more accurate. Events of life made my soul fall in a hole a couple of years ago, and I’m still unable to climb out of it. But I’m … Continue reading “Why I’m not giving anything up for Lent”

Why Life on a Pedalo?

Life on a pedalo is the most excellent tagline that my friend Gail came up with for my life. She is a coach and it was very weird having a life-coaching session with a very good friend. Very embarrassing when I cried a lot. But then, I cry all the time nowadays, on all sorts … Continue reading “Why Life on a Pedalo?”
