Rollover to a New Way of Living – by Sabrina Fritts


Like most people, I lived a very typical life. Rushing from here to there, checking items off my list, never feeling like I accomplished anything, a life full of stress and anxiety. Awaiting a nervous breakdown while surrounded by the mounds of dirty laundry that appeared to multiply faster than bunny rabbits.

Delight in Joy Filled Giggles – by Sabrina Fritts


Mr. Wilson, one of my high school teachers, once told me that he knew whenever I was walking through the hallway because of my giggle. This didn’t embarrass me. I took it as a compliment that somehow I was singled out in his awareness from all the others vying for his attention at our all-girl Catholic School, and my giggle was to thank.

Play and Have Fun ~ Everything Gets Done – by Sabrina Fritts


When I was little, my favorite season was summer. You could find me outside from sunup to sundown and there was no pesky school to interfere with my good time. Playing brought me joy. Running, biking, and enjoying a variety of games with my neighbors was my idea of fun. When school did resume, recess was my favorite part of the day, even though it was far too short in comparison to the number of hours crammed inside sitting at a desk all day.

Everyday Magic – by Sabrina Fritts


When I was a little girl, people often associated my name with Sabrina the Teenage Witch from Archie comics. I enjoyed the association, as I felt magical. The world seemed full of possibilities and I had dreams of flying over my neighborhood, no broomstick required, free and unrestricted by human laws. I also had a black tuxedo cat, adding to the mystique.

Be a Better Human – by Sabrina Fritts


When my husband invited me on a weeklong Caribbean cruise, I emphatically said, “Yes!”
.
.
It was exactly what I needed. Caring for the needs of others is what I do best, but I sometimes neglect myself in the process. This past year and a half has been one of the most challenging for me as a mother, as my son continued on a downward spiral of self-destruction. The stress of not knowing when he’d finally reach his bottom had added up.

Go Outside and Play! – by Sabrina Fritts


“Recapture your childlike sense of wonder and awe. View the world as a magical place.”
.
Enchantment. The unicorn on the face from my angel card deck made me laugh and question if this was a cruel joke. How do I get a whiff of enchantment when life is a chore? Stress from full-time work, managing the home, and watching a loved one struggle, life seemed far from magical.

Birthing Possibilities – by Sabrina Fritts


People need to get their sh*t together. I have a grandbaby arriving soon!
.
This is not the world I envisioned for my descendants—a world where murderers threaten through guns, badges and our food supply—I fear the reality this precious one will know. Where lock-downs are common practice and terror reigns.

Come Alive with Curiosity – by Sabrina Fritts


They say curiosity killed the cat, but I believe curiosity is what makes it come alive!
.
We recently rescued a kitty. It wasn’t planned.
.
It started as an innocent errand to drop off gift certificates for a humane society fundraiser. As we got out of the car, Tabitha, my teenage daughter, informed me she would be strong for both of us and make sure I didn’t bring anything home.

The Selfish Side to Charity – by Sabrina Fritts


Charity. For some reason this word makes me uncomfortable. Perhaps it’s because I automatically think of the donation of time and/or money to those in need. This conjures feelings of guilt for not having enough of either one to make a real difference. Maybe it’s because I don’t want to be seen as someone who needs a hand.
