Stop Saying, "I'm Fine" (when really, you’re not).

How many times have you heard that? I’m Fine! Many of us use that line as a replacement for “Hello?” I’m here to tell you…Stop saying you’re fine when you’re not! Don’t be afraid to ask for help! “It’s easy to sit in the cheap seats and say that Ms. Zipporah"… and you’re right. But guess what? I’m older now and somewhat wiser. I'm at the point in my life where I've learned, I don’t have to sit in the cheap seats all the time (unless I choose to, because sometimes the cheap seats aren't bad. It's a choice), and I don’t have to say,“ I’m fine,” when I’m not (that too is a choice). So, why is it so hard to ask for help? The simple answer: We don’t want to look weak.

About Me

Hi, my name is Ms. Zipporah. I'm a wife, mother, full-time Administrative Assistant, and writer. I’m involved in volunteer work with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. Touching the lives of others in a special way is rewarding to me. I love Swedish fish, sunflower seeds, and a Zumba workout - I welcome challenges. When inspired to write, I throw a handful of seeds in my mouth and get cracking.


I look for every opportunity to encourage others. I'm a people person - always trying my best to greet everyone I meet with a smile. Including you. Why? It’s contagious!


As I take you along on this journey, we'll make a few pit stops and go back in time when things were simple. I'll share a thought or two. Touch your heart -maybe pull at your heartstrings. Maybe I'll move you to tears. My Goal is to inspire my readers. Are you ready?


On occasion, you'll read something on my blog, nod in agreement (or not), and blurt out a belly aching laugh. I see you rolling your eyes saying, "She's crazy." Guilty! Not the first time I've heard that. I guarantee it will not be the last.


"Ms. Zipporah's Pen - The Heart That Writes!" My writing style - Transcribed from my head and HEART. Meaning - I’m coming from a place of love. "Give it to me Straight - No Chaser," I'll love and appreciate you forever. I admire and respect honesty. Allow me to worry about my feelings.


My Grandmother always said, "If you love me, then you’ll tell me the truth." Words I live by.


At the end of the day, my hope is that you leave my blog with one or more of the following:

  •  I had fun

  • I laughed

  • I cried

  • I felt encouraged or inspired

  • I enjoyed what I read


Again, I ask, "are you ready for the ride?" You don't need anything. Climb aboard. I'll provide all of your necessities.


If any of this strikes a chord with you, please, join me, and feel free to share your thoughts after.


Thanks for stopping by.
