Winning My Battle With Anxiety
Winning My Battle With Anxiety   by Ellen M. DuBoisWinning My Battle With AnxietyI was very outgoing as a child. I'd put on plays in front of my parents, sing to records and put on shows. I was like that all through both elementary school and high school. Nothing scared me and my aspirations were high.I began college as a Theater major and switched midstream to a Communications major. I pictured myself as the next big 'News Anchor'. I'd even auditioned at the Connecticut School of...

Fear is Faith Inverted
Fear is Faith Inverted   by Ellen M. DuBoisThe first thing to come to mind at this moment is this saying: Fear is Faith inverted. I think there's a lot of truth to that.I have a lot of faith and it's carried me through some of the rockiest times of my life. But, I'm human and I feel, cut, bleed and cry like the rest of us. And, no matter how much faith I have, there are those moments when I simply "lose it" and am scared out of my mind. It feels like all my faith is gone.Thank God that after...

And It Snowed
And It Snowed   by Ellen M. DuBois was driving home from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping and errands and it began to snow. The roads were becoming slick and I exercised caution. My focus was on my driving -- and not ending up in the trunk of the car ahead of me.I was tense from the running, from the errands and everything else that all too often masks our happiness. All I could think about was getting home. I was tired.I don't know why it hit me, but as I approached a stop light, I...

Don't Let Your Balloon POP!
Don't Let Your Balloon POP!   by Ellen M. DuBoisI've come to the conclusion that it's okay to be "not fine." When people ask me how I'm doing lately, I don't rattle off a list of complaints and observations, sad feelings and grievances - as a matter of fact, I just might say, "I'm okay." However, I admit that within myself things are NOT fine and try to work through the feelings that creates.I don't need to share with others all of the time. It's good to vent to a friend and I don't discount...

Finding Joy in Christmas- When Everything 'Feels' Wrong
Finding Joy in Christmas- When Everything 'Feels' Wrong   by Ellen M. DuBoisThe year 2001 proved to be a life altering one. Barring our own personal problems which already may have had you in a state of despair, the attack on America left the nation- the world- in a state of sadness, disbelief and hopelessness.As we are surrounded by the sites and sounds of Christmas, many of us show a bittersweet smile while gazing at lovely Christmas lights or hearing a children's choir. We feel guilty for...

Even in the Movies
Even in the Movies    by Ellen M. DuBoisThe other night, I watched the movie "The Family Man" starring Nicholas Cage. I enjoyed it very much, although that's not intended to be my point.The story takes place in two locations: New Jersey and New York. When Cage's character takes his wife to New York City for dinner, the camera shows a shot of the city's sky line. Fiction quickly turned to non-fiction.What a strange, ominous feeling. I was relaxing and suddenly I was reminded of what no longer...

Books As A Life Saver
Books As A Life Saver   by Ellen M. DuBoisI cannot take credit for writing this, for I am only sharing with you something I found today. It is a very old page, worn and yellowed, from "The New Republic" dated December 8, 1917. What struck me about this article are two things: 1. The letter from the gentleman, and 2. The extreme importance of books to soldiers overseas. The article states that the two most important things soldiers desired were "tobacco and BOOKS". It seems that then, just as...

Coincidence or Craziness? You Tell Me!
Coincidence or Craziness? You Tell Me!   by Ellen M. DuBoisSometimes something drives you to do something. Call it a hunch, a feeling or just plain gut instinct. Maybe messengers from the Divine leading you somewhere. I don't really know.This article is going to bounce a bit from here to there. As I continue with my research, I will be adding to it. Please bear with me...My Grandmother, Marion Thompson Morin was a Broadway star who made her debut in "Fifty Million Frenchmen" while still a...

All My Love And Devotion: A True Story  
All My Love And Devotion: A True Story   by Ellen M. DuBoisThey met at a dance in 1931, and six months later, on January 30, 1932, were married. I am speaking of my Nana and Pop, (grandparents), who for sixty years were not just married, but were in love. Really IN LOVE.I have chronicled their love through some very touching cards, (I found them in a box, tucked away with a lifetime of memories), that were shared between them before and after my father was born. Most are from my Grandfather to...

To Be an American  
To Be an American   by Ellen M. DuBoisWhen I was a little girl, we stood in class with our hands held over our hearts and said the Pledge of Allegiance. I never thought much about it as it was part of a daily 'routine'. I don't even think I comprehended what it meant. Patriotism, until September 11, 2001, was just a word to me. I knew I loved my country and was thankful to live here, but being an American didn't evoke the feelings within me that it does today.Today, I think I know for the...
