    Always

    I will always be a work in progress.  I don't see how I could ever think I was "done".    There's always more to learn.    More to read.   More to listen to.    More to see.    More to experience. I'm...

    A Never Ending Journey

    My progress will not deplete until the day I am dead. I consider myself getting off to a good start as to where I am now, for my age, and I can only see myself getting better in the future. Right now, as I write this, I am reflecting on a conversation I had earlier in the evening...

    I'm not here to be your 'bestie',

    your latest, or your crew, I'm here for me, I'm not here simply for you. When I'm done working it out, I'm sure that someone will see, I telling you that the first one better be me. I've been around, and I'll be filtered through. I'll tell you now that I'll shine brighter...

    I joined this group because the title is

    so true. I am sitting here in my home getting ready to run out for errands which will keep me busy most of the day. That's a good thing because I need to get out for a bit for I have been sitting here, ruminating on relationships most of the morning. Relationships rarely fail...

    Just Bad To The Core

    For the past two days I'm constantly rehashing my stupidity , seeing my flaws , asking God for forgiveness. The one thing I have not let go of is my sister and brothers absence from my life. The distance they have for me. I so long for some closure as the pity parlor has been...

    It's March 9th, and I'm trying.

    I'm keeping all those bad thoughts away, letting only the good ones in. I'm learning how to take compliments, because accepting one isn't terrible at all. I'm teaching myself to move on, those toxic relationships are absolute garbage. It's March 9th, and guess what? I'm feeling...

    The Progress May Be Slow But It Is Goin....i Swear!

    We as a society, have an instant gratification attitude, don't you think? It is, at times, more important to get to the goal while not paying attention to the lessons along the way as well as the growth that we all have the opportunity to accept. We want what we want now not...

    Things are going really good at the moment.

    I've changed my mindset, I'm more active. I've learned that being more social is okay, and it's really nice to be more open, I feel really free, as silly as it sounds. I've let go of things I can't change, things that won't matter in the matter of months, and I've stopped...

    A few months ago I was in a very dark place,

    exhausted, stressed to breaking point, and manically depressed. I totally lost sight of what was important and ended up alienating and hurting the feelings of people dear to me. I am now in a much better place and a much more positive frame of mind than I was in back then, and...
