    I don't know if I can take it anymore.

    It's a lot of verbal and physical abuse in the home to the point where I feel it's not safe here for me. But I have four wonderful siblings that despite the fact get on my nerves, I can't leave. At least not yet. But it gets so much sometimes. I'm not sure whether if I can...

    Go Confidently In The Direction Of Your Dreams!

    I am finding myself at a crossroads. Currently I am at a stand still, and I really need to move. I'm blocking the road. I had been traveling along my road, there were the normal twists and turns. A few speed bumps, a pot hole here and there, even a couple of detours. But I...

    The Road Less Traveled.........

    How often we must bear the challenges of life; The endless roller coaster between happiness and sorrow; The constant ups and downs of daily strife. And always the question remains .... why? Life is not an easy road for most; It twists and turns with many forks...

    I think that there is always choices in our lives and we stop to wonder where will I be when I get to the end of this road?   But our choices that are being made may not affect the today but in the future, it is always dramatic when we look at a side by side...

    The Power Of Now - Part 1

    I've Been Here Before

    I don't know if where I am now actually qualifies as a crossroads anymore. I know what my choice is going to be. The hesitation is really for the people around us. Still I could just go on as it is now so, in that sense, I guess crossroads is the term. Let's just hope that...

    Decision

    I think the crossroads are never far away.  But sometimes they are very objectively there because we stand in the middle.  We're passing from one stage in life to another and we have to take decisions.  Even not taking them is a way to decide.   Recently...
