    The Explorer's Path

    Last night I had a nightmare. In it, I was writing another tedious email to someone who wouldn't leave me alone or forgive me in real life. I was responding to another one of his emails over "love" mistakes I made in the past when out of the blue he jumped up and grabbed me...

    Process of Reinvention (part Deux)

    I allowed myself to emerge from my past relationship emotional issues last week. It wasn’t the most comforting time, sinking so low, but I saw that I really do love myself and that I over-compromised far too much for others, that I had allowed people to impose on me because I...

    Who Will I Become?

    I have been given an opportunity that not many people have...the chance to change. A recent experience has caused me to re-examine who I am and what I am all about. I have discovered things about myself that I never knew before. I am going through these changes and I am so...

    Finding My True Self

    My true self is funny, confident, and caring.   I'm not shy, that isn't who I am.  I was taught at an early age that children are to be see and not heard.  Then my ex would out talk me if I tried to say anything.  I was always wrong, or he just didn't listen to me.  There...

    I cant say I'm liking the 'growing up' part.

    Not right now, atleast. I'm coming to terms with certain things, and preparing myself to face the real world. I have always been a dreamy person. Dreamt of playing about on beaches on islands all day long. Living on the countryside, in a tent maybe, and cooking and roasting my...

    A Year Of Firsts Continues

    I find myself drawn to this experience group even more than the Recently Widowed group. As my Year of Firsts continue I find experiences are more about change and becoming a new person. I know the hardest "firsts" are yet to come. As I get ready to accept another birthday, it...

    Seriously Exceeding Expectations

    With age comes wisdom. Sure. I’ll accept that. You live and you have experiences. Yes. Now, if you are able to categorize and store the facts that you glean from those experiences, you can then probably parlay those little tidbits into what some might consider useful...

    Meditation

    If you read my stories, you might notice that I no longer write hurtful, hateful things about myself. I am happy by myself and no longer NEED  anyone. I think meditating regularly has helped me overcome some of the issues I had. With more and regular meditation routine, I know I...

    Almost There

    I've been forced to change who I am multiple times in my life, and it takes time for me to figure out who I am again. It seems that the cycle is that I get emotionaly hurt and than depressed and than try to pretend like I'm happy by going out and drink at a bar. That's happened...

    The Art Of Reinvention

    Humbugginess Be Gone

    "It's just a thought, and thoughts can be changed." I forget which self-help book I read that in, but that's actually a good thought to remember. I guess the same can be said of states of mind as well. Holidays are difficult for me, as they are for most people who have...

    Changing Changes Stuff (and It Ain't Always Pretty)

    I am growing into a new person. Have been discreetly changing mentally and physically over the past year or so, and am, at 40, ready to live my life the way I've always wanted to, not according to how some book (some church, some husband, some society) says I should live. I've...

    Because its all about EP,

    EP, No Real Life. Its a slow and awkward process, but I really do think that putting myself out there here has allowed me to connect with people as a new person, one not hindered by physical realities or life experiences. The result, while not a "real" new person, is the...

    Swinging

    I walked a lot today. I walked mostly alone, sometimes with my dog, and I did some good thinking while I was out there.I've changed, good or bad I guess depends upon whom you ask. I doesn't matter though, what anyone else thinks. Ultimately I have to live with me, in this head...

    For me, there is always some change in myself,

    hopefully in a positive direction but truthfully, not always good. Continually trying to see more, think bigger, do better. Struggling to find the spot I feel I need to be at. The place that feels like it's mine, where comfort, strength, love of self and productivity with...

    No More "Life Of Riley"

    I always felt I "lived the life of Riley". I worked part time, could get off when I needed to be somewhere else or just wanted to be somewhere else. I was not the bread winner in the family and I loved not having the responsibility and just leaned on Tracy. He was a great guy to...
