    Unwritten Letter #1

    I am alone. Well, almost. I have lost most of my friends from the past years. Not that they have proven themselves to be phony but that it's just life happening. My life needed them before and they needed me as well to fill a space in their lives and to help them become better...

    Learned So Much In My 20's

    I'm in my late 20's, 28 to be exact, and when I look back on those 28 years, I think I learned the most about myself from the ages of 20 to 28. My emotional understanding, my creative energy (I'm a writer), and even my sexuality were all discovered in my 20's. I recently asked...

    Just realized that when I hold my breath exhaled

    Just spent 5 minutes looking myself in the

    mirror. I wasn't looking at everything I hated or everything that made me upset. The only thing I was looking at was me. I was looking at the pain and hurt that is beneath my skin. I then looked deeper and didn't recognize this strong independent woman standing there. All I saw...

    The Willingness To Learn Is Discovering For Me

    Observing the movement of life with silence (of mind) we have no burdens ours or others ... free to use the power of wisdom, which is to use what we know, as we live ... you can only live in the now (not the past-nor future) open to see the true or false of things as they unfold...

    Find Your Way

    It happens in the blink of an eye, but I see it coming from a mile away. It nudges with the deepest pain, and drenches me in the coldest rain. Forgetting the illuminating rays of a sunny day. Wondering why there’s no light in the words that I say. I swear there’s truth...

    And It Sucks Sometimes

    or may be more appropriately said, "Finding myself, still and discovering things again".  This is a painful process but I think I will be better for it in the end or rather, when I figure some things out.

    I Am Not The You That You Think I Am. I Am The Me That I Am.

    I am learning more about myself. I can draw. I can care about people. I can choose who I want to be with, what I want to do, who I want to portray myself as. I am not the me you want me to be. I am the Me that I Want To Be.

    Life-Long Journey

    Every time I think I've found myself, I lose me again. Every time I lose myself, I find another piece I didn't know existed. It's a constant process...a never ending journey.

    Friday

    I got the opportunity to sing in front of people last night with a band since 2006. It was the first time I wasn't nervous performing infront of others. I enjoyed it so much! It's cool to be able to do something that brought me joy in the past that is bringing me joy again.
