    Getting Back to Healthy

      February 8, 2008, as I walked along the street to pick my children up from school I took in the warm air and thought back to the happier days of a fit body and a clearer mind.  I have moved 1500 miles across a country, I decided to go back to college to do what I...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    There is euphoria in finding lost things. Ever lose your car keys? It's infuriating. Wallet? A hassle. This week we lost my 6 year old's library book. In fact, since I have moved, most everyday items are...lost, for now anyway. The unpacking is not going so well. Not...

    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...

    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.

    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.
