    Wow I Like That Person In The Mirror

    Well let's face it we all age. It is one of the many things that bonds us together and makes us strong. Well this last birthday has made me evaluate myself and I like that person in the mirror. Life changes and we all grow and look back on parts of our life that we may miss. I...

    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.

    Eureka

    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...

      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...

    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...

    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.

    Jung At Heart

    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.

    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...

    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...
