    I Feel

    that the older I get the more angry I get. There's a frustration about life. You begin to look at yourself harder, and hate yourself more. You grow frustrated, and have less patience. Growing up is just not fun. It's all work and rarely no play. You grow tired. And all...

    Effort.

    The key to any successful relationship comes down to one thing: Effort. Both people need to put effort in. It can't be one person always making the phone calls. It can't be one person always doing the inviting. It can't be one person always sending the emails out. There...

    If I Had My Life To Live Over...

    If I had my life to live over, I would have stayed in softball and pushed my mom more to allow me. I would have been okay with myself and pursued my interest in photography at a younger age. I wouldn't have thrown so much of myself into work. I would have dated more...

    Response To Life As A Woman

    I liked the story about "Life as a Woman." It was very heart warming and normally would be true in the progression from girl to womanhood. I am a woman in my 50 now and dealt with many challenges and ups and downs throughout my phase from girl to womanhood. As a very young girl...

    Embracing The Woman Body...

    I always thought I was ugly growing up so I barely paid any attention to my body. I remember when my boobs first started to come in. And I wore my first training bra. Even then, I didn't really embrace my body. I just felt, "my boobs are small compared to everyone else." I...

    Confidence.

    Confidence is an attractive quality. I guess, for me, when I think of confidence, I think of how a person truly presents themselves. When they truly know themselves, they are confident. I admire those that can say whatever is on their mind. I admire those that don't hold back...

    So.. I'm weird, I'm quirky. I'm an introvert but long to be deeply connected with people. However, I find myself so different from the majority of people. For example, I like football, but I'm not a diehard football fan. I could go without it :) For example, I understand...

    It's like the past is just a dream. what happened in the beginning was so magical, but it always fades, it always goes away. People change, people adapt, and then their real selves come out. The person I am today is no longer the same. I have become jaded, I have become...
