    Still Learning

    Just when I think I really know myself, a situation comes up that is a bit foreign to my way of thinking.  I usually am pretty level headed and take life as it comes.  Take time to think things through before I react as this keeps me on an even keel but I was...

    So Much Growth

    This site is my proof of that. Making me truly look at myself, who I am, what I've done, and putting it down somewhere real. Not so anybody else can see, but just so I can see. And i'm actually a little proud of who I see. I used to live in a broken home with a drug addict...

    Letting Go

    I had an affair with a woman. At the start she told me she knew what she had to do but was choosing not to. I chose not to listen and so I started an experience both painful and wonderful. Anyway, it ended because I wanted more and she was not ready. She believes she has to stay...

    I Have Come Along Way.........

    I sit and remeber my teen years and remember all that I should have or shouldn't have done, and I have no real regrets, maybe wish at times I would have put more thought into how to go about things, instead I thought I knew it all. I have accepted my faults and have learned from...

    Learning Lessons

    It has been ten months since I found EP quite by accident but now I know this was no accident at all.  I believe that when we are ready to learn a life lesson, that there will be a way opened up for us.  My stories started out as sort of a bitterness about my marriage...
