    Demolition

    So the first thing I need to do before taking on my new life is to tear down the old.  There is so much stuff to go through in this apartment.  I'll have a little help from her parents, but it's not really fair to them.  Even though she took off on me, I still feel...

    From 9th Of March 2010 To Today, I Have Taken One Step At A Time. Whether Going Forwards Or Back.

    The 9th of March was the day my life changed. It was the day I disclosed. And that day was the day I met Susi Barber. And it was her who showed me the way forward. She spoke to me, told me things would get better, that I would learn to survive and she told me to take it one step...

    Learning

    Like learning to walk, life is a journey that is 1 step at a time.Time itself only moves 1 way and that is forward.If I am to learn in life and grow then I must do it like I learned and relearned to walk, one step at a time.

    This Is Painful

    I've don't think I've ever felt quite so detached in my life.  It's like I'm traveling in and out of a hurricane of emotion and occasionally hitting the eye in the center.  One second I'm upset.  The next I'm happy.  The next I'm sad. Then comes nothing at all...

    Get A Grip!!

    I want to say I'm learning to take one day at a time, but that's putting it a little loosely. With me I have to take it one step at a time, one moment at a time. My moods are up and down daily, to the point that I have to remind myself when I'm thinking positively that this won't...

    It's Not Gonna Be So Bad

    How quickly we come to our senses and begin to move on!  A kind word from a stranger seems to go a long ways these days.  The more I think about this whole situation the more it seems right that I'm moving on.  I really would have given the rest of my life being...

    It Gets Better Quickly

    Sometimes you grow up in leaps and bounds.  I know what I want for the first time in a long time.  I feel confident.  I feel happy.

    Seeing my HS yearbook, it says "to travel the world and see its beauty." And making my foot take a step, would be solo backpacking. It takes a lot of courage though.
