    I Don't Know Exactly Where It's Going...

    ...but gettin' there is half the fun. In some ways, I can feel it, that I'm on a new path. It isn't always pleasant and easy, but at least I'm moving down a path. Any path. Not the same old, same old path that keeps going around in a circle. I can't see where this path is going...

    With No Map To Guide Me

    The Lion turned five today. Both of my boys are sick. Fevers yesterday, and last night. Kept the Little Bird out of school today. The Lion slept with me because we spilled ibuprofen on him last night. (It was a group effort. I wasn’t steady-handed enough to compensate for his...

    New To Me

    It is a path of unconditional love for all creatures, self-love, self-acceptance, enlightenment, and merging with the cosmos from which I came.

    The Next Chapter

    I am starting on a new path.  A new path where I see a lot of light and happiness, but a new path that also kind of scares me.  After almost a year of living with my husband as only a roommate, he is finally moving out.  Life has been extremely uncomfortable and...

    On A New Path To Find My Truth

    I am on a new path this year. My old job was as a Massage Therapist which I enjoyed very much but that pretty much exhausted itself as an avenue for earning money due to the poor economy. This year I begin my path into education as an Esthetician student. I will be going to Milan...

    Leaving High School

    I'm about to leave High School and it's forced me to analyse my future and really think about what I need as an adult. I've always been caught up among the silly, immature desires of teenagers and it's shallow. I'm going to start a new life for myself - one that is right for me!
