    Pros And Cons

    I have spent so much of this past year lookin inward. Examining my life. Doing kind of a mental pros/cons list. What about my life do I like, what about my life do I hate. Hate is a strong word...maybe-dissatisfied with. What I found out is my pros list is much longer than my...

    This year I began becoming a person

    that I don't think I want to be. I have done things I once told myself I would never do, and would be ashamed if some people knew about them. So in August I will be starting college and I will become someone who I can see in the mirror and be happy with. More importantly that...

    Always

    We should all be doing this on some level or another. To stay the same is not to grow. After all, as a living creature, we should appreciate the beauty of growing.

    The Grand Reconstruction

    Yes, I'm rebuilding myself. It'll take a lot of work, but I'm up for it, and I certainly have the energy for it. I plan: to break everything down, study the problems, eliminate as many of those problems as possible, and start the reconstruction of my soul and being. Not an easy...

    Becoming A Skyscraper

    I think I decided it was time to transform not change but transform after the best relationship and longest I ever had ended. Maybe because I realized I was ready to throw away my life for someone elses. Ready to give up that experience of flirting with a foriegner on a island...

    As I look back at my old journal pages

    and entries, I can't help thinking that I have come a long way, yet still quite far from what I wish to become. I have several reasons to rejoice, however, because I am, after all, making a lot of PROGRESS.

    Realism?

    I recently got out of a long-term relationship... and was rejected by a guy I like as well. So now I feel the need to redefine myself, I dunno, maybe because I've been so attached to one person or another... & relationships are quite important to me, so perhaps I tend to define...

    Rebuilding Me Day 2.....

    I'm not sure where this will go, or how often I will be able to update. I'm a pioneer in my field, clean energy - in particular disruptive technology. I hit the guardrail hard this week with my job and ended an abusive work relationship that has been going on for nearly 4 years...

    Kinda Constantly

    I think I am doing this constantly, reinventing myself. I always find out new things about myself. I've always allowed myself to change my mind. I never sign contracts with myself because I know there is a good chance I will break them. I do what I want and only think I'm bad...

    I was divorced in February 2014,

    after 12 years of marriage. I am fortunate to have primary custody of our two children. I did make the mistake of almost marrying nearly the first person I met after my divorce. We did not marry, and it did not end well. So . . . . what I am doing now (finally) is reinventing...
