    Taking A Risk

    I am starting my life again. It may seem total madness to the people around me but to me it makes sense. I feel like I've done all of this, my whole life, for other people.I'm chucking away a career that I've worked hard on. I know my reputation is outstanding and the reactions...

    I love my life and who I am.

    I am mostly unflappable and deal with crises quickly and efficiently. But *******. You know that feeling where you're doing everything you are supposed to and things still roll back over you like Sisyphus' rock? I lost my home a few months ago; with it went my last remaining...

    I know what I want to do now.

    It's pretty much what I've been doing for years now anyway.

    My reset button started on December 31,

    2010. Since then, I have become more of a woman then I was before. More of me. Just "me." I don't look back instead I look ahead. I am back in school and loving it. For once in my life now, my decisions are no longer because of someone else. They are because of me. I now get to...

    I've had so much heartache in my life.

    I never have truly let go of my past relationships, and they are continuing to weigh me down. I have been struggling with depression for the last year, and anxiety for the past 7 years. Next month, I am moving to a new country, and I have the opportunity to begin my life again...

    It Seems As If I Am Always Having To Start Over

    I am so tired of it. I think I have moved at least four times this past year. I moved out of my mother's house, moved in with my sisters, had to move in my brother's for work, moved back to my sisters, then now, I am back at my mother's. For temporary though. We're planning on...

    Finally The After Shock Is Gone..

    and all that's left is something of a clear head. I should have written this a year ago when I separated from my ex on the 31st of 2010... but I didn't. A year later of sowing wild oats and trying to see how life was just starting to melt for me everything falling into place...

    How Many Times Has It Been?

    Oh well. This seems to be my theme. I am a failed phoenix. Halfway through coming back to life, I die again. Then, I make another attempt to rise from the ashes. I know what I'm doing wrong, but I'm not sure I have the strength to fix things. However, if I don't, then life is...
