    After High School

    That's the chapter I'm starting- the one that happens after high school. Right now, it sucks ***. I have almost no friends- I love the ones I have, but I seem incapable of making new ones. Everyone else seems to be making new friends, but I seem to be one of those people that...

    Again.

    And for the first time in a long time, I am encompassed by serenity. I am worth it. I will not waste my time with a liar. I will not waste my time with a person who talks down on me. Disregards my feelings. Degrades me. For a while I thought you were worth the emotional...

    My Thirties

    I had a rough transition from 29 to 30. Not because I was scared of getting older- I actually welcomed that part. What I struggled with was figuring out what was really important to me at this stage in life. I felt incredibly bored and under-stimulated with my 20-something...

    Wether I Want To Or Not...

    The truth is that I didn't believe the last chapter was done yet. Guess I was wrong. So here I am, in my mid forties and starting over. It's something that had never even crossed my mind until recently. So I guess I'll need to accept what has happened, what people now think of...

    In a few weeks time, I'm moving to a new city

    by myself to attend a junior college program for five years. It's a complete 360 change and I've worked hard to get into the school and part of why I wanted to go was to leave bad memories and bad people behind and move on. I'm happy that I got a chance at a new beginning but...

    I have been through so much in the past several

    years. I was hospitalized three times for suicidal ideations. I went through a bankruptcy. I went through a divorce. I was starving for a while because I didn't make enough money and had to pay a lot of child support. That part was one of the most difficult things, but at least...

    A New Light In My Path

    I have begun... I can feel the change within. Waking up early without an alarm, re-acclimating to a place that I thought I had left behind. Skipping the nicotine and replacing it with nutrition and yoga. This was almost automatic this morning. The change comes from inside your...
