    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...

    What It's Like To Be Alone

    So there are some pretty crazy stories on here, never will I be able to be as inspiring or interesting as many of them. But I do have one experience that has changed my life a lot. For almost the past two years I have lived in Brazil. I made a decision in my life in which I was...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
