    Every day is like a new adventure.

    In fact, the last ten years of my life have been one great adventure, most of it not very good. Now that I am older with the mistakes of my past behind me, I am trying very hard to better myself, but it is difficult some days to say the very least. One minute (or one day) I am...

    Today I woke up in my bed,

    in my apartment, next to my pup, with my son safely asleep in his bed. We have a home, we have food, I have a job and we are not going without today. I am beyond blessed and that is what I am going to focus on today. Not the insane amount of laundry that I need to do, or where...

    I'm working on being authentic

    and am using this app to really get in touch with the real me. Part of that is just working on the parts of me and writing them in, instead of reading about others as much as that is fun for me and what I'm inclined to do. I tend to check out and pay attention to others instead...

    Certain experiences that you go through in life

    We always judge people based on what we don't

    have in common.. God forbid we find something in common. The open mind sees all sides and understands all kinds.

    I've heard that time heals all wounds.

    .. So I'm wondering why, after all this time, I am still having such a hard time accepting things the way they are?? I feel like a piece of me is missing, and I am trying so hard to search for that missing piece. The more time that passes makes me realize that I am missing the...

    Last night someone very close to me echoed the

    words of someone who I no longer speak to. It got me thinking. It made me realise that lots of people around me have been sort of saying the same thing, which is something along the lines of: "I want you to be the best version of yourself" and that I'm not living life to its...

    So, I just now joined this place

    because I'm looking for someone who I can relate to on something? I've been struggling with a **** addiction for a little while now and it's really difficult for me to talk about, but for my own health and relationship it's something I really want to work on.

    I dreamt of having a rival with the man I love.

    She is younger, prettier and most of all she's slim which is definitely not me as of this moment. She did a lot of things just to get my man and he can be clueless because he's nice with everybody. One day my rival told me and all the people there in my dream that she succeeded...

    Note to self # 2: Someday I'm going to stop

    being afraid of who I am. I'm going to claim myself with all the fierce tenderness that I've been hoping so desperately to receive from others. I'll accept my own limitations, and leap over them. And when I stop to look around, I'll realise that the people and opportunities...

    I don't want to end up being like her,

    the old woman of whom my mom is taking care.  All that woman can think and talk about is how many other women that her husband has fallen for, betraying her love and trust.  She became insanely jealous, can't leave him alone, can't have another woman approaching him.  Every...

    So, I thought I'd try something new- something

    I've never done before! I need to have a place to vent- to say what I need to say out loud, but don't have the courage to talk about to anyone who knows me. I'm hoping by being here- I can help strengthen myself, and maybe regain a little bit of confidence! I hope!

    I've been trying to work on myself

    and my sense of reality. I tend to fantasize about how it would be if I could do this or that, but never really put my mind into doing stuff. It's super annoying, but it seems I just can't stop daydreaming and actually start making things happen. God, I'm annoying. Hahaha

    It is a very slow process.
