    Choices

    We are faced with so many choices in our lives and in all honesty we don't always make the wisest choices while we're young, or sometimes even when we're older. What do we do with the wrong choices? We can learn and grow from them or we can let them suffocate us. I am aware...

    Friends who know me might scold me -

    but here goes. I was planning to drive down to the beach last Saturday, just for the day. I originally meant to go by myself. Then I made a mistake: I invited my man (long-term troubled relationship) to come with me. I felt guilty because I haven't been Working On The...

    ♥ Do What You Love ♥

    ♥ I truly do love my job, it's a blessing. Yes, it's mostly boring and thankless. At times abuse filled, violent and tiring, but then there are the moments when your the only one there to help, so you don't ignore, you don't walk past, you don't even have a second thought, you...

    I am unhappily married

    and contemplating divorce. I also have a major crush on another man. I should add - I don't fall for guys easily. They have to give me a lot of encouragement, and have a brain as well as sex appeal. As it stands now, both my H and my crush are only giving me scraps. OK - fine...

    Life Is Short

    I believe life is short and you should make the most of it. You only get one life, one chance to live, so don't take anything for granted and do all you can with the life that you have. Life is what you make of it, and make the most that you can of it. Life is shorter than...

    Make Every Moment Count

    I pledge today to make every moment count. To do the best for myself and others and not waste time on regrets, self-doubt, or self-loathing. I believe that this is the only chance I will have to live my life, and to waste that chance through any act of "poor me" hesitation is...

    That's what I used to do when I heard that statement. I laughed because I wasn't buying into that crap. Nowadays, I have a completely different take on things. It seems like just yesterday my dad was being a jerk to everyone at a family function, but not enough to ruin it...

    I believe it's short

    and you should make the most of it, but I feel like I don't have a chance to. I'm going to be going to school until high school comes and is over. Then there's college and probably a school after that. Despite summer breaks and school breaks where is the time to live. I want to...

    The Simple Things

    At a picnic on Saturday, I chose a bag of chips instead of the healthier option of an apple. I mentioned this to a new friend of mine, whom I found out lost his daughter to the tragedy on 9-11-01. He grabbed a chip from my bag and said, “Life is too short, enjoy the simple...

    Life'S Too Short So Don'T Waste A Moment

    “Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat youright. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would...

    Sometimes I just don't want to live anymore. But I know it's not an option. Once I get past this, I'll be okay. The difficult part is making sure I live that long.
