SEND TO A FRIEND:

    Over the weekend I ran into an old regret.

    He was a co-worker until he decided to run his mouth off and get fired. He wasn't one to put up with authority though so I knew he wouldn't be there long. I regretted never saying goodbye to him.He is a cowboy that rides dirtbikes at competitions. He is one of the smoothest...

    It's good to have her in my world.

    12 years and counting, and all I know is that I've learned so much from her, and I like to think she's learned a thing or two from me. I think we were meant to be in each other's lives because she has shown me how drive, determination and a caring heart are still possible in a...

    Maybe not in a cosmic way,

    but simply because we recognize or see something in them that we are longing for. It can be kindness, wisdom, humour, love or whatever else we are yearning to find and can see glimpses of in them. Sometimes they fulfill that need and move on, sometimes we discover we were wrong...

    Somewhere, there is someone

    who dreams of your smile and finds in your presence that life is worthwhile, so when you are lonely remember that somebody somewhere is thinking of you.

    To the One who makes me believe

    that wishes on stars do come true... If I could give you one thing in life, I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes. Only then would you realize how SPECIAL you are to me.

    and recognized someone I use to work with 15 years ago. He didn't recognize me and I didn't speak up. I thought about him much that night. Even though I was dating and living with my ex whom worked with us for a while at the time, We hung out and always had good conversations...

    An interesting person you have met.

    So a week back, I went to watch the movie Interstellar with one of my friend. As we went to purchase our tickets I felt a tap on my shoulder. I immediately froze and slowly looked behind; there was this guy with a goofy smile on his face and he awkwardly told me hi. I looked to...

    In your life, you meet people.

    Some you never think about again. Some, you wonder what happened to them. There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you. And- there are some you wish you never had to think about again. - C.S. Lewis

    One year, my friend Seth went to the hospital.

    It came as a complete surprise. He'd had a mental breakdown. He was being kept in the psychiatric ward--no visitors. I wanted to do something for him. I made a card, and spent time getting it signed by as many of our mutual friends, and his family members, as I could. But then...

    Don't be someone's downtime,

    Each One Leaves Something Different

    There are those who touch your being so gently, that on the sand of your life, the only footprints to be seen are your own. Others trample and stomp so hard, they leave crushed deep footprints, and sand strewn everywhere, and all you can do is wait helplessly...

    Life is weird. You can go from being strangers,

    to being friends, to being more than friends, to being practically strangers again.

    Sometimes they come into your life to teach you

    compassion for others, to teach you how to deal with angry broken people, to teach you how to communicate calmly with irate and hysterical people. Some of the biggest jerks who have come into my life have been my greatest teachers.

    2015 was definitely a year of transition.

    Many new people came. A few people were lost. Whether the connections are fleeting or ongoing, I appreciate them for what they are. In one way or another I have learned a great deal about people and myself through those connections. It makes it all worth it, no matter how it...
