    Life is weird. You can go from being strangers,

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

    This might be the internet

    and not "real life", but there are some people on here that I swear I know better than anyone in my real life. There are some people that just touch my heart. I can feel through their messages to me their true soul. I would be so lost without the love, the laughter and my...

    I believe this. I believe

    that our destinies are already mapped out. People come into our lives and leave if for no reasons other than to make you arrive at your destination, to meet the people you are supposed to meet and make a part of your life. Some will leave because they aren't meant to stay...

    People come into your life

    for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty; to provide you...

    Don't be someone's downtime,

    spare time, part time or sometime. If they can't be there for you all the time, then they are not even worth your time

    “I no longer believed in the idea of soul

    mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that...

    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...

    Our loved ones - whether by blood,

    by marriage, or by choice - are delicate treasures. If we hold them too close, they break - as a butterfly would. By honoring and enjoying the freedom of our loved ones, we gain our own freedom. Have the courage to trust that the beautiful butterflies of your life will return...

    to help us learn who we really are, and what we need to change to better understand ourselves. To pass along wisdom, so we can share it with others. Then. also, there are the beautiful people, who just calm us with their very presence, without saying a word. I am so thankful for...

    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.

    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

    Each One Leaves Something Different

    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...

    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.

    Is it you? Are you here

    as my reprieve? Are you meant to be my support while I get through this? Or are you my one night stand? You have the same background as I. You get why I blushed when you asked me what you did. You figured it was a blush, and not a brush-off. I wasn't expecting this. What...

    First, the disavowal… NONE of this is true. It’s total fiction and in the extremely unlikely chance that anything in this story even remotely resembles truth, I wouldn’t know it. So, please take this in the spirit it’s intended—total fiction—just a fun way of thinking...
