    Change Is Good

    I have changed my life, taken steps down a new path.  I have made mistakes, fallen down and picked myself back up and started walking again. Through these changes I have taken back my life and now I won't give it back up to anyone.  You can jump on my band wagon and...

    It all started in December.

    My dad had jaw cancer and my wife and I drove 1,000 miles to be with him and support him for his operation. The cancer was in his jaw and they were going to cut out part of his jaw, take some bone from his shoulder and muscles from his chest and rebuild his jaw. My dad kept...

    I Found The Strength

    Growing up, I had terrible self esteem. I hated the way I looked. I had no friends. My parents fought constantly about my dad's infidelity. I never even had siblings to share my pain with. Though, thinking about it now, the dark cloud that surrounded my life then did have a...

    Yeah! To the point where everyone you thought

    was good friends start to leave. SMDH. Never mind they will be the one needing my hand when they need something changed in their lives, problem is I won't be there. I'll be busy like I'm chasing paper.

    Am I Mad

    One Step At A Time

    Six months ago I, was not in the best of places. Floating in between jobs, lamenting about a lost relationship and debts hanging over me. Not everything has changed to the way I would like to see it, but it has improved. I found myself a new job, a new partner, new friends and...

    I used to be in the boat with the many of us.

    Feeling down and useless. And one day I decided that I will stop and take advantage of every second of everyday. So far I have gone an entire year of greatness and motivation.

    No Longer The Shrinking Violet

    As the title implies, I used to be shy. Painfully so. Constantly I'd look through my closet, choosing muted, dull colors out of fear of attracting attention. I thought whatever I had to say was unimportant and boring, that my physical appearance was homely at best, and doubted my...

    NOTE: My memory sucks and all the ages in this are best guesses. I always had a lot of trouble as a kid in school - not with the work, I am very smart and was always top of my class, but with the people. I understand pepole more now, but I can remember being so confused...
