    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...

    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

    For too many years than I care to remember I have spent every working day being the big boss - running things - telling others what to do - and generally being in charge of a couple of thousand hard working and committed individuals. Not any more I've cashed in my savings...

    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...

    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...
