    I Use To But Not Anymore

    For years my past was stuck in my head like a scratch record that I could not stop. Now is happening and I am moving on with my life. I am not saying that the path that I have to travel is without risks but I will do my best.

    I Am Much Better, Though...

    I used to obsess and over-analyze my past to pieces. I'm not really sure what changed it or when, but it was just a colossal waste of time, effort, and energy. I love being able to be more present in the here-and-now. Thoughts of my past come and go, and I will go thru phases of...
