    Confessions Of A 20-Something Optomist

    I've always been nicknamed something to do with happiness (actually, my main nickname is just a rude word that rhymes with my real name) such as "Smiley" or "Sunshiine" or that one very gorgeous college teacher who called me "Bright girl" and not because of my intellect, or I'd...

    I'm Changing My Relationship To Money-

    For much of my life, money is something that hasn't come to me very easily. I've had to work pretty darn hard for what I've managed to acquire, and when I dare compare my life to other's lives, I'm not very high up on the ladder of material success. I've always just scraped by...

    My New Way

    1. Simplify. I don't need half of what I currently own. I could stand to downsize and give some of my things to people who would use them more than I do.2. Show kindness everywhere, every day, to every person. This can be difficult- we all have days when we don't feel good and...

    Living With Pain-

    Here's one of many spiritual truths that has been part of my life in spades of late: painful experiences will repeat themselves until you find a new way of relating to them. Life's been really intense for me lately: trying to find a way through the difficulties has been...

    Truest Sentence

    It seems noble or effort worthy to write the truest sentence you can. Hemingway is credited with offering the suggestive thought. Just as the mind fills preparing for the disclosure and the fingers are poised to pour to unburden the heart, the hesitation comes. Slowly at first...

    Working For A Living

    I've come to the startling revelation that I have an aversion to workaholics; people who succumb to the attitude that you have to work tirelessly and endlessly, even if it makes you absolutely miserable. While I believe whole-heartedly in the satisfaction of giving something your...

    Beating The Odds-

    Sometimes I can't help but compare myself to others, and it doesn't take long to see how all of my 'normal' friends had loving and supportive childhoods that have morphed into pretty healthy adulthoods. While I can't say my experience of the former was true, I'm trying my best to...
