    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...

    So when the phoenix knocked on my door I spent many painful years fighting it out, dug my heels in,ignored,yelled, cried,gave a shout. Struggle ,struggle,fight,fight, push harder and harder with all my might. I refuse to lay down , I am stronger than that, I never give in,never...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    "Although the connection will feel immensely

    comfortable, it will also cause friction as we are constantly pushed to become the highest version of ourselves possible when we are in their company. It is like looking through the clearest mirror and we may not always like what is being reflected back—however, we will still...

    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...

    Faulty Programming...

    I just read an interesting fact that makes a heck of a lot of sense to me: whatever your life experience from age 2-6 (the period when we are most impressionable) sets the tone for our beliefs, how we see the world, and how we 'do' our lives. I'm making a big effort these last...

    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...

    The Change Will Be Permanent.

    ~ I am living my life as me. For the first time in forever, I am giving myself permission to live as I want, not as others deem right for me. Anything that happens from here on out will be okay, because I will controlling me. If I make mistakes, that's okay, they're my mistakes...

    Mhmm.

    One thing on my list: I'd like to travel more. I'm going to get a job where I make enough money to travel. I'm not going to tie myself down being a slave to children for the best years of my life, reducing my opportunities to fully LIVE. I'm not going to pour resources into...

    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...
