    The Funny Thing About Happiness.

    I've finally realized what it takes to be remotely happy. Do something for yourself. I sat there, emotionless, as I felt everything that could go wrong, went wrong, coal colored mascara filled tears invaded my face as I shook my head in disappointment. And that's when it hit me...

    Where Do I Go From Here?

    I took a stand to-nite. I asked more from my marriage than what is present now. As a recovering alcoholic I realized that the stress was causing me to question my sobriety and mental health. I want more from a marriage than to settle. I want to give and I want the person who I...

    Today I woke up a felt like utter crap.

    Yesterday was quite the same. I have chronic headaches and I feel like poo most of the time. I took a good look at myself in the mirror and said "something has got to give." I googled how to cleanse and heal myself and have found some pretty good detoxes I would like to try. I...

    I majorly need to change.

    Today was the breaking point. I have lost my identity. I have lost who I am. I was once easy going and fun, full of energy! Now, after being through struggle after struggle, I'm emotionally drained. I have no energy left. I regret a lot of poor decisions I made. This is not me...

    Is it me? Everything is crumbling.

    Nothing makes sense. Relationships are broken. Bonds that should be permanent are severed, leaving behind ragged edges of frayed cord. I know I'm not wrong in facilitating the brokenness. It is time for me to be surrounded by people in my life who truly do love me. Family is...

    We get set in our ways.

    We become what we are, based on what we have experienced in our lives. Scars don't heal, they just teach us a lesson. We gain strength & wisdom from them. I don't show my scars, although they run deep. But what I am realizing is that only I have the ability to change me. I do...

    To End The Family Cycle Of Eating To Death

    Compulsive eating has taken a heavy toll on my Mom and Dad personally. Let me explain both: With my mom, I've never seen her be happy with her size. I've never seen her NOT on a diet. I've never seen her drop the "magical 30" that she's always wanted. Last year, she found out...

    My ex-husband is an alcoholic. We were married for 6 years and had one child. The alcoholism wasn't obvious at first, at least not to me, but got progressively worse. I begged him to get help which he refused insisting he could quit on his own. Of course that never happened. I...

    A better place and a better frame of mind I hope. So much can happen in a year, especially in my semi-adventurous life. Last year by this time I was single, sad and bitter, now I'm living in a completely different city with my "new" man. Although I am grateful for what I do...

    I am a continual work in progress.  Over the years I have changed so much I am hardly the same person at all.  But I do need to rediscover parts of my old self, now thought lost. Life is boring without change.
