    That Was Me!!!

    Sometimes in a moment, like a dream I remember. Walking to work and the GI's all hanging out their windows just to watch me walk by.... Once I came in to work and when I got in they put me up on a table and sang "here she come just a walking down the street, singing do wo...

    Went to the gym tonight

    before work. Forgot my underwear and belt. Had to use some rope to hold my pants up. The old hillbilly butt crack experience I guess.

    I'd rather not remember some of my choices

    but it's not a bad thing to remember the blissful naivety no matter how long it lasted.

    Where Did I Go?

    I remember vaguely that I used to want to be something. I used to want to be an artist and then a doctor and finally a veterinarian. I used to have passion and care about others and didn't used to question everything within myself or who I was. That child was stolen and what's...

    Sometimes I want to go back to

    when I was with my family. When I had a stable house, food, my sisters, and my parents. But then I when I look back on how much little I knew about life back then. And I look at all my friends and my wonderful brother; and I start to have second thoughts. So maybe my life's...

    Snippets And Glimpses

    Sometimes it's like a quick flash, a photo before my eyes.Some in black and white and some in color.I feel the heat on my skin as the hot sun bears down on me as I stand in a soft white summery dress barefoot in the sand.A cool clear day standing on the edge of the woods looking...

    I have gone so long with out referring to you

    as an existing object in my mind for a while, but today I'm admitting the crave in my heart, the absence in my stomach that I need you to fill, the wall of everything I exposed to you, I've understood and now except that you will always be here, a part of you hanging loose from...

    I don't ever want to forget.

    It's humbling to see how I've changed. Even just from who I was a year ago. I have so much peace and joy now. :)

    Crazy how life seemed more joyful;

    when I knew nothing about life. Growing up is inevitable. Tragic things happens reprocessing into a new self awareness of what is. Remarkably, joyful moments are true blissful reminders of the good that has and can be once again. Undoubtedly time is a mysterious thing...

    The person that I am

    now is horrible. I miss the old me ? the one who was happy and joyful all the time. The one who never cared what people thought. The one who didn't know anything about depression or social anxiety. I've changed so much that I barely even recognise myself. I want back the person...

    And Now That I'm Getting More Comfortable With All That...

    I'm realizing that NO ONE who knew me then wants to know me now.Maybe maturity is the growing realization that you are more alone in life.... than you could ever possibly imagine with your kid-self!!

    It's So Easy To Loose Sight Of What You Are Trying To Achieve

    I grew up in relative poverty as my father left my mother with three young children under seven and no financial support. The pressures of being abandoned without skills or finances and wanting the best for her family put a pressure on my mother and in turn she pushed us harder...
