To Ask or Not to Ask

Did you know that asking for something is one of the hardest things to do? Think about it for a minute, is it easy for you to ask for something? Whether asking for a cup of coffee, a seat on the bus, or a ride to the store, when you ask something of someone you…

Be Kind… Don’t Be A Dick

I realized today that though I may feel anger and resentment toward someone for wrongs committed against my family, friends or self, I still do not want to see them suffer because I am not a dick. I would give the shirt off my back, shelter and food to ensure a certain level of comfort….

Heartbroken in Paradise

What is it like to be with someone that you truly love and want to commit to, but they do not want to commit to you? Pretty damn shitty. So many things that run through my brain on a daily basis.  On our 5 year anniversary, I got a kiss. The perfect day. 6-18-16, a…

Secret to Happiness

What is the secret of happiness? Is it really a secret that is hidden and kept from us or do we hide from it feeling unworthy? Truthfully, I believe the latter to be true. Very few individuals are truly happy, having found a peace that eludes the mass majority of humans.  WE tend to live…

Spring… a rebirth of the soul

Spring time in northern Michigan….time to purge all the pent up dust from the long winter, clean out the closets, and get to work on cleaning up the yard.  Seeing children out playing and riding bikes, more folks enjoying walks along our shorelines and streets enjoying an ice cream in the midday sun.  Take a…

Think about it…

I have flown a hundred times in my short lifetime amd it still amazes  me that we can take a large, bulky, metal object filled with fragile lives, lift it into the atmosphere and transport the vessel thousand of miles using currents of wind. How amazing we were created! We sent people to the moon,…

Everyday you make history

We go through each day, buying coffee from the local barista, lunch at a favorite restaurant, and interact with the cashier at the supermarket grabbing those last minute dinner needs. Even if this isn’t exactly you, you DO interact with people during your day. Maybe at your office, checkout line, or while serving a subpoena….

Roadtrip

There comes a time in everyone’s life when the monotony of merely surviving day to day becomes overwhelming, causing a low state of mind and even inviting illness. ☺ Insert roadtrip.  Whether with a friend,partner in life or child(ren)… just do it.  Don’t over analyze it,  do not count your dollars or things you have…

Truth and Love

In any relationship, every personal decision we make automatically brings joint consequences, this is why making decisions together when married or living that way is important.  This would apply even to friendships, especially close ones.  As I adamantly believe that honestly is the best policy, tact is often an acquired skill many do not have…

Feelings…

Feelings have to be one of the most fragile of all the things.  So simple that they can be hurt by a look, single word, or an image, yet are so complicated in the way they heal.  For some, it may take a lifetime for hurt to heal, for the pain of the flame to…

Driving Force

What is the driving force that gets you out of bed in the morning, that motivates you to carry on? Is it family, job/career, image, or maybe all the above. If most of us were honest with ourselves, the inherent need to be wanted, loved, adored, and accepted by others is probably near the top…

Questions of the heart

How do you know someone really loves you? How do you know that you really love someone?  How do you take out the feeling of not wanting to be alone and separate that from how you truly feel? How long do you need to be with someone to really know them? Can you ever? Is…
