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,…

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…

A Better Footing

There is some thing about sitting in the sun,  on a beach, listening to the crashing of the waves that brings about clarity. Lucidity of thoughts, soul, and mind. A renewing of sorts that melts away all the junk collected during the week, months,  or years that is gained by few other environments. For me, …

A New Normal

Ever had the brakes put on suddenly in life only to crash anyway?  Or feel like you ran face smack into a unforgiving wall of brick and mortar?  The thing about those ‘accidents’ is that life never goes on as it was.  Whether it was a loss of life, job layoff or termination, or maybe…

How many chances do you get for love?

Some of us find our soulmate, our life-long partner early on whether it may be a high school sweetheart, college love, or in the middle of a thriving career.  We have some babies and grow into eternity together.  Life may not be perfect, but we make it work, hopefully keeping the flame burning and love…

Switching gears…

In life, as in riding a bike it is sometimes difficult to decide when to switch gears. You move along until it feels right, then can switch gears slightly, bringing on more challenge and stretching of muscles.  However, there are times when the gears switch a bit too violently and you almost fall off the…

Next Chapter…

Ever have the feeling that someone dropped you in the middle of the woods and said …. Have fun… Then left.  That is a little how I felt yesterday when I lost my job without cause. Facing the world yet again as a single mom, trying to stay afloat, however this time, no income. What…

Day 610: Alcohol Free

It was 610 days ago that my husband and I had our last drink.  Oddly enough, it was one day after Independence day, the definition of Irony.   Well, the night started slow enough at one of our favorite hangouts, then transferred locations to hear a DJ friend play at yet another favorite dive.  Beer led…
