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…

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…

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…

Rise and shine, just not at 2am!

So for the last week or so, my body has been up to its old antics, 2-3am rise and shine. What is that all about?  Well, I did a little research into the issue.  Most of which was not super helpful to me personally because I do not change well, however, may help some of…

There’s an elephant in the room…

Most of us have heard the term, ‘There’s an elephant in the room.’, however, the majority tend to ignore the poor pachyderm until he grows gigantic and stumbles around making a mess. When in reality, if someone would have just passed around the peanuts, the cleanup would have been kept to a minimum.  A few…

What’s the music of your heart?

We all have that favorite song or in my case… SO many songs. One song that fits each of my many moods (some say personalities, yet how can others comprehend clearly what is inside of another being?) and a song for most situations.  Music, it is natures words made sound, it is nourishing to our…

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, …

Have you found your picker-upper?

Are you somebody’s picker-upper? Clothes putter-awayer? Cabinet and drawer closer? Do you do it out of love or must? If you answered must, then maybe you should not be in that relationship. Do they do the same for you in other areas?  Seriously, if the answer is no… then run, baby, run! If they do…

Time flies

Most have heard the expression ‘Time flies when you are having fun.’ It seems life in general has a way of flying by.  So often we are caught up in the day to day that we fail to stop and enjoy the small things.  A child’s laugh, the warm snuggles of our pets,  the soft…

Be strong

Almost everyone has had that spouse, close friend, or family member that would be fine either way if ties with you were broken.  The thought that someone would not blink an emotional eye by losing you from being in their life is painful. Be strong.  Move on. Unless of course you are simply a horrible…
