Hopelessness

To my friends who are feeling lonely. I get it. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how many people are around you, you still feel like you’re alone. In your thoughts. In your decisions. In your world. In your battle. You don’t think there’s anyone out there you can talk to, but you’re wrong. Please, don’t let […]

Do you see the good in life?

I know most of you don’t know me, and If I had to describe myself, I guess the positive side is that I normally try to find the good in life situations and in people. I really don’t think it’s that difficult, although there’s been a few situations when I struggled to see the purpose, […]

Think about THESE things

If you’re in the habit of waking up at 1:00, 2:00, or 3:00 am and then have a difficult time going back to sleep, welcome to my world. I don’t have nightmares, nor do I toss and turn. It’s like I’m in a sound sleep and someone whispers my name. One early morning, I woke […]

What […]

No words

I recently went with a couple friends to visit someone I’ve known a long time who is in rehab. Although she’s dealing with a lot of physical pain, it was obvious that she was battling a broken heart. Completely shattered. You see, she lost her adult son a few months ago due to a tragic […]

Mary

It’s been awhile since I’ve even had a desire to write. Even though writing has been a huge outlet for me for the last 7 years, I recently haven’t been able to write a single word. If you choose to express your thoughts this way instead of using your voice in some way, then you […]

New Beginnings

And so a new school year has begun! I don’t know about you but when I was growing up, I always looked forward to this time of year.  I couldn’t wait to get new school supplies and maybe a few new clothes. As I got older, I looked forward to meeting new classmates and new […]

You Know It’s Bad When a Funeral Director Gets Involved

You know that amazing feeling you get when you stumble upon something that just absolutely makes your day? Like…finding cash in your pocket that you didn’t even know you had?  I had something like that happen to me today. First, let me explain something that happened last Friday. We had just walked into a restaurant […]
