October

Has it really almost been a month since I published a blog post? I'm sorry, y'all. October has me in its snare again. Every year I get weird. I get sad, depressed, angry and pull inward. I call it cocooning. I sort of wrap myself up in my apartment and don't want to talk. There's… Continue reading October

It’s been a minute

I've been seeing, reading, and saying this motto recently Getting divorced sucks. Being divorced doesn't.

Let Go & Let Karma

When someone does something bad to us we want some kind of retribution, its human nature.  We hope somewhere deep inside that something similar is mirrored back to them in their lives.  Some of us wait for it, wringing our hands in anticipation for it to happen, cackling maniacally, preparing freshly popped and salted popcorn… Continue reading Let Go & Let Karma

Thoughts on my Wedding Anniversary

I'm a person who gets stressed and depressed about things before they happen.  I think I anticipate the way I'm going to feel on a certain milestone or date and get all my emotional processing done ahead of time.  Over achiever? Yeah, pretty much. I've been a little stressed and sad this week because today… Continue reading Thoughts on my Wedding Anniversary

Make a wish!

My sister said something to me last weekend when we were birding just outside Houston at Brazos Bend State Park (where I took this photo) that has stuck with me.  She said that it's been a lot of fun watching me learn how to live again. I've sat with that all week.  I have learned… Continue reading Make a wish!
