What surviving a hurricane taught me about myself & other people.

  It has been a 9 days since I took this photo.  We survived the hurricane and it was like nothing I've ever experienced before in my life.  Some people are still without power.  The water has been restored in most places, but we are required to boil it before we can use it for drinking or… Continue reading What surviving a hurricane taught me about myself & other people.

"In truth, I wanted to reach out to that touch-stone of past comfort."

Sleepless in Texas

  It's true, Friday night's sleeplessness was peppered with Facebook posts, YouTube videos, trying to read on my Kindle, downloading meditation or hypnosis apps trying to help myself get some Z's Sleep.  Sleep has been elusive as of late.  I've never been one to have trouble sleeping.  I could fall asleep, get woken up by… Continue reading Sleepless in Texas

I wish you Enough

I wrote something this morning, kind of by accident that I thought was important. "Until you've had enough, you will continue to go back to what hurts you. I wish you enough." I was paroozing my codependent facebook groups, reading posts, commenting on some.  I don't often write posts on these sites, I'm more of… Continue reading I wish you Enough

Adversity

I heard a beautiful quote this week; Adversity introduces us to ourselves.  That hit me straight between the eyes, because it's true. There have been many times throughout my life that I've faced major adversity, more than I care to go into in this blog - I like to keep these writings at around 700-750 words so we… Continue reading Adversity

Grief isn’t linear

Have you ever taken a trip that was linear?  Non-stop from one point to another.  I don't mean your morning drive to work kind of trip, I mean a meaningful trip that has the potential to create changes and memories. A road trip across multiple states for example.  They are rarely non-stop and they often… Continue reading Grief isn’t linear
