The word forgiveness is at the forefront of my thoughts today. It's still early on this lazy Saturday morning. I've walked the dog, did the yoga and am settled in with a cup of coffee and my laptop to do some journaling. Then I realized something. I'm not angry anymore. Tomorrow will be February 3rd,… Continue reading Forgiveness
When I ended my marriage over two years ago, over time I found freedom. I could make my own choices without consulting anyone else and could set new goals and challenges for myself. One of those goals was to do yoga. I used to be a gym rat with my ex-husband. We would go to… Continue reading Goals
The past several months have been some of the most fun of my entire life. I mean it's been a combination of How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Exhale and Sex & The City (The first one, not that awful sequel) all rolled into one. I've had dates, I've made friends, I've made Friends with… Continue reading Feelings, Man!
It's Thanksgiving, Y'all! For those of you outside the US, Thanksgiving is a holiday that celebrates gratitude, family and time together. It's a moment for us to acknowledge what we're grateful for and try not to talk too much politics or religion at the dinner table. It's universally considered a successful holiday if no one… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving
Remember when I told y'all that I'm like Rain Man with dates? It's both a blessing and a curse. Two years ago today I came home (It was a Friday) and kicked my husband out of our home. I'd found out he'd been lying about working, he'd been accused of committing a felony and he… Continue reading Two Years Ago Today….
Will my mind ever cease being an ever swirling pool of anniversaries and dates? I am like Rainman with dates and anniversaries. They bubble up in my memory and I just can't help it. Today is a perfect example. November 12th. The day before my son's birthday. The day 24 years ago that my ex… Continue reading Anniversaries & Milestones
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
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
Often over the past two years I sometimes found myself questioning why things went down the way they did. I have had times of quietly (sometimes not so quietly) demanding why God/The Universe/The Creator dumped a steaming pile of shit in my lap that I was solely in charge of cleaning up. Why suddenly at… Continue reading Thrive where you are planted
The last several weeks have given me an important opportunity. I've had the opportunity for the very first time to look back at my marriage that ended almost two years ago with a fresh set of eyes and a brand new perspective. I saw a post earlier today that said it perfectly. I don't know… Continue reading Seeing the past through a new lens
