I did something yesterday that I know was stupid, but honestly it was so reactionary that while I could see it was wrong, I just couldn't stop. Like a cornered animal, I just had to lash out! I recently learned that the ex-Hubs is engaged. Yup, apparently 4 days after our divorce was final he … Continue reading The Engagement
We've all heard this phrase, "It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." What a crock of shit! I mean that phrase alone sets you up to feel pained, grief, and sorrow when a relationship ends. I think a much better phrase is, "It's better to have loved and … Continue reading “It’s Better to Have Loved and Lost” ???
Some days on this new "journey" have been ok, other days have been miserable! I have cried myself to sleep and laughed until my tummy hurt; I have spent time with supportive friends and been isolated and alone with my thoughts; I have screamed angry expletives to any and all that would listen and written … Continue reading My Heart Hurts
A couple weeks ago there was so much going on at the house to get it on the market, finals week at school, work ramping up from a much delayed start to the construction season; so when I was asked to come watch a friend do stand-up...YES, PLEASE! I called my little sister and brother … Continue reading Laughter Heals
Sorry I have been away. I honestly haven't known what to write about.

The whole thing was electric but there was one thing that has really stuck with me and it … Continue reading Digg Deep!
The hardest part about New Years is to keep those pesky resolutions. We all set out so purposeful and strong and then doubt creeps in. The doubt that we can have what we truly want. The doubt in our own ability and strength. Top it off with the bitter cold enticing us to hibernate and … Continue reading Trying to Behave
The new year usually inspires us set plans for the upcoming year. We think of all the goals we want to set, the weight we vow to lose and the vacations we swear we are going to take! But it also makes me look back at the current year. I look at the goals I … Continue reading Finding Peace in the Pieces
Like breaking up, reaching out to people is hard to do. Some days because you don't want to be an inconvenience. Others because you feel like the rejection of someone would hurt too bad. Sometimes it's because a lot of time has passed or you are in a different place than the last time you … Continue reading Reaching Out Is Hard To Do
