#MeToo Holding Me Back?

The #MeToo social media posts these past weeks brought up a lot of serious stories and issues to talk about. I'm not writing this blog to complain, nor am I writing it as an excuse; it is an issue that everyone will talk about for a long time.

Family of My Choosing

Family members fighting after a death is ridiculous. It's as if their parent's death brought them back to how they were as children. They miss their parent, and they have a right to. Let's trek that selfish wire, shall we?

Trust and Communication: The Most Important Elements in A Relationship

Communication, and trust; once you have those elements, your relationship will be richer, and freer. Why do we humans seek perfection in people when we know we're not perfect? ...comfort is not why we're all here, is it? We're here to live, and what does living entail? ...we clamp ourselves into these cages that never truly keep us safe; they only hinder us. Join them on that journey; be strong for them, not against them. See for yourself where they're headed, as living is the ultimate adventure for us all.

Home Ownership: Scams Come with the Territory

 One thing I have come to learn, after buying my first home recently, is there are scammers out there with your information that try to skim money off of you by posing as legitimate agencies providing important services, or documentation.

Mistakes and Growth

We've all been there; wondering whether we're ever going to see the light at the end of the tunnel, just like my friend is. When it rains, it pours, they say. 

Now What?

I remember where I was during 9/11, and now I have these other disasters to remember. I didn't have anyone attached to Harvey, or 9/11, but I had a couple friends who rode out  Irma at home, and survived, thankfully.

Scary Times Coming…

Ocean water, on all three sides, including swamps and wetlands, the storm surges alone will be catastrophic as this behemoth surges into shore. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and Mother Earth is angry...

Too Much… Just Too Much

... trolling isn't going to help someone make a better decision; it will cause unneeded discord, and negative emotions to run rampant amongst a bunch of people feeling the need to gang-up on and bully some innocent person who just asked a simple question, and was looking for a simple answer.

Writing Decisions for Future Works

I have a purpose; a message to tell. I have tried to understand my complexity as a fiction writer for a long time... I have so many messages going through my head, and I need to expel them in order to not manifest them in my own life.

Drama, and Her Friends…

We all have that one friend, you know who that is; the one who tends to like to stir the pot, likes to make sure they are included somehow, and makes sure they get some of the spotlight. 

I Am A…

Those who know me, know that I am many things. I have to admit that I suffered an identity crisis for a long time because I had no idea where to go, or what to do with my life.

Family and Blood Ties

In essence, I have come to find my blood family to be intermixed with lies, deceptions, and issues that go beyond blood relation; they are pinning me as the core of problems in the family, and I have done nothing to warrant that reaction.

I Am Who?

Soul Searching, a daring journey that so few of us take. It's not easy to fathom the results, and when they do arise, half the time, we are stumped, happier, or disappointed.

Missing Us…

They say blood is thicker than water, but I beg to differ. Blood colors water red, and for that, since all blood does the same thing to water, no matter what DNA is mixed in with it, Blood means nothing when it comes to biological family, and the family you choose to keep close. I choose love, first and foremost.

I Refuse to Apologize

I just felt it was a low blow to me that even an apology, or an acceptance of my having a human senility moment wasn't good enough. Just one picture... One sentence, and a close relationship is toast.

Regaining Control

...I've been out of sync, and have had no clue what's going on. I have not been in control of my schedule as I like to be, and I have felt all over the place for about a year now.

Paces and Spaces

The answer lies in self-exploration... Healing is not easy, and it was never meant to be... We are made to feel, so don't be afraid... Fear is a strong emotion, but don't let it take over; change it's chemistry.

She Left, Now what?

Children are not the only important beings out there. There are enough charities and programs to help children. Now, we need to help their future parents!

Hope and Love

Things are happening, people, and I suggested we send out love for one another today, as it is Valentine's Day after all.

Who Are You?

I certainly hope I'm not alone in seeing these patterns and changes, as I feel like I'm living in the Twilight Zone.

Surprises…

We all dread that news; ya know, the news where something unexpected happened to someone you know. Just yesterday, I was told news that sent chills up my spine all the way up to the hairline-
