Changing the inner can change the outter????

Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. -William James Ok. So if this is so, then if I think the public transportation is the best thing invented and that the people on there really do not smell and I just have a nose problem and do not have a problem attracting those with a terrible stench to sit next to me, will I suddenly… Continue Reading

Cause I Walk With A Limp, Like An Old Skool Pimp……

Yes folks.  I am going to be doing a walk!!!!  The last one I did for breast cancer was a few years ago and now, well, I think its time to do one for another cause that hits even closer to home because it affects me!!!!  We all know that I am not a runner, or a walker, or do much physical activity that breaks a sweat.  I’m more of a yoga/pilates girl, but when… Continue Reading

Even The Hot Mess Doesn’t Have All the Answers

Yes folks. Its true.  I really don’t have all the answers.  If I did, I probably would know why people think that insulting and hurting other people because you feel poorly about yourself is acceptable.  Especially when its the ones you love.  If I had all the answers I would know why people who are completely selfish walk around saying that everybody else is the selfish one.  I would also know why it hurts so… Continue Reading

BOOK REVIEW: Fall Girl by Marybeth Smith

Fall Girl is a fantastic fictional piece written for teens that includes an accurate depiction of a high school girl and her teenage angst while her her bipolar brother reeks havoc on her life. Not only was this wonderfully written, but the book was not an account of a bipolar teen and their life, but instead, how siblings of a bipolar teen can be affected.  Though fictional, Blake’s character holds true to a teen with… Continue Reading

Father’s Day…..A tribute to my dad…..

My dad.  So many things I can say about my dad.  He’s always been there and always fought for me.  He’s made me laugh, and of course, he’s made me cry (when i was a little girl and he would say no!)  Today, he called me up.  I said “hello” and he launched into this long winded story. When he finally stopped I said “Happy Father’s Day by the way.”  His response: ” Yea.  so i… Continue Reading

The Forest

Walking in the forest Leaves are crunching under my feet Thye sun shines brightly I’m engulfed in the heat I keep on walking And see a rabbit I turn and run It’s just a habit I’m running so fast The trees just a blur What was I running from I’m really not sure Suddenly the sky turned gray I continued to run far, far away. The raindrops fell The dirt turned to mud Tripping on… Continue Reading

Should Celebs EXPECT that “role model” comes with being a celeb?!!!

For the last, oh, 100 years or so, I think that at one point or another every person has admired or wanted to be like at least one celebrity.  Whether it was Grace Kelley, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, a member of the Beatles,  to any of the modern day celebrities.  What is it that makes, or made us want to be like them?  Is it the glitz and glamour that follow them everywhere?  The way they command… Continue Reading

Why??

Your words sting right through my soul Sit deep in my heart burning a hole My mind is spinning I can barely breathe My chest tightening, I can’t leave Tears fill my eyes, my stomach in pain Why do you hurt me and drive me insane? Where did I fail, what didn’t I do? I thought I was doing alright for you. I stood by your side when no one else cared I gave you… Continue Reading

Me? An Inspiration?

Lately, I have been receiving emails, messages, and other comments from individuals telling me that I have inspired them, or others in various ways.  In good ways. I think it’s incredible and such a great, positive thing because I love helping others, and am quite flattered and in awe that my thoughts and opinions have been so useful.  Yet, it still doesn’t sink in to my brain how I could have possibly been an inspiration… Continue Reading
