I Just Like To Write

It is OK for the glass to be half-empty sometimes

March 21, 2016

I don’t know where the last week has gone. It is a semi-blur as I look back. Last week was a very EMOTIONAL week to say the least. I was basically strapped on a roller coaster for seven days and BAM now here I am back at the beginning… My… Read more

No Words Today

April 21, 2016

I want to write so badly this morning and post something here. I just don’t have much in my heart besides heaviness at the moment. I read this yesterday… “People will say just about anything about you and to you when they feel fear. This fear comes from a place… Read more

The “D” word … I guess today we talk about Divorce

May 16, 2016

Back in the day when I was recently divorced and I was basically looking at my life like What the fuck do I do now… PS…If you are going through or are recently divorced I assure you that moment WILL come. And it is normal. And EVERYone feels that. And… Read more

Week Roundup: Passionate Living, Books and Fitness

May 13, 2016

I should have written more here this week but I have been working on a few projects that have devoured my early AM blog writing time. I have two big and completely different ventures I am pursuing BUT do you ever feel like FINALLY everything is clicking. And you are in… Read more

A Beautiful Mess

March 8, 2016

I once used to blog. A lot. I had a family blog and blogged almost daily. When my marriage started crumbling I shut it down. I retreated. I needed to focus on family only. AND I was absolutely SICK of my life looking perfect from the outside…as most blogs and… Read more

Night Terrors.

July 12, 2016

I’m having a moment today. I’m admittedly tired so that doesn’t help the situation. Yesterday was absolutely beautiful. My son turned 7 and we had an extraordinary day celebrating him. His smiles filled my soul and at the very end of the night … When his brother was in bed… Read more

It Could Have Been…Let’s Talk Regret…

March 14, 2016

REGRET. It is a powerful concept. One that can shatter you and break apart your spirit on a daily basis. One that haunts before death. One that sits next to us as a constant companion in older age. I went to Las Vegas this weekend for a Bachelorette Party. It… Read more

Time = Power

November 30, 2016

Sometimes less is more. So today I wanted to write LESS. Which as we all know is genuinely hard for me and anyone who knows me personally knows I talk as much as I write! A reoccurring thought yesterday and today is this… Time heals. Everything. And Time changes perspectives.… Read more

Offer a gift to the world that no one else can offer: Yourself

March 7, 2017

Sometimes I just need to write. Writing is a HUGE creative passion of mine. I once read you need 3 hobbies. One to keep you fit. One to keep you creative. One to make you money. Triathlon/Running are my “fit”. Writing is my “creative”. Yoga/Meditation/Reiki is my “money”. And although… Read more

Small Steps Back

January 24, 2017

I haven’t been on here for awhile and someone asked me the other day if I was ever going to blog again. Someone in REAL life who I had ZERO clue even knew I blogged. So I said YES. I am going to. Truth be told I get on here… Read more

Hindsight…

March 28, 2016

Is Hindsight REALLY 20/20 … OR Just a bitch? So I have this routine where I meditate every morning. Meditation can mean different things to most people and it has meant just quiet breathing, sitting for one “hippy yoga” song, singing a song, repeating mantra but as of late it… Read more

Do what you LOVE

March 25, 2016

I don’t know what to write today. It is an odd feeling to not know WHAT to write about because the words are usually flowing out of my head and I can bust out 1-2000 words in a very short time and effortlessly. I keep a personal journal and have… Read more

What is below Rock Bottom ?

July 5, 2016

I have been active on social media for a few years now. It all started when my entire life collapsed. I was at THE rock bottom. It is funny because I will never forget THAT moment I hit rock bottom. Where I was laying. The way the tears taste. The… Read more

Some Valentines Day Thoughts I LOVE

February 14, 2017

This is from one of my favorite authors, Glennon Doyle Melton. Happy VALENTINES Day! REAL love is not pink and fluffy and rose-y and butterflies. Real love is not shiny and whole and smiling serenely. Real love is not holding hands while running through fields of sunflowers or gazing over… Read more

LIVE for Today…

April 20, 2016

I had dinner with two of my closest friends last night. We all met in a music class when our oldest were only about eight weeks old so it has been almost 7 years of friendships this summer/fall. We lived downtown Chicago and raised our little babies there. We strolled… Read more
