There are some days that the exhaustion I feel enveloping my entire body is more than I can handle. I feel anxiety rising from my belly to my throat and it’s as if a hard canon ball is just sitting there in my throat, stuck with no way of getting out, and I feel I… Continue reading The keeper of my thoughts
Every once in awhile my heart sinks into a place of melancholy that no one knows about. It doesn’t happen often and when it does it is only when I am alone and darkness has settled and the people I love are tucked away in their space, living their own struggles or enjoying their own… Continue reading The dark side of happy
I’ve never shared this thought with anyone and in fact just today finally had the courage to voice it out loud to my husband, which gave me the confidence to share it on here… I feel though like I should first disclose that I absolutely LOVE and feel so blessed to be given the opportunity to be… Continue reading Is this a taboo parent thought?

I remember a particular class I took at OCC and the instructor saying forgivess isn’t just for the other person, it’s primarily for yourself, because every minute you spend feeding that resentment is time taken away from enjoying other things in your life. That always stayed with me. It isn’t always easy… Continue reading Forgiveness

This time I am really pushing the limits. I have two weeks to come up with three different papers and things are not looking good. Actually the final copy of one of the papers isn’t due until the 2oth, but I still need to come up with some kind of draft by the 9th. On the one hand… Continue reading Pushing The Limits
