We are officially six months into 2018. Take a minute and ask yourself these questions: What have you accomplished thus far that you are proud of? What have you done thus far that you aren't so proud of? How can you make the remaining six months of 2018 just as good, if not better, than … Continue reading 2018 Checkpoint
With every headline, I get more and more stressed. I wonder if my daughter will be safe in school. I wonder if my husband will be safe anywhere. I wonder if I will be safe anywhere. Everything going on around us, just breeds more and more disdain and leads to a level of skepticism that … Continue reading Stressed.
I've felt horribly guilty for neglecting my blog as of late. There has been so much going on, that I don't even know where to start in wondering why I haven't been blogging, I just haven't. This is normal; to just not have the motivation or the steam for good content. Instead of forcing sub-par … Continue reading Dealing with Guilt
I’m somewhere between the boughs of exhaustion and extreme restlessness. I was on another Internet binge, searching for answers for my mental health.

Lately I've been doing a lot of self-evaluation; an effort in trying to become a better "me", if you will. I've been through some scenarios that have provided the shocking conclusion that my "free time" is never actually "free". People spend an unnecessary amount of time trying to figure out what it is they want … Continue reading My Free Time is Not Free
So, if anyone has been paying attention, the blog has definitely been a little DRY lately :(. I sort of hit a rut and a rough patch for the last couple of weeks in regards to blogging. Between work, editing my next book, working on some poetry and life; unfortunately, my blog took a smooth … Continue reading Took a Small Break, but I’ll be Back Soon
I was recently involved in a situation, where I allowed my emotions to get the best of my better judgement. By allowing that to happen, I made decisions very haphazardly, without truly taking the time to process how i felt, digest it and find a more reasonable response for them.
