A letter to 2019.

I went through some very interesting circumstances this year; some that I've never been through before, some even that I have barely been ok enough to talk about. I wasn't always being 100% for the important people in my life. I wasn't present for a lot of people I love this year. I wasn't present … Continue reading A letter to 2019.

Take On Life’s Responsibilities One Moment at a Time

We all do this; we tend to believe we have eyes in the backs of our heads, multiple arms and legs, superpowers, the ability to correct the past, right all the wrongs and predict the future all at one time. We want to be able to change the world for the ones we love when … Continue reading Take On Life’s Responsibilities One Moment at a Time

Turning Your Passion into Your Priority

How many times do we go through life noting how many things we look at as something we are passionate about, but never take the steps to make them something we will put forth 100% effort?

A Disruption in the Force…

  There's been a disruption in the force, and it's messing with all that is right and normal in my world. I haven't been myself, and I hope to change that.  I have suffered from low motivation and drive to do anything that I love.  My job has been more than overwhelming last month, but … Continue reading A Disruption in the Force…

Social Work: Helping Others Turn the Page

I never thought I would write about my job.  I always keep my career separate from my writing (don't ask me why).  Maybe because I have always worked for state agencies, and it's pretty taboo to talk about your "state job" on the Internet, so I've always chosen to keep it private; I don't really … Continue reading Social Work: Helping Others Turn the Page
