LESSONS I LEARNED IN MY TWENTIES

  I will be turning thirty next week – June first to be exact. I haven’t had much time to really dwell on it until now. This milestone leaves me feeling a sort of sadness and regret for wishing time to pass so quickly during some of my twenties; anger for not learning lessons as quickly as I should have; and hope for a better decade – one filled with adventures, love, mistakes and a desire to...

PEOPLE SAY I’VE BEEN CHANGING

People say I’ve been changing. I’ve changed from the young girl who was unashamed as she stood in front of the room belting out her favorite tune on a plastic microphone. I’ve changed from the rebellious teen that sought chaos instead of rules. I’ve changed from the early twenties something woman – lost and trying to find her way. I’ve changed from mid-twenties something woman – set on...

NOTES ON DEPRESSION

Depression is like a fog – It settles in slowly during the morning hours when the sun hasn’t had time to stretch its beams. Unsuspecting as it covers everything you once saw so clearly. Reach out to touch it and the smoke runs right through your fingers – but you can feel it – with every movement and every breath – you feel it – with every thought that bubbles t...

CARE LESS

  Care less. You need to care less about others perceptions and more about your own. You need to stretch out in your skin and feel the magic that is you. There is no time to worry about others preconceived notions of who you are. There is no time to worry about what others may think.   You need to be you. Unapologetic. Proud. There is no one else quite like you. Wear what you want to wea...

BUYING MY FREEDOM

  The more times I pass around the globe – the more it becomes apparent to me, Life is all about checks and balances. Checking in comes easy – But balancing has always been hard.   Check in with myself, I want love. I want a family. I want success. I want to write a book. I want to build something that brings happiness to others. I want to do something that will change the world. I want ...

CHAPTER ONE – WORLD UNKNOWN

Author Notes: I’ve wanted to write a book ever since I could remember. Pages filled with fantasy, wonder and excitement. About a year ago – I decided to take that plunge and start writing. Life has gotten in the way and the pages remain unfinished. I am hoping by sending this out into the universe – it will somehow breathe magic and life back into this goal. I hope you like this ...

LIFE WITHOUT HEARTBREAK

Now my life is far from perfect, I have highs and lows which I still can’t quite control. Days I don’t want to get out of bed and days I can’t wait to start. Days the waves crash over me – and days I am determined to withstand the storm. But there is one thing I know for certain, I am free of heartbreak. I am talking about that deep core shattering, can’t breathe, can’t sleep, can’t eat, hea...

DEDICATION PAGE

“What makes a good beginning to a book?” He asked puzzled. “The hook, where you learn of the journey the character must embark on.” “The depth of the imagery.” All great answers I thought, But it wasn’t quite right, At least not for me. How do I know this is going to be a great novel? I open the book and read my favorite part first.. The dedication page. It’s where the truth behind the author lies...

LOVE AND WORK, WORK AND LOVE

Do what you love. They always say do what you love. Work and love should go hand in hand. You’ll never be truly happy until you do what you love. I find that love and work should sometimes be separate. I love something because it isn’t work. My passion is my passion because I am free to come and go as I please. I can pick up where I left off. Rediscover what was lost. So I am sorry to ...

TINY HOLES AND BEAMING LIGHT

It all started when they realized something was missing. A tiny hole of light beaming through their chest that refused to be covered. They acknowledged that the hole was there – but refused to do anything about it. And others, well, others noticed it too – the gap – the light pouring out of it, but never said anything. Because they too had a secret. They had the same hole, same light. ...

EPIPHANY

“The light peeks through my cream colored blinds beckoning me to start the day. Let me sleep longer – I toss and turn – using the blanket as my shield. But no, the light – the light keeps getting brighter. And that’s a lot like how an epiphany begins. It twinkles and turns catching your eye.. Before it’s full blown illuminating your life. Try to ignore it you might, but eventually. And...
