The only constant is change

The only constant is change

Every time I think I have my life sorted out, life throws a big messy curve ball. In 2015 I fell in love with a man, who does not love me, but still I held on. Why? Because I am naïve enough to believe that people can change and become the best version of themselves I...

Why did it take me so long?

I have found a new hobby and I am loving it. Talk about a learning curve. I have started taking photographs. Not only is my brain being stretched in ways I did not think possible, I have discovered a really interesting side effect of photography. I now look at my...

Shattered trust

I have had my heart broken by two people during the last month. And all because of lies and gossiping. That kind of pain that strikes you when you discover the betrayal and lies is crushing. It’s so bad you wonder why it does not kill you. It leaves you...

Why I de-activated my Facebook account

I hope you had a happy holiday season and for those of you who celebrate Christmas, a very Merry Christmas. For some, this time of year can be very difficult and it was like that for me. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and...

It’s no accident that certain people come into your life. They arrive unannounced and proceed to tear up your preconceived ideas and patterns. Often they disrupt your life so badly that you may wish you had never met them. But you have something to learn from them....

Frankly my dear …

It takes us a lifetime to get over ourselves. All my life I have been the ’emotional’ one. The person that wears their heart on their sleeve. The first one to extend the olive branch. The first one to say ‘I love you’.  I am often dismissed and...

Amputation

The cutting off of a limb seems extreme even in the worst situations. If you leave it too long the gangrene spreads like bitterness and anger throughout your entire body. The poison spreads and you end up hating the world and the people in it. The pain is excruciating...

Sh*t Happens … And it is all good.

Last night my office roof collapsed and my office and bedroom were flooded. This was just another event in a long, long string of events. Just a week ago it was my car that broke down. Before that it was the accident that I had while being towed, and then the car...

Operation Awesome

My business has improved over the last year in leaps and bounds compared to 2013. I made some significant changes during 2014 and they have paid off. I still have challenges to overcome though and my income is not at a level where it can sustain me consistently on a...
