Plan B

Lists make me happy. Being able to check items off a To Do list each and every day actually makes me giddy. However, from time to time something is going to happen that is NOT on “The List”. When I am thrown this Curve I become frustrated and anxious…. sorta like a fish out of water.

Overcoming Myself

“Life’s not fair kido.”

I wish I had a dollar for each and every time I heard my mother say this to me. If  I did I would totally be laid up in a cabin up top of some remote mountain.

My mother repeatedly relayed that message to me so I would always know… Life is hard. It may look easy to some people, but the reality is…everyone struggles at some point or another.  What makes the difference is how we handle  Obstacles when they appear. Continue reading

On My Own

Solitude. The word alone makes me feel…well…lonely.

Being an extrovert by nature, Solitude is a something that is difficult for me to deal with. I thrive on human interaction, being social, and having that connection with another person. During these quiet times, I struggle.

I struggle with the silence.
I struggle with the monotony that solitude brings.
I struggle with my own thoughts. Continue reading


So I have decided that sometimes my life is like one of those hidden camera shows… Ya know the ones where something whacky happens and the person is all confused or getting ready to lose their minds…and right before they do… someone steps out….


Well, most of the time things happen I keep waiting… but no one steps out from behind the wall and yells, “SURPRISE!” Continue reading

Do You Even Know Who I Am?

Each and every morning I wake up, I have choices to make.

What am I going wear?
What am I going to eat for breakfast?
Will I wear my hair up or down today?
Will I EVEN brush my hair today?

After all those decisions have been made then I decide what Mask to wear.

Whether you want to admit it or not, you do the same thing. Continue reading

More Then You Probably Want To Know

Am I the only one who loves those little questionnaire thingys where you have to answer a bizzilon questions about yourself?  I don’t know why, but those things get me excited. I not only love answering them, but I LOVE reading them about others too.

I’m a total dork I know.

I’ll wait……………. Continue reading

Decisions Decisions

HATE decisions.

When I am forced to make one, I struggle internally even long after the decision is made.

What is the RIGHT thing to do?
Should I have gone the other way?
What if I just made a mistake?

At some point in all our lives we are going to come to a Crossroads, a place where we are going to have to make a decision about the next path we take. For some, the choice is clear, for others, they may need a flashing NEON sign to tell them which way to go. Continue reading

One Step At A Time

I have never been shy about writing with my issues with self doubt, failures, worries, and anxieties. Sometimes writing about them is the one way I can combat them. The voices sometimes get so loud in my head, that if I try to convey my thoughts in speech, it comes out a jumbled mess. However, writing allows me the freedom I need to express myself in a more coherent fashion. Continue reading

Living Life

I have never been what you would call a Risk taker. In fact, I am pretty much the total opposite.  So a month ago, when I announced to my friend and family that I was going to hike the 3rd highest peak in the Appalachians ALONE, they didn’t really give it much thought.  Truth be told, I am not sure that many of them EVEN heard what I said.

Yep.  I’m that lazy. Continue reading
