When you give good you get good…

So the other day I had a small rant about getting what you give. It isn't only about the Debbie downer part of that saying that people should hear. You literally get what you give. Especially with the good. I'm human. Bad stuff happens to me just like everyone else. In the past, if anything …

Inch by inch…

To elaborate on my previous post about taking steps, I thought I'd share the results from the last time I took a huge leap of faith. For years, I worked in a job I was really good at. The job was easy for me but had social components that killed me in so many ways. …

When you wish upon a star…

Have you ever looked up at the stars at night and made a wish? I used to think it was a thing only children did. To believe looking at a star and telling it your desires seems foolish. But the more I thought about it, I realized there could be much more to this idea. …

Moving on…

There are times when you give everything and it isn't enough. Whether it's a romantic or professional partnership, when there isn't an equal give and take, it's time to walk away to find a better match. Some people stay in these relationships for too long. I know I've been guilty of staying when I should …

Heartbreaker

I've been very lucky in life. I've found love almost as easily as I've given it. That being said, as many know, with the mountaintops of life come the valleys. Although I've loved much, I've also endured a lot of heartbreak. When my life takes a trip to the valleys it is easy to get …

The Stars Above Me

I have loved the stars so very fondly, but fear the darkness that will inevitably meet me. So many times I have welcomed the moon and found nothing but nightmares. I bask in the sunlight. It is only then I can count on my daydreams to take me to a better place, A place filled …

What’s love got to do with it?

'I love you' has changed so much through the ages. I love you in medieval times meant risking death if you loved someone other than your betrothed. God forbid you fall in love with someone whom you weren't arranged right? But people followed their hearts and risked everything when they said 'I love you'. This …
