So, when your mom gets ill, you realize how wack taking her (or anyone) for granted is…

So, I am a good daughter. Really, I am. But I am impatient with my mom. We have that 30 year difference, and she is just not like me at all. I am high energy and I don't sleep a lot and I care about being healthy and I am the opposite of sedentary. She…

So, I have gotten really good at faking it (not what you may be thinking)

So, I am not talking about in terms of romantic escapades or pretending to be something that I am not. I am talking about removing my feelings about a person/situation and just following their lead. I used to be so wrapped up in people not treating me well, or keeping in touch properly or just…

So, is there a difference between lying and deceit? Is one worse?

So, I consider myself a bad liar. I am a brutally honest kind of person, so not telling the truth pains me. But when it comes to my daughter, I will fly to the moon and back to protect her feelings. I have left her out of the loop quite a bit over the years…

So do you wear your ideology on your sleeve? Should you?

So, are you the type of person that lets everyone know where you stand in regards to things that mean the most to you? That could be religion, politics, your lifestyle, your commitment to veganism or helping animals. Many of us have at least one thing that we feel strongly about and once we get…

So being on a higher spiritual/emotional/intellectual plane has its cons…

So, I am not saying I am Oprah or Iyanla or Dalai Lama. I am just a thinker. A deep thinker. Even when I was at my most "ratchet" in my younger years, I always felt intensely. I am super emotional and I care more than most. I have a penchant for trying to help…

So, I was crying yesterday over lost pics and people around the world were crying too…

So, yesterday I took my 6-year-old laptop to be fixed because a Dell remote support person messed up my HP while trying to fix her Dell. Long story. Long, annoying and jacked up story. ML told me to take it in and get an appraisal to see if it was worth getting it fixed. I…

So, sometimes do you wish to be saved by someone?

I know, I know. I am a modern girl living in a modern world. So why does someone need to save me. They don't need to. I just want them to! I know the feminists out there are banging their heads and thinking I have stepped back into the 50's with this statement. I don't…

So, I can’t understand for the life of me why I find it so difficult to be alone with my thoughts…

I sat down to pray before going to bed the other night. The good old-fashioned kneeling down by the bed and sharing my thoughts silently with God. I can never do it for long. It's like I feel bad for asking, or I don't know what to say, or it makes the problem too real.…

Poetry can be found everywhere and in many things, even in blogging…

I was watching one of my new favorite spy shows today on my Amazon-The Americans, and I realized that the Russian language can be very beautiful and even poetic sounding. I was in the shower and listening to it and I think if I had been watching the people and listening, I would not have…
