So, I’ve lost myself in my work, but not for long…

So, I have been on the job 5 weeks and wow. Every second of the day I am busy texting, emailing and calling, so I have no extra time. I squeeze in a call with my honey before and after work and a tiny bit in between but I have no time to write. That…

So, Writing is my elixir- a poem

Writing is my elixir Writing for me is like breathing, it sustains me It gives me shelter from the metaphorical storm When I am in doubt or despair it changes everything The atmospheric pressure shifts in my favor I am the true definition of winning because with "it" I rule So why not write all…

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, what is life’s purpose? Or,why are we here?

So, the whole life's purpose question. What are we as humans doing here? What are we supposed to accomplish during our wonderful but (seemingly) short time on earth? More importantly, I think at least, what is our purpose individually? Do you know yours? I know one thing, I am here to set a better example…

So, the old adage is true! Attitude is EVERYTHING…

So, I have this super sweet and kind friend who works at my neighborhood grocery store. She is the customer service manager and has worked there for the 14 years it has been open. She was a stay at home mom/seamstress until both of her sons finished high school and started work at this store…

So, I am not a “woe is me” kind of girl, but my family really sucks… (warning this is long)

So, I don't have a great family. I don't really talk about it a lot. My mom has helped me a lot over the last 8-10 years as I have been a single mom and have had contract jobs and have needed financial help from time to time. But I have always been the kid…

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 have this restless desire to get EVERYTHING organized, stat!

So, I am a self-proclaimed organized person. But I haven't truly been that organized over the last few years. If I had, my house wouldn't have gotten so allergy ridden. I would have not accumulated as much crap as I have and I would be in better financial shape. But I am not perfect, so…

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…
