Life: The Ultimate Struggle

You've probably heard 'ism's like "The Struggle is real"...because the truth is that we are all struggling in some way.  I know I have heard the statement that "everyone is fighting a battle of some kind", and I know that it is absolutely true.  However, everyone that fights a battle seems to feel like they … Continue reading Life: The Ultimate Struggle

Living With Opinions…

I've given a considerable amount of thought to this post. The truth is that we live with opinions every day. Our own, our relatives' opinions, our kids' opinions, and society's opinions, all make up our everyday living world. Even our laws, which seem somehow so concrete, are based on underlying opinions. Someone's opinion of right … Continue reading Living With Opinions…

Red Light… Green Light…Red Light…

People need to take a few minutes and put on the brakes. We could all benefit from reminding ourselves that we don't all like the same things. Sometimes we feel very strongly about our like, or dislike, of things. When does our like, or dislike, cross a line? I know it might be an opinion, … Continue reading Red Light… Green Light…Red Light…

Aaaack…

If you ever read the comic strip Cathy, the title is a total reference.  I get it, completely.  I've begun to look around at the things and people in my life, and the exclamation fits my life to a tee.  Some days I want to throw my hands in the air and scream. I give … Continue reading Aaaack…

The Saga of Angry Amy Continues…

Sixth grade!! Magical words, they were, and music to Angry Amy's ears. Junior high was finally here, and she could, at last, participate in a more grown up world. No more recess and tiny desks for her! She would get a locker, and she would get to change clothes for gym class. The last thought … Continue reading The Saga of Angry Amy Continues…

The Saga and Drama of Angry Amy…

Once there was a girl named Amy.  Amy was angry, all the time!  She was so angry that people began to call her Angry Amy, and the name stuck like glue.  Angry Amy didn't ever seem to have anything to be happy about, and it seemed doubtful that she had ever liked anything in her … Continue reading The Saga and Drama of Angry Amy…

New Look and Upgrade

I decided to take a step forward and make the plunge with this blog. Make no mistake. This is still a personal page for me, and a spot to elaborate on my personal thought bubbles. I find that I work through things best with my writing. However, in the upcoming weeks and months, I will … Continue reading New Look and Upgrade

Notafinga…

I'm not really angry, but am sure at a loss for words. It doesn't feel good inside to consistently feel misunderstood. It's like there's this me on the inside who is constantly screaming and is never heard...at least not truly. Do I hear it in people's voices when they speak to me? You betcha! The … Continue reading Notafinga…

Please fund MY dream…

We live in an age of "GoFundMe" and "Crowdrise" and other personal fundraising type sites where, literally, people can beg for money for just about anything. Don't misunderstand me, I am a charitable individual, and I have done plenty of fundraising in my day. In fact, I currently fundraise for a non-profit organization that raises … Continue reading Please fund MY dream…
