I seriously hate writing about me. What do you tell people? The customary who I am, where I'm from? Those are all well and fine but gets kinda redundant, doesn't it?
If you want to know me, come read a long. I'm an open book - or at least try to be.
I took a writing class recently and the one thing that I’ve clung to was the statement, “You’re either a writer or not. There isn’t anything aspiring about it.” So, here I am, writing.
I try to write a little about everything. I should one day find my niche, one day. I figure, if I keep writing eventually it’ll come. Mostly I write to help inspire. This world can be a pretty damn scary place to live in.The hate crimes. The sexual violence. The bombings and shootings. I want to be able to shed some hope. Even just a sliver. Something to help someone take another step in their day. I started this blog in the hopes I could help change a dark and hatred filled world. I'm not exactly sure I'm actually doing it or not. But, I'm trying.
I also write to get the practice I need. Sometimes I’ll be sweet and awe inspiring. Other times I’ll show a bit of my true self with some dripping sarcasm and stupid humor. Then there are other times I just don’t make sense. Bear with me!
When you come across my page, please feel free to leave me comments - about anything. Open forum. Open door. Open, open, open. I like having discussions about feelings (ya right) and hearing opinions of others about what I write. And other times, it’s just nice to know that someone out there goes through some of the same things I do.
Thanks bunches in taking the time to stop on by! xoxo

"Temper, temper. I wouldn't dream of challenging you." My favorite movie growing up was Lion King. I couldn't watch the part where Mufasa died. I'd literally fast forward or I'd cry. To this day I could recite the movie and... Continue Reading →
How do you gain the upper hand? I ask that as I sit here feeling sorry for myself. No kidding. I keep peaking at my project I've been pouring my soul into and seeing how absolutely stupid it is. I... Continue Reading →
You know, as I sit here stewing, I'm beginning to find humor in the situation. The world has some pretty shady people in it. I already knew that. But, with the struggles of fighting an up hill battle at work... Continue Reading →
Around this time last year I was going through something that kinda cut me at my knees. I mean it was a gut wrenching, wind knocked out of you, so dizzy the world keeps spinning kind of thing. It was... Continue Reading →
Dear Dad, Did you love me like you did Jack, Tiff and RJ? I know. What a question. But, today, on what would have been your 62nd birthday I wonder. I always do when I have a minute to think... Continue Reading →
