Refining Life's Ragged Edges

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

Not Enough Talk

Today I woke reading the sad news of another celebrity suicide. That is two in the last few days and my heart hurts thinking about it. I watch the news and see many people mourning the loss of these people.... Continue Reading →

International Virgin

So I finally did it. I took a step outside of the US. Ok, it isn't necessarily a big thing to some, but for me it's a tick off my ever evolving bucket list. I drove across the border and spent... Continue Reading →

Conversations

Sometimes I really think God laughs at the conversations that we have. Mostly because I am so bloody stubborn that I try to talk my way out of things that I know in my heart is right. Conversations like: "God,... Continue Reading →
