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 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! ~Pearls xoxo

I've been going through something the last week. And if you know me well enough you know I can talk about anything except the very things I need to talk about. I mean, don't get me wrong, I've gotten better... Continue Reading →

Chaos Theory

It's been five years and not a single day will go by with the realization that my dad isn't a phone call away. But, as the death of his anniversary is remembered I've come to understand something else: this chaos... Continue Reading →

One More Year 2019

Dear Pearl, Today you embark on a new year, a new chapter, a new start. Today will become a stepping stone of what you've already accomplished in the last two. But, before I begin to motivate you into not giving... Continue Reading →

For the Love of Becoming

Thirty-two days into the new year and I have come to realize that beingspontaneous may not be a bad thing. Just because you plan everything outdoesn't mean it'll come to pass. Take the first thirty-one days of 2019. Most of... Continue Reading →

Faith Building

It's been a hot minute since I've written but I've been feeling a stirring that I'm hoping I can get off my chest. I'm an introvert. As an introvert when I begin to get discouraged or life seems to be... Continue Reading →

For the Love of 2018

I tried to find a word that could sum up 2018. Inconsistent. Blessed. Erratic. Hopeful. Exhausting. Adventuresome. Roller coaster. Growth Emotional. Truth be told, finding a word to sum up the year is nearly impossible.  We entered this year with... Continue Reading →
