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

For the Love of 2018

For the Love of Strength

On Black Friday, in the middle of Target's electronics department I had one of the biggest panic attacks I've had in a long time. And no, it wasn't because it was over crowded. I didn't go there during an obscene... Continue Reading →

You Are Enough

You know, every now and then I slip. Not like, whoops, it was a little too soapy in the shower and I almost lost my balance. No. I mean slip like I'm going down a hill unable to fully maneuver... Continue Reading →

For the Love of Seasons

I failed, like completely this month. I've not posted a single blog. I've written but focused my attention on other things. With the month winding down, I wanted to post a very late October for the love of post. Stay... Continue Reading →

For The Love of Atonement

When the year began there was excitement. I expected the year to be absolutely unforgettable. I pictured myself getting established in the HR field. I imagined myself to have fulfilled a bunch of my dreams. As the first half of... Continue Reading →

Temper Tantrums

"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 →

That Tribe Thing

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 →
