TV With The Hubbs

Late night TV with my hubby.

Nothing like snuggling up and catching up on some Discovery channel…and Golden Girls! :D

The more time goes on I realize just why we’re together…

The Angel at the Grocery Store

About 2 years ago I got up early one spring morning and decided to head out and get some groceries. It was around 9 a.m. when I got there. I grabbed a cart and went about my way, picking up all sorts of items based on what we were out of at home, or things that I thought would be a great selection in general.

Thirty minutes later I headed to the check out and put all of my items up on the little…

I was so please this morning when I woke to find the book I had pre-ordered a month or so ago had downloaded to my phone.  I did intend to get up and walk this morning, but I found myself reading the first few pages and then getting so engrossed in the book, if I wasn’t supposed to be at work I would have stayed there and read the…

HE LIFTS US UP: Work: Whatever You Do…

Originally posted on ChristianBlessings:

Many go to work every day…
heavyhearted and unhappy all the way.
Others truly love what they do…
singing and happy all the way through.
Then others are really feeling at a loss…
love their job but have an abusive boss.
Then countless others have lost their jobs…
feeling like their entire careers been robbed.
So whichever are you and wherever you fall…

A Shift In Perspective

Since my last post…

It seems as if a shift in perspective is what I’ve been needing for so very long.

So much has changed in my 29 years.

I was highly recognized in high school, graduated with honors, accepted into many universities/colleges, and soared in college I chose in many academic groups as well as the Dean’s list.

I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder in 2004 at age 19, following some…

What I Know Now…

I have felt like the woman on the right side of this image countless times. If I were able to somehow speak to the child-me, I would have so much to say…so much to warn her about more than anything. I would offer any guidance, best I could. What if we could go back in time?

I was this little girl on the left many years ago, only chubby with glasses. There was a path laid before me, full of…

Stability Is a Way of Life

Following up with yesterday’s post…

I’ve decided I do not want a job or to go down a path of career. Money means nothing to me. I know I must be able to get by-and I am, but I have no desire to become a certified corporate example of success. I’m not that invincible, giddy, highly impulsive, 18 year old girl now. I am a 29 year old woman in an entirely different place in life, worlds away from…

This Fire In My Veins

I don’t know where the hell I’m going with my life.

A life rant for today.

I’m almost 30 and have no degree or career experience to show for it. The Bipolar mess I’ve become over this past decade has hindered me from so much. My therapist says I hide behind my diagnosis, but I disagree. She has no clue how my anxiety levels rise when I even entertain the thought of rejoining the outside world.…

My Own Agenda: a poem

Some might say I laugh at the wrong times, or a little too loudly.

But each day I pick it all back up and wear my smile proudly.

Perhaps it’s just that I don’t’ keep up with the times

But when I look in the mirror I see I’m created by The Divine.

Some people say that money makes the world go around.

But I know that my inheritance, on the Cross, was nailed down.

The things of this world are sure…
