My Well(ness)

A recent article claimed the world is sadder and angrier than ever. I don’t know if this is true or not. I don’t know if people are sadder and angrier. I just know that I don’t really care. I’ve reached a point of being beyond wanting to deal with everyone else’s issues. I am not…

Life Bittersweet

Embrace life E m b r a ce  L i f e EMBRACELIFE Whichever way I look at it, it’s still the same. Phrase Expression Mantra I suppose in order to embrace life one must recognize life for what it is. It’s easy to embrace something attractive. But, how do you embrace something ugly as…

Here … and Nowhere

I’ve got that feeling again. And I’ve had to check myself and remind myself, again and again, that I am not my thoughts. I am not my thoughts. I’ve been sinking deeper and deeper into myself. Deeper into the place where I believe I truly live. I used to go there regularly and at will….

Bring the Pain

2019. The world is insane and going to hell in a hand basket. So it’s been said. It would be so easy to jump on the bandwagon of how troubling the times are in which we live. Too easy. The problem with that is the necessity to stick to a few chosen areas of agreement…

What if…

I have had more than my share of making the best of crap situations. At least I believe I’ve had more than my share. Let’s just say I’ve been through some shit and I’ve been in the shits. I can’t pretend I am anywhere near as despondent as I once was and I can’t imagine…

My Prescription

  Something I have never been is sickly. Something else I have never been is patient with those who are sickly. I don’t mean sickly in the diagnosed with a major disease kind of way. I mean the kind of person who always seems to be catching something or getting over something. I have also…

i want to LIVE

  I’ve been away from this space for more than a minute and while my absence was not intentional, it was necessary. My last post was about me reaching my limit and no longer allowing people to occupy my intellectual and emotional space. It was about me realizing, finally, that I’ve been derelict in my…
