More women speak out

One more time, then I am done with this topic. Now more and more women are coming forward. I really want to believe all of them, but I am starting to have my doubts. I wish we could rely on everyone – men and women – to tell the truth about these things, but we . . . → Read More: More women speak out

Why did these women wait so long to tell their stories?

There are a lot of women coming out of the darkness and telling us about how they were abused, assaulted, and harassed. There are a lot of people who are saying that these things happened a long time ago and why didn’t these women come out sooner with these allegations.

Come on people! The reason . . . → Read More: Why did these women wait so long to tell their stories?

Do I want to know, or do I want to be in the dark?

These days I can’t decide if I want to be an informed citizen or I want to be kept in the dark. Of course, I really do want to be informed, but I sometimes have a hard time digesting everything that is going on in our country right now.

I am absolutely flabbergasted at how . . . → Read More: Do I want to know, or do I want to be in the dark?

I am not always the person I want to be

I am not always the person I want to be. I want to be that person who can keep her cool no matter what happens – I am working on it, and I am not there yet. I want to be the person who truly wishes all people the best, regardless of how they have . . . → Read More: I am not always the person I want to be

There is so much political crap happening these days – sometimes I just want to ignore it all. And yet, I can’t.

One thing I am learning (or trying to learn) is how to keep my equilibrium through these rough times. I want to continue to strive to be the person I want to be. . . . → Read More: I strive to be the me I am meant to be

Don’t say it if you don’t mean it

Yes, it is a pet peeve of mine. Please don’t say things you have no intention of following through on. Don’t tell me, “We need to get together for coffee and to catch up – I’ll get back to you with a date,” and then disappear for years. I know things happen that make it . . . → Read More: Don’t say it if you don’t mean it

Holding a grudge?

I try to not hold a grudge. However, there ARE some things that have happened to me that I don’t necessarily want to forget, basically in order to protect myself against them happening to me again. I don’t think that means I am holding a grudge – at least in my mind. I think I . . . → Read More: Holding a grudge?

I am waking up

Boy, a week goes by quickly – it is time for a new blog post already!

Due to some personal issues, I have been in a kind of fog for the last couple years. It’s not that I haven’t known what is going on, it’s just that I haven’t really felt like doing a lot . . . → Read More: I am waking up

Protest

I really don’t want to get too political here, but I am getting pretty tired of people deciding that what NFL players are doing is disrespectful of the flag and veterans. This was never about disrespecting the flag. These people are doing what they are doing in order to draw attention to something that is . . . → Read More: Protest

An apology is in order

I am embarrassed about something that I did last week, and am committed to getting through this the best that I can, even though it is embarrassing.

I will spare you the details, but the main part of it is that I had a bad experience with an establishment, and actually yelled at someone on . . . → Read More: An apology is in order
