Please vote

I really wish that everyone felt their voice counted and would vote. I understand why some people don’t feel this way. I understand that there are people out there who feel that winning is the only object, and don’t care if they have to lie, cheat, or steal votes to win. And the only way . . . → Read More: Please vote

Decisions Decisions

What do you do when you have decisions to make? I seem to have a bit of “analysis paralysis.” I would advise a friend to “listen to your gut” if they were in my position, and yet I feel like so much is going on right now that I can’t figure out what my gut . . . → Read More: Decisions Decisions

Writing

I belong to a writing group that really floats my boat. It is all women (not that there is anything wrong with men, but it feels good and safe just the way it is), and we generally meet once a month. We don’t all make it every time, and that’s okay – life continues to . . . → Read More: Writing

I am doing the best that I can

I often feel that I am just not living up to what I should be living up to. I feel like I “should” be doing this, or I “should” be doing that. Maybe the issue is that I really don’t know what it is that I am supposed to be living up to. Or maybe . . . → Read More: I am doing the best that I can

Turn about is fair play

I am very tired of hearing this from people: “Why didn’t she come forward sooner? Why did she wait so long?” Have you been paying attention? Have you seen how people treat someone who comes forward with rape or harassment charges? It must be one of the scariest things in the world to do, to . . . → Read More: Turn about is fair play

Is there a reason for everything?

Bad things happen to good people, and it can be hard to figure out why. Could it be it is hard to figure it out because there really isn’t a reason? Maybe the reason someone got sick or got fired isn’t because of something they did or didn’t do, or because it would make them . . . → Read More: Is there a reason for everything?

Fear

There are some things that are important for me to do that I can’t seem to get done. It has been driving me crazy, and I think I may have figured it out. It is fear that is holding me back: fear of the unknown, fear that I will not do it right, fear of . . . → Read More: Fear

RIP John McCain

John McCain died last week; he will most certainly be missed. I didn’t always agree with what he said and did, but most of the time he seemed to be doing it because he thought it was best for the country. He really seemed to have a love of this country that transcended political parties. . . . → Read More: RIP John McCain

Fairness

I have an intense sense of fairness, and while this may seem like a good thing, sometimes it is not. The world is not always fair; sometimes bad things happen to good people, people who don’t do the right thing are rewarded, while people who do the right thing get punished. I struggle with this . . . → Read More: Fairness

There is no “other”

What do you stand for? It’s an important thing to know. Regardless of your politics, religion, or anything else, what do believe?

I believe we are all one, and that we all don’t realize this yet. It is a concept that, once recognized by all, is going to help make this world a better place. . . . → Read More: There is no “other”
