Dear Family that stood still

Dear Family that stood still, I would love to credit you for doing nothing but your inaction was actually an action. The responsibility of an adult is to protect children, whether they are your own or not. It’s your responsibility to protect people that… Continue Reading “Dear Family that stood still”

My Eulogy

There are so many emotions around sharing this piece with the world. I actually wrote it last summer and asked a dear friend to read it in the event I was murdered. Even if we lost touch, I made him PROMISE to be the… Continue Reading “My Eulogy”

Reducing my recovery cycle from 3 weeks to 18 hours !!!

General terms: An abuser will come out to play and try to start trouble in my lane. They will say things to get me to question my reality. They will plant seeds to get me to question my sanity. They will plant a seed… Continue Reading “Reducing my recovery cycle from 3 weeks to 18 hours !!!”

Does time heal everything?! (No, consistency does)!

I’m presented with an interesting challenge. At this exact moment, there is another wave of people from my past that are resurfacing. There is a moderate chance it’s because I have been blasting my social media with living large (back to my globetrotting ways).… Continue Reading “Does time heal everything?!

Challenge Roma Triathlon (70.3) – race recap

This is my 3rd restart for writing… I have so many things in my heart that need to come out but I’m struggling to articulate what needs to be said. It’s not a matter of what I want to say. It’s embracing the frustration… Continue Reading “Challenge Roma Triathlon (70.3) – race recap”

A toxic person is someone that is blissfully unaware of their garbage. Putting others down is their way of life and… Continue Reading “Difference between toxic and abuse”

Reflections: The Abused Dog

I started writing about Mindfulness without Cynicism. The words were easy to write but not the message that my heart wanted to share. I could not hit publish. This is my restart. I’m forcing myself to share these words. But rather than a purge,… Continue Reading “Reflections: The Abused Dog”

The hidden​ benefit of letters of gratitude

I’ve been thinking about the current alignment of the planets and the moon… apparently, Mercury is in retrograde (again)? I’m not 100% sure but this seems to be code for the abundance of energy being thrown around! I’ve been learning about how some people… Continue Reading “The hidden​ benefit of letters of gratitude”

The day my childhood bedroom turned into a crime scene.

The crime: domestic violence The weapon: a loaded gun The victim: me (the daughter) The motive: unprocessed pain? uncontrolled anger? Tempers flying was the norm. “I’m not yelling! You want to hear yelling?!” was a regular tagline. So was, “Stop it or I’ll give… Continue Reading “The day my childhood bedroom turned into a crime scene.”
