Conversations with self whilst others help me look for my smile…

Sometimes all I need is having someone smile when my name pops up on their phone. ┬áI have friends sprinkled around the world. I’m extremely blessed because some of these friends have become my family. Actually, all of them are in my heart space….

Broken vs Evil… is there a difference?

I started this entry on August 31. It was a few days after I left ‘home’. My mother was having open heart surgery and that meant I had to deal with the most manipulative person in the entire world (her son). Her son had…

My higher self is my best friend

I’m not even going to pretend. Most of my life is in autopilot. This has served me well because I cannot remember the last time that I was in normal situations. When greeted with dysfunction, I tighten my ponytail, smile, and navigate the sea…
