I love feeling certain with my position. My certainty doesn't mean I am correct, it means I made the decision to research hard enough to feel confident. I'm not a fan of assumptions or probabilities. Both are on shaking ground even with over 90% going in siding with that positions. So what other course of... Continue Reading →
I have been gone a very long time. I have had my fair share of ups and downs the last few years( the subject of my new four book series), but being the optimistic Buddhist I am, I needed every moment of it. I learned triggers for bad behavior I didn't know I had( no... Continue Reading →
I’m not going to go over all the wonderful contributions Martin Luther King Jr gave to the world. His accomplishments are well documented in movies, books and Wikipedia. I’m here to talk about my hope for his legacy and what I take from the life of this great man. And the most important thing I have received from his life is that he was flawed. This might sounds horrible for those who just stop there but read on and I will explain.
I’ve written about this before in my amazing blog post that no one read Snowflakes on my tongue, but the flaws of a great man show how my flaws aren’t a big deal.

Thank you to all my followers. New blog post with lots of energy and thought will return June 1st. It will be worth the wait.
Ever been dumped because the other guy said " You deserve better," or " I just don't think I can give you what you want." I know I have with a whole host of reasons that are about what I want and deserve. They feel that they aren't on my level or that I have... Continue Reading →
There is a great song by Jazime Sullivian called "Famous." In the song she talked about the dream of having it all. She mentions wanting the girls to see her and dream to be like her because she is famous. She talks about the pain of wanting is so bad and all she would do... Continue Reading →
I can't say that all of my post will be thought provoking but this one was begging to be written. I recently fell in love with a survivor. Through no fault of his own, he was born to a family that also only knew how to survive. Joy was still plenty by the stories he... Continue Reading →
