Showing Gratitude

Do you ever wonder how you can really thank someone for being in your life?



Most people would buy a gift, show affection, verbally express their love, or perform a gesture that only that person may understand. When I want to show my gratitude for something someone has done for me, I simply do something for them in return. It fills me with joy to do things in a big way but along the years I have also learned that doing smaller things is also effective. I believe giving and receiving… Continue

I look in the mirror and dont see the person looking back... This person scares me and I him. If I hate who I am this much I dont want to image how others see me. I get so tired of looking at this person it hurts in ways I cant believe. I'm tired of all the things this person does because of an "idea" of who they should be... Why cant I just be ME why.......why......why..... Because I'm scared of what it would do to others not just me.... but if I want something why cant I have it, because I'm… Continue

Miracle on Guy Street

People dream impossible dreams, I have but one.



I want the love of my life in my arms for Christmas. I want him to tell me he loves me, that everything will be ok.



I want him to build my beautiful home with the tractor in the back yard and have all my children with me for Christmas.



No more lies, no more tears, no more pain.



I want to find the love in his heart as he once had for me.



I want him to look me in the eyes and tell me how special… Continue

He Spoke To Me Last Night

If I could find a way to fill my heart today, it would be with you.

If I could find a way to make you understand, my words would flow.

If I could find a way to have you feel me, I would smile for eternity.

If I could see your face upon mine, I would be free of pain.

If I could have your lips touch mine, we would love forever.

As my spirit is lost I can only write what my empty thoughts are today and so it goes.

Deleting or Ignoring: Which Is Better?

When you are left with emptiness and sorrow, how do you survive? How do you face each day? It was suggested that when the one you love the most doesn't love you back to use every way possible to delete them. With the technology we have, blocking emails, blocking messenger, erasing all information of that certain someone would seem like an easy task. But when the feelings are so profound one seems to forget that you cannot just delete them out of your… Continue

Determination or Struggle: Which would you chose?

When we look at these two words, they are two in the same. When you go through different struggles in your life, you find the spirit somewhere deep inside and are determined to make things better. Life brings us all kinds of challenges and we must all rise above that struggle. There a certain things that can bring you back from your loss; children, snow falling, a smile from a total stranger, kind words when you least expect it but most of all it is when you find yourself doing something really… Continue

Forgetting The Memories

When faced with fear and memories, it is like a big bolt of lightning striking through my body. I cannot see the reality of life only the pain and struggles I endure. There is no bigger fear than losing your mind but for me I would like to see all of my memories go away. I am sad; Christmas is but a week away and it has always been the best time of year for me. I also have a birthday coming and this year it all means nothing. I have lost all spirit, love, happiness and as much as I write about… Continue

Arguments: Saying what you mean



Why do people argue over the smallest thing? Does it make them feel better, more powerful, or are they just frustrated over things that really mean something to them?



I have never been able to verbally express my feelings, my angry or hurt feelings that is and I sometimes envy those that can. But most people I have met or know argue by using extreme yelling and screaming. I have been single for over 1 ½ years and not by choice.… Continue

Acceptance vs Change: Is it really important?

Do we accept who we are or are we constantly trying to change? Humans, men and women alike are always trying to evolve into something else. From the time we are born, we are conditioned to make something of ourselves and grow with the rest of the world. We follow rules and regulations and at times find determination to slip through the cracks. But what happens when you become something you are not?



What if for just one day everyone would change who they are in the present time? Would… Continue

Where did all the memories go?

As I woke at 6:30am, I watched the sky. I remembered how much I loved my purple sky and had not seen it for quite sometime. It was the 13th again, and there is always a sign telling me I will be ok.

My Purple Sky–When I was in my relationship a few ago, the love of my life had told me one night that the next morning I would wake up and there would be a purple sky for me. I thought he was crazy but the romantic gesture was something to talk about… Continue

Judgement: Do we really know?

Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

Oscar Wilde


There will come a time in your life when all will be clear in your mind and in your heart. But until that day, we spend most of our time evaluating what we have done or accomplished. True to form, we continue on a path of determination, strength, ambition, and for some of us, the road to happiness. How is it that at one point we find ourselves in a cross roads unable to proceed with much-needed direction? When our… Continue

Pay it forward

Today I am sending out this worldwide message. Do you ever sit and just thinking about the unknown people who blog, tweet, facebook, myspace and wonder what they are all about? Many people, for whatever reason, sit at their computer desk typing important information, seek out new social networks and never get anywhere with it. They are searching for just one person to notice them and at some point they find themselves lost. They ask:

“How can I… Continue

Revelations: Is There Hope?

Putting aside your feelings for the sake of someone else’s is not always a good thing. You destroy theinner beauty, the very soul that lives within you and you can never take it back. I am such a victim, I can tell you my heart has never been the same. I have given up so much of my life for this one person, that I have become not only lost but have lost strength and belief in who I am.

For awhile, I was beginning to find my inner self and I know… Continue

REJECTION: Reality or Vitality?

The definition of rejection: "to refuse to accept, consider, submit to, and take for some purpose"



The definition of pain: "An unpleasant sensation occurring in varying degrees of severity as a consequence of injury, disease, or emotional disorder"









What I see in this by definition is the same thing. To refuse is unpleasant sensation what someone does not want to give, share, or even attempt to make you happy.… Continue

What if tomorrow never comes?

Someone sent this to me a while back, and I thought it was a reminder to all of you who have given up: "One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't "anymore". No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute." Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all… Continue
