I’ve seen this all over the web & social media… and although I haven’t been able to confirm they’re all from Oprah herself, I agree with each and every point… especially ones that I’ve bold-faced. Ladies… Know your value… and never, ever give yourself up – for anyone. xoxo If a man wants you, nothing […]
My online diary...
with no lock...
I'd lose the key anyway.
You know… it’s bad enough my heart screws me up almost all the time… but to have my brain join the party to really throw me off. Yeah, that’s so NOT fun. Like when I’m missing someone. Someone who treated me poorly during the entire time I was connected to them. Isn’t that dumb? Why […]
… ahahahaha! i *heart* this! I was with my son’s dad for 15 years… married for 11… then a few experiences after our split. That’s more than half my life with another person. And believe me, I’ve been on this planet much longer than many people believe, which means I’ve had a LOT of time […]
Recent conversation: Friend: What do you have planned for your Thanksgiving tablescape? Me: ……………….. huh? Understandably, the first associated word to pop into my mind was… “manscape”, but I figured that wasn’t quite what she was referring to (reference to Thanksgiving kinda gave that away). So I turned to good ole Google for some […]
Bored, Married Men Just as it says… they’re BORED. Same thing day in and day out… they believe impressing someone who is NOT their significant other (S.O.) will improve their lives. Never mind that investing just as much effort into who they share their bed with, could be the spark needed to improve their REAL […]
I’ve believed this for as long as I can remember… it’s what kept me going while surviving deaths in the family, a broken marriage, people I’ve trusted turning their backs on me… EVERYTHING. But the more I thought about this, it made me wonder… REALLY? Does a rapist commit the crime because it was “in […]
I’ve been stuck in a sort of “funk” the last few days, and I greatly dislike (« trying to limit my use of the word “hate”) being in that awful place. Here I am I’m doing the happy-go-lucky thang, then out of nowhere, I find myself repeatedly punched in the heart with questions such as… […]
There’s this boy… his name is Eddie. Eddie is a friend of the family from back when we lived in Chicago. Okay, this post isn’t about Eddie. It’s about his niece… Maria. Maria is a stay at home mom of 3 little boys ages 8mos, 2, and 3. Girlfriend runs 2 businesses, fought through eating/weight […]
If you’ve known/read me for more than a handful of months/posts, you’ve most likely already guessed that I’m an anime girl. Literally. I was born in Tokyo Japan & moved to the USA when I was a wee 7 year old sushi roll (wow, 18 years sure flies by!! *cough*). Anyway, even after many moons […]
Take care of yourself… build emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual strength… and work on healing. Especially with younger children. Kids pick up on your energy QUICKLY… they take their queues from you. So even if mom & dad aren’t together anymore, if they feel safe and secure with you, they will be OK. That’s not […]
