This Script song has been stuck in my head since I heard it on Thursday. Its way poppy, cheesy, and corny. The reverb set on this mans voice, the soft simple harmonies that fit underneath, and the words that repeat soothe me in a "message fits here" spot. Some days those types of melodies keep your feet walking forward. I will never forget the first set of tunes that got my feet walking with purpose, Mr. Elton John, with his album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Subsequently, I went through a progression of piano players, as the sound of a piano sings to my soul like a rain storm. Music awakens me to thoughts and visions directing me to transcribe events into words with a creative necessity.
In our lives we follow the series of events and are masters of destiny in a precarious way. Control is just a plank we stand on over an infinity of opportunities. Don't be afraid of that singular ...
|That Day... a personal account. |
Posted: Oct 13, 2011 - 6:32pm
Yesterday I was talking with a true friend about that day. She asked me if I had sent you a message telling you all the things I thought about our encounter. I have sent you thoughts, but I also I know I haven't revealed my true feelings to you. I have tried. I let your lack of connection or response guide my actions. My heart is guarded, I blame history and I label it damage control. If I choose to live there, what will I get in return? The same. A cold hell that only echos a voice of longing and desire, with none of the vibrations being able to exit that room. Sad lonely tones of my own ...

I have absolutely NO troubles. My life is handing me oranges and I am making lemonade out of them.
How do you stop your madness? Help....

|A defining moment |
Posted: Feb 20, 2011 - 3:21am
All my life I have found amazing things and then lost them. All my life I have loved deeply. It’s not an option; it’s who I am. I am not sure that fits most people’s definition of love. I may not be the person who collects souvenirs, but I do understand their value. I may not be the person who follows tradition, but I know that new traditions may be my life’s value. I may not be the most beautiful person on the outside, but inside I mean something to everyone that sees me, good or bad. I think that sticking with knowing myself has hardened me in a lot of ways. Choosing to be a single mom reminds me of that stubbornness. I haven’t ever really suffered. I am still not sure I know who I am, but that may just be instability of my physical circumstance in the now. I have been stubborn to stick by my choices always. I choose to believe in people, no matter what. Even when they lie to me and let me down. I had an ...

I am in an interesting position right now. The universe has put me to the test. Its giving me exactly what I asked for in some ways and denied me completely in others. does anyone really have an answer why we must suffer to succeed???? how do you believe in yourself???
i recently learned to reward myself with the knowledge everything happens for a reason and I am destined for greatness.

|Single Parent Doubts |
Posted: Dec 1, 2010 - 1:05pm
I have been hitting the wall lately with a thought that is dragging me down. I chose to be a single mother and now that things are beginning to get interesting I feel like I may not have done the boy or myself justice in choosing to keep him. There were just so many signs from the universe in the direction of having that kind of love in my life. Recently, I find myself being selfish, self pitying and feeling lonely.
He is a joy, full of hope and dreams. I know he isn’t unhappy mostly. I do hear him saying, “Mommy play with me more”. And there is the guilt of not having enough time to spend with him as well. Being a single parent isn’t for the meek! I do have the strength to accomplish, but I am feeling run down.

I always wanted to be that person that could be accepting and non-judgemental of the people I love. I have come a long way in that department. I just don't feel that I have made it completely. I continually listen to self help. I am working on my self esteem every day. How is it I have "expectations" and regret? Riddle me this.

|Self Employment Training |
Posted: Sep 17, 2010 - 9:19am
Yep. I have started Self Employment Training. I am ready to head out on my own at some point in the near future. For now? I am in training!
So many ideas rolling around in my head in the process of writing this business plan, marketing plan, networking, etc. This training provides education in writing these plans, along with cash-flow projections, etc. As a requirement for my "homework", I am looking for some "interview" style feedback. I have to do research on people that are self employed. (My field consists of, Illustration, Graphics, Retail Production, Marketing, Advertising, etc). Questions like, why are you self employed, how long have you had your own business, etc.from people that own their own businesses.
Are there any of you willing to share some information with me? Please leave me a message or a PM so that I can connect with you on this. I am grateful to have a place i can get some sage advice about how to walk down ...

|Send Positive Vibes... thank you for pushing them through! |
Posted: Aug 31, 2010 - 8:42pm
I established an intention to take two classes this fall. I was hoping that part of the funding would come from a job that was requested from me in July. I have yet to settle the "particulars" of this project. Now I am in jeopardy of not being able to follow through with my desire of pursuing this next step.
Please send positive vibes in regards to creating the necessary funds to move to the next level. I believe it will show up at the time I need it. I need you to believe it also.
Thank you so much for all your positive energy.

While in the shower today I reflected upon something a "life trainer" had to say to me. "Always remember the child inside."
As I look back to childhood, the things I remember most are my vivid imagination and belief system that anything was possible. The world was full of magic. Older now and bit more beaten down, I am having a difficult time finding the "magic" in life, even in the face of beautiful events and loving moments.
How do you revive the magic of childhood in your life, outside of your pets or children or friends. For your true inner self, how do you revive your "magic"?

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however ...
