I haven’t Forgotten You, My Friends …

It’s been a crazy ride the last few months …most of the time, I have just hung on for dear life or thrown my hands up and screamed …sometimes melted into a little puddle on the floor …but not that often🙃 With the holidays over …visiting friends and relatives departed …a close friend with a […]

Madder than a Wet Hen …

As any Southern would understand …the dark clouds were blowin’ up a storm… The journey up to that point had been beyond exhausting …airports…airports and more airports …from Port Elizabeth, a 3:30 pm flight to Johannesburg …a 3-hour layover…11 1/2-hour Flight to Heathrow with a 5-hour layover…an 8-hour flight to Dulles …2 days and no […]

Flying Free …

“If you want to fly in the sky, you need to leave the earth. If you want to move forward, you need to let go the past that drags you down.” Amit Ray, World Peace: The Voice of a Mountain Bird This is difficult writing …my diagnosis of having ADHD … I started therapy for support […]

Waiting is the Difficult Part…until you breathe

“Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is “timing” it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.” Fulton J. Sheen Never one for being patient …it has seemed waiting for the therapist…waiting for healing …it has seemed that all I have […]

Not My Monkey…Not My Circus

I almost laughed out loud when my therapist spoke those words aloud…I had been upset because I had been trying to control something/someone that I had no control over…being an Empath has always muddied the waters by feeling the emotions of others …always devoting my precious energy to trying to thinking, ruminating over and over […]

Burning to Emerge…

When I started writing about my “climb up the mountain” of weight loss…there was nowhere in my wildest and crazy thought processes that I could envision where it would take me on my soul’s journey…  “Don’t hoard the past. Don’t cherish anything. Burn it. The artist is the phoenix who burns to emerge.” – Janet […]

Walking the Path…

When I started writing about my weight loss journey…little did I know that it would take me through this dark journey…and never would have thought about sharing…but I do so in the hope that it may be a guiding star in someone else’s darkness… I cry almost every day, right now …and often feel like […]

Atomic Habits…

Atomic Habits…a book written by James Clear is one of the best books that I have read on the importance of tiny habits making a dramatic difference in our lives… I saw my dietician last Friday…three days ago…I had gained some since I first saw her in February…but now I am in a different place…more […]

Conversations…My Dragon & I

“Don’t fight your demons. Your demons are here to teach you lessons. Sit down with your demons and have a drink and a chat and learn their names and talk about the burns on their fingers and scratches on their ankles. Some of them are very nice.” Charles Bukowski Making peace with one’s self is […]
