I see you

Hi. I see you. 👀 You. Walking down the street, looking like you have it all. Coifed hair. Nice shoes. Perfect makeup. Good job. Good relationship. Nice car. Pretty house. 2.5 kids, dog, picket fence. Glazed over eyes, just going through the motions. Numb. Numbing yourself with Facebook, instagram, candy crush. I see you. YouContinue reading “I see you”

I’m pressed but not crushed

Do you know that song? It’s been racing through my head for two days now…but I digress. At the beginning of the blog. Oy vey. The ebb and flow of life is really interesting to me. Some days are amazing and some days I’m amazed I remember to breathe. Right now, I’m in a crucible/pressingContinue reading “I’m pressed but not crushed”

Desert Time

Hey there! So…I’ve been MIA. A lot has been going on in my world, causing me to neglect my first passion…which is writing. There are times when I want to shout from the mountaintops what is going on…and times when I’m huddled in my turtle shell, well…just hiding in my shell. The past few weeksContinue reading “Desert Time”

The Power of YOU

Yesterday started off so well. My morning was super productive. I felt like a million bucks. Then…I don’t know what happened. My energy drained from me, like I unplugged the stopper in a bathtub. I had been celebrating a victory…a small battle won that felt like a hard fought victory for the good guys. ButContinue reading “The Power of YOU”

God’s interested in the small things

Sunday, I had an experience that reminded me of who I am. While I was looking at pictures, remembering a great day, I saw a picture of me wearing earrings that I used to wear on the daily. I had a passing thought of how I missed wearing them which left my head as quicklyContinue reading “God’s interested in the small things”

My inner badass escaped!

When I started my job, my intention was to keep up with the flow of blogging that I had going before I started. Well…obviously that didn’t happen. I’m not going to give you a bullshit excuse about why I didn’t do what I intended. I dropped the ball. I got overly focused on the job.Continue reading “My inner badass escaped!”

Grooving

Well…last week was a whirlwind, to say the least. If you’d talked to me on Monday, I would’ve told you a completely different version of my life than what actually transpired. I didn’t have time to process what occurred, and that literally blew my Type A Virgo mind to smithereens by Friday. I slept itContinue reading “Grooving”

Stalled out

A long time ago, I had a car that I lovingly called the blue bomb. Friends gave her to me. It was a beater Subaru…banged up door, years past its prime. I was thankful for the blue bomb. There was one catch with it at the beginning. It had a standard transmission. I was anContinue reading “Stalled out”

International Women’s Day

Today is a day set aside to celebrate women. How awesome is that? I’ve always been more of a tomboy…I’d rather watch an action adventure flick than a chick flick. You can catch me on Sunday screaming my head off watching the Patriots instead of doing whatever people do when they’re not watching football. I’veContinue reading “International Women’s Day”

The apocalypse is here!

In Philly, every time there is a snow event, you’d think the apocalypse is on its way. Even though it snows every single year. Bread, eggs, milk and water fly off the shelves. Liquor stores are flooded with those who want to numb their time “trapped” indoors. The local news stations go all out, sendingContinue reading “The apocalypse is here!”
