I wish I was someone that could just do something mediocre and be ok with it. But I wasn’t born that way. It doesn’t matter what the task, how large or how small, I have to work at it until I achieve perfection. My husband reminded me today that ‘I have a problem’, which IContinue reading “November 22, 2020 – The pitfalls of being a perfectionist.”

November 16, 2020 – Head in the Sand
I wish I had stayed home today but I needed groceries so there was no getting around it. I had a good attitude when I left my house, but as usual, I returned with a rather somber disposition. What is up with humanity? People act so ugly towards each other. I just don’t understand it.Continue reading “November 16, 2020 – Head in the Sand”
November 15, 2020 – Dreams and Desires
Each day that I write, I never know where it’s going to take me. It can lead virtually anywhere. But that’s the beauty of it, I suppose. The possibilities are endless. Today I thought a lot about where this could potentially lead. I am enjoying writing more than any other creative outlet that I’ve pursued.Continue reading “November 15, 2020 – Dreams and Desires”
November 8, 2020 – Doomed from the start.
When I was growing up, there was one thing we weren’t allowed to say. It’s not a ‘swear word’, but it packs a pretty powerful punch. In my house, it was the equivalent of getting slapped across the face, punched in the gut and kneed in the groin (at the same time). “Shut up.” Ack!Continue reading “November 8, 2020 – Doomed from the start.”
November 5, 2020 – Time to release the Kraken.
Have you I ever told you about my oldest brother? I’m going to refer to him as ‘the Kraken’. ‘The Kraken’ is perplexing to me. In person, during the few times we’ve actually gotten together, he ‘seems’ so incredibly normal and funny and supportive. He makes me laugh and listens and offers advice and makesContinue reading “November 5, 2020 – Time to release the Kraken.”
October 15, 2020 – Love is never wasted.
Have you ever written something profound to someone and never heard back? That’s what I’m wrestling with today. Saw my ‘shrink’ this afternoon and shared with her how I had recently written something really intense, soul-baring and powerful to someone I love dearly. I wanted them to recognize how much they mean to me andContinue reading “October 15, 2020 – Love is never wasted.”
October 10, 2020 – Let’s do lunch sometime.
Are you one of those people that likes to say, “Let’s do lunch sometime” when you don’t know how else to exit a conversation? Well, unless you really mean it, I implore you, please don’t. There are a lot of people in the world (including me) that will take you at your word. And whenContinue reading “October 10, 2020 – Let’s do lunch sometime.”
October 4, 2020 – Bad eggs, every family has at least one.
Most families have a bad egg or two. And when I say ‘bad egg’, I’m not referring to the kind you might fry up and pair with a slice of bacon and possibly an english muffin. I’m talking about bad people. I know that sounds rather harsh but in this case, it’s true. These areContinue reading “October 4, 2020 – Bad eggs, every family has at least one.”
