New Year New Vision!

Reflecting on my blog posts from last year at this time…I ask myself did I achieve my goals for 2014.  I can say I honestly did. I remain optimistic on life, pushing forward in all my aspirations.  I approach all new situations with an open mind and heart. Continue reading New Year New Vision!

Can’t Waste My Breath!

I can’t waste my breath on recurring themes in my life hoping for a different outcome.

My words fall on death ears…..first it is polite favors, turns to negotiations, then a debate to a full blown disagreement…. Anger and frustration rises.

Certain ways of people will never change. I can scream through the roof….but it is transparent.

That favor of being more accommodating, taking initiative, understanding my needs, my children…… you will never fully comprehend.

The transparency is apparent from the last time my request ended with the same outcome.

Yet you wonder why I was in search for a way out. Why I could not deal with your lack of regard of “ME” or “US” or “THEM”.

Vain, selfish ways do not deserve unconditional love. And as you see it dissipated….you stand alone.

I stand alone, with a weight off my shoulder. There are challenges and unknowns….but a gain of a full appreciation of ME!

I can’t waste my breath any longer!

Why Separation Is So Painful!

In every friendship hearts grow and entwine themselves together, so that the two hearts seem to make only one heart with only a common thought. That is why separation is so painful; it is not so much two hearts separating, but one being torn asunder.”
― Fulton J. Sheen

Family is Family!

“There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”

Rules Are Meant To Be Broken!

“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
