Black and white Mood

I am in a black and white mood. It makes life simple and with all the struggles I go through, losing some color is good sometimes. I like to take black and white x mas photos too,,dont kill me. Recently been simplifying my home and goodwill pile is getting huge. I have to many photos,frames, misc items and trinkets around my home. I want it simple and after a few hours the other day it looks so much better. I just wanted to take a few moments and share some photos with you and hope as we go into this holiday season that life is simple for you. Remember you can say no! and dont feel guilty when you do!!



Life, connection and Sharing

Some days you feel like you have nothing to give. Not that you cant go on, because you can, you just feel like anything worth contributing has left your being. Then we are reconnected and share. We meet new people who listen to us and learn. We might not have cured cancer, but we have been there and done it and can share the bumps with others. Life has a way of kicking you in the teeth. We have all had those days, then there are days that remind us that WE are the ones keeping ourselves down. We are the ones who think we have nothing to give, but really we have tons.

People have different journeys in life. We aren't all going to the same place at the same time. Just imagine the traffic jam that would cause. We set our feet one in front of the other and before you know it, we have made a journey. Today with sharing my writing with others I connected. I was not judged. Tomorrow I do it again with a writing group I belong to. We share, we connect, we journey. Sharing a piece of yours…

a new poem

Wow has it been almost a month since I wrote in this sacred space? Life has gotten away from me and I feel like im slipping farther and farther behind. I am still looking for work,but currently going to school fulltime. I have joined some groups and I am working on thinking more globally and not so internally.

I also have been learning learning learning. I always feel like im so behind everyone else when they speak in classes. I dont feel smart, im not a young 18 year old student (though thank the lord for that one) I realized I am not what "I" thought I should be..till today!! We were discussing something in one of my classes and I answered brilliantly and I thought BAM! finally my brain has kicked in. The teacher even commented on it and said I said it brilliantly. I answered with info from three previous classes and thought wow I did learn something. I am my own worst critic. I am super hard on myself and I feel like I have to work three times as hard as eve…
