Two weeks ago, I was the luckiest woman on earth, enjoying a writer’s retreat with some of my very best writer buds. I had been anticipating the trip for nearly two months with more glee than a kid waiting for Santa. In the back of my mind, I was a smidge worried that...

Dear Heart,

I need to talk to you. You’re really closed up tight right now and it’s pretty important that you open back up. And fast. If you don’t, things will get really bad. I know you already think that things are really bad, but Goddess keeps pointing out that they...

I have been on a writer's retreat for the last two days and today begins the third and final one for making the magic happen. I can't get over how many words and ideas I've managed to get on paper since I got here. I'm so grateful. It makes the money spent so well wort...

It's taken far too long to my way of thinking, but at long last, the magic is returning.

Words are making their way onto the page and I'm not just automatically deleting them. I'm no longer X'ing out of Word and clicking "do not save." No more ripping sheets of paper fr...

Just another week and another session with my Goddess therapist. I went in thinking I was in a good place, amused instead of depressed by all the occurrences of the previous week and ended up being rescued from myself, once again.

     I realize now, I could have had a second child. The dreams I have of being pregnant are far too frequent and repetitive. The emptiness I feel when I wake up from those dreams is palpable. I can still feel the baby inside, kicking and moving, yearning to be born an...

Yes, I'm a bit tardy in posting this final blog for my "unofficial" challenge. Ooooops.

Z is for zoom. I am zooming pretty damn fast into a future I am more than uncertain about. I am excited, too. What kinds of things are waiting for me out there? Will adventure find m...

I am anxious for the future so I can stop obsessing over the past. Neither is a good way to exist at this point. I can't run away from my past and I can't rush the present or else I might miss something vital. I've always had difficulties existing in the now. If I'm no...

Honestly, I don't know what's so special about Xanax. My doctor gave me a prescription in November because I was freaking out and anxiety ridden, yet it didn't do all that much for me except make me sleepy. Now I just keep the rest of the little white oval-shaped pills...

I'm creating a wish board. Right now, it's filled with all kinds of material things that probably don't matter much in the scheme of things, but it's normal and natural to fantasize about that dream house or vacation or car. I pray my son will go to college and graduat...
