Okay, so I'm not there yet. And probably won't be for quite some time. Eventually, though, I intend to declare myself victorious in this situation and in life overall.

I have a lot of shit to figure out first, though.

I recognize now, more than I did before, that being i...

My therapist is a goddess. She has the perfect personality for me. She empathizes, sympathizes, and relates to me exactly as a woman and therapist should. I'm so grateful to have found her.

She also is exquisitely perfect at calling me on my shit.

I want so desperately t...

Trust is a really hard thing. Lots of people have a difficult time doing it completely. I don't. If anything, I trust too easily and too much. And this trait has continued to bite me in the ass for most of my life.

It's not that I trust others without question. I can ea...

I drove two hours yesterday to pick up my son. The playlist blasting through the speakers had a good mixture of rock, pop, hip-hop, and selections from movie soundtracks I love. But then this song came on.

I was a little bit behind there for a minute, but I'm back on track now. Got the O, the P, and the Q posted, and today is R.

Yeah, yeah, you're supposed to do those things and not expect anything in return if you're really a good and selfles...

Persistence is something I've gotten quite good at. I've managed to remain in a somewhat stressful job for a decade (with a little time off here and there). I have continued to raise my son with dignity and respect, though it's definitely been a challenge. And I contin...

Ogliddidoggliddidog is the sound cartoon characters make to return to normal when they shake their heads after getting screwed up from a fall or something.

That's a little how I've felt for the last several months. Every time some new drama enfolds, a bucket of stone co...

I am obsessed with everything Viking. I binge watched the show on the History Channel. I've recorded and watched every documentary I can about the history and culture. I have added pictures and articles to my "wish" board so that one day I can travel to the many museum...

Whenever my son used to leave for a couple of days to visit with his grandparents, I admit that I was excited. It was usually a time I could catch a break to get a handle on the housework or write or finish laundry. I was never lonesome without him and his father thund...
