Alone in a Coffee Shop

I'm surprised, geniunley shocked that I have alone time before work to write this morning. Having a car back has been bliss, and I've bought so many reading materials it's gonna take a while to get through them all - from 365 ways to raise your vibration, to the artists ways creativity cards & her [...]


Allowed to be Angry

In full swing I have been pissed at Kylie, and rather than possibly projecting my inner child onto her, I'm not allowing guilt to conflict with my ability to utilize my anger as a tool for boundary setting. I made it absolutely clear that if she's comfortable trashing the kitchen floor so everyone has to [...]

The Death of a Stalker

In truth, I can't feel that bad for her. Originally Aris tried to get me to feel bad for her as this poor transgendered woman who can't come out of the closet and he's trying to rescue her to garner my sympathy... Then a professor snapped me out of it when she saw I was [...]

Blending Experiences

Yesterday I did the Hecates ceremony and a tarot reading with a few simple questions with powerful results. Before the Hecates ceremony I caught myself in a religious state I hadn't experienced in a long time... But the emotion was strong and intense. Whenever I prayed to God as a Seventh-day Adventist Id always end [...]

A Day of Self Care

I don't know what it was yesterday but I felt weighed down, heavy, and my soul was just out of sync. I needed a vibrational lift, and set out for exactly that. I walked from my house to Lee initially to shop at misty meadows when Henry, one of my regulars at work, spotted me [...]

The Stillness in my Heart

You know what's amazing about self-help & healing/therapy? When you connect to the goodness within you, you strive to be a better person... In particular I strive to be a better mom. I change my reactions knowing full well that what I model becomes my child's internal voice. For an autistic child, how much more [...]

Empathy is Intense

The ability to heal and be whole is lived and learned through empathy. I see now that the root of my work is to develop an empathic inner voice. The dialogue has to change, the relationship has to change, but in order for this to have happened, my understanding of empathy had to become more [...]


I don't know why, but I think I finally can personally interpret what it means to hold or "honor" a particular experience or emotion (as a certain person likes to tell me); its to appreciate the experience on some level. For whatever reason I've never seen honoring something and appreciating them as synonymous or hand-in-hand [...]

Memes & Facebook Emotional Support Systems

This was on my codependent recovery page: While so many people were liking, loving, and saying "how true" to this post, I was both angry and offended. This was my response. "Probably because grief is a vessel we use to contain our losses, and when that vessel gets too full we cry, and until we've [...]

The Smallest Connection

To be human is to grieve, because if we grieve we are in touch with the swelling of emotions that make us so complex, the glue that permanently connects the puzzle pieces and fragments that make us human compared to the clinical diagnosis that seeks to pull us to pieces for fragmented labels of understanding.
