BADASSES unite

I’m a bad-ass and you are too.  The latest self discovery comes from reading Jen Sincero’s You Are A Bad-ass. Also my muses as an adult babysitter aka Substitute teacher. 1. So I’ve always been pissed when I get in trouble for things I didn’t say because I’m the loudest. Well either I’m gonna have…

Walking through a dark tunnel…

“Walking through a dark narrow tunnel” With no-one else. With no flashlight Because your friend bails No direction in sight Trying to lift your sails your tears soak the sails; so no flight Every moment you try to bail But there is no end in sight The dark tunnel swallows you whole, it’s like a…

Cinderella effect

I was talking to a radio mentor,  Lori when I asked why women tend to not like other women with talent. She said it’s  the “Cinderella effect”. It was an a-ha moment!  She went on to say we grow up thinking only one woman can get the glass slipper and there’s only one prince!  When…

If kids were adults we’d live happier…

So as I play teacher as a temporary sub I’ve learned a few things from kids. A. They get upset but get over it quickly,  b. They say they’re sorry. C. They give love I was at recess duty when two 7 year old girls said a boy was being mean to them on the…

Let’s hope I’m having a Mandy Moore moment…

I wondered what happened to Mandy Moore. I knew she had married then gotten divorcetd. However,  the last I remember she was in “A Walk to Remember” which I loved. I also loved her pop hit “I Wanna Be with You” I own the CD. Then I heard about this new tear jearker “This is…

Gratitude brings multitude

I really believe in the power of being grateful. Every time I sit and write a list of gratitude,  I feel happy and productive. Being grateful makes me want to do more in my life. I also believe you have to remind your brain to focus on the good. Your brain is like a manual…

My addiction is a little shocking.

So I’ve learned I’m addicted to people. What!? Yep. It’s true. My therapist pointed it out to me and I was shocked. How could I be addicted to a person?  Then like every new idea I let it soak in. Then I realized it may be true! I remember in college I had to read…

The Pretenders were a group not me…

(What it’s like when people look over your shoulder for someone better to talk with. ) I refuse to pretend to be perfect. Perfection doesn’t go hand in hand with being human. It’s never possible. I attended a party recently and tried to be soft spoken and not be well, me. Yep I’m loud,a klutz(I…

How do you forgive?

My brother is on this list. That picture is a sum of how he’s treated me my whole life. My close friend said people can’t grasp how badly he treats me until you witness us together for 15 minutes. I vividly remember sitting in my room at 13 and him telling me “you just have…

Repeat: I won’t compare myself to others!

(I worked 3 jobs to complete my degree at BSU while having no parents,  paying my own bills and maintaining a 3.2 GPA then the photo above happened. It seems about right, ha 🤗) It’s like comparing apples to oranges. God said “carry your own load” Do we know what each person carries?  No. So…

What if we saw snow like kids do….

(Today I hope my Dad, C. Reuben is my angel in heaven, as it’s his birthday) I woke up to see several inches of fluffy but packed snow on my car LuLu. It took maybe 2 min to take a broom and get it off but the whole time I cursed mama nature. Then I…
