I have just had an "Ah ha!" moment. Many times when I find myself in an argument, I get frustrated, some times to the extreme, because I feel as if I'm not being understood, that I'm not able to get my point across. But perhaps that is not the case. What if, instead, I am the one with the misunderstanding? What if I am getting upset because I have inferred something that wasn't there? This is definitely food for thought and I will try to remember in the future to stop and think or ask for… Continue

Ok, it's going on 4 days since I made the decision to be proactive about my happiness. So far, the change has been dramatic, at least to me. I feel so much better. I'm enjoying my kids more, I'm not always wasting the precious moments with negative thoughts about the past or future. Am I completely fixed? Absolutely not. But the transformation in such a short time amazes me. It gives me so much hope for the future.
I am going on a little getaway this weekend, something my wonderful… Continue

So my daughter Luci is 8 and a half months and she is very vocal. She says dada and mama and a whole bunch of other sounds that sound like she is having a conversation and she lets you know when she is happy or sad or mad and you know it. So today she is being fussy (she has been fussy the last few days) and I feel a tooth just broken through the skin so no wonder she is fussy. Anyway, my brother starts singing to her and I say she likes the low register better than the high register so he… Continue

I did it. I didn't know what I was doing when I did it. But I have killed her. It wasn't intentional. I never wanted it to happen, but that doesn't change the fact that I am guilty. It was a slow painful death. And now everything has changed...
But maybe she isn't really dead. Maybe she is just lost. Maybe I can find her. Maybe I can nurse her back to health, make her stronger than before. Maybe I can bring back everything that is good. You deserve better. I will make things right.

How many times have I said it? This time will be different. This time I mean it. These things have always been said with the sincerest intentions but I have repeatedly failed to change. Why is this? It is fear. No amount of well intentioned words or promises will make it go away. Action is required. But what can I do? First, I need to recognize what I am afraid of. Then I need to face it. If you're afraid of heights, you have to go sky diving. The time for talking about things has come and… Continue

As I work on banishing negative thoughts from my mind, I have been trying out some strategies. I had a pretty good day yesterday, only slipped a little late in the day but was able to pull through with the help of my wonderful husband. And he didn't even know he did anything. He is so amazing... But I digress. This morning, I have found my mind trying to travel down the all too familiar tracks of obsessive thoughts, things that have already past and things that have not yet occurred. Which is… Continue

Do you ever feel like there's just not enough time in the day? For me, this is an everyday thing. It seems the day is over and I still have a never-ending list of things to accomplish. Wouldn't it be nice to tack additional minutes or even hours onto each day? I believe it is possible.
How much time do you spend on your phone everyday? How much of that time is actually productive or beneficial? All those minutes scanning our news feeds, watching viral videos, looking through endless… Continue

I could go on about anxiety and emotions and how they affect you and those around you but the truth is, I'm not in the mood. The only thing I want to do right now is sleep. Which is actually better than what I wanted to do only a couple of hours ago. And that is what I want to talk about. I need to get it out because I'm afraid to keep it in. Unfortunately, there is no one I can talk to about it so I hope I can find some relief here on Eye C U....
I have been having very strong… Continue

When you're going through hard times, it's easy to feel like it's the end of the world. But it is important to remember the good things in life, to pull yourself out of despair and wrap yourself in the warmth and comfort of your blessings.
Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.
Always remember to forget
The friends that…

I'd like to pose the question, when you share understanding that shows and prove to be true, is it necessary to say "I told you so"? I pose the question, in the context, of using the Big Head, and playing the Game of Life. Is saying the statement "I told you so", taking a step forward or backward? When you say " I told you so" you are basking the in glory, of being right. I am asking, that by enjoying that pleasure of sharing "I told you so", are you taking a step forward to that person… Continue

Addiction is the most destructive vice out there. It sneaks in in the beginning being fully under your control.
