It Only Matters As Much As You Let It

Fooled be not-money will never learn the lessons for you. It is up to YOU to learn them. How much you learn depends on your effort and determination. The difference maker is tenacity and passion and desire and consistency, not money.

You are in Charge 

Fighting for the needs of my children while battling depression and anxiety was the hardest thing I have ever done. These four years were a roller coaster of emotions without any sense of stability or predictability at all.

The Sun Sets Without Magic Tonight

Losing control is not a luxury I can afford. Yelling and showing emotion only overloads his sensory system even more, making things worse. So, I do what the behavioral therapists have taught me to do, I stay calm, give as little attention as possible and stick to my guns. It sucks.

It’s Not You. Really! It’s Me…

I've been in the process of a nasty break-up with my old self. I have spent most of my life existing somewhere between sad and angry. Don't get me wrong, I have been happy too. But my disposition has always been more of a "resting bitch face" if you know what I mean. Like I… Continue reading It’s Not You. Really! It’s Me…
