dear st. elmo #3

I keep writing and thinking and writing and remembering…all as a way to help me move on.  I need to keep reminding myself that you are not the one for me.  I need to take these thoughts and put them in writing so that I can see them and revisit them.  It’s not so much …

dear st. elmo #2

Will you finally deal with your feelings of being cheated on by your ex-fiance and the end of that relationship???  Seriously, it’s been like 11 or 12 years already.  This is a prime example of how you don’t work through issues of your previous relationship before embarking on the next.  You may think that it …

the american dream

Earlier this week at work, I attended a presentation that essentially highlighted the results of a poll regarding how those polled viewed The American Dream and the optimistic/pessimistic feelings toward their lives and situations now and in the future.  It also went on to show how the current economic situation has altered The American Dream. It was pretty …

taking a hiatus

I’ve been silent on here lately.  I have a million and one things that I could blog about, but I need to take a short break from blogging.  I’ve still been writing, just not publishing what is pouring out on paper.  I need to keep some things private and just for me. I will admit …

standing on my own

I was very fortunate enough to find this wonderful blog post by Jeannie, about being alone, over at The Awakened Life. Because of my single status for much of my life, I am very comfortable with being alone.  I don’t feel the overwhelming need to fill my days and nights with social activities that have me …

random thoughts

This was actually a post I started writing awhile ago…but never got around to posting it.  Ehh, now’s as good a time as ever…. Random things (positive things in blue; negative things in red; neutral things in gray; both good & bad in purple): –          Is the universe laughing its face off by sending me …

moving forward

We aren’t out of the woods yet.  The path is still a long one to get out.  But we are willing to go down that long winding path together. I have mixed emotions about what is happening with St. Elmo.  On one hand, I am really happy that he recognized and admitted to the things …

dear diary…

This is my 100th post.  I thought it fitting to dedicate it to the simple act of blogging. It is a little strange to be chronicling my life online.  I’ve kept written journals in the past.  I used to go through phases when I’d write in it every day.  But then one day I wouldn’t …
