When did I become timid?

FIERCE, STRONG-WILLED, INDEPENDENT, HEADSTRONG, OUTSPOKEN. All me. Or at least that was me. I’m not sure when things changed and I became….weak. At least it feels like weakness. When you’ve spent your whole life being one thing and you suddenly look in the mirror and you cannot recognize the person starting back, you start to […]

Afraid to Write

I have a journal I’m afraid to write in. What if I write on those creamy lined pages and they don’t? (Make me famous, that is.) What if I write the wrong words? What if it never happens? See, I am not one of those people who wants my words to simply exist in a […]

Getting to know me…….

Since we’re both new here (and I’m trying to figure out exactly what I’m doing here) I thought I should tell you a little bit about my favorite things. These are a few… Favorite place….my bed. Seriously. Second place….the beach (off season). Favorite food…chocolate. Favorite color…blue. Favorite thing to do…spend time with my family. Favorite […]

Out of the Box

Yeller. Impatient. Tense. Easily frustrated. This is the mom I see when I look at myself. And sadly, those are parts of me. But that is not all of me. Dare I say, it is not even most of me. Do you ever compare yourself to other moms? I know I do. I think that […]

Handful

“You’re a handful.” “Oh, I just had a small handful of chocolate chips.” “I added a handful of cheese.” It seems a handful varies according to what is being held. I’ve spent my whole life thinking I’m a handful, yet the chocolate I indulge in seems to be a much different handful that I think […]

Begin Again

This is where I am at. I’m laying it all on the table to let you know this is my beginning….again. I have this nagging voice in my head telling me this is not good enough. None of it is good enough. It’s not perfect enough, pretty enough, none of it is right. I’d like […]

I’m back

again. Yes, I am. And quite honestly, I don’t want to be. I don’t want to be here typing to the blogosphere….I want to be writing  type that will set on creamy white pages in crisp black ink. I want to be telling a story, any story. But I don’t know how to get there. […]
