5 Years

April 29, 2014

26

Today marks the five year anniversary of my very first post on BecomingJennie. It’s hard to believe that five years have passed. It seems it’s just as difficult to know where to end as it was to know how to begin. I suppose, like anything, I simply should start at the beginning.   April 6th, […]

Winding Down

December 28, 2012

111

As we move forward in life and these years wind down, I find myself – perhaps typically – nostalgic and pensive about the present, past and future. The past year has been a roller coaster of life. Births and deaths, triumphs and well… non-triumphs. And all through it I am grateful to have remained sober. […]

Fear and Finances: Change vs. Shifts

September 7, 2012

70

I’m currently in the middle of a new 4th step and am once again bewildered by the fears that have come up. The first time around, I wrote them out and many of them were so irrational that I had to let them go. Of course, many of those irrational fears still loom above my […]

Medical Limitations? Being Human

September 7, 2011

37

School has started, and not surprisingly, I’ve overextended myself. I hate saying it, I especially hate writing it, because it is a glaring reminder of that which I cannot change, my humanity and inability to do everything I want to do, perfectly, but it is a reminder nonetheless of all I am working toward, and […]

Springing into Spring

April 1, 2011

25

Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day… I have a beautiful feeling, that this whole “spring is here” thing may not last. In any case, whether it is just these few days of summer and hot pavement beneath bare feet and open screen doors, I am enjoying them for what they are. […]
