Fear and Finances: Change vs. Shifts

September 7, 2012

69

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 […]

Lighting up the Sky

“Even After All this time The Sun never says to the Earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens With a love like that, It lights the whole sky.” A quote by the Sufi poet, Hafiz, from a friend (many thanks for this day opener). The day began with a friend and a text message. Yesterday […]

Commitment

August 13, 2012

I need to make a solid commitment to and at this blog. Just like I bring the literature in one of my women’s meetings each week, it’s important that I begin updating this space regularly. Not simply because it is good to regularly update a regularly updated blog, but because I know this kind of […]

“Perfection Adjacent”

Lawd. Have. Mercy. It’s over. Thank you Margieville, for the incredible and succinct description of my statistically insignificant completion. I don’t know if I’ve squeaked by with a B- (you brilliant thing you!) but I have most likely passed. And right now, that is all that matters. Never before have I  let those words escape […]

And Now, for Some Humanity

After the last post, the post about the woman that can do everything, I quickly realized that you are all correct and it is not necessary to do everything. While I may have pretended to be wise, a sage of wordpress and knower of my own limitations, surely my humanity and my super addicty ways […]

Dealing with Disappointment

April 28, 2011

About two weeks ago, I was sitting in Dr. Reef’s office talking about life. At one point in our short, thirty minute conversation, he said, “I’m really curious as to when something will go wrong for you. Because everything seems to go right.” Oh ho ho Dr. Reef, that statement assumes I believe things can […]

Frank Sinatra singing gently over the roar of Starbuck’s customers, horns, laughing, the occasional burst of the steamer in a metal milk container. A gentleman next to me precariously balancing his laptop on his lap. Plugging in the power cord, sipping his coffee and the music shifts to something a bit more uptempo. Piaget’s stages […]

Marty McFly and the Time Machine

April 4, 2011

34

So many times in life, I’ve wished I could go back and change something I said or did. I tell myself, like any good, trying to move forward type person, that “I will neither regret nor wish to change the past,” but truth be told, everyone has a day or eight they’d love to go […]

“I’m Riding this Emotionless Train As Far As It Will Go.”

February 9, 2011

Jimmy, a very dear reader, left a comment that struck me as gold. Not the “life is a series of punches to the face” comment, although it certainly can be, but the above title, “I’m riding this emotionless train as far as it will go.” This statement struck me because I rode this train for […]
