With Change Comes Happiness

Another birthday come and gone, and this one was one I will remember.  This past year has had it’s ups and downs, but it has been, by far, the best one I’ve had in ages.  I celebrated my birthday three times this year.  The first was a family afair, which took place on Thanksgiving day…

Heart’s Secret Desire

  A secret love has grown with time; Yet it will never take a breath. I keep it in this heart of mine; Forever till my death. For reasons only known to me; Friendship is our fate. If only love was meant to be; For you my heart would wait. We’d never meet the needs…

Short and Sweet

What I thought was nothing has turned into something very special.  I’ve discovered a man I completely misunderstood.  We parted because we couldn’t find each other, but the distance gave us time to figure it out.  The thought of losing one another was what we needed to communicate.  He isn’t at all what I had…

A Treasured Gift

One must be kind to a gentle heart; For it feels more than it’s counterpart. Nothing compares to it’s undying love; The sweetest kiss; pure as a dove. So please beware and understand; It can shatter when placed in careless hands. And if the broken heart never mends; The love it shared comes to an…

Good-Bye Is Never Easy

Letting go has always been hard for me.  I usually know for some time that it’s time to move on, yet I hold on waiting to see if I’m wrong.  I don’t know why I haven’t learned to listen to my gutt.  It’s always the same; in the end, I wonder why I didn’t do…

My Life Transformed

Sadly, I have neglected my blog over the past couple of months with only random posts from time to time.  I started this blog over a year ago, and since that time, I’ve created some positive change in my life.  Slowly, I’ve crawled my way out of a very stagnant time in my life, and…

An Unexpected Turn Of Events

When it comes to matters of the heart, there are no rules.  However, as we age, starting new relationships become more and more difficult. We come with baggage; we’ve been hurt, and we are scared of letting ourselves love again.   To be perfectly honest, I didn’t think I’d ever love again after leaving a…

Ain’t Nothing Gonna Break Me

A very wise man told me today that the most important thing we keep during heartbreak is a sense of self.  I couldn’t agree more.  With everything that has happened over the past four days, I can hold my head high and say I valued myself and my worth. As mentioned in my last two…

Like a Record Baby

There has been very little writing happening from me lately, and not from a lack of trying.  Daily, I sit staring at the blank screen willing words to appear.  Some days, I write a couple of paragraphs, but hate what I’ve written and trash the post.  Other days, the blank screen stares back at me…

Let Me Tell You A Story…

When I was a little girl, I dreamt of falling in love.  The fairytale kind filled with romance and butterflies.  At the age of 21, I was married to a nice man, but not the right man.  After the marriage ended, I had a string of terrible relationships that left me hurt and guarded.  My…

M.I.A.

My blog has had to take a back seat these past few weeks.  Work and my personal life have been busier than usual, which I’m happy about.  Still, I miss my writing time.  When I take breaks from posting, I end up with a bad case of writer’s block.  I don’t even have time to…

Life’s Highway

With the smell of love in the air, my world has shifted once again, and I’m struggling to keep myself on stable ground. First of all “love” is an over-statement.  I’ve spent two weekends with a man who, so far, seems decent.  He drives truck Mon – Fri, so we hang out on weekends only….
