In observance of mental health day

It’s interesting, isn’t it?  How we go around masquerading ourselves from those around us.  Covering up and hiding how we are truly feeling.  Pulling the reality of what we believe into ourselves and shielding the world from us.  Almost like they couldn’t handle or accept us and all that we entail.   That in turn, […]

For my children

For my children:   I hope you challenge yourself beyond your safe zones. I hope you stretch enough to be uncomfortable. I hope you believe in dreams no one understands.   I hope you never give up on yourself – even if you feel those around you have. I hope you feel safe enough to […]

Restless nights

In the past – before I know what I know now – I would wake up in the middle of the night with my head full of worries of what was going to happen.   I would lie in bed wondering what the outcome was going to be.  For hours on end. I would worry […]
