Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none. – William Shakespeare

I read the title over and over again, though the practice is sometimes still hard.  Love all? When so many are hard to love or even seem unlovable, it is easier said than done to be sure.  However, ‘LOVE’ is truly what makes the world go round. Love is what causes individuals to come together…

Imagine Depression

Imagine if you will the space on the floor where you stand when you get up every morning. It seems sturdy, correct? Hard wooden floor or carpet atop sub floor that will be guaranteed to be there to catch you each time you need it.  Now imagine if it wasn’t there one day and you…

To Ask or Not to Ask

Did you know that asking for something is one of the hardest things to do? Think about it for a minute, is it easy for you to ask for something? Whether asking for a cup of coffee, a seat on the bus, or a ride to the store, when you ask something of someone you…

Be Kind… Don’t Be A Dick

I realized today that though I may feel anger and resentment toward someone for wrongs committed against my family, friends or self, I still do not want to see them suffer because I am not a dick. I would give the shirt off my back, shelter and food to ensure a certain level of comfort….

Heartbroken in Paradise

What is it like to be with someone that you truly love and want to commit to, but they do not want to commit to you? Pretty damn shitty. So many things that run through my brain on a daily basis.  On our 5 year anniversary, I got a kiss. The perfect day. 6-18-16, a…

Everyday you make history

We go through each day, buying coffee from the local barista, lunch at a favorite restaurant, and interact with the cashier at the supermarket grabbing those last minute dinner needs. Even if this isn’t exactly you, you DO interact with people during your day. Maybe at your office, checkout line, or while serving a subpoena….

Truth and Love

In any relationship, every personal decision we make automatically brings joint consequences, this is why making decisions together when married or living that way is important.  This would apply even to friendships, especially close ones.  As I adamantly believe that honestly is the best policy, tact is often an acquired skill many do not have…

Feelings…

Feelings have to be one of the most fragile of all the things.  So simple that they can be hurt by a look, single word, or an image, yet are so complicated in the way they heal.  For some, it may take a lifetime for hurt to heal, for the pain of the flame to…

Driving Force

What is the driving force that gets you out of bed in the morning, that motivates you to carry on? Is it family, job/career, image, or maybe all the above. If most of us were honest with ourselves, the inherent need to be wanted, loved, adored, and accepted by others is probably near the top…

Make it a Great Day!

Pre-dawn. The time of peace and solitude when the moon has gone to bed and the sun has yet to wake up. When the trees and plants are still asleep, moist with dew and creatures of all sizes are holding on to the last few moments of slumber.  Cool and calm, it is a perfect…

Questions of the heart

How do you know someone really loves you? How do you know that you really love someone?  How do you take out the feeling of not wanting to be alone and separate that from how you truly feel? How long do you need to be with someone to really know them? Can you ever? Is…

Rise and shine, just not at 2am!

So for the last week or so, my body has been up to its old antics, 2-3am rise and shine. What is that all about?  Well, I did a little research into the issue.  Most of which was not super helpful to me personally because I do not change well, however, may help some of…
