Making it count.

My friends never cease to surprise me.  Somehow, in some amazing way, they are always there when I’m in need of a really good, nurturing, soothe-your-soul girl talk.  Last night was no exception.  Into the early hours of the morning, I spent time spilling my heart to a friend who I’ve been missing since she … Continue reading

Crazy little thing…

Our story was special.  I didn’t trust it. Our love was surprising.  I didn’t understand it. You swept me away.  I didn’t trust you. A chapter ended.  I couldn’t understand it. A new chapter began.  How do I trust it? Love is a crazy entity and lately I’ve been realizing the depth of its insanity.  … Continue reading

To whom it may concern.

I look for inspiration everywhere and today it came from a close friend.  If you’ve read my past few entries, it’s pretty clear that I’m in desperate need of a little hope or sunshine to spread some light on a dark situation.  Today, my friend reminded me that such hope comes from within. Each time … Continue reading

Like Shattered Glass.

We all experience the déjà vu of recurring dreams… but what about the horror of recurring nightmares? For the last few years, I have struggled to wake up.  Welcome to my recurring nightmare.  In this show of horrors, I’m screaming, shouting at the top of my sore lungs, but nothing comes out.  I fight to … Continue reading

Anyway

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and … Continue reading

“This is how the story went I met someone by accident who blew me away blew me away And It was in the darkest of my days When you took my sorrow and you took my pain And buried them away, you buried them away I wish I could lay down beside you When the … Continue reading

Blow the candles out…

Two years ago, I blew the candles out… Two years later, I was walking behind him… nearly running, in fact.  And this is how it was: always lagging behind, always trying to follow his big steps, only my legs couldn’t reach and there I was, left behind.  We were young.  We didn’t know what we … Continue reading

Inside the glass jar.

I’ve always loved fireflies.  The glitter of their sparkle, the freedom of their flight, fireflies amazed me.  As a child, my sister and I would catch them in glass jars to watch their beautiful bulbs glow in the silky darkness.  Now, at 24, however, I commiserate with the light bulbs of the night.  They were … Continue reading

I’m not who I used to be.

I know it’s pretty soon to be contemplating New Year’s and the ill-fated ditch-the-Ben-and-Jerry’s-for-a-rice-cake resolutions (come on, do any of us really make it past January 2 anyway?) that come with the dropping of the ball, but change has been on my mind as of late.  Maybe it’s the swirling smells and colorful palette of … Continue reading

Free falling.

Lately I’ve been tired.  My eyes don’t just have bags under them; they have the entire line of the 2011 Louis Vuitton resort luggage collection stacked beneath them.  I’ve been catching up on sleep and trying to incorporate healthier foods into my daily diet, so why I am so tired, you ask? I think too … Continue reading
