Size matters.

“You must learn one thing.  The world was made to be free in.  Give up on all other worlds except the one to which you belong.   Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you. ”  … Continue reading

Somewhere in the middle.

“Marco?”  Silence. “Marco??” Dead air. “Marco!”  Stillness.  Nope, no “Polo” to my “Marco.” It’s a never-ending game I play to locate the truth.  Where is the truth and more importantly, why is my truth always in hiding? I don’t know where I am right now.  As everyone walks their own path, I’m lost somewhere, straggling … Continue reading

I’m having a relationship with Chanel.

Isn’t she lovely?  Isn’t she wonderful?  OK, I know I’m channeling Stevie Wonder, but follow me here.  Yes, ‘it’ is actually a ‘she’ and yes, I’ve named this bag.  In fact, I’ve dreamed, obsessed and drooled over this perfectly pink, classic Chanel flap bag.  Those two shiny, interlocking Cs tease me in my dreams.  The … Continue reading

A round peg.

Today is my 25th birthday.  While I have to admit, I’ve been depressed thinking about hitting that dreaded quarter-century mark, today I am simply happy.  My 24th year was marked by unexpected changes. Tons of doors closed during the year, but even more opened, allowing me to run down a new, beautiful path.  My heart is filled with … Continue reading

Flying by the seat of my hot pants.

Some say the beautiful stages of life occur in a circle.  The cracked tiles of heartbreak and the renewed polished mile markers of growth and improvement all mold together to form a comprehensive, circular pattern of life’s fabric. On Friday, I will be 25, and while I feel blessed to have reached this mile marker … Continue reading

“You musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.”

Our life experiences shape our personal beliefs and convictions.  This blog has my name on it for a reason: because it is a forum for my opinions and thoughts.  I choose to share these sometimes very personal thoughts with the world in hopes that maybe I can reach someone who is facing a similar struggle … Continue reading

The possibilities of Wonderland.

“So many roads. So many detours. So many choices. So many mistakes.” — Sex and the City I started this blog on Christmas day 2010.  A little over one year ago, I was struggling.  I was searching like a mad woman for answers that could never be uncovered by simply picking up a rock or … Continue reading

“I wish they would all just disappear.”

I’ve been a Christmas crank lately.  My bah-humbug, Grinch-ly attitude is a huge disappointment considering how much I love the Christmas season.  I live for this season and the beautiful magic of it all.  The food, the decorations, the spirit, the wonderful company – it all usually leaves me feeling full-hearted and so grateful.  But … Continue reading

An open letter.

I don’t know how to say goodbye to you.  I think guilt has kept you here with me.  I feel responsible for leading you into a great love followed by an even greater pain.  I guess I’ve figured that holding onto you like a security blanket will somehow keep you with me always and will … Continue reading
