“all i have are the choices i make”

I could write a book on fate...and for the last six years of my life I swore I would.  But that was then and, as they say, this is now.  All of the lessons learned and eye-opening experiences between then and now have left me with the desire to (instead) write my little novel about choices.  Because if … Continue reading “all i have are the choices i make”

sometimes you just know

This may be the shortest post I've ever written, but I really cannot stay to chat tonight.  Things have busy, but what else is new?  Anyways, today/tonight i got to spend some time with my friend, Michelle, and the adorable little Max (her son) and I feel like I cannot go to bed tonight without … Continue reading sometimes you just know

all i have are the choices i make.

Darlene, one of the loves of my life, always knows the right things to say, even if I don't know the right question to ask.  On Thursday afternoon she knew the right quote to share: Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it … Continue reading all i have are the choices i make.

i don’t believe in fate (anymore). i believe in coincidence, choice, and possibilty.

Chuck: Two people that are meant to be together will eventually find their way back. Blair: Do you really think that? Chuck: I do. Blair: So do I. I found myself watching the final Chuck-Blair scene of Gossip Girl’s The Witches of Brunswick episode last night and rolling my eyes as the on-and-off-again couple recited the lines … Continue reading i don’t believe in fate (anymore). i believe in coincidence, choice, and possibilty.

don’t you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark, twisted games?

I've sat on this thought for a long time.  Probably at least 6 years, if not more.  But I'm not sure if I have ever voiced it out loud (to myself) or to anyone else.  Instead it's an idea that has rolled around in my mind time-and-time-again, but I never knew how best to put those thoughts … Continue reading don’t you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark, twisted games?

Maybe our mistakes make our fate...without them what would change our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, people come into your life and they go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love are always in … Continue reading seren-dipity-doo-dah

i’m wonderstruck. i’ll spend forever wondering if you know, i was enchanted to meet you.

With my green OU traveler's mug next to me, I sit here ready to divulge into my mind: the past, present, future, and my imagination.  Since the never-ending Chicago Windstorm of 2010 knocked out my Internet last night, preventing me from blogging therapy, I yearn to have that happen now.  And 15 minute work break begins now... ...as I hit PLAY … Continue reading i’m wonderstruck. i’ll spend forever wondering if you know, i was enchanted to meet you.

it’s not always rainbows and butterflies

Another whirlwind week for this girl.  Again I find myself in disbelief that it is Friday night.  What even happened this week?  Being sick is what threw a curveball into my typical routine, and oh yeah, my friend Laura was in town for 1.5 days.  Now it's all coming back to me... I sit here … Continue reading it’s not always rainbows and butterflies

if i follow my heart, where will it lead me?

It took me awhile to fall asleep last night, and as Darlene and I say, "Those damn squirrels and bats were running around in my head."  So many things and nothing at all contributed to the many ideas that ran through my mind, keeping me from getting the much-needed rest for a back-to-work MOAN-Day.  Somehow … Continue reading if i follow my heart, where will it lead me?

they say that home is where the heart is. i guess i haven’t found my home.

I'm going to take a break from the June series to address some of the things that have been going on with me this week.  I'm sure you don't mind not reading about my past recollections; however, I can promise you that there will be a few more posts in the coming days/weeks. Before I … Continue reading they say that home is where the heart is. i guess i haven’t found my home.
