Let Them Walk

I stumbled across one of the most powerful videos I have ever seen last night.  The wealth of knowledge, entertainment and inspiration available on Youtube just boggles my mind.  What a luxury to live in these technological times! This is the video I saw last night - I watched it over and over: Let Them Walk, … Continue reading Let Them Walk

“You Were Really Bitter Last Summer”

Why yes.  Yes, I was.  And guess what?  Whenever I talk about it a lot, I'm still bitter.  I can still work up those same feelings of righteous indignation.  I rarely do but they're still buried in there somewhere. Quite frankly, I don't care who knows it.  What's wrong with being bitter occasionally?  What's wrong … Continue reading “You Were Really Bitter Last Summer”

Milestones

May 25, 2017: The day any chance for success (that my marriage to Walkaway Bob had) died. As soon as I woke up today and realized it's May 25, 2018, that fateful day a year ago has been on my mind.  Not because I would like to go back to that day and do anything … Continue reading Milestones

The Sun Doesn’t Shine on the Same Horse’s Back All the Time

One of the basic truths of life is that everything is temporary.  Even physical life itself.  So it stands to reason that every situation or circumstance is also always temporary. One year ago today, I confronted Walkaway Bob about his online dating site profile which I had found a few days before.  And such was … Continue reading The Sun Doesn’t Shine on the Same Horse’s Back All the Time

Judicious Silence Speaks Volumes

I have been accused of: Disappearing Withdrawing Being Cold Being Cruel Shutting Others Out Etc., etc., etc. I know, right?  Can you imagine anyone accusing me of these things?  😉 Now it is true that, on occasion, I have done/been each of those.  More recently though, these are side effects, if you will, of me practicing … Continue reading Judicious Silence Speaks Volumes

Stop Asking Why

  Just stop.  Stop asking yourself "Why? Why did this happen to me?".  Just stop. NOW. Many of my clients keep asking these questions.  I have never dwelled on these Why questions but I understand where they come from.  Human beings need to be able to understand why things happen in their lives for one … Continue reading Stop Asking Why

Plan a Funeral

This past Sunday night, I decided to have a funeral.  A full blown, burn the body, funeral.  Someone said something to me last week that made me realize that, even though I've come so far in these last many months, there is still some letting go for me to do. It feels like scraping the … Continue reading Plan a Funeral

A Restraining Order is Just a Piece of Paper

Don't get me wrong - I love Restraining Orders.  They work wonders with the average, garden variety bully.  What they won't do is protect you or your family from a rageaholic, or anyone who isn't concerned about breaking the law. A Restraining Order can also be called an Order of Protection.  In most states, there … Continue reading A Restraining Order is Just a Piece of Paper

What Exactly is Forgiveness?

I'm not sure I really know what forgiveness is.  The word itself is so convoluted.  I like clean, succinct words. I understand choosing to let go.  I understand moving forward.  I understand dropping your "bags" at the baggage claim and flying away.  Shoot, I even once visualized leaving some suitcases on the side of I-85 … Continue reading What Exactly is Forgiveness?
