I’ve noticed that I’ve become a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas and holiday cheer. All of a sudden Christmas music is annoying, office Christmas parties are a drag and if you offer me a glass of Egg Nog, I’m going to throw up. When I think of the holidays, I immediately begin to feel…Read More

Have I been a loner all along?
Why does being a loner feel so good? Am I going through a phase in life? Dining alone and watching people soothes me. Am I the only one who enjoys dining alone? Is this depressive? I’m not sad. Maybe I’m just tired of wearing a mask around people 24/7. Is this truly introversion or is the devil trying to isolate me? Enjoying a quiet evening alone with my thoughts in a bathtub full of bubbles with wine in hand is goals, right? Having circles of friends and loved ones that I adore, but not wanting to be bothered. Is that healthy? In a world where everything is so loud, peace and quiet is welcomed. My son is a lot like me. Am I affecting him negatively? I was sheltered as a kid. Would I have been this way if I wasn’t sheltered? Are you born a loner? Should I work on being a better person? Am I now embracing a part of me that I thought was weird?
What I do know is (as I sit smiling alone at a table in Panera Bread)…
I’m happy at this moment in time.
I feel good…

Recently, my coworker sparked a major debate in my office. He asked the ladies, what our thoughts were regarding women offering to pay on dates. He felt that if the guy is dating a woman for a certain period of time, that she, at some point, should offer to pay for dinner or offer to…Read More
Live Like No One Else, So That You Can Live Like No One Else -Dave Ramsey It has taken me 37 years to finally be open and honest with myself when it comes to my finances. I don’t think I have ever known how to effectively handle my money, part of that is because I was…Read More
Everyone has a Bucket List of all of these amazing things they want to do. That’s all fine and well, but I often think of the things I hope to never do. How about an Anti Bucket List. The complete opposite of a Bucket List. Here are the things I hope to NEVER do before I die…Read More
Because my Birthday is all about ME, right? Most that know me, know that my birthday is a HUGE deal. I look forward to turning another year older every year and celebrating ME (so much so, I installed a countdown to my birthday timer on my homepage, but I’m not that pressed though…LOL). Every year…Read More
Anxiety is a feeling of nervousness, unease, or worry that typically occurs in the absence of an imminent threat. It differs from fear, which is the body’s natural response to immediate danger. Ive suffered with a mild anxiety disorder since I was a teenager, but it didn’t really affect me as much until about 6…Read More
