Making Her Happy
He could do nothing to please her. Whatever he said, whatever he did, it just wasn’t good enough. She always wanted more. Always wanting better. He ran everything through his mind over and over about what he could be doing wrong. What did he need to do to make it right? How could he get her to be happy and satisfied with him? What did he need to do? He beat himself up over what a mess-up he was. He couldn’t seem to do anything right. What was his problem? As he watched her come into the room, she was complaining of her friend. The stupid guy her friend was…
Leave the Shadows
She turned quickly to see a translucent shadow behind her. It didn’t move in any direction but rather floated in the same space. It had no definition. There was no face or body to it. It was nothing. But it was everything. What was it? What did it want? Why was it behind her? She turned away to run forward into the light of the day. She wanted to leave this dark shadow behind and the fear and negativity it was trying to attach to her. She felt the urgency to get away and free herself from this darkness behind her. Looming. Casting fragments of dread. She turned toward the…
Minimalist or Knickknacks ~ My Opinion
Fads come and go. Decorating is one of them. People pushing their thoughts on design is at a high. The feedback can be brutal. I have seen posts on Facebook pages of people asking for suggestions on a picture and someone will blast them on the entire room. Change your paint, put in new floors, you need new furniture, etc. Some can be relentless. Who would think that decorating your home could lead to name calling, belittling comments, and humiliation? It’s unbelievable how people feel the need to rip others apart instead of give compassionate criticism and build someone up. It’s so easy to tear others down. I understand people…
Lighten Your Load ~ My Opinion
Was last year a difficult one? Were you out of sorts? Were you feeling suffocated or trapped? Do you just want to feel more freedom this year? Were you burned out and lacking energy? Take a look at your surroundings. Could that be your problem? If you want this year to be better than last, you might just need to lighten your load. A good way to do this is to start cleaning up your space! What? That sounds so stupid! So, you think I will have a better year if I clean up my space? Absolutely! When our space isn’t well, we can not be well. Having clutter, piles,…
New Year, New Delete ~ My Opinion
Every year you see the phrase, ‘New year, new me’! With social media it is now common to see, ‘New year, time to clean up friends list’! Then BOOM…. delete, delete, delete. Back in the day we had real friends. We hung out with them. We had fights, made up, and life went on. Or we had fights, the friendship ended and our hearts broke because we had a human physical connection that was now gone. Today, we hit UNFRIEND, move on to the next post and no tears shed. We are human heartless robots. I have been unfriended over the years by a few people that I thought were…
No Resolutions ~ My Opinion
The New Year is right around the corner! People will be celebrating, welcoming in the new year and making the annual resolutions. New year, new you! Building up the anticipation of conquering the resolutions and not crashing after week three. It’s all very exciting! It’s all very exiting until you miss the gym two days in a row and you call it quits. Why did you think this year would be any different? What made you think that you would stick to the resolutions now when you failed the last ten years? Stupid resolutions anyway! You are not a quitter. You are not a failure. You are a warrior! But…
Disney and Life – My Opinion
Recently, my husband put the Disney Plus streaming on our television. I have always loved Cinderella. It is my favorite Disney movie that involves a princess and romantic love story. I have the original book from when I was a kid and it remains my favorite today. I will say Beauty and the Beast is a very close second. Anyway, I went on a little binge and watched the movies from the vault. I really did not realize how old these movies are. They remain in many hearts and are timeless classics. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs started the princess series in 1937. Then Pinocchio and many…
Unity is a Choice…….
We were born with no choices. We weren’t able to choose to be American, African, Asian, or any other nationality. We didn’t have the choice of hair, eye, or skin color. We couldn’t decide what sex we would be. We were just born how we were with what was given to us. As we grow, we get choices. We decide what we like and don’t like. We choose how we live our lives. We choose to attend school and be educated. We choose what job we will do for a living. We choose where we will live. Of course, life alters plans and we do what we can at where…
You are more…….
Sometimes we feel less than. It can be caused by a stranger, boss, co-worker, friend, family member, or a partner in life. Things they say or how they treat you can make you feel belittled, disrespected, or degraded. It hurts and tears at your inner being. It can have you questioning your qualities, abilities, worthiness, or even your purpose. It could be about your job position, a silly disagreement, or your meaning of life. Depending on the length of time you deal with it, it can be breaking you down. You shouldn’t question anything about your life unless it’s to better yourself and not putting yourself down. If you work,…
