I am the passenger…

As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life -- and travel -- leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks -- on your body or on your heart -- are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt. I'm not here … Continue reading I am the passenger…

I get by with a little help from my friends…

I had another post ready to go for today but something much more important has come up. My youngest sister is a full time student working multiple jobs to pay her own way.  She's an excellent student, very involved outside of class and is an amazing person.  She's done mission work in Honduras (read her … Continue reading I get by with a little help from my friends…

A year full of awesome

I'm not a fan of the whole "New Year, New You" concept.  I've always thought it was hokey, cheesy and so on.  With that being said, 2016 was a craptacular year and I want to do everything I can to make 2017 better.  I want it to be a year full of awesome and happiness. … Continue reading A year full of awesome

Cyberbully – My Story

Last week, Channel 4 aired a chilling drama titled Cyberbully starring Maisie Williams (of Game of Thrones fame) as teenager Casey who falls prey to online trolling and bullying.  I say chilling for a few reasons... For a start, Casey is an online troll herself so when she becomes the victim of an anonymous cyberbully, you can … Continue reading Cyberbully – My Story

It’s not me… it’s you.

Earlier this afternoon, I hit a new low.  I actually had a freakout at my husband about how my life wasn't what it should be, how I wasn't as 'together' as my friends and how, as a couple, we basically sucked compared to everyone else... no babies, no awesome date nights, no nice house and … Continue reading It’s not me… it’s you.
