I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.
"If you would just (X, Y or Z), you would be happy." I'm sure each one of us could fill in the blanks accordingly.
As a child, I loved doing puzzles. Although it's been some time, I recall going to my Grandmother's home, continuing where we had left off. I can't remember if it was 500 or 1,000 pieces, it is one of my favorite memories to this day.
I've been thinking about my life the past couple of weeks, decade maybe. What has happened within the last two years is not what was planned. A tattoo which reads, "I am not afraid of life or death, nor the inbetween... the journey itself cannot be planned, lies in the unforeseen", graces my forearm. Thoughts of what might have been, what was and the yearing for something more floats about. I have now accepted my blessings and have come to more than one conclusion. It is time to let go, embrace what is and move towards an amazing journey into whatever the future brings.
My sisters and I were taught respect for our elders. This meant when Grandpa walked into the living room, we were to part faster than the Red Sea. If any adult walked into the room, children were required to sit on the floor, giving up all rights to their favorite seat in any room of the house. Although we didn't say "Yes Maam, Yes Sir", we were taught to listen, obey and be pleasant. Oh how far we've come.
