Letting Go and Moving Forward

I’ve been trying to write this post for a couple of days now, but couldn’t get the words out. Each time I tried, it sounded bogus and formal, and didn’t express what I was feeling. So today I’m saying to hell with it, just write what’s on your mind, and stop worrying about how it sounds. I have been on vacation this week, and I have to say, it’s been one of the best I’ve ever taken. Not only did I take a vacation from the office, I took a vacation from the stresses of life. I feel freaking awesome […]

Creating My Future

The last few years, I have spent many days thinking about my future. What am I going to do when I retire from my current day job? What am I going to be when I grow up? What path will I choose that allows me to use the right side of my brain, grow my hair long, become a hippie, and hang out all day in coffee shops? These thoughts have been the top requirements for my next career, and there are others. You can create a lot of stress when you tie this many requirements to one decision, and […]

Catching Up

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately, but life has been a little crazy for the past few weeks.  At least I have been a bit crazy, and haven’t been able to formulate my thoughts.  Life seems to be changing, new directions becoming apparent, and it’s all good.  Friends and family know that my life has been filled with hellish overtones the past 3 years.  All those stressors are gone now, and the universe is open with possibilities again. One would think that after going through a really rough period of bad events and bad people, you would be prepared for […]

The Mayan Oracle

Last night I told Greg that I wanted to go browse around a book store, so we went to a Books-A-Million near our house. I didn’t have any books in mind I wanted to buy, but I just felt the urge to go. We were looking around the New Age section when I spotted a copy of “The Mayan Oracle: A Galactic Language of Light”. It was sitting on the shelf at eye level, and was whispering pick me. The package was shrink wrapped so I couldn’t see the cards, but I knew instantly that I wanted it. I opened […]

Eulogy for my grandmother

My grandmother passed from this life on February 7, 2011 at the grand age of 84. She was one of those people that loved everyone, and everyone loved her. Like all of us, she could have her moments, and at the age 84 she was allowed. But you never walked away from her doubting that she loved you, cared about you, wished you only the best in life. Sadly her funeral did not pay homage to her wonderful life. We spent an hour listening to her fundamentalist pastor preach on hell, suffering, and her sinful grandchildren. Since she only has […]
