Despite All My Rage

This autumn is just beginning, but it will be the first one in years I’ll be able to experience with a heart full of honest joy. If I seem contemplative lately, it’s because I’m often reminded of the words and the heartbreak I experienced as last summer ended.

Stepping Outside

All the snarky details aside, when it came tumbling down I was scared to death that my kids were going to end up broken because that crappy illusion I had built for them was being destroyed.

Well, this is awkward.

If my blog was a friend, I would feel awfully guilty to be having this conversation with it. Like, I’ve been away for a really long time with no word whatsoever and now I’m just ready to pick back up where we left off. That’s cool, right?

It Takes A Village

Every day I am amazed at how much my life has changed in the last six months, or how different I am from who I was a year ago. Maybe I can leave some of the self-criticism behind me now and get back to self-improvement.
