Living by Possibilities, Not Guarantees

One of the hardest things that I found is not being able to have control over everything in life. It’s not the circumstances that get to me, but people and their actions that tends to be the hardest. There is that fear that by losing control, than something bad could happen. A bad review, an argument, or not getting the relationships that you want in life.

Making Tough Decisions

Over the years, I have had to make two difficult decisions for me. The first was deciding where I would live, and the second being what type of career that I would pursue. I’ve had to reinvent myself over the years. I went to college to become a private practice counselor. Although instead, I have found my greatest passion to be in writing. My hope is to write full-time someday.

Taking a Chance

Risks are different for each person. There are some who are fearless and will take the chance on any adventure. Skydiving or even swimming with the sharks allows them to take chances. Others are less likely when faced with these challenges. Truth is that many of us are great with evaluating risks.

A True Measure

I was always under the impression that compatibility was more of a factor. When did logic overrule the feelings that develop into love? I have to question if there is truth to this thinking.  

Bells and Whistles

There are many different types of relationships that we can have with people. Some of them are acquaintances others we call friends.

Bringing back Woodstock

We could return to a time of inspiration and influence where we can decide who we want to be. We don’t have to be like borrowed books sitting on a shelf. Instead, we can live with a poetic vision and a Woodstock feel for tomorrow.

When Alone

With technology taking over, we are more alone than ever. Instead of talking with people or spending time with others, we have become more reliant on ourselves. That’s not a bad thing, if we know to embrace it. Knowing how to use solitude wisely can bring about a renewed self. Without understanding how to be…

Compromise with a Capital C

Compromise, it’s one of those words that often define what you are willing to change or willing to put aside for a relationship.
