Tempering Your Expectations of Others

Disappointment. Ugh. Something that I use to feel….a lot. I had to ask myself this question many, many times “why am I disappointed so much?” The answer wasn’t in the people that disappointed me. The answer was in how I had expectations of people. It was…

Losses

As I look back its clear that a number of the losses I’ve experienced in my life were not really a loss at all. I say that because out of a “loss” something wonderful, enlightening or beautiful happened. Granted during the time of the “loss” I was…

All Diamonds Need To Withstand the PRESSURE

Life is far from perfect. By nature, life in all its forms is not perfect. Something is always going to happen that we didn’t expect nor like. Case in point. The last several months have been my own personal monster ball. Everything ranging from health…

If You’re Already On the Floor…It Can’t Get Any Worse so GET UP!

Hard to hear when you are on the floor in the fetal position right? You don’t have to tell me because I’ve been there – SEVERAL TIMES. And the person telling me to get back up was my Dad. In between my ugly snot filled…
