We struggle. We make mistakes. We argue. But there is always support. We lift each other up. We apologize. We want the best for each other. We strive to make each other better; to make each other feel appreciated and respected. Our personal goals are … Continue reading Quality Over Quantity
As I publish my 50th post I contemplate all that you know about me. I contemplate what I know about myself, what I have expressed to you, and how to continue expressing it. The whole point of this is to show myself that it is … Continue reading 50th Post
‘Dropped the ball’ is the understatement of the century. I couldn’t bring myself to watch Nassar’s sentencing hearing this week (until the actual sentencing). I watched the first 4 days cringing and holding back tears while young ladies face the monster who sexually abused them. … Continue reading How did this happen?
Wow! I am writing this a year after I attended the Women’s March in Atlanta on January 21, 2017 Let Us March. A day that changed my outlook and changed my life. As the year progressed I have tried to narrow down my options to one issue to spend my time and money on. The issue that means the most to me. I quickly found out that not only do they all mean a lot to me, but they are all under attack. This administration is making America white again, and that pisses me off. Women, minorities, education, environment, land, voting, Planned Parenthood, and others are in serious jeopardy. I have spent time and money on educating myself and helping different organizations fight for everything I believe in. And although I do not have a lot of money to spend, I am fully aware it is better spent on something I believe in than materialistic shit.
I will do more.
I vow that this year I will be better and I will work harder. For myself and for everyone else. Education is vital in understanding what is happening and what is at risk. I whole-heartedly believe this is a time in our nation that women will look back on and be proud.
We work hard. We speak out. We don’t give a damn what people think.
I am so proud to be here, in this time, fighting for equal pay, equal rights, and equal opportunity. Women are the future, and you’re either with us or against us.
We will win.
In a world where everyone is just sooo busy this seems to be extremely accurate… There are very few people in my life who would meet me for dinner with a couple days’ notice and not cancel at the last second. There are even fewer that … Continue reading Priorities
We, as humans, are not perfect. We are quite the opposite. Unfortunately for us, everyone expects perfection. Even if you think you don’t, you do. People expect level-headed, rational, perfectly shaped, and proper individuals. People expect you not to throw a temper-tantrum, or have cellulite, or be … Continue reading Imperfections
As I am finally recovered from a couple blows to my confidence and self-esteem I am enjoying being by myself. I enjoy it more now than I ever have. I think it’s because I know I’m not really by myself. Although I spend a lot of … Continue reading There’s an App for That
