Perhaps an angel told you once of love,

A spirit pure, not knowing fear or shame.

Until that whispered word, perhaps, you came

Less willing to the winds that some hearts move,

After which you had for them a name.

18 and I like it

Sunday, June 24, 2012

I was 18 when I kissed my parents goodbye, and moved in with Rick. June 17th, 1990. I had just graduated from high school, and was ready to start my "adult" life. I worked at a Montessori school over the summer, until I found out I was pregnant. I then decided to get a better paying job, in a Medical Records department in a private hospital. I worked nights, scanning files into microfilm.  We also got our first apartment in 1991, a few blocks from my work.

Being ready to figure out what you wanted to do with your life was a goal.  When I close to leave home, I knew I was ready to start a life with Rick, and getting pregnant was a bonus, not the reason for us to be together.

Now, what, twenty two years later, I am still with Rick, and we are figuring out what our next move is, now that our daughter is 21, and starting her own journey.  It's difficult, because the three of us was all we knew for the past two decades!

Do we continue to remodel the house? Do we travel? Do we focus on paying off the house? What? Do I finally go back to school once again?  All these questions race through my mind, and sleep has been slim to none.

Rick tells me we have to focus on one day at a time.  However, just like when I was 18, I like having goals.  Goals are wishes, that you take steps to put into actions.  Short and long term plans is what made this household work.

I don't think Alyssa knows how much we sacrificed in the past 22 years, to provide, to teach, to guide, and to ultimately realize that her life is HER own, and she needs her own goals, and dreams in order to enter the next phase.  Sure party and running around is fun, but that's only a "part" of the balance of work, bills, and steps towards what you really want to accomplish.

I see people trying to relive their high school and younger days.  Of course, that is their choice, but in my mind that's not forward progress.

Age 40, and this entire year and build up to 40 has been a trying time for me.  Part of my anxiety is not having the next phase at all in my plans.  Structure is good for a person like me, perhaps like many of us.

I think before any decisions can be made, Rick and I need a few days off, not thinking about any of this.  Maybe a week vacation, out of town, out of state, somewhere to get a break from our mind will do us wonders.

So this is where I have been at my friends. Mind racing, and attempting to figure out what I need to do, so I can plan the next phase.

Thank you for reading. It even took days to find the right words to compose this one!

Happy Sunday!

Perceptions of strength

Thursday, June 21, 2012

I'm tired my friends.

I have been the Pillars of Strength since I can remember, and at age 40, I am truly losing hope in why I bother trying to keep it all together. What is the sense in working hard, doing what I think are the right things for myself, my family, my work, even here my website?  Where is the serenity?

Working on five years sober, and getting myself out of debt, this crummy economy, people going their own paths, I think about my path, and what is the next phase in my life, if there even is one?

I am beginning to wonder if I am strong at all, or have I been just fooling myself because I do have a great husband that gets me through all my psychosis and depression.

Wouldn't it be easier to be helpless? Let people take care of me, and stop trying to add any value and meaning to my own world... When do I stop trying to be that role model, and just throw in the towel?

I have pushed most people away from me, by choice of course, and the ones left have pushed me away because I know my surreal perceptions of strength irritate more than inspire.

My good friend, and boss Dennis tells me all the time that I have to allow people to live their own lives, make their own mistakes. My best friend, and husband Rick wants me to block out the people that have walked away, because it is not my place to interfere.

As a self proclaimed empathic soul, the feelings I perceive from others tell me that they are not happy either. So why do I struggle if we all HUMANS are in the same boat? 

In less than thirty minutes, I will force myself to take my pity party badge off, and just give all my strength to my work, and coaching others to find good work, and potentially a stepping stone to a good f new career. However it drains me.  Where is my Pillar that will guide ME to my next journey?

I truly believe there is only so much cleaning, and routine I can accomplish before I crack.  I won't turn back to alcohol, even though at this point numb and turning off the flooding emotions would be a well deserved and needed break.

My only other thought right at this moment is to get back to my church, which helps me focus on the higher purpose of life. However I do question if that is just another perception of my deranged thought process?  I just do not know.

Being honest with yourself

Monday, June 18, 2012

GROW UP..lol
One of the biggest issues so many of us, including myself is being honest with our lives, circumstances, and events.. especially events that potentially embarrass us.

My daughter Alyssa has been such a joy and source of pride for Rick and I.  It is not without hard work from her, and us! We kick her behind, and stay on top of her weaknesses, and watch her succeed in everything she does.

The stress part, is when she strays from her path, to do whatever it is that she wants to do, not good for her.

Rick and I suck up the grief, and bring her back on the path.  Parenting never ends.

However when do you, as a parent, allow them the right to fail?  I mean, if she wants to throw away her job, her money, her truck, her family all to act like she's a college student on summer break, why should we stand in her way of her happiness? Isn't it her right to throw it all away?

Now that she is 21, we are getting tired of chasing some of her bad decisions.  She has to figure out what she wants in her life.  We all know, the years between 21 and 31 FLY by.  And 30 - 40 was a wink for me. I hope she figures it out soon. Teaching degree, IT career, thrown down the drain.

She has to be honest with herself, even when no one is looking. Does she want to teach, or not? Writing? Reviewing?  Does she want to make her own money, or not? Married? Kids? Soccer mom?

All Rick and I wanted to do was give her the opportunity to save money, work, go to school. But that's what WE want. What does she want?

Or do you bring her back... ??

Suggestions welcome.

Iron Maiden Birthday

Sunday, June 17, 2012

40 today.. Damn.. I am old!

Young at heart, and still love my music, old, young, hard, classical..

But today.. I jam to Iron Maiden! To all of you .. no longer searching for the Wasted Years..




Wasted Years by Iron Maiden

From the coast of gold,
across the seven seas
I'm traveling on, far and wide
But now it seems
I'm just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do
It isn't me but someone else!

I close my eyes and think of home
Another city goes by in the night
Ain't it funny how it is
You never miss it 'til it's gone away
And my heart is lying there
And will be 'til my dying day!

So understand
Don't waste your time
Always searching for those wasted years
Face up...make your stand
And realize you're living in the golden years!

Too much time on my hands
I got you on my mind
Can't ease this pain, so easily
When you can't find the words to say
It's hard to make it through another day
And it makes me want to cry
And throw my hands up to the sky!

So understand
Don't waste your time
Always searching for those wasted years
Face up...make your stand
And realize you're living in the golden years!!
(times three)

One Day At A Time

Friday, June 8, 2012



One Day At A Time Lyrics 
Performed by Jeremy Camp

One day at a time I will walk this road I've traveled so far
One day at a time well I know I will carry on
One day at a time I can see you took my life this far
One day at a time I will take this faith along

All this hope I breathe is given by the hand that carries me
Until I'm complete and I'll take all I will
To understand this plan you have for me,
for me

I've been shut up shut down held out held down
In ways I never knew I would
I CAN feel your fullness in my life
Well I've been burned out broken torn out torn down
In ways I never knew I would
I CAN feel your fullness in my life

One day at a time I will take these words you've given me
One day at a time I will rest in knowing you
One day at a time I will share this gift you've given me
One day at a time I will walk these valleys through

All I know is that I see how much my heart
Is longing to be cradled by your side
And I'll give all I can to one day soon
Be held by your hand,
by your hand

In all these things I will press on
I'll be with you
I know it wont be long

Being Happy Is an Action

On my other blog, I talked about trials and tribulations that can drag a person down, and how to deal intelligently with chaos. 

Living Happy is a choice. Being Happy is an action, not just a word.

It was a rough few days,   Lots of household chores, mortgage tax bills, and trying to catch up on the savings after redoing the living room, and dining room. But I took action for happiness anyway.  Every day this week I had fun but hard workouts with a friend.  Yoga starts next week, and I am very excited.

Going to also take a few days off soon and spend it with my auntie in Wisconsin. I can't wait.

Beginning ways for Meditation

Saturday, June 2, 2012

The following tips can help you meditate:

Create a partnership with your mind. At the beginning of your meditation, explain to the mind that you are calming it to connect to a deeper awareness within yourself. Tell the mind constantly throughout the day that it is safe to meditate because your mind is a sentinel that you created to keep you safe. This creates a partnership with your mind versus the mind resisting your efforts to calm it.

Focus on your breathing.

Give your meditation a focus or a purpose. Learning to meditate is like learning to use a telephone. Once you learn how to meditate or use a phone, what are you going to do with it? Could you imagine picking up a telephone, not dialing a number, and just listen to the dial tone? This is what happens sometimes when we mediate. We calm our mind down but we don't provide any direction for what we want to do during meditation.

Transforming Your Perceptions





You do not have pure experiences. You place perceptions upon your experiences. The perceptions of all your experiences from all your lifetimes are stored in your seven major chakras which are energy centers in your body. Your perceptions of pain, fear and limitation shape your reality of how the world works, how you create, and the boundaries of your existence in this world.

Perceptions exist at an energy level. You transform perceptions by sending them into the power of universal love simply by setting your intent to do so. For your perceptions to reach universal love they must travel through the energies of the mass consciousness. Higher awareness' in this universe have cleared seven energy pathways through the energies of the mass consciousness to make it possible for your perceptions to reach universal love undistorted, to be perfected by that love, and then to be returned to your chakras undistorted. A pathway exists for each one of the seven major chakras.

Before the pathways existed, humanity could not truly transform the perceptions in their chakras because they could not get through the distorting energies of the mass consciousness. People could balance their chakras, rearrange the perceptions in their chakras, but they never could truly transform the perceptions stored in their chakras. This is why the seven energy pathways offer such a monumental opportunity to heal.

How to transform the perceptions in your chakras, using the seven energy pathways:

If your mind needs visual direction, see the energy pathway connect to your chakra that it was specifically designed for. There is a energy pathway designed to connect to each one of your seven major chakras.

Send the perceptions of pain, fear and limitation up the pathways into the golden light of universal love. You do this by simply setting your intent and allowing it to happen.

See and feel the perceptions you released transformed by the beautiful golden light of love. Then see the transformed perceptions return to the chakras that they came from.

The secret to clearing your chakras is realizing you are working with energy you can't feel with your five senses. TRUST that your intent to enter those energy pathways simply puts you there. It is that simple! It is not meant to be difficult in anyway to use these pathways to transform your perceptions.

Save the Drama

Friday, June 1, 2012

I was in my early 20s, working at a well hated Telecommunications Company.. (lol).

Out back was picnic tables, shade, smoking area, and many women...gossiping.  I don't know how or why, but I never wanted to be associated with that type of talk. In fact, if I was talking to people, and gossip started, I made it known I was not interested, and walked away.

What I noticed was, even when I walked away, the chatty cathy's didn't care, they went on like whatever or whomever they news was about like a magazine tabloid.

Drama and gossip never interested me, not even as a kid. By the time I was 18, I had started a family of my own, and was too busy to care who was sleeping with whom, and who is getting a divorce..etc.

What I learned years later was that was one of the reasons I was promoted with this company.  Another manager had witnessed, and was within earshot of the back door.  I guess I walked out to smoke a cigarette, heard what they were talking about, threw up my hands and said, "I don't want to hear this", and walked away. She was impressed that I didn't even stick around to figure out what they were saying.

Unless people are telling me about themselves, I have no interest. My fault with that, is when people tell me their OWN issues, I love to offer advice and ideas. Many people don't want that either!  Just smile and nod..give a hug...That's not me either.

So I am a hermit. And I like it!  I love being home with the family.. I love my job, I love my housework...I love vegging out with music, and recently, now that I feel up to it, love the Gym.

Being a Drama Queen tells me a lot about a person.  The first thing I think about is GET A JOB!!  ROFL!  Cause obviously you have too much time on your hands! We are proud to be an EEO/AA employer M/F/D/V. Must be able to pass a background check. We maintain a drug-free workplace and perform pre-employment substance abuse testing.
