When I was 19-years-old, I was a hot mess… But I don’t know that I would change anything because it all turned out okay — for the most part…
My eyes popped open and a chill went up my spine, but I wasn’t afraid. To the contrary, I was surprised, but pleasantly so; it was uncanny, as if my thoughts had been read. A euphoric sensation bubbled up from my toes to the top of my head and my mouth formed into a smile. Continue reading “What a Rush”
I might be submerged under the cloud that’s been following me around lately, but I still have plenty to be thankful for. . . No frills, but it is there. . .

In the midst of our email conversation about body image & men’s reactions to women’s bodies, he said that men have to learn through trial & error, so I asked, “Does that mean that I should consider myself lucky that we met when we did, rather than sooner?” His response?
I’ve written a lot about being depressed & needing to improve, but not a whole lot about the things that make me happy. SO, here is a quick, far-from-all-inclusive list, in no particular order. Some are astronomical; some are seemingly insignificant. All are smile-inducing. Continue reading “10 Every-Day Smile-Inducing Occurrences”
