Once upon a time, I would lie to protect my family and myself.  However, in 1998, I blocked out much of my childhood and started over.  Little by little, everything has been exposed then I wrote an autobiography.  I have nothing to hide, nor do I want fake people in my life who do shady things behind my back.  I share the good, bad, and ugly in my writings and videos.  It isn’t always pretty, but it is real.  Sometimes I keep very private personal matters to myself until I am prepared to discuss them, but I do not lie or make up lies on someone else.

I believe talking is healing, but it needs to be with people who love you, not people who will make a mockery of your situation.  When it comes to opening your soul, please try to watch the company you are around when you decide to erupt.  Last night I was caught off guard and in a room full of children when a family member decided to tell some very personal news.  Had the setting been different, I can assure you that the conversation would have gone in another direction.  Better communication is always the key to successful relationships.  Lies tend only destroy them.

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
