I feel broken and that feeling just isn't going away easily. I was tough on myself, gave myself a break, took things one step at a time, and tried many other ways to feel better. Yes, I get through the day (not without difficulty) but this is not the way to progress, get the things … Continue reading Navigating Rock Bottom
Momentum...The reason I love this word and used it in the title is that this is what makes us. The momentum built of what we do everyday regularly in our lives. It is our habits and lifestyle choices that determine what becomes of us more than anything else. I have been trying bit by bit … Continue reading How to Live a Day

Today, I read a list of goals that I made for myself 3 years ago. Yes, I did achieve some of them but 10% success rate is not something I want to give myself a pat on the back for. No, my list of goals was not unreasonably out of reach. I also revisited something … Continue reading Becoming More

The unexamined life is not worth living. This quote is credited to Socrates who is recognized for contributions to philosophy and posing questions to his students that generated new insights and ideas. In observing general social behaviours, talking to others, and reflecting on my own thought processes, I see that the average lifestyle does not … Continue reading Examine Life
Once, a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and full of problems. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed as if just when one problem was solved, another one soon followed. Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled 3 pots with water … Continue reading Coffee, Please!
I went from trusting and loving this person, from feeling adored and protected, to licking bitter morsels that he is throwing at me off the ground whenever he senses that I am starting to break free. Now I understand why sociopaths are dubbed "human heroin". I have been shooting pure, unadulterated psychopathic love into my bloodstream for five years. I am coming down from a drug I didn't even know I was on, and the withdrawal has knocked me on my ****ing ass.

I am not great in the kitchen but I am learning. I am perfecting my knowledge a few recipes and … Continue reading Cranberry Almond Biscotti
It seems quite counter intuitive. But I picked up the book with this title by Jocko Willink because, as time has passed and I have struggled, I realized this was true.
