What Happens When You Find Your PASSION

NINE YEARS of “The Infomercial Fail” Ya. All. I cannot tell you how good it feels to be acting in crystal clear clarity while I go forward in my goal of empowering my fellow offbeat creatives. And this isn’t bragging. It’s been a good NINE years that I’ve been slowly stumbling toward this realization. PAINFULLY…

The Danger of Perceived Security

During my business conference an instructor quoted Helen Keller and it struck a chord. There truly is no such thing as security. My life right now is about trying to build myself up to be as solid as possible – independent from codependency, debt, possessions, and the need for approval. During this time I’m also…

The Flaw Finder

Learning While Adventuring When I said that my trip was “eye-opening” in my previous post, I was referring to a few experiences, this one in particular.  Let me explain. Things that I know about myself:  I can be pushy/bossy/stubborn/whatever you want to call it.  I can also be overly helpful when mayyyyybe someone didn’t even…

Biggest Lessons in Traveling Solo

Lesson One – Solo is not for me This may sound like a cop out but the biggest lesson I learned during my travels is that I prefer not to travel solo. **Let me preface this by saying that I’ve fluctuated between the independent and codependent behaviors since I was a kid.  It changes, I’m not…

Swearwords as motivation

If you’ve read my blog in the last couple of weeks you may recall this post here:  It’s a Process – try, fail, succeed In that post I shared a lovely graphic that I made in the hopes of inspiring you to embrace failure. Well, after asking a representative at Canva if I could use swearwords…

I’ve always had a knack for carelessly jumping head-first into whatever grand idea I thought was The Best Idea Ever at any given time.  I would chalk this up to the poor decision making abilities that come with my bipolar, but this goes way back into childhood.  I broke my arm when I…

Chronic Loneliness – Is it or isn’t it?

Ain’t No Pity Party! Lemme preface real quick and say that this is no woe-is-me post, this is simply me indulging in my love of psychology and weird ability to observe then write about my own feelings.  Perhaps others have felt this way too and can relate, maybe even feel a little better about those…

The Expiration Date of Humans – YOLO

Doctor’s Orders I’ve been sick with allergies for the past week which for the most part has made me useless – thus no blog and very little social activity.  I had a long overdue follow up appointment with my rhuematologist on Tuesday in which I received multiple sass downs (like 6 shades less than a…

The Self Help Savant

I consume media of the “self help” genre as if it’s an essential component of my existence.  I wish I could explain exactly why but I don’t have a 100% certain answer – it could be that one day I want to be a life coach, or that I’m still lost on the search to…
