Change is Good

While driving to work this morning, I got honked at. I could have predicted it. I’m cruising in the middle lane, speed limit of 45, and my right turn was coming up in about a quarter of a mile. No music playing, no checking my phone; it’s just me, the road, and normal morning traffic conditions. I’m aware of the red two-door in the right lane, about two car lengths behind. I put my blinker on, giving it a second or two, and look over...

A New Year’s Resolution

Let me start by saying thank you. Thank you for following.  Thank you for being a fan.  Thank you for the likes, comments and shares.  Thank you for sticking around.  Thank you for being you.  Thank you for allowing me to be me.  Thank you for your time.

My Imaginary Friend

It affects my relationships to the point I’m unable to hear what you’re saying, let alone comprehend it.  It takes the enjoyment out of moments, and I’m less observant of my environment.  It’s like a leech sucking the blood, little by little, and dehydrating my happiness.  It takes my energy, my focus and my ability to pursue the good in things.  It consumes my every thought, and drains me emotionally.  It kills me. It’s called Worry,...
