Sharing Time With Myself

It is Sunday and on this reverent day of relaxation that means it is time to share a story.
I have been working on my own story lately. Trying to find out exactly where I fit in. Slowly but surely I'm finally realizing that I actually don't quite fit in and that's perfectly okay. I've worked on loving myself and falling in love with myself over the past couple years but I have failed myself by focusing on my goals.
Having goals and working towards them is never a bad thing. However, tying your worth to whether or not you meet those goals is problematic. It has been no secret that I am still trying to lose weight and that I desperately want to start a family of my own. I have made progress, I have had setbacks, I have wondered and wandered down the path of self-doubt all while fighting low self-esteem.
I have been seeing a therapist who I believe to be a godsend. She is sweet but straight to the point. She doesn't let me get away with humorous self-deprecating remarks …

Use Your Words: September 11th, 2015

Hello and happiest Friday to you. Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now. At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.  I’m using:   vacuum ~ helicopter ~ quickly ~ desperate ~ editor They were submitted by:Dinosaur Superhero Mommy

The Darkness The Liar

This darkness is tricky.

Because it can hide.

Behind a smile, within a laugh, around the deceptive edges of an "I'm fine" it lurks.

This darkness is tricky.

Because it is all consuming.

It suffocates any spark of light, any hint of hope, it races to subdue it, to wrestle it wrongly to the ground, weighing heavily to each atom, dragging every fiber of the being down. Down so deep.

This darkness is tricky.

Because it lies.

It whispers coy and curt words in the middle of the night, it negates any feelings of self-love or appreciation, and it doubts any success and loudly proclaims any future endeavors will be failures with the most convincing and conniving tones.

This darkness is tricky.

Because it makes you think it lasts forever.

It tells you that you cannot fight. That you cannot win. That you will not ever be better.It is bitter and biting. It gleefully rejoices and reminds you that you are nothing more than the sum of your mistakes.

This darkness is tricky.
