Seeing is Believing, or Do We See What We Believe?

Ever wonder if you see better with your eyes closed?

When I close my eyes, I see inkblots of light and shadows, and like a Rorschach, I make out tigers, angels, demons, and my favorite, I swear I see Jesus Christ giving me a hug. I know. Sounds so stupid,…

How We Unlearn the Truth as we Grow Up

I remember that age when I discovered I actually didn't know everything, and now I'm reaching an age where I realized I knew more as a child than I ever will as an adult. It's as if we unlearn the spirit as we grow up.

In my youth, I thought I had all the answers. Then I learned as I grew that I knew nothing. I’m now hitting the age where I realize I knew better as a child than I ever did as an…

A Letter to My Children When they are Teens and I’m probably Dead

I was driving today passed a church, and the sign asked something like, “If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, would you live differently today?” My first response was inappropriate, but as my brain drifted, I was thinking…

To Dream of True Love

To Dream of True Love, what love is really true?

This week’s Finish the Sentence Friday is, “While I was sleeping, I dreamt…” I can’t come up with anything poetic to go with it because my dreams are like the subject of autism. Too much info. They should be a…

As I hop through Maslow’s hierarchy, I find what I truly need, from food to soul food. Climbing this pyramid is a high no drug can take you. If I only had financial security. I could afford all the things…

I’d Be Happy If…

I’d be happy if I could just have a little bit more money, enough to be financially secure and stable. I’d be happy if I could just get an extra hour’s sleep or an extra hour to finish up. C’mon…

How to Be Beautiful: A Reflection of Beauty

How to Be Beautiful A Reflection of Beauty by Michelle Grewe of Crumpets and Bollocks

OMG, when I look in the mirror, I’m a fat cow! Ask anyone in high school, I was a, “fat cow.” The whispers of the insecure dressed in holier-than-thou costumes echoed through the hallways of pencils and ammonia, “OMG, look at what that…

I learned…

What I learned in 2015. Forgiveness.

In 2015, I learned… I learned I am getting better. During the Mayan Apocalypse (if you remember that), I hit a new level of crazy between motherhood and sleep deprivation, and a lot of crazy things happened to me (haunted…

I Suck.

I suck. And that's Ok. You are more important than imperfection.

My title has a lot of Freudian-based sexual innuendo there. They just simply do not make a pill for this. I’m sorry. What I’m really trying to say is… I know I suck, but I’m learning to be ok with…
