Why can’t we all be friends?

In a perfect world there would be no fighting. Everyone would be nice to one another and there would be no drama. Everyone would instantly like everyone.. Sadly there is no chance of that ever happening, ever… I feel mostly due to an individuals lack of self love and insecurity (sometimes masked as narcissism). TheContinue reading “Why can’t we all be friends?”

Someplace I never should have been

The scale is up. And while I am not one that is driven by the scale, when the scale and my body are in alignment that is when I must face the music.

Victoria is having a hard time keeping my secret

I am not weight obsessed. This journey that I’ve been traveling has evolved and changed and grown so many times.. Once a upon a time, that number was what lead me.

No resolutions, no regrets

Walking gently away from 2021

Growing up Pop always said “one man’s garbage is another man’s treasure” actually he still says it … 2021 for me, was mostly a treasure and for my last day of 2021, I took the time to really wrap myself up in my riches.

Where do you find your motivation?

So my love language is Acts of Service – thank you Gary Chapman; followed closely by quality time.

Physical touch, well I’m not a huggerContinue reading “Where do you find your motivation?”
