“Don’t Look Back”

Life is a journey that starts the day we are born.  I was born into a generational gap in which the world appeared to be so different.  Now that I am older and have experienced some of life’s tragedies and triumphs I understand that there is no generational gap.  It is just a nice way to cover the stupidity and ignorance of our years young.  I would often tell my children, “You cannot put a 48 year old head on an 18 year old body, or what ever age I just happened to be when they did not have...

“Chasing Dreams”

I must say that my life has been in such turmoil for many years now, between impulsive relationships, battling an eating disorder, fighting not only one, but two breast cancer diagnosis the challenge has been real. I have come to realize though, that the greatest challenge was inside myself. I never liked the image of the person looking back at me. I adored my soul and what I stood for, but society doesn’t give much credit to the soul. The majority of life situations start with how you look, and I was always uncomfortable with that. There is some...
