“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”

(get yourself together)

You have beautiful children!

thank you! We’re so blessed

(they terrify me

can you see that

In my eyes? I hope


They need so much

from me and I

am so empty

but I am trying

trying so very hard

trying to keep it


You look great!

1. The unbridgeable distance between heartache and hello again.

2. The empty embrace of ex-lovers reunited by  loneliness.

June 1 is the start of my 91-day time away from distractions so I can focus on some priorities, like...

...I've got this peace of mind now, and this wide open heart, and it is well...it is will...with my soul...

I'm not the most patient person you're ever going to meet. I can be fairly patient with others, but with myself--my own goals, relationships, progress--not so much. I have that whole "I like things to happen, and if they don't happen I'll make them happen" attitude. Th...

Because what you are holding onto—resentment, anger, frustration, regret—is holding you back, sucking your energy into a lower frequency, one you don’t want to operate in. Acknowledge it, refuse to let it control you, and choose to let it go.

And while you’re at it, let...

Every time I hear Arianna Huffington speak, she talks about having a mother with limited resources who made things happen anyway.
