Square Peg ● Round Hole







I am mindful that life isn’t always grand.  It is with a large exhale, that I acknowledge and even embrace when life takes an uncomfortable turn.  It isn’t about being happy all the time (that isn’t realistic), but it is about how you turn a difficult situation into an opportunity to perhaps learn something.

As I walk through, sometimes crawl through, this emotional cleanse, a shift has occurred.   Creatively speaking, the ideas for writing are flowing.   I can’t imagine why I didn’t do this earlier.  Also, I am beginning to take risks while cooking.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would manifest into the kitchen.   It is possible, that I watch too many cooking shows, but in any case, my family is reaping the rewards.  I guess, it is making me more brave, giving me more confidence, and allowing my spirit to emerge.   While being smothered in a pool of toxicity, I lost my spark.

Happiness is inside job.  It is the constant journey of being the best person you can be.   All I have to do is show up and suit up.I am convinced that, while this process is hard, I am seeing myself shed the baggage that has been weighing me down for years.
