Understanding the life of a Butterfly………

In life, opinion, random thought on January 30, 2011 at 8:21 pm

Butterflies are beautiful creatures.  Besides their beauty, they go through 4 stages in their life called metamorphosis.  Metamorphosis means a drastic change  in form: a complete change in appearance.  Every change serves has a purpose.  Our lives can be compared to the life of a butterfly. Through every stage of our life, we experience new things, learn from them, gather knowledge and grow into the person that we ultimately want to be. So whatever stage you are in your life, change is constant and will always be a beautiful thing.


A moment of your time………On the Couch

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on December 6, 2010 at 5:30 pm

There are times when you have to sit yourself down and reflect on the various moments in your life.  Yes I am having a couch

moment, which is something that I do quite often.  It is my own little me time that no one or nothing can interrupt.  It’s that time of the year again, the blissful end of an old year and the birth of a new one. When I look back on this year, it has truly been an exciting time.  But this year was really different, I actually learned a lot about myself , friends and accomplished 99.9% of the things that I set out to do.  I am so happy that I can say that.   Everyday that I wake, it an opportunity to step further into my purpose and I am excited about this journey.  I am still a work in progress, and that is definitely ok with me.  As I wrap up this moment on the couch, I hope you take the opportunity to sit on your couch.  Until next time, take care.

To Blog or Not To Blog? That remains the question

In musings, opinion, random thought on November 9, 2010 at 6:52 pm

What is it about blogging that grabs hold of one’s attention?  Is it the general excitement, that exuberant feeling of exercising the freedom of expression?  Or is that feeling of safety that comes from hiding behind the words that so many of us would love to say or just simply can’t? Or is it merely a cry for help or a justification of being more than just a pretty face?  There are a myriad of reasons and there is no wrong answer.  When you step into the shoes of the person behind the words, you may discover something that was always right in front of you but just could not see.   For some, blogging is a waste of time and for others it is another canvass for creativity. Whatever the reason, it is here to stay, no question about it. Happy blogging!

nOtE tO SelF: The meaning of time

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on October 20, 2010 at 4:15 pm


On my way to work today, I saw a sign that said ” Time has a way of showing us what really matters.”  That statement is so true when you think about it.  As young adults, we are so anxious to get out into the world. We tend to become caught up with things and people that only matter at the moment. Trying to be in the in crowd and be like the Jones’.

We only focused on what was just two feet ahead of us instead of looking further down the path.

As time passes, those things and people that we wrapped our ideals around don’t matter to us today. It is truly a testament of where you are today-knowing that you have grown as a person.  Having friends and family- those who genuinely care about you and your well-being are still around. These are the moments that truly matter.

Sometimes you have to stop and ask yourself: Why is it that I can’t see the forest for the trees?  Is it that there are just two many trees or is it just that one huge oak blocking your entire view?  Nine times out of ten, it’s that one huge oak.

It is apparent that sometimes in life the best way to deal with someone is to say absolutely NOTHING!   Full Figure monologues……………

This year has truly been a year of self discovery with a hint of asking myself  “what?”  I can really say that I am having so much fun. I have made a list of things to do and I am happy to report, I have scratched through quite a few. The paper is beginning to look like graffiti. I guess it is my bucket  list. It is truly wonderful to be capable of enjoying things to the fullest and I am looking forward to the end of the year where I can look at someone, pause and say ” I have done that!”  It is my sincere hope that you can make a bucket list of things to do that is beginning to look like graffiti. Laugh often, smile,love with all your heart and forgive always.  See ya soon.  Full Figure Monologues……………………………….
