Admins of facebook groups

  Have you ever noticed that an admin of any group on Facebook believes that somehow they have become king or queen of an entire country?  I have.   Examples I have seen are a disturbing trend amongst those with self-esteem issues lower than the roots of a thirty-year-old tree. Of course, we also see …

Facebook Mom

I am seeing this more and more and it is really grating at my last nerve!      I don’t mind of course seeing a mom post to their child’s wall “dinner is ready”, though I admit I don’t like seeing it a lot, it isn’t as bothersome as a lot of other things I …

Broken Family

A death in the family should bring people closer together, not rip the family further apart.  While my family is quite divided, I would have thought this terrible tragedy would have brought about resolve, peace, and love as we all struggle to deal with the loss. I was wrong —   It’s been a nightmare …

Is it a mirage?

PEOPLE ARE NOT ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM…ARE THEY?   Some times, it is as if I am listening to a wood chipper right next to my ear, chipping away at branches as I sit wincing at that screeching grinding noise that accompanies it.    It makes me very uncomfortable and suspicious when someone will tell me all about how …

Life ends…

Sad news..My husbands’ mother did pass away, as did his Nana the week before. It has been a very trying time for him and his entire family.    I met his Nan in 2005. She was a sweet, little lady with a lot of energy. She played bingo everyday, ate like a horse at dinner …

Hypocrites

    I think we can all agree we’ve met at least one, if not a few in our time. I find these people quite interesting; I often wonder if they even take a look at themselves before they go spouting off at the mouth?   An example might be a man who steals tools …

Why am I so intuitive?

Having recently had a wonderful visit with a dear friend, who’s more like a twin, I say that because we are very much alike. It is of great comfort to me to know her and spend time with her because if I did not have her, I would go through life explaining that I am …

I’m Keen…

Gut Feelings, The Intelligence of the Unconscious – 2008 publication Saying “I’m Keen” doesn’t mean I think I’m great or that I’m ready for anything. It means that I have an ability to see peoples motives, and even when I “suspect” them, I often ignore them..it is later that I can say “I knew it”. …

Us, the human race

The Power of Integrity: Building a Life Without Compromise  Integrity: Good People, Bad Choices, and Life Lessons from the White House  I find myself asking, what in the hell is going on with people?  I can give a hundred examples of why I ask, and quite honestly, worry.  Recently, I was involved in something on …
