I am a 31 year old novice writer. My writing is filled with emotion, pain, turmoil, conquering and overcoming the daily strains that life throws at us.

It starts with words…

If you want a happy life, it starts with your words. You can’t be happy with yourself when you have just uttered unkind words to either a loved one or  a stranger. You can’t be happy if you’ve conjured up awful mean thoughts to someone who cut you off in the grocery queue or at … Continue reading

Self Sabotage Part II – Emotional Landmines

Self Sabotage

From my previous notes…(which I will get back to) I’m taking a drastic change in my thought process.

Know Me…

The reinvention of self doesn’t happen when you hate the person you are. And how can you reinvent someone you don’t know? My strength was needed. My strength was always there sustaining me. But my full strength was blocked by meaningless thoughts that were at odds with my emotions; toxic emotions that had hijacked my mind, … Continue reading

Let’s Come On into Focus

OK this is a question that I was working on for the Mark Allender page but it turned into a telenovela…it’s just too much to separate the he said/she said.
