Leaving vs. Letting Go


You walk out the door and think that you have left the emotional attachment to the person behind. But, little do you know that your abrupt departure has created a sturdy cord of attachment to the other person. It is not obvious to you at first until you find yourself driving past their house blasting your stereo.

Then, calling them randomly but, not leaving a message. You tell yourself that you do not really want to talk to them. And perhaps you only want the other person to feel your presence...just in case they have any crazy notions about moving on without you.

You have left and now the grass does not seem so green. The world seems to have grown colder since you left. The old vices are not offering the same comforts as they once did. You feel foolish because you know that it is only a matter of time before they move on from the relationship.

You start to wonder how you can get back into their good graces. Material goods will not work. You begin to plot and plan a way to come back.You vow to do it the right way this time.

You want to explain to them that you may have left... but, you refuse to let go.

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
