Honesty Monologues: Boneyard of Broken Promises


Wending your way through the Boneyard of Broken Promises is not easy. Just remember to put one foot in front of the other. Also, try not to openly gawk at the husks of the abandoned promises He made to you way back when.

It can be tempting to try and warn the poor unfortunate woman whom comes  along after you about the Baron of this particular Boneyard of Broken Promises. However, please do not waste your energy in doing so. She will have to learn on her own much like you did.

Don't you recall how his previous exes, his family/friends, your family/friends tried to warn you about his grandiose promises and his tendency to break them on a regular basis?

Did you listen?

Of course you didn't.

Why?

Because you needed to believe that his past behavior of breaking promises was a reflection of his  most recent Ex. If She would have only kept him happy, he would not have broken his promises to her.

Ironically, once upon a time, She believed the same thing about her predecessor and it took her years to navigate herself through the Boneyard of Broken Promises back into the Land of Sanity. Follow her example and just keeping walking towards the light...do not look back.

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 …
