Stage of Grief: Anger. Stage of Life? Unknown

Stage of Grief: Anger. Stage of Life? Unknown. Sometimes the anger is overwhelming, almost blinding. It's to be expected, I suppose. There are stages of grief even when you are mourning your former self, and no one can stay calm and collected forever.

Sometimes the anger is overwhelming, almost blinding. It’s to be expected, I suppose. There are stages of grief even when you are mourning your former self, and no one can stay calm and collected forever. When I woke up unable to walk 17 months ago, I was terrified.

Blogging Authentically

Blogging Authentically

I read a great blog post about being authentic. It wasn’t from a blogger I follow, and have no idea where it was from, which sucks because I’d love to link to it so EVERYONE can read it. One of the most challenging things as a blogger is that we are usually sharing our lives…

Are You a Lovable Curmudgeon or Just a Bitch?

In my blogging life, I am known as a lot of things. Snarky being the first thing most people say. Witty? Maybe… Would I say I’m witting? No. I’d say I’m rude and sarcastic, but people think it’s funny and some how akin to wit. But as time has moved forward (as it’s bound to…

A Responsible Bad Influence

Can You Be a Responsible Bad Influence?

Everyone has heard the phrase “a misspent youth.”  I can attest that I had one.  I am THAT person who is a product of a misspent youth.  I had alcohol poisoning four times before I turned 21.  I had many nights of partying late, doing things I shouldn’t, and generally causing trouble. Now, aside from…
