Those Who Knew About Covid-19 And Travelled Anyway Are Selfish

Psssttttt…hey you…yeah, you!  The one who is cavalier about Covid-19, out there travelling, amongst groups of people doing the same thing, thinking that you’re going to somehow get home again, self-isolation be damned when you get back and while away.  You’re one of the ones who is spreading this virus all over the place andContinue reading “Those Who Knew About Covid-19 And Travelled Anyway Are Selfish”

Why Estrangement Doesn’t Mean “The End”

While growing up, I had a huge tortuous game of tug o’ war over the idea that I was creative as well as having been and wanting to be a “helper”.  It’s something like wanting to help others while creating a space for myself in a world where helping others means you’re poorer unless you’reContinue reading “Why Estrangement Doesn’t Mean “The End””

Estrangement: Professionals/Experts…STOP IT!

A letter to those doctors, experts, writers, so-called professionals about how you’re hurting people and why.

Time To Leave

  It’s amazing how much something means to you until it’s threatened, isn’t it? A recent wind-storm has badly damaged a much old, tall and beloved tree in our backyard.  It’s something that I could always count on being there and have fought, hammer, tooth and nail with a bordering neighbour to keep.  His reasoningContinue reading “Time To Leave”

Doing The Opposite of What You Have Been Doing If You’re Getting No Good Results May Be Healthy For All Concerned

AUDIO VERSION: (Transcript below for those who prefer to read but, will differ somewhat from the audio version.)   I’m about to start doing the opposite to what I have been doing because, as Albert Einstein has been quoted as saying, “The definition of insanity is doing the same things and expecting a different result.”Continue reading “Doing The Opposite of What You Have Been Doing If You’re Getting No Good Results May Be Healthy For All Concerned”

Life Teaches Us Lessons Whether We Want Them or Not

There’s no one walking this planet who hasn’t fallen upon hard times, lost people they loved or cared about, taken ill, had emotional issues or whatever else one can add into the mix.  No matter what we all would love to think, no one can escape these things.  It doesn’t matter how much money weContinue reading “Life Teaches Us Lessons Whether We Want Them or Not”

When The Sky Seems Like It Will Fall

I’m going to say this to get it off of my chest and shoulders. “I’m having a HARD time and I don’t see an end to it in the near future, which only magnifies the whole experience further!”  You likely don’t know what I mean, do you?  Or perhaps, you do?  Maybe, you are alsoContinue reading “When The Sky Seems Like It Will Fall”

Helping: Doorway to Heaven Or Hell

For most of my life, I’ve tumbled somersaults for other people and mothered, mothered and mothered them.  Why, I don’t know the answer to yet but, I do know that the only thing it’s done is to both open a doorway for people to use me as well as to shun me when they don’tContinue reading “Helping: Doorway to Heaven Or Hell”

Jesus Christ I’m Not A Robot!

For the first 40 years of my life, I thought I was Jesus Christ. Has your draw dropped yet? No, I’m not insane or psychotic and I don’t mean literally  but, I am extremely sensitive, a people pleaser (though you might not know it from by blog pieces), overly emotional, sentimental and, my dad’s favouriteContinue reading “Jesus Christ I’m Not A Robot!”

Helping Can Become An Addiction Or An Escape

Helping others is a noble cause and more often than not, people need and want help to some extent or another but, when it becomes a habit within oneself it’s no longer about helping but, rather an outward expression of how one is feeling about themselves internally. There’s a pay-off for chronic helpers in manyContinue reading “Helping Can Become An Addiction Or An Escape”
