2015 was by far the worst year for my entire 31 years on this earth. You may remember that I fell off the planet and didn’t write for the majority of the entire year and that when I came back I promised that I’d explain it all, but the further we got into 2015 and the further we get away from it the less I want to go back through it all. So I’m not going to rehash it. I just decided. Like this second I decided that. However, I proclaimed to my Facebook friends a month or so ago that I would write a book. I wrote about a chapter and stopped because it got too hard to relive events of 2015. I hope that the further we get away from it, the more I can write, and deliver on this book that I’ve promised myself that I would write.
“If you think positive thoughts, positive things will happen”
“You can change the future if you just think positively”
“If you can’t love yourself, how will anyone else love you?”
Have you ever heard these phrases or other phrases like these? Do you think they’re a load of shit like I do? Er, did. Like I did? Let me explain.
Today is November 3rd and the last blog post I wrote was Nov 7th, 2014. It’s been a full year.
Last Friday was the last day at my big cushy corporate job. I’m entering into this huge life transition and it felt right to come back here, to this blog, to you to talk through it. You guys, 2015 has been the hardest year of my life. Harder than any sickness I ever had or any surgery recovery. I plan to tell you all about it someday but for right now I just want to look forward.
I have some major reflecting to do. This is probably going to be wordy so I apologize in advance. Wait…no. No I don’t apologize because as I reflect on the last 10 years of my life…there is a lot to say. Continue reading “So long twenties, and thanks for all the crap”
Whelp…I’m dating again and because I can’t keep my mouth shut about my butt, I know I’m getting some new hits to this site from potential mates. I’ve talked a lot about dating in some previous posts on Health Central. One about relationship essentials for IBDers, another about dating tips. I figure I’m no ace when is comes to dating so I wanted to reach out to my new visitors with a letter.
So I started roller derby. I know, right?! After much talking and about a million questions to my good friend Christy over at Ostomy on the Track, I finally decided (after almost 10 years of wishing) that it was time to start training and work towards getting placed on a team.
