I came across this meme and wanted to share because I am hoping for respectful messages and comments from my predominantly male audience here. As a woman I find it refreshing to find a message that really pushes personal responsibility over blame when it comes to healing past hurts and being careful, or least aware if/when I start projecting. One of the things I have learned is that having really good platonic friendships provides insight to when this starts happening to me in my romantic relationships. The less emotional objective nature of platonic relationships allows me the space to evaluate these things more clearly. I want to take a few moments to express why I truly value my male friendships and although our perspectives can be quite different we have forged open, honest dialogue which is a rare commodity these days, especially when it comes to the dating pool. One of the things I love most is our uncanny ability to tease apart the stereotypes of gender differences. For example, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine the other day about dating people in our age group . Let’s face it, relationships are hard and time gets away from us. He’s giving it up for a while because of the game playing and women wanting too much attention. I have no doubt there are plenty of women out there who are manipulative and demanding but I was able to take the opportunity to bring the stigma down to a personal level and let him know at least for me , it’s not attention for attention sake. He of course already knows I am not an attention seeker as we have known each other quite a while so it gave him pause when I explained that in my case it was simply about occasional reassurance. I am independent and am attracted to men who are independent. I’m not looking for 24/7 time spent together or attachments to the hip but I do need reassurance my partner is still engaged in the relationship across time and miles. For me, quality communication is the foundation of safe relationships. It’s not about frequency or length, it’s about the exchange, the play on words and funny quips but again I am only speaking my truth here and no-one else’s.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!

The first step toward anything great in my life came with my willingness to be fearless in the face of being scared. I just learned to surrender and trust myself. Because at the end of the day, the only person we can always trust to tell us the truth is ourselves.

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. I haven’t felt much inspiration to journal lately but today ended up being an unexpected snow day and I found myself feeling introspective.

I guess I’ve felt an attachment to wolves from childhood on. I remember my mom giving me the book “Women Who Run With Wolves” as a young adult and it really resonated with me. A resilient, fierce spirit that I have relied on during hard times. Fierce as in determination. Although I have mellowed, I feel just a spark of my tamed fierceness still burning just enough to keep me moving through life’s failures and am grateful that mine is still burning. Is yours?

I thought it best to get my fall pic up before we get too much more snow and it's time for the winter pic. Sadly, this year most of the leaves fell before they had a chance to change to their vibrant autumn colors.

Sunday afternoon art project. Not only do I enjoy taking photos of flowers, I also enjoy sculpting them from paper as well. I think I finally started to figure out my process and technique for roses.
