Iceland

A few weeks ago Matty and I as well as a few friends, took a trip to Iceland! This country almost feels like another planet. It was pretty cold the time we were there but you can tell that spring isn’t far away. We got to see the Northern Lights as you will see pictured below. Eek!!!   The pictures speak for themselves so I will let you have a...

Fire Away – Life After Suicide

I came across a song called “Fire Away” from Chris Stapleton so I looked up the music video and now I sit here with a heavy heart and tears streaming down my face. So what do I do? Blog. The song is about one’s fight with depression. You see a husband /wife going through stages in a relationship and the ups and downs of a mental illness. The ultimate price is paid and what is left is destruction. I can relate and...

Stay Strong

I have been shot down a few times over the last few weeks. Little by little things are crumbling. I spent a lot of time trying to get into a doctorate program to find out it wouldn’t be covered.

The other week my mom said something about moving into a smaller house because my dad has Parkinson’s disease. Thinking that she might move freaks me out. My mom has lived in the same house for 20 plus years. She doesn’t change things often and thinking that she might, is a bit...

Another Day, Another Move

So much going on in my life recently I wanted to share an update for anyone who still reads this blog. First of all, we are moving. Goodbye Japan, Hello Germany. We got transferred to the Europe division which means Germany will be our new home. For now. I don’t know about you but I am not a material person. One thing I absolutely love about moving is purging. One thing I have learned in my life is transition and I do it pretty...

Wake Up and Be Awesome *Explicit

From this day forth, your goal should be the most f#cking awesome person you can imagine being. Sadly, there are many who go about living day by day more asleep than awake. So I am asking you now to wake up and be awesome. What’s great about being awesome is that it’s totally subjective to what you define as awesome. You don’t have to care about the ways I consider to be awesome and I don’t have to like yours.  Agree to disagree. The...
