“There are no accidents”

This seems very cut and dry doesn’t it? That the control you have over your life is everything in the world, no one else controls the destiny of your life but YOU. Many will look at that and think “why, yes, I agree” and most of the time I am with them, nodding in agreement. Until it comes to my…

** I wrote this post almost two weeks ago, but was in a desperately dark place. Posting it didn’t, at that time, seem appropriate** I find my self being very angry tonight. Why? Because my boyfriend gave blood at a donation drive. I sat there and watch that guy sit through donation for a very selfless reason: Me. I can’t…

Belief. I can’t quite believe that this is me, almost two years ago. Its relevance to the present? I feel as if nothing has changed. This was August 2010. It is now May 2012. I’m older. I’m wiser. But I still feel like the same person. I look at that body and I see nothing different. My curves have come…
