Forgetting the past. It’s not easy to leave behind what we once lived, what we once loved or hated. People say to forgive and forget- but what they don’t quite express is how. In my head, I always give people the benefit of the doubt. That is my issue. Because even when someone has treated … Continue reading Sea of Memories
One. Two. One. Two. Left. Right. Left. Right. One foot in front of the other. Just keep going. Keep walking. You can do this. With each step, my knees plead to give out and my tear ducts release the dam that has been holding the flood back. Lately each day has been the same. Miserable. … Continue reading Loneliness

The head and heart are two peas in a pod. They are what dictate the way one lives their life, the choices a person makes, and the risks a person takes. Via the carotid artery, the myocardium sends blood to the brain at a rapid rate of three feet per second. When danger is sensed, … Continue reading It’s a start with the Head and the Heart
