I’m Talking to You!

see-lonely-sad-painI’m not sure where I am going with this post – I just know it needs to be said. There are random times in my life where I just get this feeling or this sense, and today is one of those days. Maybe it’s in my head, maybe it is not. But I feel I need to say it.

There are times where you get into your day and think: “I can’t. I’m done. This just isn’t going to happen.”

To you I say: “You can, you aren’t and it will!”

It tends to feel like when we need someone, they are not there. You are left to fight your battle alone.

Obviously you are alone in that moment, as you are the only one in the room.

But you are not alone, you do not have to fight alone and you do not have to survive alone.

When you are at the lowest point, the hardest moment or the toughest decision, reach out your hand and ask for help. Ask for support. The one thing I have learned the hard way this last year is when you are at your lowest point, or darkest corner, that is when you will really find the people who care. No matter how dark your corner, or how low your point, someone is always there. Someone loves you. Someone wants to see your smile on your face the next day. Someone looks up to you. Someone can’t wait to see you.

Regardless if you are just having a bad day, a bad year, or life just doesn’t seem to get better, remember “You can succeed, you aren’t alone and it will get better!”
I believe in you and all you can accomplish!


If you are thinking you need additional help that friends and family can not provide, you can always call the HELP line at 1 (800) 273-8255.

Why? Why? Why? But…why?


We all have those moments where we wonder why something is the way it is. What are some things that you ponder throughout the day, and never have found the answer to?

Mine include:

Why is there dust?
How does the washer make holes in my clothes?
Where do my socks go in the dryer?
Why is it liquor before beer you are in the clear, and beer before liquor makes you sicker? Always baffled me.
Why do dogs know exactly where to go the bathroom, but throw up only on nice things? Carpet, hardwood floor, company’s feet…
Why do the amazing people in our lives die young, and killers live to old age on death row?
Why do I get insomnia on Sunday nights?
Why does healthy food spoil quickly and cost money, when unhealthy food lasts forever and is cheap?
Why do I have to pay registration fees on a car? I already bought it. Done.
Who invented what side of the road to drive on?
Why do people clean their house before cleaning people come? Isn’t the point for them to clean?
Why aren’t there pizza flavored health shakes? Wouldn’t that make more sense?
Why is there writers block?
Why do people clean their cupboards when people come over? I personally have never opened a strangers cupboard. (Just the medicine cabinet to see if we are on the same meds).
Why do we have to grow up?

If you know the answer to any of these questions, please let me know. They have been on my mind for some time!

🙂 Hope your heart is smiling,
