My Mom's Tale: If Things Were Different
Have you ever taken a tragedy of your life and daydreamed about how it could have been different? I'm about to do just that because these are the "what ifs" that lurk in my thoughts and inject me with the venom of guilt. These are the thoughts that keep me up at night. What could I have done differently that day?
I Used to Care but Now I Don't.
“I used to care but now I don't.” That seems to be a relatively new challenge on TikTok. Now I don't exactly use TikTok, but I do scroll through the Facebook Shorts frequently and I've seen a few videos of it. And you know what?
Beautiful, Unique, Red Head
Growing up with red hair automatically made me an outcast. It made me a target for mockery and the butt of seemingly endless jokes. In school, I had to withstand many of the infamous nicknames for redheads. "Carrot Top", "Redheaded stepchild", and later in teenage years, "FireCrotch". On a couple of occasions, I had to deal with a couple of rude guys asking if the "carpet matched the drapes". Let's face it. Us Redheads don't have it easy.
Beauty and the Narcissist
I'm about to tell you a story. A true story. A scandalous one at that. Because I am a good person I shall change the names of the characters and give them their dignity even if they don't deserve it.
ADHD and How I.. SQUIRREL!
I sit here beginning to write this article when in all honesty I should be doing housework. I look around at the mess. Dirty clothes are strewn about the floor. Piles of random junk. Things are completely out of place. There's no organization whatsoever. Yet, I seem to know where things are. My organized chaos. I feel as though it's an outward projection of my mind. Chaotic but still functional. The joys of ADHD.
My heart was above the clouds soaring gracefully like a dove. But then you shot it down By ripping away your love. Spiraling to the earth like a falling star, breaking apart and burning, The pieces of my heart.
I sit here everyday asking myself "Why?" Why did you go and do this? Why did you break my heart? You promised me forever
Two Pink Lines Taken Away
You never think it will happen to you. It's not even a thought in your mind. You look down and see those two pink lines or that digital "pregnant" on the screen. You are filled with so much joy and it's all you can think about. Your mind goes straight to picking names, nursery plans, cute clothes, and all the good and beautiful things that happen when expecting a baby. You're over the moon and you've lost sight of Earth and all of its problems. You feel like nothing could bring you down because you're about to have the baby you've been trying for.
