Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge. ~ Eckert Tolle


In my happy place today…

I’m beyond excited that some of my family and friends are arriving Tuesday night. I can’t wait to share my piece of paradise and my new life with them.

I moved my entire life down to Florida in September, I’ve flown up north, during winter (ugh!) 4 times for different events, because I promised my children and grandchildren that are still living there that I would show up for as much as life allowed.

I miss my family and my friends in New England… but a woman needed to do what she needed to do to break free and survive.

My happy place is in my kitchen cooking and preparing for my most special people.  I’m listening to country music (one good thing that came out of the worst break up of my life, 24/7 I’m listening) blasting it in my beautiful condo, I’m dancing 💃🏼 , singing and cooking, I just realized I haven’t felt this happy in a very long time!

Ooo and when I clean up the kitchen blowup, because that’s how I cook, I’m slipping on my bikini 👙 and heading to the pool for my 2nd happy place,  Vitamin D!!!

Don’t hate, recreate! 

I am Grateful….

I am grateful, God, for all you have given me, and ALL you have taken away. Thank you for the soundness of mind, the will to live and the desire to continue growing along spiritual lines. Thank you for relieving me of the bondage of self and of others, for taking away the pain and the suffering. I am grateful God that my faith in you allows me to live without fear today. Thank you for the self confidence and sense of well being. And thank you dear God, for making it possible for me to feel this way right now. I am faith-filled, fearless and free!


When Love Is a Lie


When Love Is a Lie

He’ll berate, belittle, insult, and destroy you….
Deceive, devalue, idolize, and ignore you…
He’ll block you then stalk you,
‘til you do what he taught you
His prize for The Lie is a chance to discard you

He’ll seduce and betray, confuse and neglect you
Without a single regret, he intends to infect you
In the blink of an eye, he’ll all but erase you
His venomous words are meant to disgrace you
He buried your soul down a dark rabbit hole
And planned your demise from the moment he met you

So, what do you feel? Do you know why you cry?
Is it fear that consumes us when love is a lie?
Is it hard to let go if it’s all that we know?
If the bad that he is, is as good as it gets
We must look to our heart for it’s time to reflect
Make him fade into black from the fear of attack
I am you, you are me, & we’ll never be back
Bitter and broken, on the wind it was spoken
From a dream, we’ve awoken
From a dream, we’ve awoken
