Before I Fall Asleep

I must be getting old, but I don’t feel I’m going to make it until midnight. So, I decided before I awake to 2014 I would post one more time, making this my 150th post. I like even numbers. I can’t believe it’s only been two months since I began this blog. I have discovered so much about myself, met some amazing people, and realized I’m pretty good at some things!

It amazes me that I have over 260 followers, okay, that is insane. I have also had 4,829 hits on my site. Wow. I truly wondered who in the world would read anything on this blog when I started. I guess it’s going well so far! I hope to improve both in my writing and photography in the coming year, maybe even be able to afford a better camera.

I am extremely tired, and needed to take my anxiety meds after speaking with my brother tonight…that is another blog post coming soon. I wanted to wish you all a Happy, Blessed, and Prosperous New Year! Yaaawn. Be safe tonight! Love, Peace and Hugs!

My Newest Painting Using “Fresh Paint” App

Ocean Scene


I absolutely love playing with this app. The “paints” act just like real oils, mixing colors, texture etc. The only thing is, I don’t know if I am “cheating” or if it is really a miracle that I can “paint” like this with a computer mouse. Either way it is fun!

Time To Move Forward Into My Future

My birthday is over, so is the disappointment and self-pity that came with it. I will continue on this journey of self-discovery and self-fulfillment that I began back in October. I will not let anyone decide my worth or affect my happiness. I am not going to do that to myself any longer. I am enough. I am good enough, though I plan on improving constantly, not for others, but for me.

I will keep writing and taking photographs. I will get out, make new friends, and explore new avenues in my life. I refuse to follow the path of so many others and just give up. Heck, it’s not in me to give up. No one survives all I have been through just to quit! I don’t know how much time the good Lord has for me on this Earth, but I will make the most of it. I will find my bliss, and I will help others to find their’s also. I will love. I will give of myself. I will discover new things about myself, and create the life I crave. I will be happy.

I will. I will. I will. It’s my turn. However, I won’t depend on anyone else for my happiness or for my worth. God decided my worth a long time ago, and who’s going to argue with Him? Not me.  I just need to decide who I am going to believe.

Until I can come up with a good enough topic for my next blog post, well, this is it for tonight. Love, peace, and hugs.

A New Day

Another night of very little sleep, but I feel well. I guess there are just so many changes going on in my life, some good, some not so good. Change is inevitable, and I accept that. I will keep moving forward and trust that God has a plan that is meant for my good. Wishing you all a blessed and prosperous day. Be happy…it’s a choice.

Good Morning

Too Tired to Title

I messed up and took my sleep meds way too early last night, then woke at midnight and could not get back to sleep. I got quite a bit accomplished today, and it is just after 2pm. I did manage to take a photo jaunt, but with over 80 photos to cull and edit, I am just too tired to post them yet. I am going to sleep now, and will probably be up all night editing photos, and writing a blog post…we’ll see. I leave you with a couple of photos from this morning. Click any photo for slide show viewing! Hugs all!

The Sea Gulls were very cooperative this morning…more photos later!
