Keep Climbing

“There’s a wall in front of you.
It’s tall, it towers over you.
You have to climb it.
In order for you to get to where you want, you have to get to the other side.
So start climbing.
You will fall, at some point.
It’s inevitable.
But does that mean you give up?
If someone drags you down, do you stay down?
No matter what, you climb.
And you do not stop until you are on the other side of that wall!
You do not quit.
Do you understand?
People will always try to stop you or distract you.
But you just keep climbing.
You don’t ever give up on reaching the other side of that wall!”

Cuppa Tea, Pet?

“I will destroy your happiness if it is the last thing I do!”

I have decided to cut down on caffeine. I am not cutting it out completely. So many changes this year – I hope I can stick with them! I already feel a positive difference by doing REDJanuary. I wake up most mornings excited and ready to see how many steps I can achieve. 2019 started off well, let’s keep going.



The amount of caffeine in an 8-ounce cup of tea prepared with one Tetley Decaffeinated tea bag is approximately 4 milligrams (99.6% caffeine free). The amount of caffeine in a similarly brewed 8-ounce cup of regular tea is between 40 and 50 milligrams.

Here We Are

It is over.

It is done.

I studied some business lately – I loved it. I had always wished to do it, never thought I would have the chance, the opportunity, or the brains…

Yet, here we are. I have my work in front of me. There is ‘excellent’ scribbled all over it, on almost every page.

I had wanted my own business, once.


So many dreams, so many roads.

Everything happens for a reason, right?

The dream I have been chasing may or may not be within my grasp. But there are other roads. I have doors that I can reach over and touch, should I choose to. I am not used to having doors.

I have said so many times these last few weeks how tired I am of fighting. I have been fighting my whole life for an education that was not given to me. For things to go wrong now, makes me feel tired. Makes me feel like laying down.

I am not a person who lies down.
