Tonight I Want To Get Real About Stalking!

Do Not Miss this powerful and encouraging Post from Nikki


It has been months since I have brought up the topic of stalking and have mentioned it in detail in a prior blog post when I first started my blog.

Tonight, I have realized stalking comes in many forms and I want to reach out and spread the word. First and foremost always trust your gut if I can stress anything ALWAYS trust your intuition….trust your gut if warning alarms go off about someone or if something feels off or strange or somewhat scary it is your body warning you! Listen to it! I wish I had! Had I listened I may not have gone through 13 years of hell being cyber stalked by someone whom I trusted and truly cared about. Trust me those alarms went off loud and clear and I choose to disregard them…If interested go down to my blog in its early stages and read my…

The Old School


school house

Many a sunrise has shone
upon this place of learning
a majestic old girl
of brick and mortar,
she opens her wooden arms wide
each morning
as smiling children
run into her embrace,
march up and down
three flights of
double wide stairs,
run their sticky hands
along polished banisters,
voices hushed by the teacher,
footsteps the only echo
until giggles and shouts
trail out double wide doors
as the bell rings goodbye
just as it has done
for one hundred six years on the
corner of Dufferin and 1st Avenue.

Coffee to the Rescue – Daily Quote

Jo Hawk


Spring allergies have hit. Stuffy head, red watery eyes, sneezing, and sinus pressure takes their toll when you are running full speed ahead. While allergy medication can relieve the pressure and ease congestion, it messes with my ability to concentrate and form coherent thoughts. My mind starts swirling, dreaming up countless improbable conjectures. Although none of the symptoms align, you wonder if you have coronavirus. It is crazy, reactionary thinking not supported by facts. Experience says sleep will help.

Ah, sweet sleep. It is a commodity as rare as toilet paper these days. We, humans, are hardwired to worry in the dark of night. We spend hours staring at the ceiling, tossing, turning, and entertaining concerns about the lack of shut-eye. The spinning wheels make matters worse. Sleeping during the daytime is a luxury I cannot afford. Coping mechanism number two is multiple cups of coffee. My hot brew helps…

Be Patient Toward All that is Unsolved in Your Heart #RainerMariaRilke #Inspiration #Healing #Journey

Poems for Warriors


“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves… Live the questions now. Perhaps you will gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” —Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Wow! This quote is powerful.

It is about the process of healing your heart, soul and body. It is about being curious to your feelings, your thoughts, your sensations and following those different signals on the path to wholeness. This type of curiosity can be fueled through counseling or psychotherapy.

What a beautiful idea!
