About

This blog is a work in progress.  I started it in May of 2012 when I was going through a very hard time in my marriage.  I had decided that I was “Tired of Feeling Bad.” And I felt bad alot.

It felt like I had two sides of life.  On the left, everything just looked bleak.  I had no energy, hope or future.  I literally just wanted to escape by sleeping.  But I didn’t know how to make it go away.  The more I resisted it, the worse it got.  And pretty soon I was feeling bad about feeling bad.  And then I really felt stuck.

This is my quest to learn how to get back to the right side quicker and without as much effort.  On the right side, everything is wonderful.  Life is fun, happy, full of possibility.  I have more energy then I know what to do with.  My face hurts from smiling.

Seeing that there was such a discrepancy between the two sides of life, I started trying to figure out ways to get myself out of the pits of the left and back over to the happy right. Sometimes it worked, and sometimes I was still stuck.

I experimented with different techniques, incorporated what I read, and what I learned at seminars.  I stayed hungry to figure it out and even wrote a memoire about my struggle.   And, because it helped me to work things out in writing, I started this blog not really knowing what one was.

This blog is not very polished.  Recently I went back and read my earlier entries.  I was a complaining, raving lunatic and usually very upset. I cringe at the thought of someone reading them.  Hopefully my latest batch of posts is not as painful for people to read, more current for me, and better written.

I caution you.  I am writing from my inside.  Not spinning what I’m saying to make myself look good.  As a matter of fact, this does not make me look very good.  But, I can tell you this.  It is authentic and from the heart.  And if it helps one  person spend less time on the left side, then my efforts have been worthwhile.

Again, I have not edited these as much as I should have and I will apologize if I have offended anyone in advance.

Thanks for checking in and please comment if you are compelled to do so.  Happy Reading.   Updated 4-4-17

      Thank you Anne. It’s taken me a while to figure out how to respond. I wrote the About after you commented. Thank you very much.
