Remember Jesus: We’re all family

Post: 14 May 2016 So, I’m in a “conversation” with a guy on Facebook. It’s more like arguing. I remember him from a year ago and the memory is that he is antagonistic; he’s a cad; and he’s out to attack whomever he can just to get under their skin. I was commenting on a […]

How deep is the mud

I found this on Facebook. I thought an interesting perspective about life. I know I’ve been through my share of mud. My mud has not been any better or worse than others… Just different. Today… Right now I’m thankful for my mud. It’s made me… Me https://iammyownisland.wordpress.com/2016/04/23/how-deep-is-the-mud/

Let’s See That Smile

Here’s a little half-way thru the week humour.  As much as I react when I’m upset …. I don’t eat myself. I’ve definely got one up on the octopus. Next time someone mentions you being over dramatic think about this funny fact and enlighten your accuser with what truly over dramatic looks like, because […] […]

What We Don’t Want To Do

You’re flying down the freeway, three lanes of traffic jousting for position in anticipation of their upcoming off ramps. To your left, through  blur of grey cement guard rail and lightening-strike lampposts, three more lanes race away behind you to some unknown destination. The view to the right is no less disconcerting as a short, flimsy […]

Thinking of the past

I know when my mind is in overdrive I rehash every mistake I’ve ever made. I need to focus on where those mistakes have landed me… Molded me into the person I am today. I am a survivor of mental illness. I have taken on demons and won so far every day. I got this […]

This is me

I am all these things in one and possibly all in the same day lol though I don’t love my complexity… I’m learning to accept it. At least I feel that way today 🙂 https://iammyownisland.wordpress.com/2016/03/03/this-is-me/

Lost in Space

Habakkuk 1 2 O Lord, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save! 3 Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and […]

Music. Mood Swings. Me.

I obsess. It get’s pretty bad sometimes, where I will only talk about that subject, or at least mostly about the subject. Music, at least for right now, is that obsession. Writing about music is one of my favorite things to do, so I figured, why not incorporate it into a blog about bipolar disorder. […]

Across the street

There’s a house across the street. It was a jungle and a shack, abandoned and dismal. After a lot of work, a lot of trucks, and a lot of noise, it looks pretty. It’s been split inside for renting.  Trash still blows down our street and there’s still theft and the enduring sound of traffic.  […]
