In a noisy world, how often do we continue to explain ourselves, defend ourselves, speak so loudly, when our truth is in the ability to just be. 


Stop.  Just Be.


I am tired of hearing words.  People speak.  Loved ones speak.  I speak.


There are narratives around me, around us, everywhere.


And they keep speaking.  The voices are so loud.  The pictures, the snippets of life.  The words that mean only that I was able to come up with something snappy.  And I posted.  I wrote.  I called.  I blogged.


I hear and hear and hear and see.  You and me both.

To the children who struggle with any type of disability. 

To anyone who has ever struggled with anything… 

Yes, to you.

And me.


If Someone Gave Me The Chance


If someone gave me the chance

If someone saw me better than I can

If they were able to help me learn

Because I know I can…


If someone were able to give me a chance

I was at my networking group this morning.  If I haven’t talked about them before…  I am the president of a little group of 14 fabulous, quirky, interesting, feisty people who make my Wednesday mornings worthwhile.  And mostly because we’re this fabulously dysfunctional group who have known each other for too long.  But without them, I would feel as though my anchor in the ocean was gone.  I need to hear Brenda correct someone’s pronunciation of the word ‘realtor’.  I need to hear Maggie throw out a terrifying and freaking hysterical sexual innuendo that only 2 out of 5 people get.  I want to see Arnie’s shirt he wears every single week to make a point.  Someone made fun of the shirt, so he wears it each week in order to show the world he doesn’t care if they think he’s cool.  And I love him more for it.  But we knew he wasn’t cool.

It’s Saturday.  I have my chai tea latte.  I decided to go to the local coffee shop to stand in line for twenty minutes and by the “we’re making it” station for another ten minutes, pay $5 for the pleasure of it and go back home. 


Saturdays can be hard.  I miss my kids. They are with their dad, and I tend to get a little depressed.  Which if you’re divorced is one of the great wonders of parenting and divorce.  You miss your kids like crazy when they’re not there.  And you feel this deep depression, not like you can’t breathe, but like someone moved your cheese.  And you’ve lost your motivation to find it because you’ve decided to give up cheese.  The only reason you liked cheese was because you had children and adrenaline and narry a break in sight.

You know, I don’t write that often anymore.  Mostly because my message has changed, and I don’t know what it is yet.  So I become quiet because I am afraid I’ll share something inconsistent or strange or confusing.  But then, I realized, that’s probably part of the damn process.  My life has changed so much over the last few years, and it’s stayed the same too.  And in some fantastic ways, it has gone back to something I remember from long ago, something I missed about me.
