I Am In Pain…So Here I Sit.

Two days before my father died, the priest at my parents’ church visited him in the hospital. My father asked a question, somewhat jokingly, somewhat seriously.

Do NOT Buy My Book

Yes, you read that right. Do NOT buy my book. Please don’t buy it. Not if you are buying my book to “support” me. That is not why I wrote this book and that is not the reason I want you to have it. I don’t want you to buy this book out of a…

Rock Bottom-Sharing My Most Shameful Secret With You

I have hidden this from everyone but my closest friends and family for 14 years. Today, I share it with you. Once again, I am terrified to hit “post”. I am so deeply ashamed of my behaviour that I can hardly believe you will know about it in a few minutes. But it is time.…

It is tragic because cancer SUCKS. And no one deserves it. No one. I have seen it ravage the bodies of friends and…

My MOST Embarrassing Moment

As I continue my mission of sharing myself with you, today I am divulging something I have kept from even my closest friends. I have held onto it for decades…almost 28 years, to be exact.

I’m Sorry.

Sometimes, you just have to DO IT. That thing that scares the crap out of you, that thing that pushes you and stretches you and keeps you awake at night….you’ve just got to DO IT. This is me. Right now. In my life. In so many instances, I have hidden behind the fear of rejection, judgment, and…
