Truth #1: My bravery concerning my fat body helps other women feel better about their own bodies. Every woman deserves to love her body. I help make that a reality. Truth #2: Continue reading

For a long time, I didn’t know I was unhappy. I had all the signs of someone who was chronically unhappy and I could not see it in myself. Then he left. He just came over one day, out of the blue, and broke off our 3 year engagement. When... Continue reading

First off, what is happiness? Is it just some random string of events that leads to a less miserable existence? Is it small things you do every day to cheer yourself up? Is it trying new things? Meeting new people? Making new friends? Is it owning more stuff or buying... Continue reading

At some point in growing as a person, you have to be brave and trust yourself. I went out and did that. Continue reading

I love when I plan things out, mostly because they never go according to my grand plans. All the pushing and pulling in the world isn't going to change what is meant to happen. For instance, I was falling behind on my bills since last September. I kept this very... Continue reading

Fatal character flaw #1: I used to be, and still have the tendency to be, a meddler. When you start meddling, you throw the universe out of balance. The universe will work things out. It always does. It's run pretty smooth for thousands of years without me meddling with things.... Continue reading

I am an expert carrier of things. I used to be a waitress, so I learned how to hold 20 plates at once and 4 drinks per hand without carrying them by the rim (and I have small hands so this is a wondrous feat). Somehow I always end up... Continue reading

Not totally dismissing the frantic nature of my last post, I decided to post something more calm and rational today to balance the unsettling display of irrationality from yesterday. My hair is naturally wavy. It could even be called curly, but I wouldn't call it that because it never curls... Continue reading

Sometimes I find myself pacing in the only space big enough in the place I reside to do any sort of pacing. I remember one night not too long ago (when I was also coincidentally high off my gourd) when I couldn't figure out what I was forgetting. I was... Continue reading

Do you know what happens when you deny yourself all the things you want? You get grumpy. Mr. Grumpy-bear! So I indulged today. I know I said I wouldn't do that after last weekend (too much Taco Bell and "stuff") but's just a 20 oz diet coke, a few... Continue reading

There are lots of people who are smarter than myself. I have never doubted this as fact. In particular, I've been meditating about the wise words of Lao-tse as quoted in The Te of Piglet by Benjamin Hoff. I have three treasures, Which I guard and keep. The first is... Continue reading

I think the Taoist analogy of a full cup is essentially correct. How can you learn anything if you already know everything? In this same way, if your cup is full, how can you put anything else in it? You must empty your cup, or at least clean some of... Continue reading

Wow. This is a truly amazing chance you had to meet such an artist. The pictures are wonderful and I will definitely have to look into his work. Thanks for sharing.

I've decided to give up video games. It seems like a trivial thing to write about, but it's a trivial activity. I thought it worth mentioning because it's such an odd thing for a 20-something-year-old to do. I never played video games much to begin with and was never very... Continue reading

A few times a year I clear out the clutter from my life. Physical clutter. I'm sure my room never gets as messy as some, probably because I'm completely OCD about cleaning. (Hence my being a cleaning lady) But the cleaning is a gift and a curse, as most things... Continue reading

Do you find it hard to empty thoughts and questions from your mind? You're supposed to do this as you meditate. Allow your mind to empty, but things rarely like to be put away in my mind. It's much easier to let my mind wander, which can sometimes lead to... Continue reading

What is devotion? I know from the practical sense it's dedication to something, usually a religious or spiritual practice. It's believing in something with all of your being. You can devote your life to helping starving children in third world countries...or you can save the world with Green Peace. I... Continue reading

As I've mentioned before, I'm a cleaning lady. I clean things for a living. This may seem like a perfectly innocuous means of making a living, but let me tell you something that is not commonly known: Not everyone has what it takes to clean. There's a fine art to... Continue reading

Here I sit, behind a second-hand desk with a box of tissues at the ready, with the beginnings of a new year. Happy 2011 everyone! The tissues are because I've had a cold for 2 weeks. I'm writing this blog out of some odd self-realization that I'm not a very... Continue reading
