In life, we all have different lessons to learn – for different reasons. Life is in the experiences, and with these comes both good and bad things, both flow and obstacles. Do you ever ask yourself, “Why do this keep happening to me?” after similar things seem to constantly go wrong? Be it love, your…
Our happiness is and always will be up to ourselves. Life may take us through good times and bad times, and our plate will at times be filled with nothing but trouble and torment. But the primary cause to you feeling unhappy has less to do with any situation or person served to you and…
“Being a fighter can be exhausting. Being a survivor can take its toll on you.”… I reblogged this post because though we do not realize it, it can happen for any reason to any one of us as I myself learned in 2007.
What a beautiful day yesterday was. Weather was on par; brisk in the morning, warming glow of the afternoon sun. I was knitting as we watched the latest installment of “The Walking Dead.” My arm was bothering me, so I put the needles down to check my emails. And that was when I saw it.
A levy had been placed on my account by the IRS. Every last dime was gone. All of the money I had been saving for my teeth, all of our household expenses, all the money set aside to buy yarn and pay for shipping, all of my savings, every last cent confiscated by the IRS. Everything was gone.
I was panicky, shaking, started crying, and muttering to myself “It’s happening again. I’m going to be homeless again.” over and over, and then swiftly moved into such a state I had never seen myself in before…

I didn’t sign up for adulthood, I want a refund!
This unwelcome visitor
eventually comes calling;
with a truckload of aches
and wrinkles it’s hauling.

memories soon will fade.
Chronic pain is no ‘guest’.
Arthritis, we must wade.
Delivered with punctuality;
or indiscriminate neutrality.
Wisdom comes at a cost;
independence will be lost.
The only condition worse
than the ravages of age;
is when the ‘book of life’
has ran out of new pages.
