Hello Me: From: Me

It's natural to second guess yourself.  Everyone can be a little insecure from time to time.  Some more than others, more often too.  How and when can we come to really love ourselves and find out who we are, accept our flaws, our humanity but constantly improve our personal bests!

How does this work?  How can we be happy with who we are?  No need to sit in a rut and hate how you look or feel.  You really can change it for the better. 

Now I don't know if today is just a good day or not, but I feel like today is one of those days I'm completely confident in myself.  I'm unique, I'm special, whether or not others recognize that.  I feel like I can do anything.  Why this sudden ecstacy?  It may be the fact I just got paid and I paid my bills and I still have money, that I have a new budget or even that my birthday is coming up.  But whatever it is, I feel good about it, better than I have in awhile.  I've really learned in the past month how important taking care of me is.  Not in a lonely, no one cares about me kind of pity way, but a, I need this I gonna do what I want kind of way.  I start to see in others what I once was.  I don't like being negative and down in the dumps but it happens to me ALOT.  I want to feel this good more often. I deserve to! And so do you!!! I've been searching for things that enlighten me and make me feel good, not in an escapist way, but a free, sense of self way!  Things are great up here! Ya'll should join me in the quest to self assurance.  Although I try to achieve approval from others, because face it, we see ourselves through our relationships and the people in our lives, but I know in my heart I'm good enough and loveable enough.  Look to the stars, say thanks, and be merry on your way.  Life is too short to whine. 

Today is a good day, and gosh darnit, I'm gonna make tomorrow one too.

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
