The problem with growth is it can be painful af.
Today is a day many of us count our blessings, and I for one have many.
Happy birthday to me! I am 50+ years young. It’s not that I’m ashamed of my age, but I probably shouldn’t give away my DOB here. I’m actually proud how long I’ve lasted; a lot of chronically depressed people don’t make it this far. This is the first birthday I can recall not being depressed. […]
Seven years ago I started this blog. That’s the longest I’ve stuck with anything. I had hoped to monetize it to support my animal rescue habit. Things didn’t quite work out that way. Instead I found an avenue of expression that I enjoyed and was pretty good at, if I do say so myself. The best […]
In today’s Facebook feed I spotted a post from a friend (?) stating said she’s not taking her old friends with her into 2018, because she’s #movingon #growth #onwardupward. That stung.

I read this very interesting article last night about true fans, and how just having 1000 can see you through. Then after reading the article, I went to see how Rumpy was doing in the World Spay Day Pet Pageant. (Don’t forget to vote today!) And that’s when I had the ‘A-ha!’ moment. I don’t […]
Thanks so much Kevin, Shiro, and Mom!
