Popstar D (she has asked me to stop calling her Princess) and I watched “The Lady in Black” – a PG 13 ghost story, which was a bit scarier than I thought it would be, so I kept asking D if she was too scared. She kept saying no she was fine and together we giggled at the suspenseful bits. I also tried explaining how certain camera tricks were done to trip us out and she said she was having fun.

Forgiveness is something we often give willingly to the people in our life, but not to ourselves. I am bad for that. I will harbour and dwell on things I did as much as things I can’t control and let them eat away at my soul. It drains your energy, your trust and your ability to love freely.

In December of 2013 I gave up.
I gave up on anything that I had been dreaming of. Things important to me and my personal development. I did not in any way give up on my Mom Duties. No, I gave up on me and put all the effort into my Mom Duties as a way of coping with the fact that daily life was nothing like I had anticipated it would be. Continue reading
