I'm Sorry; My Apologies; Your Forgiveness, Please!

When "I'm sorry" just isn't enough, 
can't be said, 
or doesn't matter - 
regardless of how much sorrow is felt, 
regret is compounded, 
nor wish for forgiveness craved.

Don't Worry! It's All Out of Control!

        Well hello, again!  Still with me, hmm?  Here we are at Week 30 of my personal challenge and I dare say there might be a few of you actually still following along!  Would be lovely if the weeks we are following actually fit the weeks of the year, but in a way, this perfectly illustrates how imperfect people can still do something decent, yet not in the prescribed rules of the... thingy.

Facing Change and Facing Toward Change

"Not everything that is faced can be changed,
but nothing can be changed unless it is faced."

~  James Baldwin

Is there something you need to face?

Mystical Monsters of Mental Mayhem

Did you ever fear the monsters under your bed, or in your closet?  
Imagine them peering from the dark, watching your every, sleeping breath?  
Stare into the darkness, trying to make out their shapes 
from those of the rest of the things in there?
Um...neither did I.
Ahem.

Oh, to Be Free, to Be Free to Be Me!

        If I had begun these "Motivational Mondays" posts the very first week of the year, this week's quote and question, so generously provided by Christine Morgan in her book of that name, would have fallen right around a time when it was a particularly perfectly-timed post (ah...love alliteration)!  Oddly enough, life doesn't always run so perfectly smooth, so we do the best we can with what we have.

        Actually, that's pretty much the point of this blog...so perhaps it was a perfect example, after all. ;)
