I did a photo shoot and created this little web ad for my friend, Katrina at Sugarcomb. You should go see her. Ask her about her Facebook special this week! You will be happy you did!

"Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were."
I saw this quote and it really resonated with me. I've been witness to some pretty horrible behavior over the last month and it was hard for me not to be angry with the person responsible. When you see someone you care about being put through the ringer by someone who is clearly suffering from some kind of mental disorder, all you want to do is grab them and shake them and ask them, "Why are you so very crazy? Can't you see what you are doing here?"
But the reality is, arguing with the crazy people of the world will only leave you frustrated. The truly messed up will never realize that they have only themselves to blame for their own problems no matter how many fingers they point.

On my drive home from work today, I was stuck in traffic, watching the light in front of my car changing again and again, moving approximately one car space forward at every interval. I started thinking how familiar this felt to me. I realized there are huge spans of time in my past where my life felt exactly like this.
It is only when I’m carving my own path, choosing my own roads, and not following someone else’s ideas of who/what I should be or be doing, that I don’t feel like I am at a standstill. I am not waiting on some outside influence to tell me when it is OK to move forward.
I love being my own person. I will never take that for granted again.
