My pledge to love

This is my pledge…

I will trust you enough to tell you the truth as I know it in any given moment.

I won’t disappear without a word. If I need space or time, I will tell you.

Lady parts

Last week I saw an image on Facebook that struck me as both hilarious and absolutely on-point:

While I generally stay out of politics on Facebook, this one made me laugh so hard that I shared it with my friends.

The Leah Carey I know isn’t rude

While I was working, I turned on some music and started singing along.  I was so focused …

The miracle of choosing to respect myself

In the wake of the emotional turmoil of the last couple of days I’ve been doing a lot of processing.  A lot of it hasn’t been pretty.  But some things about my past behavior have become clear to me and I’m grateful because it means that I can choose new behavior in the future.  As …

The miracle of Glee

I’ve made occasional references to Glee in the past, but tonight it gets a post all its own.

The miracle of self-respect

This evening I had a sneak peek into my own sense of self-respect and I’m happy to report that I’m pleased with what I saw! 🙂

The miracle of letting go of the past

So much has happened in the last 24 hours that I think I could write a mini-novel instead of a blog entry.  Here’s the Cliff Notes version.  🙂

For me, realizations of growth and change always feel like a miracle and it makes me happy to chronicle them for myself.  However, recently I’ve become aware …
