November 17, 2019 It’s 9:15 on a Sunday morning. As I sit in our break room listening to the low drone of the vending machine waiting for my shift to start, I contemplate. I think back to everything that transpired over the last 60 days. **Continuation of writing. Fast forward from my previous writing and it is now … Continue reading Moving forward …It is what it is.
36 Inches of space by Suzanne Allen November 3, 2019 It’s the beginning of a new month. It’s been a few months since I last wrote anything significant about my life. The picture attached to this article is the 36 inches of space allocated to my personal belongings while I stay with my mother and … Continue reading 36 Inches of space
Drive by SE Allen Road winding or straight. Destination unknown. Early or late. A chance with each trip. Things to do. A hit or a miss. Feel, success or miserable. In your control. Time is the variable. Path in the distance. Takes time. Stay persistent. We came and we saw. The trip ends. Nothing will … Continue reading “Drive” by Suzanne Allen
It’s October 1, 2019. Yesterday, I finally closed another chapter in my life. I moved out of the home we had for the last three years. The home my ex-husband rented about 7 months before he passed away. I made a promise to my two youngest kids to stay in the house until they graduated … Continue reading Positivity
August 11, 2019 I started this post August 11th. Today is August 28th and so much has transpired in a short 17 days. It's hard to step back from the emotions and separate it into short, easy pieces to digest. I will try. I originally made a statement at the end of a post titled … Continue reading Momentum
August 18, 2019 Hello. I woke up. I wasn't feeling that good. Thoughts about my ex-husband. I miss our Sunday mornings. That's in the past. Not to be revisited again. I went on to social media. Spent only a few minutes. Felt kind of bored. No text message this morning. Felt alone. Listened to my … Continue reading Day 1 – Morning Pages
August 18, 2019 I recently started this audio book called "168 Hours" by Laura Vauderkam. I was looking at my own hours of the day and how I spent it. The thoughts actually came up while I was binge watching another television series on a weeknight. Hours wasted to something that doesn't change anything for … Continue reading Creating and expression of thought – Boosting creativity
August 11, 2019 **I wrote this February 12th, 2018. Two days later the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida occurred. I never posted it. In light of recent events it still reflects the same feelings. The conversation and narrative that should be occurring. We as human beings have the inalienable rights … Continue reading Others and Some
August 11, 2019 I was still upset when I woke up Saturday morning. Sleep didn’t help the thoughts. I was having a good week until about 4 pm Friday. I don’t get it. I try to be this helpful, kind, good person to everyone I meet. I go to work and do the job I’m … Continue reading Growth
7/15/19 It’s after 2 pm on a Monday. On a lunch break from a slow work day. Generating numbers and closing out the last year’s work. Rather mundane and boring at times. Had lots of time to think about my current situation in life and reflect on recent reactions. I’m 48 years old. I think … Continue reading Time doesn’t always heal all wounds.
July 13, 2019 It is a Saturday night. As I sit here on my laptop working on creating a second blog solely dedicated to cake decorating and sugar art, I also decided to create a secondary Instagram page to link to. This has been an ongoing process on and off since last year. Several formats … Continue reading Goal, plans, and aspirations
July 4, 2019 I know this commentary may not sit well with most that choose to read it so please bear with me a moment. It’s Independence Day here in the United States and it is still a relatively new country compared to the rest of the world only declaring independence 243 years ago. Yet, … Continue reading Independence Day – Defining America
June 20, 2019 I grew up being a “tomboy”. I had two sisters that I did not know until I was about 9 years old. I played with and learned from my boy cousins. They were the brothers I never got to have. I loved them more than anything, they kept me safe. So instead … Continue reading Is it Competitive or being a Bully? – Self observation
June 16, 2019 I’m 48 years old. That’s weird for me to say and hear. When I was a kid, I didn’t believe that I would still be alive in the year 2020. Now here it is 2019 and in less than 6 months it will be 2020. So many changes and pain to have … Continue reading True Blue – Closing a chapter.
June 15, 2019 It’s June 15th, today is my oldest child’s birthday. I look at my kids and I remember the hope that I felt when I had them. Hope that I was raising individuals that would change the world. There is still time to see if that comes true or not. I help to … Continue reading Time for change – Observations on society
