I'm NOT The Strong Silent Type.

Silent types tend to be calm and logical, which is good for me because the man of my dreams can help me sort out my problems in a reasonable way.

Happy Halloween.

{A} Feeling Of Excitement.

Passion can grow as a relationship progresses. People used to think settling down meant saying goodbye to romance and passion. But research has found that young married couples are more satisfied in the romance department than their single counterparts are. Familiarity definitely has its perks. Couples who have been together for a long time have probably learned how to please each other and are more comfortable sharing their fantasies and desires to keep the romance alive.


This week has been one of the best weeks ever in a long while!
I finally figured out what I want to name my t-shirt line and have been working on the logo.
Yeah I know I'm holding it down.

Still {Me}

Perfectly Imperfect

Back on October 13, 1992 I was fighting for my life after becoming paralyzed from a car accident, I never would have thought that many years later I would be a successful teacher who believes in herself and makes a difference in the lives that she meets everyday!

My situation has led me to discover things about myself that I would not have before. I am proud not only of what my disability has taught me, but also of where it has taken me and whom I have met along the way. So much in my life is because of this injury. No, life isn't perfect, but it wasn't perfect before I used a wheelchair either! Over time I have come to realize... It wasn't me who changed... It was my perspective! Being a gal that uses a wheelchair has reminded me to appreciate the little things in life such as being able to get out of bed each morning and enjoy the fresh air. I have begun to realize, it is not what I do in life that matters. It is who I am inside that truly defines the real me.

Having said all of this, I didn't get here overnight. It took me a bunch of years to come to grips with the gravity of it all. It took a great support system of family and friends, a belief in myself, an ungodly number of margaritas and a deeply engrained sense of humor. All that I have going for me defuses the all-consuming desire to lash out, to find and affix blame. You don't need to walk to fall in love, to get married, have kids, get a degree, go to work or be a successful leader. Whatever you want to do, you don't need to walk to write, paint, take in a ballgame, go hunting, scuba diving, whatever.

Napoleon said, "struggle is a decided advantage, for it awakens within you attributes which would otherwise forever lie dormant."

walking is over-rated

Oh Joy 53 & 24.

And Happy Monday to You! Ok so over the weekend it was my dad's and my lil bro's birthdays. I really honestly thought that my dad's was Saturday, but it was Friday. But it's all good cuz I texted my lil bro to wish him a wonderful day, and he was like, "Damn, you guys are all the same!" Seems as though I was not the only sis that messed the dates up! LMFAO

Me [Today].

I've been traveling on this road too long, and a friend asked me the other day what I really wanted to do. I totally told him and he was like, yeah that is you + all your t-shirts jazz.
Does it really matter if I sleep or not? I really don't sleep much how it is anyways and when I have plans on the weekend they either fall though or are something that I totally would never ever go through again.
I guess I'm just trying to find my way back home where I can win that fight. You see the old me is dead and gone away. The gal that always wanted to go out to the clubs, drink and give out my number. Not me. Not me at all. Now I get it. That part of me left yesterday.
Ever had one of dem days u wish would've stayed home.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

My Creative Manifesto.

let go.

Good Words.

Ali Edwards: Eyes open. That is my goal. I want to live my life present and aware with my eyes wide open. Taking it all in. Day to day. Good and bad.
