Amber Alert

Were They Out There?

Were they out there?

I stared out the window, not thinking or caring about all the traffic rushing up and down the street.  I couldn't see anything, but I felt . . . something.  It was weird to think of a person stalking you, wanting to hurt you, or kill you for no reason other than that they didn't like you.  It was crazy.

I felt more than just fear.  I was filled with curiosity and anger and other hateful emotions.  The idea of prey and hunter intrigued me.  What would they do if I became the stalker?  If I tried to turn the tables on that creep?

Not that I would do anything like that, I thought regretfully.

I couldn't be expected not to fight back, could I?

Yes, they were watching.  I could feel it.  They were close and getting closer.  I would be forced to confront them soon.

Thought of the Day - 4/1/14

You can never go to far for the ones you love.

Thought of the Day - 3/31/14

BE the change you want to see. Love fearlessly and without limits. No act of love or kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. The best part of life is not just surviving, but thriving with passion, compassion, humor, generosity, and kindness, and using these tools to improve the lives of those around you. Smile, and help others smile too.

Thought of the Day - 3/30/14

Death is a real challenge of life. It tells us not to waste time. It tells us to make time right now to tell each other that we love each other. It tells us to stop texting and tweeting every second and actually open the floodgates to real, long, heartfelt conversations with the people we love. Relationships flourish when two people are able to share their innermost feelings and thoughts about themselves and each other. To be fully heard by someone, in raw form, and be adored anyhow, is what true love is. Making time for these deep connections and conversations is worth it.

Thought of the Day - 3/29/14

Your life is a reflection of what you believe. If you really believe something or someone can stop you, it can and it will. But you already know that. What you may not know is that what you tell yourself about yourself, about your life, about your limitations, you will believe. What you believe is the foundation of what you do and don't do.

Thought of the Day - 3/25/14


Late at night is when I think
And try to I clear my head
I often stay awake all night
Just laying in my bed

As soon as I get comfy
Thoughts start racing in
I start to question everything
and regret my every sin

At first the thoughts are gentle
Like what will I do tomorrow
But as time crawls by; they escalate
Till I'm drowning in my sorrow

I think of all my failures
Every detail of what I did wrong
After hours of reliving pain
I convince myself I don't belong

I suddenly feel isolated
and like the silence will never end
I feel like I will never escape
There's too much I just can't mend

I feel overpowered and worthless
Like I'll never do anything right
I hide till the world fades away
And I'm awoken by the light

I realize a new day has come
It's time to put on a brave face
I put those negative thoughts away
Until I return to this place

Thought of the Day - 3/24/14

Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.
~~ Kahlil Gibran ~~ 

Thought of the Day - 3/23/14

These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.

Thought of the Day - 3/22/14

People shouldn't have to earn kindness. They should have to earn cruelty.
