I have loved professional wrestling for as long as I can remember. Since the days of Saturday programming where I dreamed of being like Sunny, but with the capability to kick someone’s ass for real. My first heartbreak came at the hands of Hulk Hogan, long before he made the most awkward sex tape ever, and got himself banned from…

As a thirty-five-year-old woman striving to live with the integrity of a disney princess, I can no longer look around and wait for the adult in the room to step forward when someone is looking for them.I am supposed to be an adult. I have to actually adult. For someone who takes on responsibility like a martyr in a zombie…

August is Coming.

August is Coming.

      The Energy in the Universe right now is insane. Have you felt it? This heavy feeling I keep trying to wipe away. I feel like Ricky Bobby from Talladega Nights when he thinks he is on fire. “HELP ME JESUS, HELP ME JEWISH GOD, HELP ME ALLAH, HELP ME TOM CRUISE, USE YOUR WITCHCRAFT ON ME TO…

Walking outside today is like being inside a real-life storybook. I was reminded of that feeling I would get as a little girl on a perfect blue sky day. That feeling that you are just a small charcter in a story written by God. A beautiful human being walking around in this marvelous setting he created. I love these days. Spring…

You’re Pretty.

You’re Pretty.

I can’t understand the attack on Princesses in our modern girl raising times. I get that we want our girls to grow into strong, smart capable woman. What I don’t get is how princess became a bad word at the same time. Watching the Disney princesses evolve from Cinderella to Moana has been one of my greatest joys. It is…

Hey Kid I’ll Bring the Ice Cream.

Hey Kid I’ll Bring the Ice Cream.

I listen to Wayne Dyer, Rumi, Ram Das, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Anne Lamott most recently. The one thing all these teachers have drilled into my head is that you have to heal something referred to as the inner child. I get how lame that sounds. I grew up in the early nineties for god sake. The cabinets got smaller…

Your Heart is Three Dimensional and Other A-ha Moments.

Your Heart is Three Dimensional and Other A-ha Moments.

Remnants of motherhood are scattered around my cream “Debbie Does Dallas” leather sofa. Don’t judge me too harshly, it was the floor model and more than half the price of the chocolate one I wanted. A Biddy Baby American girl doll named Rachel, whose black painted on hair is scratched and worn with the love I hoped for her as…

Winter

Winter

I took a season off from blogging , because I was waiting for what my new normal would bring, and I’m not into expressing my melancholy and struggles in such an open forum. My growth never comes from expelling all that raw, fiery emotion to anyone but my physical journal. Winter is here, and after a contemplative and productive Fall I feel stable…

Fight for the Fairy Tale

Fight for the Fairy Tale

My house is untidy. I want to say disgusting, but I’m doing this new thing where I try really hard to not apply my perfectionist standards to everything. So the word disgusting really does not apply here.  There is no ring of soap scum on my shower, and the kitchen floor was mopped yesterday by a very handsome man with…

Learn To Stay

Learn To Stay

I am practicing this concept I heard on a Pema Chodran book I recently finished listening to. Learn to Stay. For about a year now I have been losing a relationship that was a major piece of my history. For months the wound is still so fresh that when I think about it I feel pulsating aches from my stomach…

Simply Become Who You Are.

Simply Become Who You Are.

I live in a metaphorical battle. A story happening deep on the inside of who I am fit for a science fiction novel.  A power shift is about to go down in here, and every day I  am aware of this mystical crusade going on between the last bits of what society considers normal vs the eccentric nut job who…

Parenting, the Days are Long the Years are Short.

Parenting, the Days are Long the Years are Short.

I  sit in the middle of perfect chaos and beg to tuck all of it away in my mind. Nestle  it quickly into the crevices of my soul so I will never forget. I never want to forget these days of following after a toddler monster through the halls of the children’s museum. Breathless, and nervous that he will crash…

Be F**king Kind to Each Other

Be F**king Kind to Each Other

**This post is in no way meant to victim blame. Rape is never the victims fault. This post is simply meant to be awareness that as a society we are not doing enough in the prevention column. Before I reached my thirteenth birthday there were a few things I knew about going to parties from my Parents. Dad: “Never take…

Feeling Bad About Feeling Bad.

Feeling Bad About Feeling Bad.

One of the hardest things for me to contend with is allowing myself to feel my feelings. Before accupuncture I was doing a wonderful job of not even realizing what I was feeling. I learned to shut myself completely off from feeling any emotions. As a thirteen-year-old I was quick to feel things. I was even voted most emotional in my…

Needles and Bird Feeders

Here is part two in my Spirit Awakens series. If you need to catch up on the first part of this story just click here. So after my nothing is in your face Mrs. Areal cat scan results I decided to go to acupuncture. Acupuncture sounded much better to me than sitting in an MRI for an hour. I’m not…

The Spirit Awakens

The Spirit Awakens

This post is the first in a series. The story is long and ongoing, but I felt compelled today to start to share it. Before we start I want to share a few things about my spirituality with you. I believe in God. However, I do not believe in one religion to channel his presence. I like to call him a…

WCW: Mae

WCW: Mae

  I woke up this morning thirty minutes later than usual. On days where the Hubbs heads into Boston for work that means there is no time to lay in bed and say my prayers before heading out for my morning walk. Today I had to shoot out of bed and lace up my need to be replaced sneakers and hit the…

Middle Child

Middle Child

Today I felt like a bad Mother. Not for the  typical reasons one might think a stay at home mom would think she is a bad mother. I was a badass stay at home mother today;I baked muffins, made an obstacle course, snuggled up and watched Bubble Guppies, had a lively dance party that included twirling ,and put a ream…

Cincinatti Zoo Tragedy

Cincinatti Zoo Tragedy

 A devastating accident caused the death of a Gorilla named Harambee at the Cincinnati zoo this weekend.  A curious four-year-old found a way to get into the gorilla enclosure.  He got himself dragged around by a 400-pound gorilla, and got the gorilla killed. Everyone seems to have an opinion about who is to blame. The zoo for not having the enclosure…

What to Read This Summer.

What to Read This Summer.

I know Spring just got here for us East Coasters, but as I sit on my back porch apricating, baby monitor by my side I feel inspired to share some easy, entertaining summer reads. Gillian Flynn: Gillian Flynn is the kind of author who gives me story envy . She is hands down my favorite thriller writer of all time. Every…
