My path to freedom and happiness.

I don't know how many people are in this same situation but I live with my parents. I love my mom, she's awesome, we're best friends. My dad, not so much. In the past he at least provided enough financially (covering 3 people, 1 who eats enough for at least 2 people and our pets) but now thanks to him passing up a job that could've led to making $100,000 a year for a job, his current job is making cutbacks on hours to the point where we'll have to find a way to cut $700-$800 out of our budget....more

The gift of free time

I am always struck, every time I spend any time in the company of school kids, by how little initiative any of them have. And I'm talking good kids here. Middle class, socio-economically speaking (though some are more privileged than that), good stable families, living in a good city with all kinds of opportunities, attending what are considered good schools and doing well there.Everyone agrees they're great kids. But put them in an unstructured environment and they do not know what to do. Literally. They sit around waiting for you, the Adult in Charge, to tell them what to do....more

Are You Free?

Are you free?  It is the 4th of July weekend, time to celebrate our country's freedom and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  We are privileged with more freedom than most people  in the world.   The question is, what do we do with our freedom?...more

Come on Let's Celebrate

I still remember...the pre-dusk picnic with all our favorite foods. I would explore with friends the nearby woods and anticipate what would happen after darkness descended. The warmth of the day continued into the night. Then the blankets would come out, we'd sit on the ground and the show would begin. It's Independence Day and the nation celebrates. The oohs and aahs became the words of the evening as the night lit up with the lights of fireworks....more

A Really Long Downhill Toward Freedom

Ben gave me a 20-week Fitness Challenge which will take us right through summer and hopefully become so habit forming that we never stop doing a little something every day that is good for us. Together, we have walked and ridden bikes and even tried a little running. We are building up our hearts and lungs with longer walks to get ready for even more running. We live in the country and have endless paths to walk or ride in every direction with lovely views all around. ...more

The illusion of freedom

What if you lived in a world where you could do anything? Be anything? Have anything? Have any expecince Amy human being is capable of having? Even this girls only for these contestants I'm sire other wise why the hell not? See my world is full of steveness and I don't play by those limits on which mostly people live in and wrongly believe is real. None of it is its mapped in our heads that way but ultimately it's up to you to decide. When you can start to realize how much you can learn to make choices. You can start to wake up take ur power back and begin to wake up....more
