I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity. ~ Gilda Radner

It has been a very long time since I have written anything of any heartfelt substance because I have been lost inside a cloud of discontent and worry.  I am leaving my blog for awhile in search of direction. I want to thank the Sisterwives and The Reverie Journal for their love and acceptance. Thanks also to Helena Hann-Basquiat, Twindaddy, Sage Doyle, and The Ojanpera’s (and now that I am thinking about it the list is so long).  I am stronger because of all of you.

We never know if something is right or wrong but I feel like the only way to find out is to focus,make a decision, and give it everything you have.  I did that with this blog and I am pleased at what I accomplished.  I have made a new and very important decision and it will take all the strength I have to accomplish my goals.  You will see me pop up now and then here, and on other blogs so I hope you stick around but if not, please know that each one of you have a solid place in my heart and I thank you and appreciate you.

I am scared about my future but I will leave you all with a thought that I have been holding onto:

I believe there is a man at the top of a very high mountain (God) who can see clearly each path ahead of me.  I haven’t been very good at trusting his viewpoint and have instead, for far too long, been making may own way through a valley full of trees I can’t see beyond.  I must finally acquiesce and ask him to help me find the right path.

I know many of you hate religion and/or don’t believe in a higher power but for me, it is the only comfort I am finding.  The soul deep trust that God is real and he will give me the strength I need to survive.  So if you do believe and you believe in the power of prayer… Please pray for me…

I hope everyone has a beautiful Christmas and hopefully I will see you in the new year. Thank you for your support.  Feel free to email anytime

  1. I’ve enjoyed our brief reading each other’s stuff and I wish you peace and joy. I will pray for you and ask the same for myself. It’s been a hard year hasn’t it? Take care


  2. I wondered where you’d gone. Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do. Good luck with your decisions and know that all those you have touched will miss you, and your words have already done much, and we will be pleased to see you back again anytime, hopefully in a good place. J.


  3. Hasty, the happy ending is still out there for you. It just will look different than you originally envisioned. You are a remarkable person. Your pathway is laid out before you embrace each step you take, though painful, takes you closer to your happy ending. I’m only a msg away 🙂

  4. I know you’ll be back, and we’ll all be here waiting for you. In the meanwhile, do what you need to do in your real life. This is an important time for you to eliminate anything extra, like the blog. And remember my offer to help you out. Or if you feel compelled to write anything, but don’t want to make your blog active, let me know, I’ll post it on mine for you. Or we can write together. Whatever you need, I’m here. Email, text, or call me anytime.


  5. Hello Hasty I thought of you tonight out of the blue! I am probably one that has followed you the shortest amount of time, I want to share something that helped me. I wrote this on a card and carried it with me.

    Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Is 40:31

    I pray you soar! Blessings to you and your precious loved ones! MM
