#BeREALationships – LET ME LOVE YOU, ALWAYS

Please welcome me (Hasty) to #BeREALationships. 🙂 Relationships aren’t something I think people get right or wrong.  They just ARE whatever they are.  A relationship can last a lifetime but I believe many times they literally last a few short hours or even minutes.  Did you make a connection?  Then you formed a relationship.  re·la·tion·ship  …

KEEP RIDING

The merry-go-round keeps spinning. I used to think life was a roller coaster with all its ups and downs but when I look back I see it’s really more of a merry-go-round that spins at different speeds. Merry-go-rounds are always more enjoyable when you have someone to ride them with.  And then you need someone…

YOU ARE MY HOME

Home. It isn’t a place. I stood looking at all the boxes I just packed and put into storage. Boxes of stuff I don’t have an immediate need for. Boxes of time and money spent on things to make life easier and hopefully happier. Too many years searching and collecting the wrong things. I went…

BECOMING ROBOTS

Do you ever feel like you have a million things to say to a hundred different people but you don’t because you are afraid they won’t hear you? They won’t care? They won’t understand? We are becoming words on a screen.  Body language is being left out. I can say I need help but you…

RAZOR BLADE TONGUES

This is not my situation but it is the situation for many.  Help stop abuse by listening with not only your ears but your eyes and your heart.  If you only listen with your ears you are missing more than half of the story. You etch your love into me With a million tongues Made…

#BeReal – SAMARA SPEAKS

My #BeReal guest today is Samara Speaks. That isn’t her real name but it is the one I have always known her by.  Facebook wants me to know her by another name so  they deactivated her account asking her to #BeReal.  But Samara is who she is. Samara IS real. I practically begged her for…
