Biting Love Glacier


Daughter: Have you asked her to be your Valentine?

Me: No. She’s already my valentine.

Daughter: You still have to ask her!

Me: WTAF? Really. When did this become a thing?

Daughter: Since, forever.

Me: Fine.


Toilet Rage Posting


We’ve all been there. Raging. Scrolling. Legs numb. Just me?
We struggle to articulate our thoughts and arguments. But there’s that perfect meme that will encapsulate the exact thing we’re thinking in the most passive-aggressive way imaginable.
Now, if I can just find it.

One body. One mind.


“Your entire life happens inside your body.
It’s the one home you will always occupy and can never sell…
Everything is downstream from how your body is functioning.” @jamesclear
This quote shook me.
It refocused me to take care of my mental and physical wellbeing.
One body. One mind. That’s all we get.

13 Years since I Walked Away


13 years since I walked away…
from my dependable job with benefits and reliability. Still standing and thriving.
Don’t be fooled by the hype. It’s not easy.
It’s not recommended for the faint of heart. But I had to bet on myself and went all in.
Plus I don’t have a heart.

I wish I could remember


I wish I could remember the last time…
they ran into my arms & then I tossed them in the air.
The glee & laughter would set the tone for the ride home.
They’d tell me about their week and all the new friends they made.
Then they’d ask about our plans for the weekend and what adventures we were going on.
I wish I could remember. #fatheringfromadistance
