Sharing:  A Short List Of Things I’m Learning As I Get Older


These are great. @SaraMahlet

Taylor Bryant1. I’m learning that my power really lies in my reactions. I’m finally seeing that not every little thing that bothers me deserves a reaction. I’m learning that no matter what the outcome of a situation is, I’m always able to walk away from it with a better understanding of myself. I’m finally realizing…

A series on how my healing had been.


Choosing to take care of myself. Part 1

I know it’s just October, but this year has been choosy so far.

As you know twice a week (with occasional breaks) I have helped my mom volunteer at Cheshire. I am the tech ninja who sets up the audio-visual items we use. That means playing the movies and making sure the speakers are clear sounding. We use our own equipment except for the television. I can’t just trust anybody to do this except for my dad.

I was approached to help them with their equipment and teaching the patients. As my mentor Mary, would say “Don’t take a bigger bite than you can handle.” I was reminded about a chance to contribute to a local hospitality magazine.

I had to ask my mom for advice because I honestly didn’t know the cultural response and if it was right for me. I ended up not going with either offers. In fact, it pushed me towards to blog more. It was something I could handle.

The whole reason I took this trip was to rebuild my confidence and heal from the wounds of my life choices. For a long time, the bad stress took over and I needed to find myself once more.

Chester WadeSometimes I don’t have the right words. Sometimes when I try to talk to someone I love about something so heavy, so important, I feel at a loss. How can I convey my love? How can I show that person his or her strength? How can I urge them to fight, to continue, to…

Sharing:  All it takes is a smile and they think you are ok


Smile and the world will never know what is behind that grin.

Even when you are screaming on the inside, nobody around you hears it. Sometimes when everything sucks, you are the only one who can turn things around. You are not a helpless victim to unwanted circumstances. You always have a choice – a choice of perspective. Even the worst of times have value. It strenghtens […]

Thank you for viewing.❤️Sara


That feeling you get when someone hits the like button.😊

Recently my WP notifications displayed that I got several hits. I was so happy that I was getting results and many views. I felt inspired to write 2 more posts that will soon be sent.

My goal for October is to change some of the posts on the site. Essentially I would like to get more connection with my readers, followers, and other bloggers/writers. I want to ask more questions and do a dialogue with others.

I also want to share bits and pieces of my projects to reach others who deal with anxiety, depression, ADD, and especially those affected by bullying. We need to build ourselves and remember that we do matter!

We are all Starting Over from various situations and we need a safe place to get the information and support we need.
