Proud of you Viking!  Keep up the good work!


Despite my rant on Monday about the decrease in blog views, the followers number just keeps on rising. I absolutely love you all! I truly hope I never get used to this. As I said before, a book giveaway is coming at 1000! Thank you! – Viking

Why I am sharing more.

As many people tell me get online when you can. Well we are into the second month of limits.  So I go to my Reader and Discover for some ideas. When I can I will like or comment. I also want to share it with more people. It was so good that others should read it too.

I had to cut back on my social media via my cell phone. When I can go to a IC/Internet cafe I will head to my email and Facebook. My Twitter app draft is full of tweets to send. Than my Note app has ideas that I am brainstorming. I haven’t stopped writing just deciding to go through my journals for some of my early entries.

I am not sure how long this limit will be. I am just patiently awaighting that thrill of sending not drafting.  Until than I am sharing away. Who knows I may send out my tweets via my blog.  Ooh there is an idea.


Never give up, never give in. Keep going until the end. ~Sara

One of my favorite poems is Invictus by William Ernest Henley. The story behind the poem is also impressive: Henley contracted tuberculosis of the bone when he was 13. At age 17, physicians had to amputate one of his legs. Yet he wrote that: “In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor […]

You might notice

I tend to repeat myself a lot. I tend to put a post on both my blogs. That way it can get a larger audience. You can tell my personality from my words. I hate bigotry in all its forms. I have a sponge trait everything goes in and hard to push it out. When I see a child lying in on cold concrete I want to put a blanket over them so they don’t freeze. I know I am a rare kind of person. Some compare me to an angel. Provoke me and you see a very defensive woman. I hate bullies they are the rudest people in the world. They put you down to cover up their own insecurities. As far as my political stand I am an unregistered Liberal. They are looking out for the little people. When I was separated the strong suggestion was get on State assistance. Not thinking I would get it. Low and behold I qualified for it. Thank you President Obama for looking out for me. I want people to search their hearts. Would you help someone or let them freeze?

Reblog: Handle with Care

I sometimes take a picture of you because you’re just so adorable and amazing and beautiful. And sometimes I catch a hint of fragility in what the camera catches. Other times I see huge heaping mounds of it. Giant reserves of delicate. Like you’re a crystal chandelier in the shape of my beautiful boy. And […]


Day 13 of NaBloPoMo: The Good, the Bad, and the uh oh I am in trouble.

Before I begin today’s entry I want to welcome all the new readers out there.  Today I thought long and hard about what I was going to write about.  Sometimes I feel as if I am stepping on a stage and giving little lectures of how life really is like. So with that being said here is Day 12 of NaBloPoMo. (Note of you read my entry a few days ago this re: Sara in Wonderland  this would be considered part 2 in the series)


I have always been a wallflower.  I am incredibly shy and yet I tend to be the most talkative person you could meet (once I get to know you of course).  In my life there has always been good, bad, and oh no don’t tell my parents.  When I think about it someone might like to laugh because people will look at this and think what does she mean?  Well other kids out there who are preacher’s kid’s will understand what I am saying.


Sorry all I started this a little late so I will write another part tomorrow….until then stay tuned. 🙂






Day 7 & 8 of NaBloPoMo: Honesty Part 1

I fell a little behind this week with my writing.  I hope my readers will forgive me.  I spent over night thinking about a lot of things.  Part of me wasn’t sure of I could keep up with my blog.  It is not like I can’t it is just well I do want to someday write a book about my life.  I thought of my blog as my rough draft as it may.  Something I could do with my free time as I am going through my life and transition.  So if there are times when I am not writing or blogging.  I hope you will understand that I am doing my free writing.  I am planning on putting my old entries on here so everyone can read (or reread if it may).  I truly feel I have a gift to give the world.  I am just not sure whether it will be in the online world or the traditional world.  For me becoming Sara was a tough decision.  I had to take a risk and leave behind my life.  Not only in the traditional sense (when I got divorced), but also in my writing.  I wanted to become myself and not be the wife, daughter, or mother of ____.  I am not sure how this will go… but I hope I will be part of some sort of community that will feel refreshed to hear a different point of view in the world.



Day 6 of NaBloPoMo: Identity

I thought today’s entry would be a little lighter than yesterday. I wasn’t feeling very well, but somehow I came up with yesterday’s entry. I have dealt with a lot of anxiety issues lately. One thing I have wondered (even before I met my son’s father) was where do I belong? What was my identity. I wish I could say that I am rebuilding my identity. The thing is the summer I met my son’s father that same question was running through my head. All I ever wanted in my life was to find my niche and where I belong. So for the next few days I am going to begin telling a little of my story and why I am trying to start over this year. I might use some of my old blog entries during this time. Plus readers there is so much to me besides a ex-housewife turned writer.

On a sad note due to a lot of the stress I well I have forgotten a lot recently. When I started this blog I wanted to break my silence as a woman who wanted to write her pain away. “Refresh” has a new meaning in my life because I moved away from my ex-husband and I am starting over with my family. I have to rebuild some of my memories as well. I am hoping by December I can be writing as an inspiration to anyone who might not find their place in the world. Because that is my new goal. The find out what my identity as a young woman starting over from the top.
