I started this blog with intent to vent frustrations and find support amidst other awesome bloggers going through similar troubles. I was in search of healing.

The Beautiful Grind

This new life is starting to make sense. I’m beginning to find the rythym with classes and work. I do laundry and homework on Saturday and try to relax as much as possible on Sunday before going in to build boxes. Unfortunately that’s part of my job now.  I’m a bread man. I don’t own … More The Beautiful Grind

Where and when am I

It’s been a while since my last post, but I can’t dream of anyone twiddling their thumbs in anticipation of another pointless ramble.

Good days ahead

Well folks, I think it’s finally starting. I woke up the same today feeling about 40% but something happened. My wife texted me and I did NOT hyperventilate, freak out, or feel hopeless. The reason? God is with me my friends. I have accepted what will be and albeit I don’t like it, God is … More Good days ahead
