I am not a rock

I try to be strong

Self sufficient


Not complain

Work for the things I need

Provide for myself and my children

I’m not lazy

I’m not entitled

I’m not expecting handouts

But also

Life is a giant, difficult obstacle course

And I can’t possibly do it alone

Others have helped along the way

Others still help me

Strangers have saved my life

Friends have made my life bearable

Laughter and love makes it all worthwhile

Especially when shared

I am not in this alone

And while that has worked against me at times

It has also made my life extraordinary

And magical

And humbled me to people’s generosity

Peoples affection, care and concern

People going out of their way for me when they didn’t have to at all.

And I’m glad to not be a rock


The other day a man called asking all kinds of questions about his personal account on eBay.

I helped him as much as I could and then referred him directly to eBay.

He thanked me and asked me why I had been so helpful.

I said “because no one succeeds alone.

We all need to help each other out in life”

And I stick by that

I stick by that completely.

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew myself...here that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol
