Decisions, Decisions…

We all have to make them. Sometimes they are as simple as deciding what pair of socks go best with an outfit, or if you want your hair parted to the left today. But sometimes the decisions that need to be made take a little more time, care and consideration. With these more complex decisionsContinue reading “Decisions, Decisions…”

Duct Tape, Super Glue & Rubber Bands…

All our trusty standby’s for when we need to fix something, but unfortunately they cannot fix everything. It would be wonderful if we could super glue a broken heart back together, duct tape a fractured relationship to hold it in place, or rubber band trust to keep it secure. Yes, that would be a beautifulContinue reading “Duct Tape, Super Glue & Rubber Bands…”

Yesterdays and Tomorrows

There is a quote I heard on one of my favorite television shows that says, “You get to a point in your life where you realize you’ve got more yesterdays than tomorrows.” I believe I am far from that point, but I do hope that for however many tomorrows I have left, I won’t haveContinue reading “Yesterdays and Tomorrows”

“Listen To Me”

It’s what we always seem to say to our children, but when do we listen to them? When do we give them the platform to speak their minds and voice their opinions? In my house, I have always encouraged my kids to speak up, telling them that God gave them a brain and voice forContinue reading ““Listen To Me””

The Comfort of Depression

Sounds confusing right? When is depression ever comfortable? Well trust me, I have discovered over the course of many conversations with various people that it is in fact a place of comfort. I have dealt with my own fair share of depression, my own and that of those I have loved. You yourself have dealtContinue reading “The Comfort of Depression”

Unrequited Love…

What is it? By Definition it is “not reciprocated or returned in kind”, this seems painfully and obviously true, but is there something deeper to it? When you love someone, and you have spent a somewhat significant portion of your life with them, how can they simply feel nothing? And is it ever enough toContinue reading “Unrequited Love…”

The Addiction Has Set In…

I AM A RUNNER! Yesterday I had the unbelievably amazing experience of completing my first half marathon! This course took me from Detroit, over the Ambassador Bridge to Windsor, through the tunnel (known as the underwater mile) and back into Detroit where I completed the last 5 miles to the finish line. What a beautifulContinue reading “The Addiction Has Set In…”

When Love Isn’t Enough…

I suppose sometimes it is not. But the question is, why? Are we making poor choices? Are we unknowingly seeking out the least attainable one because we have some deep seeded fear of a real relationship? Maybe for some people that is true, but in the grand scheme of things I think we are meantContinue reading “When Love Isn’t Enough…”

MISSION: HALF MARATHON

As I sit here on the eve of what is my one week countdown to Mission: Half Marathon, I find myself filled with both excitement and terror. Training for this goal of mine has been less than kind. So why the hell am I doing it?! Because there is something inside me that needs toContinue reading “MISSION: HALF MARATHON”

Musicians Are People Too…

Aren’t they? I write this because lately I’ve notice some of my favorite bands have had to make adjustments to their tour schedule due to “personal reasons”. Now sadly, the first thing anyone ever seems to assume is that it’s due to drug use. Many of these bands have fought hard to recover and maintainContinue reading “Musicians Are People Too…”

The Death of Romance?

Is romance dead? Personally, I don’t think so, but I do believe it has been forced to the back burner of life. We all find ourselves so consumed with work, children, finances, etc., but what about our relationships? Why do we wait until we get to the point of “I don’t know what happened” beforeContinue reading “The Death of Romance?”

Last Minute Random Thoughts…

We are where we are, because it is where we are meant to be…we have within our lives, exactly what we need…once we learn to accept this, and find a place of peace…all will be revealed, giving us more than we ever dreamed… ©Gloria Tassen and Life According To G, 2013.

SUCCESS IN FAILURE…

Over the past few days I have been privy to some varied topics in life. And while all are vastly different, and seem un-relatable, I find myself drawing the same conclusion for them all. I think it all comes down to a matter of responsibility, and ownership of one’s own behavior. Acceptance for what is,Continue reading “SUCCESS IN FAILURE…”

Speak Up For Yourself and Your Relationships…

Quite often I find myself the “unofficial therapist” to friends and loved ones. I don’t mind it at all; in fact I have at times thought maybe that is my true calling in life. At any rate, these conversations we have always get me thinking (as if I need any help with that). Lately, thereContinue reading “Speak Up For Yourself and Your Relationships…”
