    Darkness

    “Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”~ Brene Brown This quote, as many have stated can bring up a lot inside me. There are so many avenues I could go down with just this one quote. Today, however, I have darkness. In my soul and in my heart. Darkness that is my own, but born from a darkness that is in my daughter. There are never enough words for me to express the love I have for my daughter. It isn’t just love, but respect that she will never believe I have. She has made mistakes. I have…

    Exercise

    I have often wondered if exercise is a kink for me.  I have a love/hate relationship with it, just as I do some of my kinks so maybe it is safe to say that exercise is also a kink. I have always been active without going to the gym or scheduling a workout.  I danced for eight years; tap, ballet, and jazz.  I then moved on to karate for 6 years and reached my brown belt level, testing for my green belt when I was eight months pregnant.  I played basketball in high school and did gymnastics as well.  I never had the habit of purposefully exercising. When kids and…

    Inspiration from unexpected sources

    I have spent a lot of time looking for and finding inspiration. Inspiration has always come easy to me; it is the follow up that I struggle to conquer.  It has taken me a long time to realize that inspiration comes from unexpected sources.  I have never been someone to delve into a self-help book for answers.  From the best to the worst, I usually finish the book, podcast, or seminar with the feeling that I already knew everything the said.  It was just putting it into action that I struggled with finishing. I know in most parts of my life what I need to do.  I should eat better…

    Doing Things or not Doing Things, it is a Choice!

    Doing things or not doing things it is a choice. Every day we have a choice to make on all levels.  Trying to keep within the legal limits, of course, we are faced with decisions and choices every day.  How we handle those decisions and how we approach the choices we make is essential.  We can all look back and wonder, “What the hell was I thinking?” but we can also look back and say, “Damn, I nailed that one!”.  How we view our choices is also a choice. I was going through my phone, clearing some pictures off of it.  I take pictures of memes, and different things as…

    Feeling Strappy Kinks

    I am feeling strappy kinks!  Maybe I am feeling strappy because it has been forever since I have experienced them.  I love straps of any kind, in clothing, and how they feel when they graze my body.  My biggest kink (thus far) is impact play.  Spanking, crops, and belts have been my experience, and I love them all.  Flogging is something that I have not experienced but hope that someday I will.  Until then, I will settle for soft straps across my body.  This suit was ordered during one of my sleep shopping nights.  Silly, I know, but I honestly don’t remember ordering this!  It came in the mail, and…
