How we perceive the world becomes the way we experience it.  Perceptions evolve over time and through personal experience.

Empathy, compassion, courage, independence, and a sense of belonging to something outside ourselves are essential elements in forming healthy relationships.  But before you can know anyone else, you must first know yourself.

This blog is my struggle; it is my journey.  IttyMac is the voice inside my body escaping in a myriad of ways, in a sincere attempt to simply leave a trace.

      Thank you so much Sabrina. I find myself nearly at a loss for words, just nearly! Mine is a new blog and I’m sincerely grateful my words are being read, let alone nominated for an award!

    Keep up the good work and thanks for the visit and award. After a few awards, I found them very time consuming to do. I usually barely have time to do my daily blogging, which I much prefer to spend my time on. But I totally appreciate the nomination!! 🙂

      I realize joy doesn’t exist in everything but wisdom does. Some days insight is the best we get. And if we’re smart we’ll turn to ‘lessons learned’ just in time to deal with new challenges.

      Good morning from Arkansas, Irene! I thank you so much for your support! I’m forced to take a pass on this amazing award honor at this time however. As you said, these are personally challenging times, leaving precious little free time, but I want to tell you that your support means more to me than you will ever know. itty
