    how had the fun-loving, fun-living girl reached this?
    this state of curl-up-in-a-ball while wailing into her wine depression…

  • chantemcb commented on the post, broke 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    I’ve spent most of my life being broke.
    As a child, I never felt poor.
    As a young adult, I traveled around the world on a dime – seeing the glorious colors of each continent.
    Then I grew up and became a 1%er on paper. But charged it all.
    I lost my job and the weight of those decisions weighed on me and my family like a glacier.
    I earned…[Read more]

  • chantemcb commented on the post, flex 3 weeks, 5 days ago

    her cup overflowed with the bitter dregs of disappointment
    she didn’t get the role..the recognition she craved
    she’d have to flex her acting muscles
    and face the jeering crowd

    The red and white Japanese lantern served as the nightlight for her dreams.
    As she swam to sleep, she’d see the faint light illuminate her imagination…

  • chantemcb commented on the post, bell 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    the bell..
    such a shockingly violent way to start the day
    clangle, jangle, buzz
    get yo’ ass up outta that bed
    and get to work

    it doesn’t feel live i’ve won the morning…

  • chantemcb commented on the post, illuminated 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Yoga illuminated her thought.
    It was a respite from all the “go go go” constant “gotta check off my to do list” busy-ness of life.
    She could be in stillness & reconnect with her thoughts and feelings.
    THIS is who I am – she thought….

    She offered him the best of herself…and he rebuffed her.
    He didn’t explain why – kept it light, kept if “friend” ly
    She died a thousand deaths

  • chantemcb commented on the post, gesture 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    He gestured wildly to her, yet didn’t say a word. His lips were pursed – partly surprised – and partly disgusted by what he saw: A severed hand emerging from leaf-covered mounds of dirt. Traces of blood splattered across the digits.

    It was her first day as a police officer, and she froze. The training manual was much more clinical than the…[Read more]

    she sang with a purity that could only be described as angelic.
    crystalline notes soar into the heavens,
    causing God to raise her lips in a smile of appreciation

  • chantemcb commented on the post, nominee 2 months ago

    What a shit show.

    The marionette nominee was being paraded to distract the American people from the other issues that were stripping rights away from American Citizens as deliberately has a stripper performs a lapdance. Slow, intentional and with a deliberate focus.

  • chantemcb commented on the post, circus 2 months, 1 week ago

    Her life was a circus

    Red nosed clowns at work; top-hatted yoga teacher guiding her in the mornings on her mat

    She felt like she was scrambling from one trapeze to the other (corporate warrior…peaceful warrior)- with no net

  • chantemcb commented on the post, imbalance 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    imbalance is my life
    reporters ask the rich and famous how they balance it all..
    “They” achieve balance because they have excess $ to outsource icky tasks
    as for the rest of us…we have to do it all…ourselves
    there’s no balance in what we do
    and there’s no balance in the wealth distribution

  • chantemcb commented on the post, logical 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    She lived like Spock – a life of logic
    Devoid of the ability to understand or diagnose emotion
    How does it feel?
    Irrelevant
    Or so she assumed…

    shiny, glistening silver
    reflecting the world of possibilities in front of her
    pink and white streamers bobbing acknowledging her past
