This weekend I stayed with my friend Jen. Jen is a very interesting woman, as many of the women I surround myself with, she feels better with men than she does with her same sex, as I do. Jen and I have been close for many years now, have walked through fires and rages together, have held each other's hands through sadness and strength. I nearly lost Jen at a point in her life when she was struggling to know herself, but because of our open communication and space that I gave her to be herself, we eventually connected again. In many ways, Jen and I are on the same path and though we do things differently, for different reasons, much of our beleifs and lifestyles are the same.
Jen is an Herbalist, a Yoga Instructor, and Environmentalist, an Artist, a Poet, a Writer and more. Both of us, studied our Herbalism and received certificates, both of us have desires to create a business for our holistic practices, and at the same time, both of us fear to do so.

What is it that keeps people like Jen and I back from doing what we dream? Why do we fear failure so much when we are people of strength and courage? What is the main factor in why we feel unable to acomplish our one life goal and bring it to fruition? Jen thinks, as I do, that if we teamed up, we could do it. But why can't we do it alone?

I know how you feel. Before my life turned to shit I was terrified to go to New York. Now I have to.

I almost feel I could do it, but I'm really scared. I don't want to lose my stability, but then I think, not everyone started out with money and maybe it would be good for Erik and I to pare down for a change instead of acting like we have so much money, just live like we don't so we can save more, but this country makes things very hard. I only need $200.00 to start my business with supplies. It would be that easy. I just shut off my cable in hopes of saving a bit more money, and I need to pay off three big bills and we'll be out of debt. I'm hoping by next year, I can actually do something.

I take it you two are putting off the whole baby thing for a while?

You know, I think this is becoming another year of transition.

No, not really. There are people worse off than us that have kids. If it happens, it happens, if it doesn't, it doesn't.
