Life Through My Eyes

What’s Your Frequency?

Unfortunately new stresses were added to the plate during the months of February and March and after wading through the storms of fear particularly with the unknown I had to just STOP! Going through another bout of depression and being completely aware how I silently suffer through it makes me feel like a big pain […]

Good Grief

This last week has been a trying one. Biggie didn’t want to come in most of the day on Wednesday, so he sat underneath the trampoline. A few hours later, my daughter, Lauryn, found him laying motionless in the front yard. The kitchen light spread over him like a blanket. You wouldn’t have been able […]

Are You Smiling?

The soft pattering of rain hits against the roof. I pour myself a cup of coffee and revel in that first sip… but the dog is barking outside. Not Biggie, it’s Creed…again. I throw the door open and notice that our sweet dog has decided to make the trash his new play thing. Diapers and […]

Losing Sight

I sit in a waiting room with people who are significantly older than me. Most them slumped in their seats, staring into spaces that sight cannot reach. Some have one hand resting on their walker attentively waiting for their name to be called. Others sit in a wheelchair, drowsy from too much or too little […]

Stressed? It’s Forking Desserts

Did you know that desserts spelled backwards is stressed? It was news to me. It’s no wonder that desserts are often given to us when we are stressed the fork out. So, Are You Feeling Stressed? Stress forking affects EVERYTHING in my life. Be it mentally, physically, and emotionally. I wished I wouldn’t let it […]

“Oh Buhay”: Life is So Hard

Oh buhay, Tagalog for “Life is so hard.” In contrast, my sweet friend, Maribel, made me a frame that says, ” Life… it’s so easy.” It’s a little inside joke my friends and I have with her. We can either go through life thinking one of the two. How do you see it? I’m blinking […]

Making Connections: Penny in My Thoughts

We were The Bania’s, a family of three. It consisted of my dad, Lou, my mom, Remy, and myself. My dad found a niche as an electrician and refrigeration technician in San Francisco and the surrounding areas. His accounts included Taco Bell chains, Pizza Hut, and Wolf Gang Puck on the Pier, and what he […]

Half Empty or Half Full?

I have read and used psychology throughout my life. Next month I begin my journey towards my Ph.D. in Psychology. Unfortunately, people won’t take me seriously without that paper that says, Desiree Sharon Haros, is certifiably able to say, “blah, blah, blah.” Listen to her because she has a Ph.D. I have already joined the […]

A Come to Jesus Moment or What Have You

Choice #1 Two nights ago, after a minor “discussion” with my husband. We decided it would be in our best interest, if we went to get some food…meaning fast food. Choice #2 We saw Lexi and Lauryn (our two oldest) on the way out. Lexi had picked Lauryn up from work. Lauryn works at Wendy’s. […]

Depression: The Big “D” Word

Let’s make that a double. This is Desiree on Depression. What I’m about to talk about comes from deep within my soul. I have talked about this sort of thing before, but not at this level. You can say “I’m leveling up.” -quote from the movie Free Guy. I have been in a dark place […]
