Suspense Short Story


Aspirational Piece

I scream at the cosmos, “Enough!” But it falls on the deaf ears of a vacuum. Against my will, my thoughts retract into dark places.


It should have been all peaches and rainbows...till I walked into an office today.

The Hyper Nutrition Smoothie Challenge is Over!

Wow. It’s day forty-two. I had never done a challenge like this before and I did it! Was I perfect? Nope, but I did better than I imagined.

Choose Joy

In addition to the Hyper-Smoothie, I’ve incorporated other happy aspects into my life to reduce stress. Life feels nice. Calmer.

The Picnic with Chicken and Stars

We went to dinner to celebrate, uh oh…can you tell what I am getting at? Did my jubilation cause me to fall off the Hyper-Nourishment wagon?

Roller Coaster

Oh no, I’m getting tired of eating broccoli and guac. Never thought I’d say that about my beloved avocado.

Running Pace

Went full fledge making The Smoothie on Friday...Should I start with the good news or the bad?

Go Greens!

Greens are going to be my super power. I have various issues which contribute to suboptimal health. Time to kick their symptomatic butt.
