April A to Z Challenge: K

K = Knowledge

"Knowledge is Power".  That's a quote that I've heard several times throughout my life and it never had as great of an impact on me as it has in the last few months.  When D. moved out and we were during one of our periods where we weren't speaking or seeing each other, I started to realize that there were alot of things that I relied on him for.  Whether it was fixing something around the house or just having a second opinion on something, I relied on him alot.  At some point, I made a vow to stop letting that dependence on him run my life.  I needed to start finding the answers to whatever questions that I would have asked him or figuring out how to do things on my own.  That is when I began harnessing the power of that little thing called the internet.  What a big bad world of power that little gem is!  In the past few months, YouTube and have been my buddies!  I've gained a new sense of independence and strength that I didn't have before but I've also gained knowledge.  I'm finding that I'm less stressed out because all the knowledge that I need can likely be found just by Googling whatever the issue is.  It's true. . .Knowledge IS Power!


  1. Hooray for being independent! I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month.

  2. I have always wanted to change that to: Reliable knowledge is power. With the advent of the Internet and search engines, all manner of opinions are available, and not all are accurate.

    I am glad you are gaining independence! That is liberating.
