ME TOO

ME TOO

I wrote this in the bathtub in under 10 minutes. The words spilled out of my mind onto the notes in my iPhone. Sometimes, when you have truths dying to be set free, it's like that. So here goes. We can heal the trauma that came with our DNA, intertwined with all the...

THIS IS THE WORK.

THIS IS THE WORK.

You can feel yourself asking "is this it?" and "what if I want more?" But you're scared. Scared to answer those questions and even more scared of what people will think if you do. You know in your gut you aren't living the life you were meant to and/or up to your...

Lessons a la 2018.

Lessons a la 2018.

I've been sitting here on New Year's Eve doing what most people do on the last day of the year. Or at least what most people in my circle do. Or at least what I do. Reflect. Plan. Set goals. Set intentions. Think about what I learned about myself, life and others over...

A Glimpse Beneath the Armor

"You're one of the strongest people I've ever met." If I had a nickel for every time someone has said this to me, I could melt them all down and wear them as my suit of armor. Except I already use my strength to do that. I nearly cringe when people say this to me now,...

YOU’RE AMAZING

I'm sick with the flu and haven't had the energy to sit and write a blog post this week. Instead, I thought I would share a poem I recently wrote. It came about after another man expressed his desire for me, but had no intentions of wanting to build a relationship...

The Truth About My Furniture (and My Life)

The Truth About My Furniture (and My Life)

I bought patio furniture and when it came, I needed to assemble it, which I hate. I hate assembling anything. Mostly because I don't read instructions. I don't have patience for it. I don't have the attention span for instructions. I skim them and assume I'll figure...

TIME’S UP — Taking My Power Back

TIME’S UP — Taking My Power Back

TRIGGER WARNING. I can remember what I saw when I finally got up and walked into the bathroom. I looked at the person in the mirror and didn’t recognize what I saw. I had mascara carving wicked lines into my cheeks down to my chin. My wavy hair, which was only made...

Overcoming the Belief That Divorce is Failure

Overcoming the Belief That Divorce is Failure

I was just reading something online someone wrote about divorce and how they were trying to reconcile it as a big fat failure. I remember feeling that way. Before the divorce, I spent months and money on therapy, countless tears and sleepless nights trying to figure...
