Confession: I Go Out Alone
Confession: I Go Out Alone

I’m writing this from a bar stool where I perch alone. Solo. Wrapped in my own thoughts. Does that make your palms sweat? Speed your heart? Or are you the kind who relishes in your independence? One who loves the adventure of the unknown. A person who is secure enough to have a dat... read more

Finding the Balance Between Roles & Love
Finding the Balance Between Roles & Love

When I met my husband, we were 20 years old. Seven years later, we were 2,200 miles from where we started our journey. While my hubby was finishing graduate school, we decided to move to the Pacific Northwest. We sold our home and relocated (trust me, it was harder than I just made it so... read more

Afraid of Love?
Afraid of Love?

What do I fear? Death? You bet. Flying? Afraid so. I developed that fear inexplicably when I turned 19 and have been dealing with it ever since. Spiders? Sure, they are creepy and crawly!

Self-Acceptance Isn’t Easy
Self-Acceptance Isn’t Easy

Self-acceptance is not easy. It takes ages to acquire and it’s not always pleasant events that allow it to happen. Achieving self-acceptance and becoming whole is a long journey and often a complete pain in the ass. But it’s also vitally important for a happy, healthy life. Acceptance, evolution... read more

‘Til Death Do Us Part
‘Til Death Do Us Part

For those who don’t know me quite as well, I’ve done this before. And by “this”, I mean marriage. I’m 28 years old and not only do I have a husband but I have an ex-husband.  At the age of 20, just weeks before giving birth to my daughter, despite feelings of fear and ... read more
