Unveiling the Unavailable

I feel as if I haven't written about relationships in a while, and the inspiration hit when I was having a discussion with a friend on the way home from work today. We were dissecting something I'd read that examined being attracted to and attracting unavailable people (both physically and emotionally), and ultimately, forging faux-lationships with...

Control Freak

You can only control your actions - people aren't dolls to play with, or robots to program to do your bidding.

The Heart of the Matter

Forgiveness. It's a word that's been on my mind for a couple of weeks now. I'd been contemplating whether or not I should write about it, and then Sunday morning, India Arie's cover of the song "Heart of the Matter" rolled through on Pandora, and then her song "Wings of Forgiveness" came on.

We feel insecure, unloved, depressed - every negative emotion and feeling available. And some days, it's seemingly impossible. We'll never find true... Continue Reading →

This Mortal Life

I am heartbroken over the passing of Paul Walker. Did I know him? No, not personally, of course. But many of us get to "know" celebrities by the moments we share with them in movies, from photos, from their work in the community. Many of us begin to think of these celebrities as our friends...

Here Comes the Sun

It's so easy to a bitter, sour person when things don't go your way. Maybe you didn't get that promotion you wanted, or they left you out of the equation yet again. Maybe your archenemy just drove by in the car you wanted, or purchased the house you thought you'd be able to buy. Unfortunately, bitterness won't improve... Continue Reading →
