The Dragonfly Effect

This morning was not, by many standards, a good day. I woke up exhausted, having spent the night tossing and turning, uncomfortable and restless. I snoozed for a bit, then woke up with a start, because now I was running late. Traffic was awful, making my commute last almost an hour. I got to the... Continue Reading →

When One Moment Ends, Another Begins

The idealism that we may have felt on 12/31/15 has been chipped at a little, but it doesn't mean that the year was lived in vain. Some of us attained knowledge of self and others, in ways that made us question everything around us. It was a year of growth - uncomfortable growth - that served the purpose of revealing our strengths, and our weaknesses.

In Transition

There are moments in your life in which you'll feel lost, unfocused, unmotivated, unambitious. It will seem like everything you want and dream of is always just out of reach. You will be filled with indescribable pain - pain that doesn't radiate from a clear point, but is felt intensely just the same. Your appetite... Continue Reading →

It’s Better to Heal…Than to Hurt

It's very easy to run away from and avoid the reality of our lives. It's even easier to harbor hatred and feigned indifference, than it is to examine ourselves and determine the role we've played in the demise of something that was once deemed important and beautiful. Hatred is not a clear-cut emotion, but is... Continue Reading →

Lowered Expectations

Something has been on my mind for the last couple of weeks. It's been weighing very heavily...so heavily that I haven't been able to shape my thoughts enough around the subject to begin writing. And it's not something super serious, but it's something super important. I get my inspiration for my posts in the most... Continue Reading →

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. So yeah, the question... Continue Reading →

What’s Your Vision?

What's your vision for 2015 and beyond? A friend of mine purchased a book for another friend, entitled, "One Word That Will Change Your Life", and, while I haven't read it (I plan to!), the idea is a novel one. What better way to keep yourself and your goals in sight than to give yourself... Continue Reading →

Back Scrubs and Doggie Bags

Yeah, yeah, another post about being single. But this is a serious one. Soooo serious. You never realize how many things you take for granted when you're a part of a couple, especially when it's all you've known for ten or more years. Obviously, when you get that far, you just assume that it's going to... Continue Reading →

Turn Pipe Dreams Into Reality

Every once in a while, we find ourselves lost, confused...feeling out of place. We look in the mirror, and all we feel is disdain and displeasure with the image reflected back at us. 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 →
