You Need to Cut It

Have you ever had a conversation with someone about aspects of your life that you KNOW you need to change, and you kind of brush it off like, yeah yeah whatever. You hear them, but you're not truly listening to what they're saying. We all like to think we're completely right, and for the most... Continue Reading →

Insufferable Sufferers

What would happen if you decided to love yourself? Like, really love yourself? What if you woke up in the morning and, instead of being frustrated that it's all starting over again, you were determined to face the day and enjoy being you? That you woke up with a song on your lips, a little... Continue Reading →

Sharing is Caring…Literally

I grew up in a household with five other siblings, three being younger than me, and I can recall despising the concept of sharing. I would look at the adults and think, none of THEM are sharing - why do I have to? I would go to school and balk at the kids wanting to borrow... Continue Reading →

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...

If It Isn’t Love…

**cue up the New Edition record**. So many songs about love...what it feels like, what it sounds like, hell, what it tastes like. It isn't a negative emotion, experience, feeling. The very essence of love is in the fact that it denotes positivity and freedom. Love is freedom. Love makes you feel like anything is possible.... Continue Reading →
