Today, I sat alone. I went to go watch my kids perform with their choir for the spring recital. At first, there were plenty of empty seats. A few family here and there. But in a matter of minutes, the audience was filling up with couples, families, friends, and grandparents. Surrounded by groups, I sat … Continue reading Today, I Sat Alone
What the Millennials and Gen Z need to realize about their #relationshipgoals
I had recently gone through a season of bitterness. For all the wrongs I see in the world, in my life, and in myself. It took awhile to process my bitterness and this poem is the outcome.
The biggest challenge I struggle to this day..The one thing that makes me doubt everything that happened in my marriage, is whether or not I truly am the one to be blamed for everything that occurred. If I had to stand outside my life and view things objectively, I would tell myself that no matter … Continue reading Speak Your Truth
Yesterday on Sunday, April 21, 2019, I have decided to commit to a year of no dating. For the past year and half, I had been actively dating (on and off). When I first started dating, a lot of them were very negative experiences. Guys who just wanted sex. Guys who would ghost. Guys who … Continue reading Committing to Growth – No Dating for a Year

This time, it will be a thousand times better. He should have done all that the first time.. Don't let him treat you like … Continue reading “This time…”
When I left my ex, I did not have the time to say, "I can't." I had to just DO. I didn't care what it was. I just knew that if I didn't do SOMETHING, it would be game over for me and my kids. We'd be homeless. We'd have nothing to eat. It would … Continue reading Change Your Focus
Let's be real. Single momming is exhausting. Having a partner and then suddenly doing it on your own is scary. There are some really hard falls that are hard to get back up from. Failure takes a whole new meaning. Failure means homelessness. Failure means not having food to eat. And I'll be honest when … Continue reading So?
A trend that I see often when I connect with other women is that their past is given WAY too much power. The funny (but it's not funny) thing is, the first significant event that they share with me is more recent. And when I help them realize that THAT point in time still isn't … Continue reading Don’t Give Your Past So Much Power
