Found Me

I’ve been hiding and I’m finally ready to show my face. If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time it may seem like I’m open and vulnerable like this all of the time. But the truth is, I’m not. I’m super private and at times, I’m even reluctant to show my face. Why? I don’t know. I think I’ve always felt … Read More Found Me

Delay is Not Denial

As I watch virtual graduations, weddings, and birthdays I’m reminded of how precious life’s moments are. I’m also saddened by the fact that so many aren’t able to celebrate with loved ones. At the same time, I’m reminded that delay is not denial. I’ve heard the above saying for years but it rings true now more than ever. So many lives have been put … Read More Delay is Not Denial

One Hundred

This is my hundredth blog post! Please take a moment to celebrate with me! In this blog I’ve shared 100 ways God has transformed me over the last 4 years. There were times when I was reluctant to press publish or didn’t share on my social media pages because my posts were so vulnerable and so raw. But now, vulnerability comes more easily and … Read More One Hundred

Strong Women

A lack of strength is not a prerequisite for love. I started writing this post in the middle of the night. On Fb the day before I saw a picture of my former boss with her husband. This woman is strong! She’s the kind of woman you respect and follow. I literally left one job and went to another because of her leadership. I … Read More Strong Women

Accept The Blessing

I have a really hard time accepting help. For so long I’ve had to go at it alone and because of this, I’m used to doing things by myself. After years of operating this way and slowly transitioning into roles that require greater support, I found myself burnt out realizing I should have asked for help. Lately I’ve been trying to unlearn this. When … Read More Accept The Blessing

Going Before You – Working In Your Favor

A couple of months ago my coworker and I were meeting at a school for a writer’s workshop training. I walked to the 3rd floor. My coworker was in a wheelchair so this required a different level of planning. The space was small. There were a bunch of tables, chairs, and even more people. It was stuffy and crowded. Although there was an elevator … Read More Going Before You – Working In Your Favor

The Pretty Blues

I used to be so insecure. I literally wanted to look like someone else. I’d look at other women and think, wow she’s pretty. If I only had hair like hers or a body like hers, confidence like hers, clothes like hers… then, I would feel good about myself. It was a constant breaking down of myself through comparison, and self-harm. It took a … Read More The Pretty Blues

Dating While Celibate

Dating while celibate is hard. When you meet someone special, there’s a point in time where you may want to take things to the next level. You might feel like after doing so (by doing so I mean having sex) you’ll know if that is or could be your person. The problem with this scenario is it doesn’t work……if you’re celibate. You’re going to … Read More Dating While Celibate

Run Your Race

I ran my first 5K one month ago. I finished the race and realized it was something I enjoyed and wanted to do again. I was surprised how well I ran. I hadn’t prepared at all. I literally woke up and ran the race. It made me proud but it also made me think, how much better would my time be if I actually … Read More Run Your Race

Somebody’s Sleeping In My Bed

I’m the only one who sleeps in my bed. While I’ve been in this house, (it’ll be 6 years in August) no one but me has slept in my bed. Now, I’ve slept in a bed with a man at some point since I’ve lived here but I’ve made a conscious effort/decision not to allow any man to sleep in my bed. Let me … Read More Somebody’s Sleeping In My Bed
