More Than This

I can’t believe this day is finally here! This blog, the one I started while already on my celibacy journey, has blessed me so much! It’s been read by men, women and even inspired a younger woman to continue and stand firm in her journey. I am glad. God is good. And it’s time to move forward. While celibacy is part of my journey, … Read More More Than This

It’s Time to Make a Shift

For the last few months I’ve been anticipating a shift. I’ve been writing this blog for ~6 years and it’s time to level up! Originally this blog was about celibacy and waiting and while I’m still on my (LONG) celibacy journey this blog has become much more. So much so that I’m changing the name of my blog. While single-and-waiting.com will still point to … Read More It’s Time to Make a Shift

Purposely Designed

There are plenty of things I want to do with my life. If I listed them all it would probably make your mind go tilt. Oftentimes I feel like I don’t have enough time to accomplish it all – learning 2 more languages, pursuing some out of the box business endeavors, and courageously daring to live a life better than my wildest dreams. One … Read More Purposely Designed

Who Is Going To Take Care Of Me?

So this is a pretty vulnerable post but here goes. During this pandemic I’ve been trying to keep anxiety at bay, stay safe, and navigate this new (long) but temporary normal. I keep hearing stories about how people have fought Covid19 and won! Some have fought it with loved-ones helping them along the way but then there are others who live alone and have … Read More Who Is Going To Take Care Of Me?

Study What’s Real

Oftentimes we find ourselves in many different kinds of relationships. Some work for us and others don’t. Because of the complexities of relationships, sometimes it’s difficult to tell what’s real from what’s real nice but not a good long-term match. Over the course of the last week, I’ve heard a sermon and read a devotional that further illustrate this point – it’s only through … Read More Study What’s Real

Social Distancing

I’d be lying if I said my anxiety wasn’t all the way turnt up! Between navigating this new normal along with work stress (I work in public education) and the stress associated with having a chronically ill loved one, I’ve had moments when I haven’t been my best. But one thing I am learning is to give myself some grace and I am asking … Read More Social Distancing

Let There Be Light

I used to live in the dark. I bought dark furniture, I felt safest in dark rooms….and I lived in a room without a window that let the outside world in. I felt safer that way, protected even, and as long as I was in there, there was no way anyone could get me. Once I began to transform, I no longer found safety … Read More Let There Be Light

The Difference Between Sex & True Intimacy

I used to think sex was the only way to intimacy. When I was having sex, the most enjoyable part was the physical contact I had with the other person. My skin on his, our bodies pressed together, and the vulnerability of it all. Now that I’ve been celibate for some time and have learned to enjoy intimacy outside of sex, I’ve realized that … Read More The Difference Between Sex & True Intimacy

Holiday Single

Yesterday I had conversations with two different people about what it’s like to be single during the holidays. Both discussions were centered around companionship or a lack-thereof. After spending many holidays single and even alone, I’ve managed to come up with some ways that have helped me get through and even enjoy the holidays. Here’s what I’ve done that has worked for me… On … Read More Holiday Single
