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

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

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

This is the time of year when everyone is happy and joyous. It’s also the time of year when people announce engagements, babies, and new boos.

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

Deliverance

What if deliverance was calling your name? On Saturday I was at a restaurant waiting for a yummy pizza. About 20 minutes earlier I was told the pizza wasn’t ready so to kill time I walked around a bit, returned to the restaurant and found a seat near the window. While sitting there I saw the cutest baby! She kept smiling at me! And … Read More Deliverance

Ring

Years ago after I’d gotten out of a relationship I decided to give my ex a different ring tone. It was different than all of the other calls coming though because I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss the call. I subconsciously waited for the phone to ring. It never did and I never heard that ringtone again. Sometimes it can take a … Read More Ring

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

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

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

The Butterfly Effect

For the last several months I’ve felt like butterflies have been following me. Especially over the summer. I’d walk outside and a butterfly would cross in front of me. Sometimes little white butterflies and sometimes big butterflies – they were so big I thought I was seeing things! Then, there were several times when I’d find butterflies at my feet. They were everywhere! Butterflies, … Read More The Butterfly Effect
