Facts Vs Feelings

Lately in the midst of this pandemic I’ve found myself having to consciously introduce my feelings to the facts.

Has this ever happened to you? Unfortunately, as of late, it’s … Read More Facts Vs Feelings

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.

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

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

I’d have to pep-talk my way into accepting invitations, attending, … Read More Nothing Is Wasted

In books I’ve read in the past and especially in the one I’m reading now, I’ve realized your mate is your purpose partner. Whenever I meet someone I think about how the joining of our lives could impact the world. What could our joint purpose be? What can we do together? What world issues could our partnership conquer, solve, or impact? This may seem … Read More Purpose + Partner

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.
