So I cancelled my date with the guy last weekend. I also told him I wanted to go back to being just friends. I explained that he had opened my eyes to my inability to trust and the triggers (how I hate that word) that he spurred. He reluctantly agreed. How does one go about… Continue reading Bandaids over Bullet holes
Let's just change my name to Swoony McSwoonerton, shall we? Remember back in Middle School when you had a crush? A boy or girl who just seemed like the best thing since sliced bread and you admired them from afar and imagined what it would be like to have them like you back and go… Continue reading Crushing like a 15 year old
I know I've written plenty about how I just want to sleep alone in my bed with the remote control all to myself, snuggling with my cuddly puppy and being Ms. Independent, yada yada yada. I think I may have introduced you to Chewbacca, my Pekingese Shih-tzu who is both my best little furry bud… Continue reading The healing power of Animals
Hey you. Yeah, you. The one over there bleeding from your blood pumper chest hole where your heart used to be. Waking up daily thinking it was all just a dream only to in the very next moment have reality crash into you that the break up, the divorce, the separation, the end, really did… Continue reading There is an After
Little known fact, or maybe you already know it, I don't know, I don't live your life...I love personality quizzes. I also love podcasts. Combine the two and I'm one happy gal. The podcast I've been basically inhaling lately is Ologies. It's an interview style podcast where each guest is a specialist in some type… Continue reading Be Fearless
Today I am 48. Sometimes I get the birthday blues. Not this year. I always feel like a fool when I get birthday blues. I should be so grateful for another birthday! Especially as a cancer survivor, I should cherish every year older as a gift. That is exactly how I'm feeling today about my… Continue reading Birthday thoughts….
Can you ask for what you want? Can you speak your truth even if it's uncomfortable and awkward? I have been in a low key relationship for the past three months with a lovely man. Of course I am referring to Keanu. He is strong, capable, smart, funny and has a litany of other qualities… Continue reading Speaking your truth
Who doesn't need a hug once in a while from a soft, squishy teddy bear? When life gets to be a little bit too much how do you deal? When the atrocities of the world all get to be a little bit too heavy how do we reconcile that with our sense of gratitude? I… Continue reading Self Care
I have a confession. I can be.....an asshole. One of my Best Girlfriends is having a bit of a time. I won't say she's struggling, because she's not - she kicks ass at everything she touches, but she's admittedly got a lot of balls in the air. She's a Mom of some amazing tiny humans… Continue reading The Amazing Power of Women
So technically these are limes in the photo, but it was a photo on my camera roll that seemed to fit. Life man. Adulting, getting older. It all is a mixed bag of good, bad, indifferent, marginally suck-worthy and sometimes extra fabulous. A couple of things happened yesterday. I saw a new chiropractor and he… Continue reading When life gives you lemons, ask for tequila!
