Single & Selfish…What I’ve learned

As I round the bases on the third year of being single – yes, it's been three years. I know! I can't believe it either. Next month, November 16th will be the third anniversary of the day my marriage imploded.

Is vulnerability a dirty word?

Vulnerability. I had an interaction with someone I care about recently that made me feel really vulnerable. It basically made me feel like my heart was outside of my body and exposed to the elements and it was oh so very unprotected.

What a difference a Year makes

"Women are like tea bags, you never know how strong they are until they're in hot water" For the past year, the same song has been on loop in my head.  Not the whole song, just the chorus, and not all day, just in the first quiet moments of the morning.  The song is Ooh… Continue reading What a difference a Year makes

Learning to Adult

You might wonder, "Wendi, how didn't you know that your husband hadn't been working for two months? How didn't you notice that the bills weren't getting paid?" I'll tell you, because I did what so many other women...and men do, we leave the finances, bank accounts, saving and bill paying up to our partners.  Why?… Continue reading Learning to Adult
