Self Care

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

The Amazing Power of Women

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

When life gives you lemons, ask for tequila!

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!

VD is upon us….again.

Oh Valentine's Day.  Here you are again - you little Bastard.  You may remember the photo above from a post from January of last year.  It spoke to me then because it was a metaphor for my heart.  My tender, fragile heart surrounded in spikes to keep everyone out to ensure I wouldn't get hurt… Continue reading VD is upon us….again.

Self care

As a society, it's my opinion that we don't practice enough self-care.  Especially those of us who are single and hustling every day to make that money, be responsible grown ups, pay the bills, go to jobs and somewhere in there nurture our important relationships. Where in there is time to nurture ourselves? Lately I've… Continue reading Self care

Forgiveness

The word forgiveness is at the forefront of my thoughts today. It's still early on this lazy Saturday morning.  I've walked the dog, did the yoga and am settled in with a cup of coffee and my laptop to do some journaling.  Then I realized something. I'm not angry anymore. Tomorrow will be February 3rd,… Continue reading Forgiveness

Goals

When I ended my marriage over two years ago, over time I found freedom.  I could make my own choices without consulting anyone else and could set new goals and challenges for myself.  One of those goals was to do yoga. I used to be a gym rat with my ex-husband.  We would go to… Continue reading Goals

Feelings, Man!

The past several months have been some of the most fun of my entire life.  I mean it's been a combination of How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Exhale and Sex & The City (The first one, not that awful sequel) all rolled into one.  I've had dates, I've made friends, I've made Friends with… Continue reading Feelings, Man!

Let… Continue reading Sexy Saturday Night (with instructions)

The First Casualty

I read an article this morning, I'll link it below. Eat, Pray, Make Love: Why you absolutely must have shameless sex after your divorce. Maybe I was looking for validation that I'm not a bad person, that I'm not abnormal, that I'm not selfish (in the negative connotation of that word) and that I'm not… Continue reading The First Casualty
