This is going to be gross

Screenshot from https://pin.it/3iTYV25 on Pinterest I warned you. This is going to be a gag-fest if you’re single and salty. Maybe that should have been my monicker instead of Single & Selfish. I digress...if you are one of my people who is anti love and anti relationship- which is totally ok!! You do you, Boo-Boo;… Continue reading This is going to be gross

A First Date, Sheep & Loaves of Beautiful Bread

Every time I start to seriously join a dating site I get the vapors. Not gassy, exactly...but, I get really anxious. It's not a fun feeling. Putting yourself out there, waiting to see if you're good enough. Feeling like a sheep...or as one of my oldest friend says "Sheeple". We select our finest photos, write… Continue reading A First Date, Sheep & Loaves of Beautiful Bread

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. It felt as though giving a piece of my heart to this person… Continue reading Is vulnerability a dirty word?

Lessons from the rear view

If you've been around here for long you might remember one of my very early blog posts back in 2017 that was about Gaslighting.

Another scar….

I've written before that someday I'd like to get a tattoo that reads "Scars are like birthmarks but with better stories". Scars are funny.  Some are on the outside, some are on the inside.  Some scars heal and lighten on their own, and some scars are dark, rippled, puckered and pronounced forever.  We often don't… Continue reading Another scar….

My Man, Johnny Walker

Day after tomorrow is the big day! Hazel the Hip gets her official eviction and I get a brand new hip joint and socket.  Queue the ticker tape parade, ribbons, dancers and marching band. I purposely went on a dating hiatus, deactivated my dating apps, focused on myself and my body, preparing my mind for… Continue reading My Man, Johnny Walker
