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

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

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

October

Has it really almost been a month since I published a blog post? I'm sorry, y'all. October has me in its snare again. Every year I get weird. I get sad, depressed, angry and pull inward. I call it cocooning. I sort of wrap myself up in my apartment and don't want to talk. There's… Continue reading October

Thrive where you are planted

Often over the past two years I sometimes found myself questioning why things went down the way they did. I have had times of quietly (sometimes not so quietly) demanding why God/The Universe/The Creator dumped a steaming pile of shit in my lap that I was solely in charge of cleaning up. Why suddenly at… Continue reading Thrive where you are planted

Taking a stroll down Blog Memory Lane

A funny thing happened today.  I got a notification that my Single & Selfish Facebook page had a couple of new views.  So I opened my WordPress App and took a look at the numbers.  Whoa Nelly!  Someone....or a couple of someone's had taken a DEEP Dive into my blog.  They read almost 30 blog… Continue reading Taking a stroll down Blog Memory Lane

Make a wish!

My sister said something to me last weekend when we were birding just outside Houston at Brazos Bend State Park (where I took this photo) that has stuck with me.  She said that it's been a lot of fun watching me learn how to live again. I've sat with that all week.  I have learned… Continue reading Make a wish!

The Art of Doing Nothing

the ability to do nothing really is an art. Many of my friends have small kids, or even babies. I still see myself as the woman who has small children most of the time too. When I envision my life, the life of Wendi, I see my kids at various ages and development, so there… Continue reading The Art of Doing Nothing
