So I made a big move last week. I went on a date. Considering my last blog post, it was a big deal. But I have to go back. Back to the day before the date. It started with a therapy session, like all good stories start with. I went in the intent to talk … Continue reading Like a Child
I still remember the moment I knew it was over. I was sitting in my car, after our last full conversation. Ben had told me he loved. He told me that he understood the connection we had. He told me he didn’t want to be with me. I asked him why. Why wasn’t our connection … Continue reading Second choice
I was sitting in my therapist's office, explaining to him why I push. I'm an advocate. I told him, as if that explained everything. And advocates are results-oriented. He responded. Yes!!

Recently, I was talking with a friend about old loves and moving on. It's interesting. I'm in a season where I'm getting renewed clarity about my life, primarily when it comes to men. It's like a vase that has broken and as I'm picking up the pieces of glass, I notice where the cuts are, … Continue reading Easy.
I should preface this post by saying that lately, I have gotten into the habit of bottling myself up. I'm one of those people who tends to put up a front. I put my best foot forward, rarely discussing what I'm really going through or how I'm feeling. But I got convicted by that … Continue reading A Week of Stretching
I still remember the conversation I had with my stepdad at 19. I had watched a boy I had fawned over for three years fall for someone else, a heart-breaking, soul-crushing spectacle that I wish I could have avoided. But I was on the mend, relieved to be finally okay when I sat across my … Continue reading All the Single Ladies (and men)
