So you love him, but you don't trust him? You'll share your body with him, but you won't let him into your innermost thoughts? You say he's different from the rest, and yet you still compare him to every man who's hurt you? How does that work? I know the first few lines insinuated that it's women … Continue reading A Personal Look at Insecurity
The past is the past, right? It can't be changed, though it can be recollected. Memories are all we have to link us to our history outside of whatever physical consequences we managed to carry into the present. Tangible or not, it doesn't matter. A past is something we share with everyone and no one. So, why keep … Continue reading Letting Go of Baggage
When I was a little girl, I remember seeing my mom working in the kitchen almost every night putting together a meal for my then stepfather.

Understand who they are and where they're … Continue reading That Moment When…
I'm never one to put all of my business in the street, but I am willing to share this: I am afraid to fail. Where this random fear came from I don't know, but it's always been there, lingering in the dark recesses of my already overactive imagination. The infamous "What if?" question has been … Continue reading Standing in Fear
Walk in faith, don't stand in fear.This is one of the hardest life lessons to learn, but so necessary.
My deepest apologies to my followers, old and new. I haven't been writing much up here, thanks to my ever demanding job on the bottom rung on the retail corporate ladder.
