Let’s Get Lost

I used to find myself in situations where it felt as though I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. The feeling of being caught in something that I couldn’t get out of gave me anxiety and the feeling of claustrophobia. I was in a toxic relationship for 5+ years and felt as…

Love in Every Form

Below are some of favorite quotes about Love and my take on them. And although today is Valentine’s Day, everyday of the year should be treated like Valentine’s Day especially if there is someone or numerous people in your life that you Love. Don’t wait until February 14 to show your Love. “Through Love all…

Make

cre•ate: verb. bring (something) into existence I used to think that the stories, poems, characters and worlds that I thought up in my imagination were only for me. I locked them away in various journals, composition notebooks, flash drives and the right side of my brain, wondering one day if my world would ever make…

Depth

I’ve always been the type of person that’s in thought constantly. And every once in a while, with various moments in my life I find myself in deep thought. Deep thought has consumed me lately. Please don’t confuse over thinking to deep thinking. There is a huge difference. I’m at a time in my life…

Surrender

For the past week, I couldn’t find my house keys. I looked everywhere for them: the car, my jacket pocket, the basket for keys in the kitchen, outside in the yard. I even checked the numerous pockets in my purse, but I just couldn’t find them. After a day or two of looking, I just…

Talk

Authentic communication is getting harder to come by these days. You know the type of communication where an argument, heated debate or someone expressing their feelings isn’t pouring through a text message or messenger apps through social media. Don’t get me wrong, some people are better with their words written then they are orally. But…

30+ & Thriving

I love having insightful conversations with people. Conversations where the vibe is right, everyone is on the same page or even having a healthy debate without insults being thrown. And a lot of times those conversations happen randomly. Today my 9 year old had a basketball game and she invited one of her favorite teachers…

One day at a time

Over the past month and a half, my ankle has been in pain and swollen (on and off). I finally went to a specialist today and she worked her Hogwarts, Merlin, out of this world magic and it feels a thousand times better. While she was giving me my treatment, she began explaining to me…

Queen

As I sit here with my glass of wine and my bag of mini powdered Hostess donuts watching White Chicks, I actually have a tad bit of “Mom Guilt.” Moms know what I’m talking about but for the people who might be a little bit confused, it’s when a mom feels guilt or shame in…

Today you are you

For decades, I didn’t like my name. True story. I didn’t like that it was only 3 letters. I didn’t like that I never saw it on a key chain in a souvenir shop. I didn’t like that so many jokes were made about it (Tai, tie your shoe; Bow-tie; Tae-Bo). I didn’t like that…
