I write this post because I have been on the receiving end of society's hate and backlash. But I also write this because I know that there are women out there that have felt the same back lash. I know that there are women out there too afraid to speak up, too afraid of not being judged. And I am here to tell you that you don't need to fear or be ashamed of who you are; you don't need to hate others in order to feel happy or loved. I am here to tell you that there is too much hate in the world and as women we need to stop fighting each other and start fighting for what really matters. Let's stand together, united!
Life is hard, isn't it? Many times things go wrong, like Murphy's Law, and sometimes we just lose ourselves in what we could have and should have done. Now, I'm writing this because I have been challenged in this life, to become a better person than I was. I have a past, who doesn't? It's [...]
Eventually, the heart begins to mend, to heal. Eventually, you begin to forget how you feel and it all starts going back to normal, perhaps not right away, like right after a hurricane, the destruction litters the streets.

There's one thing we always seem to overlook as we cut off people and delete friends from our list, and that is that maybe we are the toxic ones, not them. And I don't mean toxic like in Britney Spears' declaration of hot sexy men. We never think of ourselves as toxic. We think of [...]
Every once in a while we need to make time for ourselves, to be by ourselves and recharge. It's not selfish to do this because it's just you taking care of yourself. It's as simple and as complicated as that. I am an introverted extrovert, best of both worlds, but my introverted self likes to [...]
One of the toughest questions many have to face is, do we do what we can to make our family happy or what we need to do to make ourselves happy? For many the answer will be different and for some it will be the same. However, only one answer will help you on your [...]
Depression*. Such a heavy topic, but one that needs to be addressed. *This is a very real topic and there are real situations in this post that may trigger and or bother some. Please read with caution, understanding, and an open heart. I suffer from major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder. The only way [...]
"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to." "I don't much care where-" "Then it doesn't matter which way you go" I lost myself, that much I know. Reality sucks sometimes, it can hurt, but it can also [...]
Don't think of the time it's going to take, just do it and it will happen.
"Give yourself five minutes to be upset or angry or sad, then tell yourself 'can't change it' and go about your day." (My best friend wrote these words to me.) This morning I was a mess. I let myself think, my mind wander, dredge through a swamp of uncertainty. Every thought landed on the [...]
