Content

Not content, but con-tent. I used to take offense if this label was used on me, it made me feel like I’m just here letting life pass me by. I now am okay with being content – what if I’m content because I am whole. I don’t know if I was born this way, but…

Until It Was More

Within minutes of getting to know each other it felt different. Living hours apart, the first few months were just by phone before we met in person, that wasn’t by choice though – our schedules were different and neither of us had the free time that would’ve been required. That didn’t keep us from talking…

I Can’t Always Be High

I’ve alwaye been told that me just being around makes people feel good; that I exude a good energy that can’t be described. You would think I take it as a compliment, right? And I do, for the most part. It’s a lie if someone told you it wasn’t dope to be able to do…

Lucky

How lucky are we to meet such a variety of different people in our life, each uniquely bringing a special gift for you. I know what you may be thinking… my ex gave me no gift – but what if even the bad is a gift. A gift that taught you a lesson or maybe…

That Person

A person that has such a richness in their soul that your soul feeds off it like a damn buffet that even though you are full – you keep going back A person that at times can feel like a massage to your soul, your heart and even deeper than a massage with a happy…

Gray

I’m going to start this with saying – my daughter, up until the age of about 7-8 could only think in black and white because she hadn’t developed the cognitive skills required to see both sides of an issue or situation. Fast forward to 11 and I’m introducing her to gray and that it’s okay….

M.

A sacred commitment to someone else; giving yourself to this person, trusting this person, having faith in this person.. the list goes on and then another list comes including effort, perseverance, discipline, sacrifice, loyalty, respect, selflessness. Then all of the above has to sit on top of a foundation that is filled with love, faith…

Hey you, teenage self – come here and read this!

If I could talk to my teenage self, the one thing I would say is be intentional. Intentional in all aspects of your life; from your daily interactions, to your job, to your relationships and family – absolutely EVERY aspect of your life. What do I mean by being intentional? In simple term, is it…

Half An Empath

What is an empath?   I best describe it as the entering another’s person’s feeling and emotions intuitively at times.  My therapist said it’s a horrible trait but one that you can’t help and takes a lot of work to manage (I hate work).   Think of a sponge – you absorb other’s emotion and…

Vulnerability

I recently read someone’s take on vulnerability and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. The irony that he wrote about vulnerability while being raw and true in the writing was vulnerable on it’s own. He took me through the reality of opening up and being rewarded by being looked at like you…
