What is stopping you from saying what you want to say?
From doing what you want to do? From having what you want to have?
From loving who you want to love? Continue reading “Why The Hell Not?”
Smile and remember to NEVER let other people dim your light by projecting their own insecurities on you.
Just because someone you care about is all dark and twisty inside doesn’t mean that you have to be too. That’s not going to help anything or anyone.
Stand true in who you are and know that not everyone can handle it.
No matter how capable they may appear to be, sometimes you’re just too bright for them and that’s okay… those aren’t your people.
Eyes on the prize.
KEEP SMILING. KEEP SHINING.
I’m going to be 30 in a few days. 30 years old, it’s hard to believe. It feels like these past 10 years have flown by. To be honest with you, I’ve always felt older. I’ve always been one of the youngest people in every room most of my adult life. So NO, I’m not freaking out about hitting the big 3-0 like a lot of people keep asking. I’m actually excited.

Yes; just little ol’ me, my bookbag, and small suitcase sat in a full size, blacked out Yukon on my drive to the airport today.
Yes, it costs about double the price of a regular Uber.
Something some people might think is crazy, shit…there was a time I thought it was ridiculous too! But there’s a big mindset lesson here so read on…. Continue reading “Why I Pay Extra for Uber Black”
“Skinny fat”… it’s a thing. It’s a thing no one thinks is a problem… and for some, maybe it’s not…but for me it was a BIG problem.
I was always sick.
I had no energy.
I had zero strength.
I could eat more than most grown men I knew but never gained a pound.
I remember seeing the picture on the left right after it was taken and being embarrassed (see bottom of post). That “skinny minnie” look everyone always said they were so jealous of was NOT how I wanted to look. Not even a little bit… but I didn’t know anything else was possible.
After many years of rapidly losing weight, never feeling good, more doctors appointments than I can count, passing out several times in public because my body shut down, and more hospital stays than I cared to have in a lifetime, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Continue reading “Always Sick…”
Sometimes I tell myself it’s silly. That I’m totally ridiculous to be this strong, independent, forward thinking woman and still get flutters in my heart when I think of what might be my happy ending.
Happy ending. Doesn’t that sound silly?
I mean, it might but I have to admit, I believe in it. My soul longs for it. I can feel it in my bones that it is out there.
Don’t get me wrong, I know life is not a fairy tale in the typical sense of the word but I choose to believe that my version of it exists. Continue reading “Romance”
Big Fat Confession Time: I’ve been drowning.
These past 10 days, I have felt like I’ve been fighting to keep my head above water.
It’s like no matter what I plan or do, my head just has NOT been in the game, at all. Maybe for a few hours of the day but not my normal, “balls to the walls, crank out more work in 8 hours than most people do in a week” sort of way.
Which bothers the fuck out of me. It makes me feel like a fraud. It makes me feel like I’m failing. But when I stop and look at the 30,000 foot view, I’m still killing it.
Let me explain; Continue reading “Drowning”
