Loving To Be Alone

Loving To Be Alone
2017 was a year of huge change in my life, but it didn’t seem like it was going to be that way back at the very beginning of the year. When the year started I was still dealing with crippling anxiety that was put into place by the disintegration and deceit of my three year... Read more »

How Bad Is Lying, Really?

How Bad Is Lying, Really?
From little white lies to big honkin’ lies, everybody does it.  It’s an age old art.  Some people are so good at lying that they can’t even tell what the truth is anymore. A lot of times we lie assuming that we are protecting the other person, but in reality, we are usually protecting ourselves.... Read more »

It's Like You're A Real Adult!

It's Like You're A Real Adult!
More times than I can count now, whenever someone finds out that I own a house (two houses, even), I get the following response… “Wow, it’s like you’re a real adult.”  I know that it’s said in jest and meant to be a funny thing, even a compliment, but I’m not going to lie, I... Read more »

Let Your Truth Be Heard

Let Your Truth Be Heard
Silence.  We grew up being told, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”  It’s a motto I’ve lived most of my life by, and I really do strive to take the path of least resistance most of the time.  I really do want my life to focus on lifting people up,... Read more »

Escapism... Is it Good or Bad?

Escapism... Is it Good or Bad?
As someone who lives in a world of entrepreneurship, I often hear discussion about “wasting time” and how people don’t watch TV, or go to movies, or do anything that could be considered “counter productive,” unless it’s something that is teaching you how to run your business (i.e. the umbrella of “personal development”).  I feel...

Suddenly Single... Not a Little Shop of Horrors Duet

Suddenly Single... Not a Little Shop of Horrors Duet
I wanted to write a post to all of the thirty-something people out there who suddenly may find themselves single in this crazy world of poor communication, easily offended people, and horrible online dating situations… You are not alone.  It is a tough age range in which to be suddenly on the market again.  As...

Live Life In Spite of Fear

Live Life In Spite of Fear
I’m not going to lie… my own mortality is probably one of my biggest fears.  If I wasn’t an outgoing person, I’d probably be agoraphobic, acrophobic, aquaphobic, claustrophobic… and, let’s be honest, I probably am most of those things (ok, I am).  Most of us are.  The thing is, we aren’t those things to the...

Tough Love

Tough Love
Anger.  So many of us house soooo much anger within ourselves that it leads to poor sleep, stress, binge eating, ended friendships, and sometimes even physical harm to oneself… amongst so many other things it can cause.  We feed ourselves with horrible stories through watching the news, reading articles, and even browsing Facebook.  We pick...

Crazy Courageousness

Crazy Courageousness
Last week I asked this question to my Facebook friends… “What’s one the craziest things you’ve ever done that ended up having a positive outcome for you?”  I received a TON of responses that impressed me and inspired me!  I asked this question, because a lot of people get these “crazy ideas” and never act...
