It’s not me, it’s you.

This is quickly becoming a new commonly used saying...in my head at least. But real talk - how many of you wish you could say this out loud to many of the people around you? I know someone who went on a date recently. The guy seemed nice enough and they had gotten together a couple ...

Something To Talk About

Hey Reader, If you've learned anything by now about me, I hope it's the fact I'm pretty raw and honest on this little space I call my blog. Tonight, I'm sharing a piece of my heart I don't think I've ever shared on here, so buckle up. ;) I went to a place I frequently go to, ...

Made For More

It's been a long day. I'm working on a minimal sleep, I've been in meetings throughout the day for a mix of business, personal, and volunteer work. My right eyebrow is currently twitching from stress and here I am, sitting in a Starbucks with the 30 minutes of personal time I have. Blogging. So much could ...

You’re Worth More

She was poetry in a world that was still learning the alphabet. I read this quote tonight and nodded. Boy have I felt that way lately. Have you, reader? For a while, I've been wearing rose-colored glasses. I've chosen to believe the lies over what I knew to be the truth. Why? For many reasons. The main ...

Turn Off The World

I turned off the world tonight. My phone was on, but was on silent. I responded to texts from friends, but I didn't give in to the pressure to always be available. Some people I let wait (and still haven't responded to) and I'm learning that it's okay. In our world of technology, there is this ...

Truth hurts. Apologies in advance.

It always amazes me how quick people can be to tear down your dream. If they feel threatened by it, they'll tell you it's not going to happen and that you should do something else. If they feel jealous of it, they'll try to make you feel bad for wanting to chase something so grand. And ...

Hidden Scars

Hidden scars. These are the scars no one sees because they're hidden deep beneath the surface. On the outside, we look fine, but on the inside, there is a wound so deep and memories so painful that few are even given the knowledge that these scars exist. People try to understand, but they fall short. They ...

A Letter From Singles

If you know someone who is in their twenties, thirties, forties, or more and is still single, this is for you. Let me say what every single person wishes they could say, but don't. Please stop. Maybe you got married young and are absolutely loving life. Or maybe you were desperate to get married and have a family. ...

Chase Passion, Not Perfection

For the last decade, my birthday has held more meaning than just another year. Each year, God will typically give me a "theme" for the year, a few months before my birthday. This year was different. This year, I didn't get a theme at all. My birthday came and went and I asked God, "What's my ...

Running The Race Of Freedom

Out of breath from running, I slowed down to a steady walk. I was halfway through the Trek Against Trafficking 5k and wasn’t sure if I had trained enough for this moment. My heart was pounding and I questioned if I’d be the last person to cross the finish line. Physically, I was tired and ...
