Rewrite: Prologue

Have you ever thought about rewriting your life from a different perspective? Quite frequently I fantasize about the past and how I’d change it if given access to a time machine. I’m well aware this isn’t a healthy place to dwell. “The past is the past” and all that. Which is why I was surprised... Continue Reading →

The Greatest Adventure

I mentioned in my previous post, Wherever You Go, You Take Yourself With You, that my friend Alanna and I had started doing some mini-writing workshops to help get our creative juices flowing, and I thought I’d share another product of one of our sessions on the blog. This one was in response to the... Continue Reading →

Reminders

A year ago this week I was nestled on the edge of the Appalachian mountains just north of Stanardsville, VA in a luxury yurt trying to unplug from the world and single-handedly repair whatever had gone wrong in my relationship with my ex. I wrote in my journal every day that week, analyzing his moods... Continue Reading →

Is This My Love Story?

This Grey’s Anatomy tribute to Lexie and Mark popped up on my Facebook timeline this morning, and because I’m a sucker for tragic love stories, I watched it. From 2010 to 2015, I was a dedicated Grey’s Anatomy fan. I binged through the seasons that had already aired, had my favorite “ships,” and sobbed during... Continue Reading →

I Didn’t Expect The Loneliness

After the break-up, I expected the grief. At this point, I’m well acquainted with the stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I know they’re not some linear timeline, but instead a twisting cycle that can seemingly have no end, until suddenly, it doesn’t hurt so much anymore. I expected this, and prepared for it....

What you didn’t know is that before I took a temporary break for website designing, I’d been struggling to write here on the blog for a few months.... Continue Reading →

The Truth About Long-Term, Long-Distance Relationships

Long distance relationships suck. There’s a certain level of freedom that you can fool yourself into believing is kind of a cool benefit of not having your significant other around all the time. And then there’s the fact that when you do see each other, it’s just one giant extended date. Like even sitting on... Continue Reading →

Why You Should Be Your Own Valentine

Welcome to February—the Season of Love! Or as I like to call it, “The Make Sure You’ve Validated Your Worth Through a Relationship” time of year. But seriously though, everyone makes February about either couples’ romance or “Singles’ Awareness.” All the dating websites and apps promotions are in full swing, and every ad I see...

Love Ruins Your Life

In watching the latest episode of Once Upon a Time (episode 407 “The Snow Queen”), I heard a quote that resonated with me. Will Scarlett, originally part of the Merry Men says in response to Robin Hood’s question about his heart-wrenching efforts for his True Love being worth it, “Mate, if you find someone you...
