Blogabout

I am a solo mama to one spunky toddler and two beagle pups. I have spent nearly the entire past year, plus some, reinventing myself due to different circumstances. The lessons have been many, and my wish is for at least one person to benefit from something they may read on the pages to follow. Please start HERE if you are on your own journey of self-discovery.

We Were Never Really Friends

Dear Direct Sales Mommies… Please Stop!Not Everyone

I see you. Mostly on Facebook, but I also sought you out on Blogs, Instagram, and such. You are “peddling” your products, and pushing them on your family and friends. My question is, HOW do you sleep at night? Continue reading

I’ll love my body when…

We now know happiness is the precursor to success and not the other way around. We’ve all said, “I’ll be happy when (fill in the blank).” However, happiness isn’t a destination. It is a moment-to-moment decision that directly controls the moment-to-moment choices you make.

If we accept the above premise for truth, then why would we believe that we should only love our bodies when they look, feel, or perform a certain way? Continue reading

A Gift for the Single Moms on Mother’s Day

When I was pregnant with my child, the definitive outcome of single mama-hood loomed as the first Mother’s Day approached. The realization that there would be no flowers or gifts from the person who helped to create this life was downright sad. Continue reading

The Great, Good, and *gasp* Lonely

Previously I had mentioned that I am extremely content with my status as single mom, and off the dating market by choice. Here is the article about my desire to not share my life right now.

That said, even though I am superhuman as a single mom, the human part does creep out at times, and I do get lonely. We are social beings. Companionship and intimacy are important.

The following are the most common occurrences when the song, “All by myself, don’t want to be all by myself…” kicks in. Continue reading

Whip it, Whip it Good

burlapThe evening has come, my darling is asleep and it is time for the hour I have been waiting for. This is the hour where I can take all that I suppressed throughout the day and release the pain, judgment, and shame. I carefully undress and grab the garment that is assigned for this hour. As I adorn the scratchy material, I go to my closet and grip the leather-bound tool to administer my assignment. Continue reading

Nerium International: No genuine product or service

11157349_10205536328279007_5411738039985331916_oThe first of the SEC warnings of a potential scheme is the lack of a genuine product or service. Let’s break that down even more.

But I Don’t Wanna Share…

Sharing is caring. We all know that. On the other side of the coin we are also told that boundaries are important. Great, another aspect in our life to find balance…

I recently “fired” myself from dating. As in, I took myself off the market even though a significant other is still absent from my life. Without over sharing, I had a short relationship that ended due to the fact that my boundaries were not respected. I’m a big believer that without respect and trust, a potential relationship is doomed. Continue reading

Be Contagious

This story begins in a nail salon. No, it isn’t about the infections you can potentially contract by going to a nail salon after shaving your legs. Instead, I would like to share how a routine trip to the salon, turned into something so beautiful, I left with chills covering my prickly legs. Continue reading
