My heart breaks for all the things you won’t be a part of

January 5, 2019

I was recently reminded that the baggage we carry around eventually has a way of bringing us to our knees. Sometimes, our knees buckle immediately.  Most times though, this is a gradual process. Our shoulders roll forward under the weight, which goes by unnoticed. After awhile, our back begins to ache; our hand instinctively begins to rub the site of […]

Take Care of Yourself This Holiday Season

December 5, 2018

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Friends, family, holiday cheer. The world looks brighter, your heart is fuller and there’s a little bit more of a natural bounce in your step. As many have said before, ’tis the season. While so many talk of the joy and beauty of the season, I have found that there isn’t enough […]

What I mean when I say I miss you

September 22, 2018

Long distance, sigh, need I say more? I was born in another country than the one I currently live in, so for as long as I can remember long distance relationships and friendships have been such a big part of my life. Whether it was my immediate family, the friends that I have known since childhood, or the biggest pieces […]

Women, instead of tearing each other down, build each other up! 

July 24, 2018

“When you admire something about another woman, tell her. Get into the habit of lifting each other up.”-Unknown There are a few things I’ve realized as I get older, and possibly wiser, possibly. One of those very things is the realization that society has a way of pitting women against each other, for reasons I cannot even begin to understand. […]

If I’m Being Honest, I Don’t Love Myself All Of The Time

July 4, 2018

But that isn’t what is most important; the journey to self love isn’t linear. Too often, individuals hear about the importance of self-love, self-esteem and self worth. What is more, the phrases continue with phrases such as: -You can’t give love to others until you love yourself.  -The relationship you’re in with yourself is the most important.  -Love must start […]

ego has no place in a relationship

June 15, 2018

Love.  Honesty.  Trust.  Respect.  Patience. Commitment.  Each of the traits listed above, in my opinion, are the traits which every healthy relationship, platonic or romantic, should have. It was my belief until a few days ago that should a relationship have those, it would succeed. However, I now wonder if I was right. Recently, I asked a few of my […]

strong women
independent women still want to be loved

May 28, 2018

“I want to be an independent woman who falls in love, finds a great partner for her lifetime, has kids and kind of does it all. I’d like to have it all” -Jennifer Love-Hewitt strong women I was raised by two women that had, for a very long time, been single mothers. Other than my grandfather and my uncle, there […]

sometimes i wonder, do you think of me at all?

May 10, 2018

I’m not proud to admit it, but I think of you at least once a day. Have you aged well in the thirteen years since I’ve seen you?  Are your eyes still the same wonderful, rich green that look like they can see into your soul?  Most importantly, do you think about me at all?  This year was the first […]

i stopped comparing myself to others and happiness followed

April 15, 2018

not where i want to be The last two months have been emotionally challenging. The sudden realization that I am twenty-six years old and yet to have a college degree. I don’t live in my own apartment and I don’t have a job out “in the real world”. I’m one of the oldest students living in my residence and it […]

i don’t want smooth sailing, i want to weather the storm

April 7, 2018

I overheard a conversation over the last week that I admit was the inspiration behind this article. A friend was asked to describe her ideal relationship and partner and her answer was as follows: “I want that whirlwhind, fairytale relationship. The be-all and end-all, take your breath away, time slows down kind of love. The ones that you read about […]

love made me a better woman

February 26, 2018

“When a woman is loved correctly, she becomes ten times the woman she was before” I have been single since I was seventeen years old; a little by choice, but mostly out of fear. You see, the last man that I was with didn’t treat me the way I deserved: the lies, putting me down, choosing me second to others- […]

the likely reason your girlfriend doesn’t love you back

January 24, 2018

because I didn’t love myself, I couldn’t love you and that was a large reason why our relationship failed. We’ve all been there: constantly checking your phone to see if they’ve texted you. The butterflies in your stomach flutter relentlessly when they’re around and my gosh, when they look at you, the world spins on its axis. What I’m talking […]
