The ever dividing line of politics

Every morning, I leave my apartment between 7:50-8:00am in order to make it to work by 8:30am and very rarely am I late. I take my coffee with me and listen to WDET on the way to catch up on news and current events. This morning, however I got stuck in the worst traffic due to an accident. So bad that I was an hour … Continue reading The ever dividing line of politics

The appearance 

Carving out time to write seems like it should be easy in my new world, but for some reason, I still don’t do it. Not because I don’t have the time, but I just don’t make the time. Why? Eh, probably avoidance, but we’ll see what we can do. Anyways, on to better topics. As a catch-up, I finally feel like the dust around me … Continue reading The appearance 

The greatness of me

I read a beautiful poem by Adrian Michael on his Instagram page the other day that resonated deeply with me, with my year, and all the things that are changing and shifting in my world: “She does what she needs to do to better herself. That phase of letting things, people and situation get the best of her was an old chapter. This chapter is … Continue reading The greatness of me

My relationship with….me

This post has been brewing around in my mind for the past couple of weeks, but I haven’t had the guts to really sit down and try and sort through it in writing. My relationship with myself has been a very long, very tumultuous road. And I don’t think I’m even half-way through. But when I pause and look back, I can see growth and … Continue reading My relationship with….me

Writer’s block

For the past several months, I’ve sat down at various times and pulled out the laptop, opened up my site and stared at a blank page for an hour, then meandered on to other social media in an effort to ignore the block in my head. I hate writer’s block. Mostly because my head will feel full (don’t laugh) and yet I can’t get anything out leaving … Continue reading Writer’s block

2015 The Experience – Q4 Recap

Oh, 2015 you were just a doll. I know it was a really rough year for a lot of people, and I’m not gonna sit here and say that my year was free of it’s own issues. But for the most part, the year treated me well and taught me so, so much about myself and the world around  me. Q4 kicked off with my … Continue reading 2015 The Experience – Q4 Recap

2016 – Explore

I can’t believe I’m already thinking about next year! I am SO on top of it! Well, not really. With my luck (and procrastination skills), this post probably won’t be up until June 2016. (note: I started this post in October 2015) The realization that I was in the 4th quarter of 2015 though shocked me. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone … Continue reading 2016 – Explore

Collaboration

Being the people-person that I am, I love the idea of working with people on projects. I’ve never really been an independent worker. I always do my best when I’m collaborating with others and that’s why I’ve decided to take some of things that I love and am passionate about and begin collaborating with others who share those same passions. I’m working one of my … Continue reading Collaboration

The never-ending body image war

This week has truly been a mind-bending, full-plate kind of week. Due to certain events that transpired last weekend, the topic of body image has been weighing heavily on my mind. I’ve written on this topic before, and of course, as a woman, it’s never far from my thoughts. What’s a bit different this time is the reason it’s on my mind was due to … Continue reading The never-ending body image war
