    Musings: An Unpoular Opinion

    I don’t want to date my best friend. via Pinterest There I said it. I didn’t have this mindset for the many years, while I was single. Even at times during my current relationship, I’ve thought that was how it was supposed to go.  Everyone says it. — I am so in love with my Best Friend. Blah. Blah. Blah. So, I thought it about it. Do I really want to date my best friend? Do I really want to be in love with my best friend? NO. I can see how many people would consider their best friend also their significant other. But I’ve decided those two roles are…

    Musings: My Love Language

    I was embarrassed by my love language. Website I was, but in all honesty, still slightly am. I know I shouldn’t be, but it makes me feel like a materialistic brat. Which we all know is only part of the time 😉 Are you familiar with The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman.? It has been popularized over the decades as a way to help relationships. My first real interaction with it was when the Bestest and her ex Boo were reading it. She raved about the book and ever since then it was in the back of my mind. J and I read it together last year, literally and…

    Musings: Bitterness is Unbecoming

    That was my tweet the other day. Later in the evening J asked who that ‘passive aggressive’ tweet was aimed at or what it was about? Pardon me, while I get on my soapbox. I’m tired of reading/seeing (mostly) women seem so bitter. Their posts, their status’, their tweets. Men do this too, but less frequently. But the majority I have seen lately are women, maybe I tend to follow more women than men, I’ll need to look into that. This isn’t to say that I do not see lots of awesome, positive posts…because, I do! Life sucks. Life’s hard. Everyone is going through something. We all get it. Even…

    In an Instant…

    …you make a decision, based on gut instinct.  That simple. via Pinterest There are moments in life, where you barely have a half of a second to make a decision. These moments and situations are generally ones that will probably shake you to your core.  We made the best decision we could, taking into account all issues at hand. It’s not something anyone ever wants to be involved with, but you go with your gut. Our gut said to help. I apologize for the vagueness in describing what actually happened, but I am writing this more as a reflection on what happened and how I am trying to cope and react.…

    Musings: Consistently, Inconsistent

    That title pretty much sums up my blogging routine lately… Via …and I’m actually okay with it. I was pumping out five posts a week. They were very automated, by that I mean I did the same thing week in, week out. As a reader, thanks for sticking around – whatever your intentions may be. I’d love to think people come here to see what I’m up too and genuinely be happy for me, or just for a decent read. The realist in me knows that’s not why all people come to my little part of the blogisphere. Those that come here with ill intentions are welcomed to keep their…

    A Misunderstood Happy

    Sometimes I feel that I give off too much of a happy vibe. I’m not sure why this accidental pic seems fitting for this post, but it does. If you were to peruse my Book of Face or Instagram, you’d think I live a pretty happy life. Or so I’ve been told… Which I do, I won’t argue that. But also, I don’t ever want it to be misconstrued that I walk around with my head in the clouds and am happy about every single thing in my life. Because, I am not. I am the first one to admit that I keep my emotions under lock and key. Yes,…

    My Confidence Gap

    Confidence or lack thereof? I had every intention of doing a Five Things Friday post, but after a conversation with J yesterday (one of a few) I couldn’t shake my thoughts on this subject.  What is confidence? I’m not sure I even have this answered in my own head or thoughts. Sorry if this post seem slightly incoherent, my thoughts are all over place, and I’m trying to figure out my feelings as I write this post.  If you watched the Mindy Project this week, then you’ll understand why our original conversation started. After the episode ended, I made the statement “I am not that confident.” J seemed to think…

    2015: The Game Plan

    Well, f@%k, I don’t really have one… Celfie, just because I didn’t have much else to add… But, as I sit here today, Tuesday, January 27th I feel like I might need to start one. I’m a 31 year old woman, functioning perfectly (adequately might be a better word) in my life, steady income, training for a marathon, living with my boyfriend and his daughter (part-time)…but something still feels off. I have found the balance of things that make me happy and doing things with our new little family, but I still feel slightly lost. I feel as though I don’t have anything passionate I can talk about. You know…
