Quarantine Chronicles: Special Edition

Today, I watched along as one of my closest friends married the love of her life, via Facebook live. In the midst of her and her love vowing their hearts and souls to one another, I was overcome with emotion. All of them. I felt the spirits of other brides who are weathering this unprecedentedContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Special Edition”

Quarantine Chronicles: Dating During a Global Pandemic

When I met my partner last September, at Dragon Con in Atlanta, I really wasn’t thinking that less than 7 months later we’d be navigating our relationship and a global pandemic… I mean don’t get me wrong, accepting a swig from his random Pineapple juice bottle filled with (I don’t even know what alcohol) wasContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Dating During a Global Pandemic”

One Year Later…

Today I’m taking a little break from skincare to talk about something that’s been on my mind lately. It’s been almost year since I blew up my whole life, and in that time I have been able to reconnect with the person I missed so dearly: Myself. Stepping out over a cliff, not knowing ifContinue reading “One Year Later…”

Trauma

Trauma is bullshit. Anyone who tells you otherwise is dumb. There’s nothing beautiful or redemptive about trauma. There’s no strength in trauma. It just is; it’s trauma. It’s complex, and simple, but nothing more. The strength is what comes after the trauma. It starts when you finally are able to muster up what little strengthContinue reading “Trauma”

Left To Say

Silence surrounds us now. Where once words gushed through our mouths, flowing one on top of another, to be heard, to be understood. We wish we could unhear, wish we could go back to being dumb, as now we are mute. What’s there left to say? What’s there left to know? Are words even necessaryContinue reading “Left To Say”

Letting Go

It’s literally a question as old as time: How do we let go of things, even when we don’t want to? I would suppose that boundaries are a good preemptive measure. But who—at any age or emotional maturity level—is actually an expert at setting and maintaining all their boundaries? (If you are one of thoseContinue reading “Letting Go”

Sight

This week I decided to share a little something–kind of like a poem– I wrote! Sight As I look, What do I see? Darkness is too simple a word. It’s more liken to, the depths of all blackness. I’m at the bottom of a great cavern, where no light can penetrate. I turn and IContinue reading “Sight”

Intentionally, Unintentional.

Per what we’ve covered in the last few blog posts, I have very little idea about what I’m doing with my life; and that includes my dating life. This is partially due to the fact that a little over 7 months ago, my relationship of 2 years ended. I’ve been pretty candid about what allContinue reading “Intentionally, Unintentional.”

Health?

“Does this spark joy?” – Marie Kondo For the past 6 months of my life, I have been working hard to become “healthy”. That is such a broad statement so let me break it down. I have been working to identify unhealthy people, situations and emotions, and then rectify them by either saying goodbye orContinue reading “Health?”

To The Girl Who Lost Herself (But is Ready to be Found)

You start to feel invincible, like nothing could ever hurt you again. Like the trauma of your past will never again rear its ugly head in your dreams. It didn’t take me long to become addicted to that feeling. This is for the one who hasn’t been herself lately, and not in the cliche, Instagram inspirationalContinue reading “To The Girl Who Lost Herself (But is Ready to be Found)”
