I HAVE A FINITE AMOUNT OF PURE FIRE ENERGY

This is my first post in about two weeks, and I haven’t forgotten about my blog at all. It’s just that I have a finite amount of pure fire energy to work with. This pure fire energy is basically my creative fire. That twinge of inspiration that has enough umph to make me put what’s in my head, and heart, and soul, out into the physical world. I think human beings perhaps have varying levels of pure fire energy they can tap into at any time. But I know my limits, and I know what I have to give. Lately, this energy has been needed in other areas of my life. So my blog and podcast have been a bit abandoned, and that’s okay. Continue reading I HAVE A FINITE AMOUNT OF PURE FIRE ENERGY

3 WAYS I’VE TRIUMPHED AS A SINGLE WOMAN

This title doesn’t exactly capture the sentiment of this article, so let me clarify. I’m going to share specifically about three things I used to feel sorry for myself about as a single woman, but no longer attach a sad story to. Now, they’re just things that have nothing to do with me being single. Trust me, you’ll understand more once I get going. Continue reading 3 WAYS I’VE TRIUMPHED AS A SINGLE WOMAN

WHAT DO YOU REACH FOR WHEN YOU’RE FEELING EMPTY?

I treat this podcast episode as a space of semi-guilty confession, and admit to the things I reach for when I’m feeling empty and depleted. I think we all feel empty at times, and sometimes it’s easier to reach for something soothing than it is to just sit with the uncomfortable feelings. But right now I’m trying to do better. This episode is an invitation to join me in the human admittance of this very normal behavior, and to also perhaps try to just sit a bit longer in the discomfort, in order to stretch those spiritual muscles. It’s a practice, and we’re not seeking perfection here!  Continue reading WHAT DO YOU REACH FOR WHEN YOU’RE FEELING EMPTY?

I KNOW IT’S BEEN A MINUTE SINCE I BLOGGED

I just wanted to do an update post for all of my lovely and devoted followers. In case you were wondering where I’ve been and why I haven’t been posting on my usual twice-a-week schedule. And if you didn’t even notice I was gone, that’s okay too! Either way, I know it’s been a minute since I blogged, and I wanted to offer an explanation as to why, if I can even explain it myself. At the very least, I will share with you what I’ve been up to over the last few weeks! Continue reading I KNOW IT’S BEEN A MINUTE SINCE I BLOGGED

DATING DISAPPOINTMENTS ARE FORCING ME TO BECOME MORE ZEN

Over the weekend, I had a dating potential go south, and I’m super bummed. This time, it wasn’t too terrible. He was so nice, and was so honest and up front about himself. And he essentially realized he wasn’t as ready to date as he thought he was, and decided to take a break to work on himself. I mean, I get it, I really do. But damn, I REALLY liked him. Granted, we only had two dates. But wow, dating him made me realize I need to raise my bar a bit. Because he’s the first guy I’ve dated in a really long time who I actually liked. And who I was insanely attracted to. And dating is so much more fun when you’re into it. However, dating disappointments hurt that much more when you really like the person. But, I suppose it’s a risk I’m willing to take on my quest for love. Continue reading DATING DISAPPOINTMENTS ARE FORCING ME TO BECOME MORE ZEN

MY LIFE IS A MEDITATION RIGHT NOW

Continue reading MY LIFE IS A MEDITATION RIGHT NOW

DOES EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THE PINK TAX?

I just came from the drug store. Because ever since the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade, which protected a woman’s right to getting an abortion, I’ve been petrified. And even though I’m not currently sexually active, I’m doing my damndest to become sexually active again! And I’m still in my childbearing years, even though I’m 42. So, I thought it would be smart to purchase some Plan B to have on hand, JUST IN CASE. Because it’s not looking good for Pennsylvania in terms of abortion rights and where PA will land with their laws. And I just had to pay $50 FUCKING DOLLARS for one package of this. For one pill! And this my friends, is an example of the pink tax. Continue reading DOES EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THE PINK TAX?

MY ZANY MOTHER VALUED FUN AND NEVER GIVE AF

This is the second post in my “The Story Of My Mother” series. And even though in my first post, I declared my intention to keep this series chronological, I’m already straying here. It’s just too impossible to share about my mother in any linear way. So I’m going to lean into the organic flow, and share some details with you about her zany personality in this post. Continue reading MY ZANY MOTHER VALUED FUN AND NEVER GIVE AF

I’M ALMOST NEVER STRESSED, BUT I HAVE BEEN LATELY

I was trying to think of the last time I was this stressed out in life. And I concluded that the last time I felt this way was in March of 2020. Now, I know for most of us, March 2020, was when much of the world started to go into Covid-19 lockdown. However, there were so many other crazy things going on in my life at that time, that the lockdown just added to the already existing insanity. And I feel like that’s what’s happening now. For me, I can handle stressful situations as long as the rest of my life is pretty okay. But when multiple stressors come together all at once, it’s too much for me, and I just kind of can’t handle things. Continue reading I’M ALMOST NEVER STRESSED, BUT I HAVE BEEN LATELY

And if you are interested in reading more about my take on the bullshit happening at the moment, you can read my post, “I’ve Never Been Afraid To Be In This Country Before, But I Am Now.” Because really, I just want to laugh and cheer myself up.
