I struggle with letting go. I am just throwing it out there right here and now. We all have those things we need to work on and right now for me it is letting me go. Letting go is hard and I blame it on the “what ifs.” What if that would have worked out? […]Read More Imma show you how to do this. It’s easy when you let go…
When I was little I used to read magazines and loved the last few pages on which you could find a pen pal. I had different pen pals for different hobbies. Megan was my horse lover pen pal and Monica was my best friend pen pal that I knew from private school. We would send […]Read More The People Finder That Works
Maybe the worst part is that I have been here before… Feeling like my hopes and dreams are crushed into pieces on the floor. As I pick up the pieces I see memories. Happy memories, sad memories, times of growth, grand adventures, and hopes for the future. Maybe it is a good thing that I […]Read More Leave the Pieces On the Floor
It was a tradition I started many years ago the first weekend after a major break-up / heartbreak. I was devastated and I also had to attend my first weekend long swim coach clinic.

The day after the break-up is usually the hardest. You cried yourself to sleep the night before and woke up with a heavy heart and that disconnected feeling. Like your head is somewhere else floating and you are trudging through your day barely making it. Last night I broke up with my makeup and this break up […]Read More The Day After the Break-up
I recognize and even somewhat empathize with that whole “let’s be friends mindset.” Trust me, I have been there in the past (trying to “make it work”) and it drove me crazy because it DOES NOT WORK. Break-ups and/or rejection are hard enough, but nothing complicates the process more than trying to be friends. […]Read More If You’re Under Him You Ain’t Getting Over Him
Do you ever hear the beginning of a song and just have to change it? I do not know why, but for some reason “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran does that to me. Now before you close down this post, please hear me out. I am about to pour out my soul here. This song has […]Read More I Think that “Perfect” and “Love” should not go together…
