I LOVE Living Alone...Most of the Time

Late one night/very early one morning in July 2012, a derecho wreaked havoc on a vast swath of the US of A. Not feeling well early in the evening before, I skipped my plans and fell asleep reading. I woke up naturally at approximately 1:15a—the light was on and the book was still in my hands. After a quick trip to the bathroom, I climbed back in bed and felt myself drifting to sleep....more

Cross Post: Living and Loving in "Denial"

“Denial is more symbolic than literal.” -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross & David Kessler from On Grief and GrievingSo how have I been in denial about being single? I can think of several ways: Trying to make a man love me; holding on to a “fantasy relationship;” seeking romantic relationships to make me happy and to fill a void; seeking romantic relationships to fix what was broken within me…...more

Between Faith, Hope and Reality....

I have faith and hope but sometimes reality is reality!!When emotions come in the way, is it best to reassess the situation and perhaps take practical steps as the guy would?! As a WiseGirl, I have promised all and sundry that I will and I will, test out my high convictions which I've tried to model into the Journey model… Reality however is that the model is hard to follow when emotions (the heart) comes into play.. Damn it!!!...more

Moving Up in the World

Last night I got into a semi-heated argument with a long-time friend whom I fear I can no longer relate to on certain levels. Living overseas has definitely altered my way of thinking and viewing the world and the petty issues many of us struggle with on a daily basis. I don't think I'm better or wiser than those I said goodbye to when I left the U.S. two years ago but there's no denying I'm now a different person....more

A never-ending tightrope walk.

So here I am, heading into the year of my 31st birthday;  separated from my husband, a diagnosed depressive, anxiety prone, sleepless single parent.  Not exactly what my parents invisioned for me when they gazed over my vernix coated head at my birth......BUT, I can say I am sick of perpetually being a sobbing, scared, hopeless basket case and in that spirit, I have decided to overhaul my life, searching for the balance between healthy fear and irrationality, between health and sickness, love and lust, motivation and fear driven self sabotage.  I am embarking on a jou...more
