Knowing when to say when!

What is humbling than looking yourself in the mirror and being actually happy with who you are.  Some days are easier than others.  Me, personally, on the days I get my eyeliner lined just right on both eyes I can tell that it's going to be a winning kind of day for me.  I've come to realize that I am not a superficial person, it just took me a really long time to become comfortable in the skin I'm in and to not apologize for it.  Some call it being conceited, and I call it quite the opposite....more

Happy Medium

This is the first time that I am blogging on this particular site - wish me luck and try not to get bored.  I wanted to express myself in a way that could be understood by women of all walks of life.  Sometimes women go through things that they are afraid to admit to in fear of being judged.  I was once that tyoe of person.  I have come to the realization that I was made to be unique - we all were.  No one was ever meant to be created the same.  I am so proud to finally realize that. ...more

First Steps in Meditation

When most people think of meditation, they picture people sitting motionless, cross-legged on the floor, back straight with wrists gently resting on their knees; slow and steady breathing and perhaps a soft, audible “om” emanating from inside them. This condition of calmness is said to be able to quiet the storms of the mind, restore energies and connections with the universe and bring a sense of peace within. As attractive as the benefits of this kind of meditation are, I have never been a person who “sits still” very long or very well. Believe me, I’ve tried!...more


Usually I have the good sense to ignore self-righteous bad mouthing in comments but I slipped during the last couple of weeks.  Actually  I made some darn good points and clarified my believes during the exchanges , not that anyone was convinced.  In that sense, it was a complete  exercise in futility....more

Go for drinks? Grab coffee? How does a Mormon casually date?

So, one major reason I started this blog is because I figured it would give me some structure as I try to be a normal, real-life person post-graduation. For some reason, writing helps me think through things. Yes, I could attempt journaling or talking to a shrink, but instead posting these thoughts for the entire world to see seems more cathartic and possibly productive....more

Trolls, Tribes and Tribulations

This week, I blogged every day. Monday through Friday. I generally blog 3-4 times a week, but this week, was different. I read into my stat analytics and worked in an extra post about trolls. A friend was featured on Scary Mommy, and it gave me a great idea to write about our group. I scrolled through the Twittah (that's how gals from Brooklyn talk sometimes) and was inspired to weigh in on a debate.Lesson learned this week? Ferris Bueller said it best, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."On with the round up!...more
