There was a time in my life where I would go to the grocery store, see a cute guy, and wonder what our kids would look like.
There were times where I would casually walk by someone, and I’d wonder if they were falling in love with me. It felt like second nature to jump into thoughts of a life together before even figuring out his name.
Occasionally, those fleeting moments would turn into something more. I’m not shy when it comes to relationships; I’ll say what I want. …
You have a dream.
You have a dream to become someone, to achieve something, to create something. Maybe it’s all three, but either way, you have an idea in your head of what you want your life to look like and who you want to be eventually.
I know this because I have a dream. I dream of being a published author, having financial freedom, having a family, supporting my mother, moving to NYC, and living a life I’m proud of. Those are my dreams and aspirations.
For all of that to come to fruition, I’ve had to do a…
Have you ever wondered why it’s so easy for other people to be productive?Have you ever felt motivated to do certain things, only to have that drive dry out within a few days? Have you ever felt discouraged or frustrated when the people around you discuss their goals and how they’ve read 75 books and wrote 9 on top of maintaining a healthy body? Meanwhile, you’re still struggling with the third chapter of the book you’ve been trying to read for the last 2 months?
We all have something we stress about on a daily basis, whether it be finances, work-related, family issues, dating problems, health-related things, etc.
It’s okay to stress and worry about things that are important to us, the problem is when we let those things take over our lives and we’re unable to enjoy our day-to-day life because you constantly have this nagging thought in the back of your mind telling you, “you have this to worry about.”
Over the last year, I’ve experienced stress like I never have before. We all did. I was struggling to pay my bills, pay…
“He’s complete and total trash. All men are if you really think about it. This was our third date, and he didn’t even bother complimenting me on my new haircut. I honestly am starting to think I’m never going to meet someone good enough.”
Over the weekend my boyfriend and I decided to go to the beach. He had his AirPods in while I was trying really hard to focus on the book I had brought with me; the problem was the group of people next to us.
The woman would not calm down about a date she had the…
A lot of people are going to live out their life without tapping into their potential.
They’re going to be in their mid-60s without ever getting a taste of what freedom tastes like. They’ll celebrate their 75th birthday and realize they never traveled to their dream destination, or they never did that one thing they always wanted to do.
Every morning I wake up with a burning drive to do whatever I can to inch myself closer to freedom. Not just for myself, but for my family and my future children.
I know you have aspirations too. I know you…
I’ve had this little bubble of hurt within me for the last 17 years.
The hurt was from my father not being there. Not paying attention to me, not trying to find me, not making any effort to communicate with me, being absent during the challenging moments of life, being absent for the first heartbreak, the second one, the third, the list goes on.
After my mom found him two summers ago now, that bubble of hurt didn’t evaporate; it actually became bigger because he remained the absent father he’s always been. …
Maybe you’ve always struggled with confidence, or perhaps you used to be extremely confident, but someone came into your life and made you doubt yourself.
Now you’re actively trying to put yourself out there and meet someone new, but everyone you’ve talked to hasn’t interested you. You’re wondering if you’ll ever meet that one person that makes you feel special and loved.
Maybe you went on an incredible date with someone recently. The night played out so well; you couldn’t wait for them to ask you on a second one. However, you haven’t heard from them in days, and it’s…
You know that friend that tells you they’ll never go back to their ex, and no less than a month later, they’re going out to dinner again?
You know that couple that has been on and off ever since you can remember?
You know that time you swore you’d never date that type of person, and you broke your own promise to yourself?
You kissed them even though a voice deep down inside of you told you not to. You relished in their touch despite knowing it felt wrong. You took them back, knowing they’d screw you over — again.
Dating someone who is extremely insecure about themselves and your relationship is stifling.
I dated someone like this when I was 17; I felt like I was walking on eggshells. Nothing I did was ever right; in fact, at times, it just felt like I was using all of my energy to ensure my partner wasn’t upset by anything I did.
I remember the friends I gave up, the fun outings I turned down, the clothes I didn’t wear because he didn’t like them. I remember the way I had to always look down if I saw a man walking…
