Life goes by so fast. I remember growing up how I longed to be a teenager; then to be able to drive a car; followed by legal drinking age. Looking back, those years flew by. Today, I’m challenging you to pause and take a minute. Take a minute to appreciate all you have done in… Read More Pause, Take A Minute
I know that good men exist; they are out there somewhere. However, there is one type of male that I have run into again and again in recent years – what I like to refer to as “the man-child”. It seems that gone are the days of wooing and courting. Now, you “swipe right” to… Read More Where Have All The Good Ones Gone?
Have you ever heard the saying about the fish who wanted to fly? Or the bird who wanted to swim? Neither one would ever be able to do what the other could do. Sometimes we need to accept our limitations and lead ourselves down a new path. Sometimes we fail – and that’s okay. I… Read More Failure Is Necessary
My whole life I have wanted to try hurdling. Many times I have thought, “I’m tall with long legs, I bet I could jump over them.” Then I pause, in fear, and decide to save it for another day. What if I trip and fall? Could I make it over a smaller hurdle first? The… Read More A Funny Thing About Hurdles
“If all your friends jumped from a bridge, would you?” I used to think this was a dumb question. If all my friends jumped from a bridge, I most definitely would not. However, I apparently thought it was intelligent to jump from a window onto gym mats. As much as I never thought I’d be… Read More Would You Jump?
“Oh right, I forgot,” he sneered at me. “It happened two minutes ago, so to you, it’s over. It’s in the past.” I had a partner who regularly scolded me for the fact I like to settle into the moment, live in the present and not look at the past or the future too much.… Read More That’s The Past
A few weeks ago I backed out of week five of my “Silver Living Exes Series.” Correction, I wussed out of writing week five. Most of the other situations I talked about in previous weeks, I’m removed from now. However, week five is different because I’m not completely removed… and it’s different. How? Let me… Read More My Week Five
“I’m tall, you’re tall, I thought we should meet.” This is literally the first introduction I had to the man who would end up playing quite the role in my university experience. We were the saga that never seemed to end. From first year to the end of fourth year, it was a roller coaster… Read More A Tale of the Blue Scarf
Time for some “fun” stories; the challenging stuff. Or possibly, the “tough” guys for the next few weeks. Last night, being Wednesday, I had this post half written. I thought about all the ups and downs; the roller coaster of the relationship and started writing my silver lining. Then tonight, I got together with some great… Read More Great, Bro…
Thought I’d jump ahead a bit this week. The series of the exes continues with my fit ex. He was a long-term friend of mine. We’d grown up together, and while we had a little blip of high school “dating” I never really thought our paths would cross again. Well, as the universe would have… Read More Fitness As My Witness
