I do not subscribe to the victim mentality. I believe that we each bear complete and total responsibility for our own lives, and that we can create and change our reality with focused intention and effort.
That being said, I am basically traumatized by the last year of dating. I can’t think of any other way [...]
For most of my life I have been a very disorganized person. Mentally more than in other ways. While I have completed a lot of things I am extremely proud of, more often than not I tend to start projects and put them down. I have been known to abandon ideas, things, causes, other people, myself. I’ve always [...]
I don’t know if the title of this post has anything to do with anything, but it feels like a theme in my life right now, so I’ll go with it.
The universe makes me laugh. As soon as I said I was surrendering the NEED to have a guy in my life, it started raining [...]
I’ve neglected my sweet little blog for too long now. A whole week!
Life has left me at a loss for words - I’m always processing, processing, processing - that’s what I do. But lately I’ve been going through an odd period of offline metamorphosis.
I’ve been sleeping a lot - it’s as if I’m catching [...]
I’ve had a few empowering experiences in the past few days that cause me to have renewed trust in the unfolding of life. They are both little things, but it is often the little things in life that are the most awe-inspiring to me.
The first one happened last night: Sami’s dad came with me to the school to [...]
Certainly contrary to The Rules, or other such advice about not pursuing men, I sent MTM an email yesterday. I decided to make one last attempt to clear up the question marks.
Hope you had a fun inauguration weekend.
Also wanted to ask: is everything ok? I thought we had a really nice connection at brunch, [...]
I know it is ridiculous. I know it is. But as I was getting a blowout in this fantastic Dominican salon today, I was retracing the steps, and one of my theories is that MTM Googled me and got scared off.
I told him my last name on our very fun and thrilling first date, and [...]
Reading Single Mom Seeking’s recent post about how confusing dating can be, all I can say is that I truly relate.
I always feel like I am doing it wrong, like I scare guys away with my intensity, with some needy vibe that I don’t even realize that I am giving off. I’ve concluded that [...]
I’m on a compassion jag and I can’t stop it.
I have been gathering up Sami’s baby gear to donate to a local thrift store, but then as I was looking at those two bags of stuff sitting there in the front hallway this evening, it hit me that I know someone who can really use [...]
Today I was reflecting on impermanence and how extraordinary it is and how when we realize, truly realize that everything in life is impermanent, how it can set us free.
This week I was in a hardened shell of anger and self-righteousness towards my ex. Then, with one apology, it all changed. With the willingness to [...]
Welcome to this blog - my chronicle of the illuminating, character-building path of single parenthood. I'm making this up as I go along. My life is my practice, and my five year-old son is my greatest teacher.
