Hypocrisy on high alert

As many of us have, I’ve been thinking a lot about the whole nauseating news about what Harvey Weinstein did to so many women, about the women and men in Hollywood who are coming out loudly in interviews and on social media against him, and much of the deep hypocrisy that goes along with the people surrounding this story.

Onward and upward!

So it’s coming up on the end of third quarter (thinking in business terms here) and with that, I’m starting to ponder our goals for 2018, and how we’re going to get there. Y’all have heard many of my frustrations, dreams, challenges faced, and now it’s time to slowly but surely put one foot in front of the other, seizing…

This Guy. 

This Monday my husband turns 50, and as we edge closer to the big day I celebrate this incredible man, the love of MY life, my best friend, and a true partner in every sense of the word. I love you, babe… If everyone in the world Could give me what I wanted I wouldn’t want for more than I…

“We don’t want to admit to ourselves when we have been victimized because we don’t want to have to feel our vulnerability in the world. We want to go on pretending, just as children do, that we are invincible—that nothing can get us down, nothing can touch us…We not only ignore and blame victims but we expect them to recover…

Rediscovery

I was watching television on a Saturday night, thinking “is this all there is?” and the loneliness enveloping me. It’s what’s made me eat when I shouldn’t, that numbing food addiction that made me say to myself “tonight I’m going to fuck over my body with unkind food choices.” And I get sick and I cry to myself, because it’s…
