Apparently My Inner Guide Thinks I’m A Judgmental Beotch

School Bus With Bacon

I’ve been on a spiritual journey the last few years. While I’ve always believed in something greater than myself, the idea of God and organized religion never really spoke to me. What did finally speak to me was the Law of Attraction when I watched the movie “The Secret” a few years ago. It changed …

Just Because I’m A Single Mom Doesn’t Mean I’m Less Than

Less Than Three With Bacon

This April will mark my five year anniversary as a single mom, and I’d like to think I’ve come a long way (baby)  since I was first delivered the news that my ex was leaving me for another woman. At the time it was devastating to hear. Honestly I didn’t even know how the hell …

Confetti with Bacon

Leveling up is a concept in games when a character experiences some sort of progression that usually involves unlocking new abilities, skills, access to new items, or as a benchmark of how far they’ve come.

Enjoying The Ride

Bacon ride

I entered into my last relationship with anxiety – and rightly so given the circumstances. It was the first serious relationship I’d been in since my ex and I split. Plus, dating someone with PTSD probably wasn’t the smartest thing I ever did. When a man flat out tells you he’s incapable of feeling anything …

Happy 1st Day Of Therapy To Me

You might remember this post I wrote over the summer in which I decided to put on my big girl panties and seek therapy with the hopes of being less anxious and cray cray in romantic relationships, especially the one I was in at the time with Ben. When I went in search of a …

Don’t Settle For Love. Be Amazing Instead.

Be Amazing With Bacon

I often wonder, “Why not me?” I witness people in love each and every day. They’ve settled down. They lean on each other and have found a way to make the pieces fit. Yesterday a picture popped up on my Facebook timeline of a woman who had just gotten engaged. She was showing off her …

Closed Book Happy Bacon

People come, people go – they’ll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in a favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, …

Reckless

Bacon Gifts

I deleted my OKCupid account this evening in an attempt to be less reckless – this is after recently trying to date (I use the term loosely) two different men I met on the online dating site. One was the guy I talked about in my last blog post, that seemed like he could be …

When you’re in the midst of the emotional pain that comes after a breakup, it feels as if it will never end. It’s so freaking hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, even though most of us know the reality is it is there since we’ve traveled through the darkness alone …
