My Fear of Becoming THAT Married Woman

It is human nature to boast about things we’re proud of. But wives have to remember humility is key. We were once like our single friends struggling with relationships. As great as our lives are now, things may not always be this way. Things can change drastically and we’ll need our dear friends’ support. I don’t want to piss them off to the point where they roll their eyes and hit the ignore button whenever I call. My plan is to remain humble. Hopefully, my marital status does not interfere with my friendships. I hope I continue to be a good friend. And I hope my friends think so too.

On The Time Bullying Was A Good Thing

The radio can be a bully. How many times has a song played on the radio and you didn't like, so you flipped to the next station that was playing the same song? No matter what station you found yourself listening to, the song was always on the radio. It was as if the radio is trying to tell you, "I don't care what you do, but you are going to like this song. I am going to force you to like this song." This is precisely what happened between me and my local radio stations. But, a positive outcome occurred. I began to appreciate the words from the seemingly ubiquitous pop song, "Love Myself" by Hailee Steinfield. The song so closely reflects the message of this blog that I couldn't resist posting.

Dating In Your 30’s Vs Dating In Your 20’s

You can always tell a woman's age by her attitude towards relationships. Women in their 20's are constantly second-guessing themselves; worrying about maintaining their crush's interest, and obsessing about how cute or athletic their beau is. Women in their 30's, on the other hand, are purposeful. They don't waste time; they have a five-year plan (which … Continue reading Dating In Your 30’s Vs Dating In Your 20’s

Three Secrets To Keep

As I grow older and become more confident in my decisions, I realize how much I used to share with friends and relatives in order for them to validate me. I also realize how precarious of a position this is, for no one on this earth will understand you better than you. Looking to people for approval for who you are and what you're doing makes them into a god. And, ain't no one on this earth is worthy of that title.

Hollywood’s Deepest Secrets: A Movie Review of Beyond The Lights

How To Identify The Relationship With No Happy Ending

Recently, my friend mentioned to me that she was done with relationships that are "long stories." We all have friends that when you ask how her boyfriend is doing, she says, “Let me tell you what happened yesterday or last week” and then, she proceeds to tell her version of a long story. Long stories, in my friend's experience, never ended well. Her advice: leave any man that gives you a long story and move on.

I Think I Found Mr. Right

A woman gets tired of being let down. She gets tired of men cheating on her; she gets tired of being a man's back-up plan. She gets tired of being mistreated. Time after time, her boyfriend breaks his promises and her eyes have no more tears to shed. Understanding that a dream must be written in order for it to be real, I recently wrote these words down in my journal. At that time, there was no 'Mr. Right' in the picture, but I am rest assured with a little faith and patience, these words will be true.
