The Things We See

I wonder if it's true that when we die, our lives flash before our eyes. And if so, what will be the images that I'm shown? Because I have to say, I've seen some things in my life that I never want to see again. In fact, I've seen some horrendous things in my life…

I Want to Run

Lately I’ve been feeling like running. Not from anything. But to a lot of things. And for the past several months, when I walk into my job, something inside of me is screaming “run, run, run!” More on this to come soon... but for now... here’s this week’s Ted Talk. My favorite quote from it…

Please Read This to Her

I'm Still Here There is this beautiful thing that you do Well, it's one of the millions of beautiful things that you do   Like a meteor shower streaking across a star-packed sky Or a Tiger Lily waving above a field of wildflowers   There's this thing that you do That shakes your life so…

Be Your Own Hero

I don't know about you, but every time something traumatic happens in my life, I get small. I think most people do. But for me, if something "bad" happens, no matter how little or huge, whether it's a rude comment or the loss of a loved on, I naturally start to shrink. It's my automatic…

One Year Since Heartbreak

Sometimes I hate trying to come-up with a blog title, or even a blog topic for that matter. Today marks exactly one year since Wildflower broke-up with me. So, I wanted to write about how far I've come over the last year. But I also want to give advice about how I overcame heartbreak. But…

Choosing to Choose

I don't think this blog post will be super long. I've taken kinda a mini break from blogging lately. I'm actually working on a little something that I think will work in conjunction with this blog. I hope to be able to provide more details soon... In the meantime, I've been in a pretty good…

A Quote for the Heartbroken

Yesterday I was listening to Rob Bell's latest podcast. Josh Radnor was on the show and it was all about quotes. Being a writer, I guess I'm predisposed to really loving quotes. And I really loved this show. There were tons of great quotes and the discussions surrounding them were awesome too. Really, just about…

Hope for the Heartbroken

At some point, probably very soon, there's a post coming about specific things I've found to help with heartbreak. Some of them take less than a minute, some take  several minutes, and some take months. All of them work. But, sadly, none of them are magic (just wave a wand and everything is suddenly better).…
