Stop Lying to Yourself. You’re Selling Yourself Short!

After sex with my boyfriend I lay in his bed with my blog on my mind.  I received notifications, likes, new followers… It dawned on me. This is what I want. I want to be a famous blogger. I want MY voice to be heard and to be IMPORTANT. I cannot stop until it’s a…

My Weight Loss Journey Begins 

I have never been so sore in my life.  Yesterday was my first day working out with a personal trainer and boy, they do not play around! If you remember, one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to lose weight and even though I didn’t start in January, I’m not giving up.  This was the…

Ways To Make Your Boyfriend Better

I wrote a post like this a while back and you guys loved it! Today is another great opportunity for a post like that one.

You May Have a Food Addiction!!

Ever eat when you’re bored? Sad? Full? In my opinion, you might have a food addiction. Whether minor or severe, it’s there. I like the feeling food gives me. I feel comfortable when I eat, as most people do. If you look at it the way you would look at someone who’s addicted to alcohol…

How I Plan to Travel the World, One Paycheck at a Time

To Know A Man

Have you ever truly known a person? Perhaps better than they know themselves? Have you ever understood a person and knew what life lessons they needed to learn? Have you ever been so honest with yourself that you accepted that what they needed was NOT you? Ever let someone go that you wanted to hold…

No Love Lost, No Love Found

It’s so funny now that time has passed. It’s crazy that that I didn’t realize how stupid, emotional, and codependent I was. I lay here tonight watching being Mary Jane (a little tipsy), and I’m reminded of my first love. Well actually I’m not quite sure if it was love that kept me returning. But…

When You Leave Me

I roll over to your side of the bed and I still feel the warmth from where you lay. I sniff and I can smell you. I smell your cologne that you sprayed before you left me. Before you left me in this bed To roll over to your side and feel the warmth from…
