Am I crazy? Why nearing 30 doesn’t freak me out

8 May

Yesterday, I was sitting next to a high school student who was getting tutored in math. His tutor casually mentioned something about being in his mid-30’s but didn’t feel old and the student said “Well, to me — anything over 25 is really old.”  I could only laugh, because face it — we all felt that way at one point.

In one month, I’ll be turning 28 years old.  I’m actually really excited about it – the number has a nice ring to it, but more so, it’s one step closer to 30 which in my eyes is something to look forward to. Why? Because it means I’ve got 30 years of experience and that’s pretty awesome. Also, I hear many people say 30 is when their life REALLY takes off — so I can only image how much more fun I’ll have.

But I know I’m of a small minority who doesn’t seem to mind (yet) the cold truth of life —- YOU GET OLDER. Continue reading

LIVING your worth

6 May

Don’t just settle for knowing your worth — go out and LIVE your worth.

There’s a natural anxiety that comes about when you feel that you’re being taken for granted or under appreciated. But did you know what you do with that realization foretells the future for you? Continue reading

The poison of “what if” thinking

26 Apr

I was a sophomore in high school when we had a special assignment:  journal about the impact of “what if” thinking and how it would affect our life’s quality.

I don’t remember exactly what I wrote, but it was a loaded question and since then, has stuck with me because it shades so much of how we really think about ourselves, our options and our ability.

So tell me — when braced with something scary or risky around making a change, how many times have you talked yourself out it because you start asking “well, what if this happens….?”  Continue reading

“I Do!….someday, just not right now.”

20 Feb

What’s your typical response when people ask you “So, when are YOU two getting married?”

I’ve lived with my boyfriend for a little over two and a half years now, together over four and we have a legal domestic partnership.  But no, we’re not married.  No, we’re not engaged. No, I’m not upset about that. And while one day that’s the plan, for today — we’re quite happy with where we’re at.

We’re not alone either — many of my non-married, cohabitating friends own homes together with their significant others, have pets, and even children. Living in sin? I don’t think so. Making love work for a new age? Absolutely! Continue reading

The Hardest Lesson of All – To Love Thy Self

13 Feb

Why do we need to love ourselves? A favored topic among women’s literature and magazines, self-love advice is usually wrapped up in one or two vague and prescriptive lines, like be more confident; believe in yourself; accept who you are.

Has that advice ever helped you to? Probably not.

Love’s complexity is also its’ beauty. Healthy self-love is the full expression of the human spirit and without that sense of inner peace co-existing with the outer world, well — life would be pretty unbearable.  Continue reading
