Rejection is a Learning Experience

Catchy title eh? I figured it was best to get to the point straight off the bat. But, if you’re looking for a post that will rant, rave, and rail against the world you won’t find it here. Contrary to what some people who know me might think I am no stranger to rejection. I’ve… Continue reading Rejection is a Learning Experience

White Noise

It’s too loud. Life is too loud. Maybe that is why I spend a great deal of my time plugged into my phone or laptop. It’s easier to control the amount of sound I consume when I’m plugged in because the world seems set to overwhelm me at every possible turn. Now, don’t get me… Continue reading White Noise

I Don’t Want to Be a Superwoman

“You’re a superwoman!” Every so often this seemingly innocuous compliment slips from the mouth of one of my friends or sisters and, without fail, each time I hear it I cringe internally.  It’s not the act of being complimented that unsettles me it’s the terminology being used in the formation of said compliment.  I have never… Continue reading I Don’t Want to Be a Superwoman

2015

This might be a touch early for the New Year seeing as it is still 2014 but I need to write down my resolutions for 2015 so I figured what better way to hold myself accountable than to tell other people, even complete strangers, my goals for the future?

Christmas Eve – Unplugged?

The clock just switched over and suddenly, it’s Christmas Eve. I can’t sleep. I thought that Christmas induced insomnia only inflicted itself upon young children or at least waited until Christmas Eve cycled through twelve hours of daylight.  But no, apparently not. I’m up because of a lot of things – social media, technology, my… Continue reading Christmas Eve – Unplugged?
