I realized the best thing I could possibly do for myself was to stop trying to figure everything out.

“People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
There are things which we hold close to our chest, not really wanting to share with others. Of course, there are all kinds of reasons for it; but two stick out when it comes to domestic abuse: there is a sad reality of judgement against the victim and a lack of desire to understand those(…)
Let me warn you all up front: this is TOTALLY rantastic, has nothing to do with work and is really me just working out the frustrations of dating in 2014. For anyone that knows me well, they know that even though I haven’t been dating since I was fifteen (and I’m divorced, so I have(…)
