Love’s Learning Curve

It may sound silly, but despite my track record, I still believe in true love.

My opinions and expectations of it have changed a bit over the years, however.

I no longer need it to complete me, but rather look forward to the additional happiness it will bring to my life.

Maybe it is the wisdom that comes with age or the pure act of loving myself, but either way, I have learned that building something up in my own mind does not make it real.

People say things they don’t mean all the time and it is up to us to decide whether to take it to heart.

I’ve talked to a lot of my guys friends about the subject and the consensus has been that in most cases, we make the situation much more complicated in our minds than it really needs to be.

The truth is that if someone really loves you and wants to be with you, there will be no stopping them.

So all this time we spend waiting by the phone hoping he will call is pointless.

If he felt the same as you, there would be no waiting by the phone. There would be no question in your mind as to whether he is thinking about you or not. If he was, he would tell you.

Rather than putting your life on hold and hoping for something that is obviously not mutual, you need to pick yourself up and move on.

If they really want you, men will fight for you and most of them enjoy the act of the chase.

Don’t lose faith in yourself or think it is something you did or didn’t do and it is not because you are not worthy of them either. The simple truth is that loving someone does not require them to love you in return.

If you were true, spoke your mind and they just weren’t feeling it, that’s all it is, they were just not feeling it.

The reality is that not everyone we love is who we are supposed to end up with. I’m sure there are plenty of people who want to be with you, but you just don’t feel the same way. It is not always the result of something they did or didn’t do, right?

So why would we think that about ourselves when we are sitting on the other side of the table?

The person you are meant to be with is out there somewhere, but you will never find them if you are too busy waiting on the wrong person’s feelings to change.

I know it hurts, (trust me I really do) but the rejection of others can actually be a blessing depending on how you look at it.

Call me a hopeless romantic, but I really believe that what is meant to be will always find a way. True love should not be complicated and will not be perfect, but it should come easy.

About a Girl

Once upon a time there was a girl

A girl who dreamed of grandeur

A world beyond her circumstance

A place of peace and security

Absent of fear and doubt.

Filled with inspiration

Flowing with ideas

She wrote

And she wrote

And she wrote

Recording each delicious morsel

In anticipation for the next.

Notebook after notebook

Her words filled the pages

Until one day it was no longer enough

She wanted more

The urge to share her experiences with the world

So she started a blog

Hoping one day she may use these words to inspire

To encourage

To empower…

That day has finally come.

This once young and struggling writer, as of today, is now a published author.

Announcing the official release of….

Insane Roots – A Memoir: The Adventures of a Con-Artist and Her Daughter


In Stores Now!!!



Dead End Love

Once upon a time there was girl.

And one day, she met this boy.

Her eyes sparkled when he looked her way

And the cranks in his mind began to turn.

He knew he didn’t love her and he doubted he ever would.

But something about her intrigued him

She was loyal, laid back and fun

And best of all she worshiped the ground he walked on.

She’d do anything for him and he loved that

Even if he didn’t love her.

Dangling hope

He strung her along for years.

Until one day when fate decided to intervene

She found strength

She found her voice

And she told him all that she needed to say.

Her confessions were not met with kindness

Or simply declined.

Instead, he played on her weaknesses

And used them to foolishly crush her heart.

All she did was love him

And he just threw her away.

Unjustified and regretful.

In that moment, she vowed to never love again.

Never to make herself vulnerable to the dishonorable intentions of another.

After traveling the same road for years, she was met with not a fork, but a dead end.

There was a lot of back tracking to be done

For she had strayed, so far from herself.

At the time, she thought she would never recover

But just one year later and he is all but a memory

She no longer feels as though he is missing from her life

In fact, he barely crosses her mind.

The person she was with him is a person of the past.

The person she is now is so much stronger

The person she is now would never be happy with him

She is no longer blinded by emotion or the need for love.

She loves herself much more than before.

Thankful for his indiscretions and all of his lies

For the thought of a life with him now

Is that of a horrid affair.

He does not deserve her and the truth is he never did.

She has since tasted love and was once again met with it’s rejection, but she has never lost herself or given up hope that someday she will find love in its truest form.

For this experience has taught her that a dead end can sometimes force you in right the direction.

What is meant to be will always find a way 🙂
