    Never Say Never

    I’m going to share a story with you. As you read it, can you guess what I’m talking about? The words in italics were thoughts running through my head. Okay, here we go… Oh my god, can anyone else hear how loud and fast my heart is beating?  Can a heart beat right out of someone’s chest? It sure feels like mine is going to.  It’s too hot in here, I feel like I’m suffocating.  I think I’m going to pass out.  My hands are so sweaty. My body is so hot. Did someone turn up the heat?  Seriously, it’s too hot in here – I’m going to faint.  Oh…

    When You’re Looking For Love & Get D*ck Pics Instead

    I. just. want. to. date. I just want to get out there and meet guys. I just want to find someone to get to know and see where things go. But what do I get? Another freaking d*ck pic! C’mon guys. This is how I would have handled this before Oh boy, here comes a confession… A pic like that would have gotten me engaged in conversation with the dude. Why?

What is Imposter Syndrome?  Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome or the imposter experience) is a concept describing high-achieving individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a “fraud”… {Source: Wikipedia} While that’s not exactly the definition of what I’m feeling – it sums it up pretty well.…

    When is enough enough? Part One: Alcohol Addiction

    Am I home?  How did I get here?  Where’s my car, did I drive? SH*T! Who’s the guy in bed next to me?  Those were the questions I was asking myself the morning after my 37th birthday and: another night of drinking another night of blacking out another morning of being hungover Another morning of hating myself He (thankfully not a complete stranger – knew him from back in high school), laid there snoring away oblivious to my tears and annoyance that he was still passed out when all I wanted was him awake and OUT of my space!  The tears continued streaming down my face as I questioned how…

    How to Recognize Self-Limiting Beliefs

    Kristy is a stay at home mom. She loves being with her kids and not having to send them to daycare. But she feels like she’s lost herself – she’s overweight, doesn’t do anything with friends anymore, and just wants to get herself back and start enjoying life outside of just her kids.
