Beautiful Boundaries

Over the past few years, in both work and in my personal life, I have been responsible for a lot of stuff. A lot. And with that responsibility comes lots of people having lots of questions. These questions would start at 7am and go until about 11pm, sometimes…

What 33 Taught Me

Well, it happened. Yesterday was my birthday, and today I woke up 34 and sort of sore (I started the Jillian Michaels workouts and Y’ALL). Maybe that will be my slogan for this year: 34 and sort of sore. 33 was an amazing year. I took a new…

The Change Game

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out, and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction. Cynthia Occelli Let me be really clear about something: Change sucks. I mean,…

Who Would Jesus Vote For?

When I was 8 years old, I called my friend a “stupid buttface” and told her that she wasn’t going to be in my wedding.  We got in a fight over sidewalk chalk. I had drawn a house, and she definitely crossed into my house with her stupid…

The Ugly Woman

I recently have been doing a lot of thinking. More thinking than normal, I would say. I attribute most of this to the fact that I’ve had the flu for 9 days and my internet was out for 2 of those 9. Talk about time for self-reflection. I…

White and Alone

A few weeks back, I was invited to a party. So naturally, the first thing that I did was go through my pre-party do-I-want-to-go checklist Do I want to go? Do I have to go? (Because we all  have those parties where you say, “If I skip another…

Turn the Other Buttcheek

A few years back I found myself in an incredibly dramatic situation with a woman. The entire thing revolved around a guy that she had randomly told me that she kind of liked, and how I had then maliciously and purposely thrown myself at him with the underlying motive…
