Self-Care is Not Selfish

Allow me to ask you a personal question. When was the last time you took care of yourself? Now, I’m not talking about caring for your basic necessities. I’m not talking about a healthy lunch or a good nights sleep. Yes, both of those are imperative to healthy lifestyles. I am not minimizing them or […]

How Do You Define A Month?

Once upon a time, a month was measured in thirty to thirty-one day increments, with the occasional 28/29-day month, of course. For the first few decades of life, calendar pages turned and days evaporated into history. We marked them off of our calendar and breezily tore off pages with anticipation of all of our tomorrows.

Rise Up

She sat Indian style, across from me in my office, hands clinching her hair as she held her head up. As rain cascaded down my window, so too, did tears down her rosy cheeks. Between sniffles and reaches towards the tissue box she lamented about how hard life had become.  Wanting to be a mother […]

That’s what health class taught me. I’m […]

Infertile or A Woman?

Infertile. Friends, for the next few minutes, I want you to loosen that label. Step out from under that dark cloud raining pain and loneliness on you. Go ahead. Just for a minute. You can have it back if you want. I want to speak into those deep recesses of your soul that no one […]

Where Were You?

Where were you when your world stopped turning? Where were you when the trajectory of your life dead sprinted into a wall? Where were you when you were first introduced to the world’s most notorious enemy: grief? Where were you when you first learned that your body may not be as healthy as you once […]

I remember junior year of high school when I learned that one of my best friends skidded to her death in a rain slicked accident. That September evening my life seemed to skid to its own abrupt stop. Too many emotions for a 15-year-old, cascaded into my story. I felt ruined. Lonely. The world became […]

Belonging

“I just want to fit in SOMEWHERE,” she lamented as tears danced down her cheeks. As she reached for another tissue, she said, “everyone’s life is moving on besides ours. Sure, from the outside, we may look happy, but my heart feels like a cracked desert crying out for a drop of rain.” Her head […]
