This one's for the (single) girls

I’m always surprised (and sometimes a little horrified) at some of the comments I get on my Twitter page, mostly from men, mostly asking me: “If you know so much, why are you still single?” It doesn’t always come in the form of a question. Sometimes it comes more in the form of an accusatory comment: “THAT’S why you’re still single!” or, “You must be (insert derogatory insult here) – and THAT’S why you don’t » Read More

Would you…could you…go Back to the Future?

Do you ever wonder…if you were to change one little tiny detail about your day…how your life might be different? Show up a few minutes early instead of a few minutes late. Take a different route. Shop at a store you’ve never shopped at. Call someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time. Say hello to someone you don’t know. How would all of these things change the life you are leading now?

Eat Pray Love: Well worth the journey

As little girls growing up playing with dolls and Easy-Bake Ovens and pushing our fake grocery carts around and carrying our fake purses, it’s pretty much drilled into our heads from Day 1 that the pentacle of a woman’s life is marriage, and kids, and carpools, and a white picket fence. We marry off our Barbies to our Kens at 5, marry off ourselves to our first boyfriends on the playground at age 10, and » Read More

Be fearless enough to follow your female intuition

“There are voices that want to be heard so much to mention but you can’t find the words the scent of magic the beauty that’s been when love was wilder than the wind…” The 1988 Roxette song “Listen to Your Heart” attempted to explain it but couldn’t define it. That still, small voice. Our heart. Our intuition. A weird feeling. A gut instinct. Whatever you call it – female intuition has been around since the » Read More

Finding The End where it all began

Once upon a time, in a land called Music City, there lived a fair maiden who fell hard for a boy. For four years she loved this boy from afar, as the two engaged in a very on-again, off-again, Carrie Bradshaw/Mr. Big, never-quite-black yet never-quite-white relationship. The girl could never work up the nerve to tell the boy she loved him, and then one day it was too late. He disappeared without warning. And he » Read More

Lessons learned along the Yellow Brick Road

You usually never know life’s unforgettable moments are, in fact, unforgettable, until the moment has passed. The night you simply went with your friends to the same place you’d been going for years to grab dinner; except this time, you met someone that would literally change the course of your life. The day you told the boy you had been in love with for four years that you had been in love with him for » Read More

The divine art of letting go

Love is defined in many ways. Ask anyone on the street for their definition of love, and you’ll get no two answers the same. The Bible defines love. Movies define love. Turn on the radio and you’ll get a definition of love. We see evidence of love in the unlikeliest of places and among the most unlikely of men and women. Your cat loves you. Your dog loves you. Your neighbor loves you. Your mom » Read More

Be a first place girl, not a just in case girl

Most of us have read “He’s Just Not That Into You,” or at least seen the movie. We know the rules. We know the score. We can weigh in on our friends’ love lives with perfect clarity, giving them advice, showing them the error of their ways; but yet, when it comes to our own lives…and to that ONE guy…the one that makes us weak in the knees…the one that can pluck at our heart » Read More

Confessions of a Single Woman

The life of a single woman is a whirlwind of contradictions. One minute you like a guy, the next you don’t; one day you have $2,000 in the bank, the next you’re chasing pennies around the floorboard of your car to afford a McDonald’s cheeseburger for dinner; one week you feel single and fabulous, the next you just feel lonely and mediocre. It happens to the best of us. There is no real safety net » Read More

Is he The One…or should you run?

The journey of many a single girl will eventually take her down the aisle to forever…her final destination as a “Ms.” before riding off into the sunset as a “Mrs.” One of the most precious and important decisions in the life of a woman is the one that joins her to her Prince Charming forevermore. The beautiful moment when she says “I do” is likely the moment she has been dreaming of her entire life, » Read More
