Is Marraige Everything I Dreamed? When I was single, I wanted nothing more than to be married. I always felt like my true calling was to be a wife and a mom, so nothing made sense to me without being married. I just assumed that I would go to college and get married right after.  […]

Today, I’m talking about the comparison game. We’ve all played it, and I think I’ve played it more than most. I’ve spent a lot of time comparing myself to others. We compare ourselves to others in so many areas: our looks, our personality, our houses, our hobbies, our weekend activities, our businesses, our talents, and even […]

I experience an overwhelming desire to talk about things. To get them out in the open. But talking about it doesn’t seem to be enough. I don’t feel settled until I share it with someone. When I moved to California last year, I realized that I’m a verbal processor! I hadn’t put it into words […]
