My Life

Gratefully 40

I’ve started this post a dozen times so far. Only to erase every word and start all over again. Maybe I was waiting for my lightbulb moment or some kind of epiphany. Wasn’t I supposed to wake up more confident? Where’s all that knowledge they talk about?

I used to wonder why everyone freaked out about turning 40. Often described as the “Big 4-Oh” or being “Over the Hill”—I guess it is kind of a big deal. Never mind the birthday parties where everything is decorated in black and tombstones are used as props. Why should turning 40 …

Life Rediscovering Joy

Joy is defined as an “emotion of great delight or happiness.” And it was missing from my life. Actually, for a lot longer than I’d like to admit. I’ll never forget the moment I realized it was gone. It was months ago at a concert with my best friend. We were watching our favorite band perform and at the end of the show I felt completely overwhelmed. In that exact moment, I couldn’t help but burst into tears. I felt something I hadn’t felt in such a long time—pure joy.

In a world as chaotic as …

What I’ve Learned in 10 Years of Marriage

Growing up, I never wanted to get married. All I wanted to do was travel the world as a photojournalist. Hopping from country to country with no obligations to anyone. That was the dream. Then as a teenager, I saw the inevitable happen between my parents. I always knew deep down inside that they would be divorced one day. And sure enough, it happened as they neared their 20th wedding anniversary. This solidified it for me and I continued to vow to myself that I would never ever get married. That was until I met him.

I fought …

Living with Anxiety: How I Cope

My heart races, it gets harder for me to breathe, my stomach is twisting and turning, fear and doubt are attacking me from every direction possible, and I’m scared it will never stop. This is only part of what I deal with when my anxiety hits and I know I’m not alone. For some odd reason (sarcastically typing), my anxiety has been above and beyond the worst I’ve experienced in a really long time. And like most of you who deal with it on a daily basis, I just want to curl up into a ball, pass out or cry, …

The Strength of a Woman

By Posted on 2

“Do you want to cut the umbilical cord?” I stood there with my mouth hanging open. “Ummmmmm, sure?” The nurse handed me a pair of scissors. Snip…snip…snip. Did that just happen? Did I just cut my nephew’s umbilical cord? Whoa.

You should know that I have never witnessed a live birth. I may have seen one on video once as a teenager, but after 30 seconds of footage I covered my eyes. At this moment, I stood there holding my sister-in-law’s hand, helping her breathe, and praying with her through the contractions. I was instantly in awe of …

I Am #WomenInspired

By Posted on 0

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Prudential and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

I grew up in a home where my dad was the key provider. My mom worked, but she didn’t bring in what my dad did. And although we lived paycheck to paycheck, we had everything we needed. My parents worked their butts off to make sure we had the basic necessities. I appreciated that more than they’ll ever know. They never spoke about finances in front of us or taught us about …
