A few months ago, I was talking to my daughter about some relationship challenges I was having. I’d decided I no longer need to be in relationship with certain people. “I think it’s just COVID, Mama,” she said. “The pandemic taught me that I don’t have to be running around doing all these things for… Continue reading Monday Notes: Low-Maintenance vs High-Maintenance Relationships

Two days ago I got a message from a guy I used to date wanting to 'cuddle'. Yesterday I got a message from my ex-boyfriend. I'm not entertaining either one because both men have toxic qualities and are in the past for a reason. I'm trying to heal my childhood issues that led me to… Continue reading Covid19 Brought The Energy Vampires Out. I Deserve Better.
I've read numerous dating posts about being proactive in finding your next partner. Get out there and date - it's all about the numbers! This is the main advice I hear or read. I followed this for a number of years and I found that it kept me focused on that only and the rest… Continue reading Live a Fulfilling Life To Attract Your Next Partner
My daughter and I spend most every Sunday together. A lot of the time we just hang out at home, talk, laugh and eat. Sometimes we go thrifting, and sometimes we go explore. A few Sundays ago she wanted to go take pictures of the flowers at Pt. Defiance Park - I was all for… Continue reading Beautiful Rainy Day At Pt. Defiance Park
My daughter and I took a trip to the ocean last weekend. We both LOVE road trips and exploring. We live in Washington and our nearest ocean beaches are 90 miles away. We have a choice of Westport or Ocean Shores. We both prefer Westport because there's less crowds, a lighthouse, quaint little shops, and… Continue reading Ocean Road Trip! Westport, WA
I've been pretty much single for 12 years since my divorce. I've had four very short-term boyfriends during this time but they didn't last long enough to even feel like a real relationship and I never lived with any of them.

Before we had social media, we focused more on ourselves and our own lives creating a great life.
Some of us grew up with examples of staying in toxic situations. Some of us were told we would be lonely if we didn't forgive and keep people in our life, even though they were toxic. Some of us thought toxicity was normal because that is how we were raised and what we experienced. The… Continue reading Walk Away From Toxic Situations To Help Humanity
We all have a busy life and we all only have a certain amount of time to keep our lives in order. Sometimes a fun spur of the moment invitation will come up when we planned to clean the house or get the laundry done and we will be tempted to say no because it… Continue reading Be Spontaneous
We hear and read about how we should realize our worth all the time. We think we get it, and we do until someone charms us. The attention feels good, especially if we haven't had that kind of attention in a while. We can find out the person is broken in some way - maybe… Continue reading Single Women, Please Realize Your Worth
Let's be grateful for having time to pursue our interests and the ability to do whatever we want to do without having to think about another person. We get to be selfish. This is a season in our life and it won't last forever (if we don't want it to) so we better enjoy it… Continue reading For Singles Struggling With Being Alone.
