I have always believed jealousy to be lack of confidence. It is either lack of confidence in the relationship or lack of confidence in the direction of our own life. We need confirmation from our romantic partner in order to feel secure about where we stand with them. When being jealous of other’s lives, their success or their objects, we are feeling insecure about our own direction and/or uncertain that it will lead us to our own success; or simply unsatisfied with where we are. Thank goodness I have never been bugged with the ‘jealousy’ characteristic. In a relationship, my thought has been, if the person I’m dating simultaneously wants someone else, they need to go on and not waste … Read More


To Feel and To Know…

Love is a verb. It is the behavior in the relationship. Love is the sacrifice and the compromise. Lust and infatuation are the emotions from the chemicals at the beginning of the dating process. I don’t mean to sound so unromantic about the process, but I do mean to express maturity about what it takes to sustain a relationship. And any adult that has experienced a longterm relationship understands this reality. In truth, we would all like for the ‘lusting after’ and being in love part to run the entire course of the relationship too. Why do we pursue dating without the promise or guarantee of love? Because we are selfish. This is the truth. The act of courting is … Read More

Read For the Raw Truth

The 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens is today. I love reading, love love love it! When people ask me what I enjoy most, I always say the same thing, ‘I will read anything, even sci-fi, except Harlequin romance.’ It’s similar to my dictum that I will listen to any music, except twangy country or big brassy band. There are people that only read for pleasure, mostly fiction. And there are people that believe, should the time be invested, it may as well be for the knowledge in non-fiction. It is often said during school that reading history helps us to not only understand the past, but anticipate similar scenarios in the future and be better prepared for repeated unfortunate cycles … Read More

I go through periods when I remember my dreams very vividly and periods of a week or so where I feel as if I don’t dream at all. I used to be very into analyzing them using 2 different reference books I still own; I no longer do this, but maybe because I’m fairly familiar with what a lot of the themes represent in association with my life and what is transpiring. Regardless, I find it fascinating that our subconscious can come up with the most random and out of place events or settings. Truthfully, I feel disconnected from myself in some ways when I don’t remember them. I love waiting till Im so deliriously sleepy before attempting to sleep; … Read More


Faith is Trust

Most associate the word faith with religion, because most faith is used in and defined by trusting god. To me, faith is solely synonymous with trust, period. Regardless of religion, the more one utilizes faith (trust), the less worry you will have in your life. Worry is projecting into the future with an added dose of fear. We can not control the future, nor can we control and/or anticipate other people’s behavior. That being said, we must suspend a little faith into every given day that things will run smoothly with our friends reliability, partners loyalty, and business fairness. And with our own desires, we must have faith that what we want will come to pass. Maybe it doesn’t turn … Read More
