Why aren’t I different yet??!

We all hear about people’s transformations. Their huge life change. Their inner growth. “Transformation” is a borderline buzz word now, and it’s starting to get drowned out by a sea of self help gurus. But there’s a dirty truth about transformation. IT’S ACTUALLY DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE. Different schedule. Different execution. Different. Sucks right? As life …

[ emotional procrastination ]

Like many high-performing, badass women, I “ain’t got time” for most things. Close-mindedness Slow walkers Fuckboys The patriarchy Your bullshit But sometimes…I even don’t have time to emote.

The Bitter Empath

You walk into a room. A party. A restaurant. And you read it. You see the writing on the wall. The forest from the trees. You can sense if the mood is good. If it’s sour. If someone is holding back tears. And then you calibrate. Like a machine going into overdrive, your empathic brain …

Shine on.

I’ve just finished the in-flight crossword. I typically finish it by the time we’ve reached a cruising altitude – it’s the first thing I do on every flight. This being at least the 12th plane I’ve been on this year, I’ve started to notice the things I do every time. Mini rituals that make flying …

Self Care

My stress, it strangles…

My stress, oh my stress, she tries to strangle me from inside. See she’s got a tight grip on me, and pulls in closer the more anxious I get. She chokes my voice back with her coarse, grating hands – closing my throat so I can’t speak my peace or call for help. She tightens …

What Women Want

Gosh, are we hard on women. And not just in the depressing way we’re talking about it in the news these days – where people (and entire political parties, apparently) might actually believe women, they just plain don’t care. And, no, not even in the way we pay women less. Or victim blame. Or slut …
