What We Want and Deserve

Love isn’t as easy as it was even ten or fifteen years ago. I often think about how technology is making it harder to find someone to love, but I also think about how easy it is to fall for people by what they include online. We can follow someone’s pictures and posts and think to ourselves “this person is exactly what I’m looking for, they’re cute, funny, and would make the perfect boyfriend or girlfriend.” The hard part of it all is that it’s not always completely accurate.

It’s Hard to Make Friends

From elementary school through college, making lasting friendships was much easier than when we get older. We find that people become less willing to make new connections with one another. That’s difficult to accept, especially if you view your friends to be a lot like an extended family. Not everyone marries and has children, either it is by choice or because they just didn’t find a person that was right for them. Whatever the reason, friendship is an important part of life.

Keeping Love Alive

An all-time favorite movie about a screenwriter who falls in love with a famous bachelor, it’s one of the few movies that I can’t resist watching. There is an excitement and hope that even through the ups and downs of their relationship, in the end, I hope that they will be together. That’s what love is about.

Are we just pushing love away, or is that we have fallen out of the idea of being in love?

Feeling Fragile

Sometimes I think about my own life and realize as I’m getting older in age the idea of being alone can be difficult. Let’s face it. We come into this world young and for many, we leave much older in our lives. Many questions come up. Questions as to who will care for us as…

Love or Loving?

There are single women and men are hearing much of the same line “Why are you still single?” We don’t just hear it once, but rather over and over again. There are just some people out there that are single for a reason. The truth is that they are just not in love with anyone….

Under the Mistletoe

From November through January, there is a whirlwind of holidays that seem to come fast. Holiday stress of seeing family that you haven’t seen all year, on top of the yearly time shopping for gifts, it feels like in a blink of an eye we’re back into February. Where did it all go? If you…

The Holiday Tale

This time of year can be one of the most difficult times of year. I’m not sure if it’s the holidays coming up. Or if it’s the fact that so many holidays come one right after the other. From Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, to New Years; I find that we come most in contact with the…
