How My First Psychic Chat Changed My Life

It’s 1:15 a.m. in Florida and my marriage is as shattered as a broken piece of China. I’m not sure whether it’s worth trying to glue the millions of dysfunctional pieces back together. I need the help of an all-seeing and all-knowing higher being and I don’t want to ‘pray about it’ because, well…you know what the bible says about divorce. So, what’s a distressed girl to do?

Here’s A Love Letter Every Girl Should Write

Sometimes we creatives can be off the rails and undisciplined. At times, I feel like an unruly and impulsive firecracker.

Why You Need Vulnerability to Make Relationships Work

Why You Need Vulnerability to Make Relationships Work

Tears weren’t something that fell often in my house. This means that while growing up, I didn’t see vulnerability often. The only time I ever saw my mom cry was when her mom died, and I couldn’t have been older than seven years old. Likewise, I’ve never seen my dad cry in my entire life until date.

In some ways, I feel it would have made me a better communicator and more comfortable with vulnerability.  As an adult,...
