Why I'm Grateful I was Single for So Long

Whenever we have something in our lives that really bothers us, there is an underlying reason for it. I am so grateful to all of those people out there for asking me about my relationship status and helping me to see that it was something that I didn’t feel good about at that time. It enabled me to figure out why I wasn’t comfortable with being single. The awareness helped me to realize that I did in fact feel damaged and not good enough because I wasn’t in a committed relationship. I knew that these things weren’t true, but I also knew that this was a deep subconscious belief I had to look at before I could begin to feel differently Read More

How to Begin Moving Forward after You’ve Been Cheated on

So how can you begin to come out from behind the wall you’ve built up because you are so tired of being back behind it? You don’t necessarily need to call our Ex up and thank them for cheating on you and you don’t need to accept that their behavior was OK. What can help you is acknowledgment of the situation, your pain and what you want for your future though. The only reason to forgive the situation is to set yourself free, not to make your Ex feel better. Read More

The best thing to do while you are single before finding the One

A few weeks ago an article of mine was published on tinybuddha.com called ‘The 3 Stages of a New Relationship and How to Handle the Changes.’ I heard a lot of feedback from single ladies saying they totally understood the article and were ready to do the work, but what should they do if they were in Stage Zero?! I thought this was a great question and wanted to shed light on it because I know there are others out there thinking it and I know I always want answers. Read More

The Art of Teamwork in a Relationship

I’ll be the first to admit my faulty attitude of believing that something will always be done better if I do it myself. It’s scary to me sometimes to feel like I rely on someone else for support, but it’s not about losing my independence, or having someone else make me happy. It’s really about embracing vulnerability and feeling safe letting someone else in. This awareness made me realize just how important it is to view my boyfriend as my teammate, my partner and my support in the game of our lives together. Read More

Healing codependency and the One question to ask yourself in the middle of any conflict

Codependency happens when there is some sort of trauma in our childhood that leaves our spirits wounded. It is a disruption of our faith, our trust and our connection to ourselves that then causes us to project this pain and discomfort onto others. Most of the time codependency shows up in our closest relationships, but mine has also shown up in my business which has caused panic and despair. In order to begin the healing work of this trauma, it is necessary to acknowledge this within ourselves and begin paying attention to our deeper feelings. In order to acknowledge these feelings, we must tune into our inner child who felt uncertain, unsafe and unloved during childhood regardless of how traumatic we feel our experience was as a child.
