Freewriting Series: Not All Men Are Cads

CAD by Bougie Girl Apparel

Not all men are cads. In fact, I would go as far as saying that a majority men are decent. However, we as women fail to acknowledge them because we take their kindness and good deeds for granted. The good men are the ones whom we run to after the cad has broken our hearts. We cry on the shoulders of good men and they comfort us with their soothing words until our emotional storm passes. Afterwards, we leave the shelter of their embrace and head back into the proverbial ring with yet another cad. 

Ladies, this unacceptable behavior. On the surface, being with a good man seems to lack the same excitement in comparison to rollin' with a cad. A cad is going to put pie in the sky dreams in your head which he has no plans of ever following through on. While a good man will mull things over before speaking because he wants to make sure that he can deliver on his promises to you. 

You do not have to "tame" a good man or make him change his philanderin' ways. He already has act together and he does not need you to mold him.

My theory is that women get tangled up in cads as a way to hide from our own lives.

"Well, I would have started my dream business but, there was drama between Mr. Cad and me, so I couldn't do it." 

or

"I was going to start that new exercise regimen but, I couldn't get up early most days because I am usually out at the bar until closing time keepin' an eye on Mr. Cad."

In the long run, hanging out with Mr. Cad burns lots of precious daylight and it makes you embittered towards men in general. Perhaps, Mr. Cad is a very talented n certain areas but, you can't build a long-lasting relationship based solely on  bedroom activities.

Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
