Don't Call It Love: Trapped And Not Happy


During my younger years, I watched my female peers set about the game of locking onto a male/target and doing everything in their power to reel him in. Now, sometimes, these ploys were as simple as cooking up his favorite dish or always being within a stone's throw of his vicinity.

But, some of my peers did not want to leave anything to chance so they took certain drastic measures to ensure that their target would be tied to them forever.  Some attempted to use metaphysical means and others went the route of pregnancy.

In the long run, neither of these methods are particularly effective for long lasting love. 

The end result was a man whom feels trapped and not very happy.

For the first few years, she ignores his unhappiness in favor of focusing on home and hearth.

She will ignore the missed dinners, broken promises, and the random text messages from unfamiliar phone numbers on her husband's phone. She will turn a blind eye to the obvious look of dread and unhappiness in her husband's eyes.

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 …
