You Can't Make Me Settle...

You Can't Make Me Settle...
You Can't Make Me Settle... by Bougie Girl Apparel

When you are unmarried or even divorced for awhile. Well-meaning friends and family try to cajole you into accepting anything that comes your way, just so that you will not be alone.
They surmise that your seemingly terminal singlehood must mean that you are desperate to be in a relationship with someone...anyone.
You politely explain that whilst you do not expect perfection from a significant other, honesty and fidelity are  still required traits.
Alas, your heartfelt oratory has not wavered their determination to see you paired off to anyone with a heartbeat.
They insist on using the less than stellar parts of their marriages/relationship as examples on the virtues of patiently overlooking certain indiscretions. Unless of course, the "indiscretion" in question confronts you via social media and/or on your doorstep.

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 …
