I Left My Perfect Marriage For The Perfect Woman

MarijaRadovic / iStock **This was originally published on Scary Mommy in August 2017 Much has changed, but the message remains.** It’s interesting how we can walk through life thinking we have it all figured out. Society has a way of telling us what we want, who we should be, who we should be with, and once we …

Loving You is Loving Me

I have a question. I know we talk about love like it's something we keep or lack, search for, yearn for and would do anything for...but do you really understand love? Is it in fact something you desire within yourself? Or is it something you've been programmed to think you need to seek in someone …

We’re Black, White & Gay: Are You Uncomfortable?

I am the most powerful demographic in the world, not the most privileged. Close though (cue the white male), but I am by far the most powerful. My white privilege and pussy power is a more dangerous combo than the #10 large value meal at the most popular fast food chain in the world. My …

Layers – They Matter

Hi. I love that you showed up here. Did you choose to be right here in this moment or do you feel you were led here? It doesn't matter, either way because you're here. This might sound weird but, you are an onion. Well maybe not yet, but definitely the beginning of one. Don't worry, …

If You do One Thing in this Life, Find Connection

If you're like me, this year's Valentine's Day will be looking a bit different from ones past. Valentine's Day used to be another day in which I received a material gift and gave a material gift. It was also a day of acknowledgment of my significant other, but let's be honest, gifts. Whether I received …

My Son is My Teacher

Parenthood is a fascinating journey. I often feel as though I'm learning more than I'm teaching, and I feel like it should be the other way around. But as I journey on, I realize time and time again that this is as much of a learning and growing process for me as it is for …

Marriage and Kids, It’s F*CKING Hard!

The dream. Ah, the dream. Is that all it was? Love sick, love spells, blinded by love, love, love, love. I swear it happened once. I was almost 21. I know, so young. But that’s when I met him. The man who changed it all. Changed my life. Gave me life. Ignited the fire within …
