Where Do You See Purple?

I’ve found myself grieving in the past few days. I’m feeling pain and loss, as I am realizing I have so limited my life, sorting out what I too quickly deem unimportant, that I didn’t appreciate Prince for the awesome talent that he was. I didn’t allow myself to be

Who Do You Love, Baby?

You’ve probably heard people say, “Learn to love yourself!” or, “You need to love yourself more!” I thought that they knew something about me that I didn’t. That somehow my behavior was revealing a truth about a flaw that they could see that I could not. I thought it meant

Mean Girls

Do you know what everyone says about you behind your back? Hmm? They say that you’re a homeschooled jungle freak, that’s a less hot version of me! (Regina George in Mean Girls) Regina George, the high school queen bee who leads a pack of mindless believers called the Plastics, and

What Robin Williams Teaches Us

We lost Robin Williams, and I am so sad for him and for all of us. By all accounts, he struggled in his life, particularly with depression and addiction. Since I, too, struggled with depression and addiction, I understand the depths it can take a person. Unfortunately for all of
