    Directness

    Yesterday morning, I was planning to hang out with a friend. I was in San Francisco, close to where she lives, and we were going to grab a cup of tea or light bite together before I began my drive back home to LA.

    The best way to say thank you

    A couple of weeks ago, I was on a camping trip with a bunch of people.
    As I was traipsing along on one of our hiking excursions, an amazing idea hit me! I knew exactly what I wanted to do, who I wanted to do it with and exactly how I wanted to do it. Only problem was I didn’t know how to get start […]

    Loving someone when all you want to do is slam the door (to your heart) in their face

    I am a huge fan of David Deida, and this morning a quote of his popped up on my FB feed.
    “Within a relationship, your responsibility is stated as ‘I am not going to retract my heart from you, even if you’re being an asshole.’”
    Yes! It’s so true!
