When Grief Strikes: How to Help A Friend Through Grief

We traveled to Florida as a family a lot when I was growing up. We were familiar with the area, as my grandparents had lived there for years before they passed away. Every time we went to Florida, a trip to the cemetery to visit my grandparents was inevitable. My dad, their son, actually enjoyed being closer to them and he told me that he loved standing there, talking to them in his head about how I was growing up, how life was for us.

How to Stop Being a Control Freak

You wouldn’t know it from the title of this blog post, but I have a soft spot in my heart for control freaks. If you would consider yourself a control freak, then there’s likely a reason why – someone saw something in you that was valuable, or you know there’s a better way to do things.

As we approach the month of May, you’re bound to see celebrations of women everywhere, lots of pink, and lots of flowers. Being a woman is fun and beautiful for sure, but it’s hard too. It’s easy to get caught up in ourselves or in the people who need our attention the most – and our friendships can suffer for it sometimes. Today, we are talking about how...

How to Be Positive (and not annoying) for Someone Who Is Struggling

How to Be Positive (and not annoying) for Someone Who Is Struggling

I had a cringe-worthy moment when I saw a friend post something on Facebook about the kind of bad week she was having. She was looking for support and maybe a little guidance to get her through a couple of storms. A few friends commented with some affirmations: “you’re doing great! Keep your head up! You can do it!” Look, I get it. You want to say something. You want to help. The first thing inclination on how to be positive and excitable to make the hurting party smile a little bit is an affirmation that comes straight from the...
