Something is happening. I can't quite put my finger on it, but things are changing. In me, around me, for me... something. The change is uncomfortable, to say the least. You know those movie scenes where there's a person standing in a crowd, and they're perfectly still looking at the camera while everyone else is moving … Continue reading In the Middle of a Shift
Love. It seems to be all I can focus on these days. For the first time since my marriage, I finally feel open and ready to let someone in. More than that, I’m craving it. I have grown and learned so much about myself over the last two years. I have let some in who … Continue reading The Ultimate Business Partner
I turned green this week. Not because I was sick or anything (I very rarely am! Oh wait, that's a different topic...), but because jealousy dug it's claws into my life. As usual, I'm going to say the things we aren't supposed to say. Stick with me to the end, though. I promise there's a happy ending. … Continue reading Takin’ on the Jellies!
I seem to be in a strange spot. It's a familiar one, but definitely not a comfortable one. It's the space between where I am and where I'm about to be. Maybe that sounds like... duh, we always are. But, I mean something deeper (of course). You see, I've put all this work in. I … Continue reading Owning It.
Can I just say a thing? Everything is going so well! When's the last time you've been able to say that? It's been a while for me. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of great stuff that has been happening in my life, but there's always some nagging voice in my head, or some lingering … Continue reading When Things Go Right

But, you guys are the real champs. All the love and support and encouragement are what continue … Continue reading FLI With Me
Kairos (n.): the perfect, delicate, crucial moment; the fleeting rightness of time and place that creates the opportune atmosphere for action, words, or movement. This is the only word I could find to sum up this past week. I finally took some time away; away from work, away from responsibilities, away from the city. I … Continue reading Kairos
It's been quiet, huh? I've been a bit of a mess. And it's pretty typical of me to not let anyone in until I've found a way to be okay. But, you know what? It's kind of lonely. And it's also not what MAVERICK is all about. If I'm going to say that this is … Continue reading On the Edge of Something
I've been reading a lot of poetry lately. Rupi Kaur, Atticus, Cleo Wade... they are speaking truths my heart doesn't know how to express yet. I am going to try and express an all-too-familiar feeling: - When your brain is consumed with the questions of "where am I going?" "What am I doing?" "What does … Continue reading Outer Space and Sweaty Thighs
This afternoon I read through all of my old posts. This is a pivotal moment for me... tonight I share my link with the world. Tonight I finally say "yes" to a dream that's been tucked away in my heart for over a year. I thought it would be special to scroll back and take … Continue reading Dream-er Turned Do-er
