We Should Redefine Life’s Timelines

A few year’s back, we wrote a blog post about redefining what it means to be successful. This has been one of our most viewed posts, and although I can’t say why exactly other than the fact that I think it resonates with people. I thought we needed to revisit the subject, but in another…

Moody

Struggling to balance my head and my heart, Feeling tired, overwhelmed and cooped up, Floating, suspended in my thoughts and feelings, Not sure if I’m going up or down, Knowing the feelings will disappear in time, But sinking deeper and deeper into them, Thinking thoughts normally not my own, Who is this negative person, I…

What Was So Wrong With How We Grew Up?

I don’t know if it’s inherent in me getting older and naturally thinking of the “good old days” or if it’s because I’m a mother and I am now making some of the same decisions my mother would have made, but it’s got me thinking of just how much things have changed. Some for the…

The feeling of loneliness has been sitting with me for so long, we have become companions, Its comforting warmth wraps around me every night, reminding me of the void I feel, Trying to navigate the array of new emotions I never thought I would be feeling, Loneliness engulfs me and let’s me know I am…

Feeling stronger on my own,…

Why I Am No Longer Scared Of Starting Over

Change, they say is inevitable. People change, the seasons change, time is always changing…but why is it so hard to take the leap and make a massive change in our lives? We’re unhappy about things, but we’d much rather complain, but do nothing about it. Then there’s the debilitating fear of the unknown, of having…

Life’s Tapestry

You are not your illness You are not your worries, doubts and fears, It is all merely a thread in the fabric of your life’s tapestry, Loss, upset, shifts and tears, All simply a part of your history, One that is ever changing and evolving One that our future is still deciding, You are not…

Removing the Veil On Aunt Flo

Monthly visitor, or like the one we went for, Aunt Flo, so many cryptic words to describe the same process- most of us go through it and yet it’s so hush hush. Even in the commercials for feminine hygiene products, they can’t even show it in a realistic way. Women with massive grins on their…

RnR Interview: Blogger & Writer Jenn Shenouda-Levine

Witty, charming, open and honest. She has written and shared her personal anecdotes about her own mental health with such openness and honesty you can’t help but feel like you’ve known her all your life! Although we attended high school together, I have low-key stalked and been a supporter of her writing and work for the…
