Just like any new chapter in life, there are phases. If you read my first post for The Suddenly Single Chronicles then you may be aware that I was inspired to write about my dating and relationship experiences. Heartbreak is probably the hardest phase to get over, at least for me it is. What I can’t understand is, how do you get over a relationship that never really was a relationship? Then I realized, it’s not the ending of this non-relationship that has me feeling brokenhearted, it’s the man that I grew an emotional attachment to that has me feeling this way.
It’s amazing how hearing a song play on the radio can bring you to tears. No matter how many times you tell yourself you are going to be okay, you can never seem to get over the feeling of being brokenhearted. You might hit the gym, go to church, bury yourself into your work, or even try and meet someone else but that ache you feel is still there at the end of the day.

So I decided to launch The Suddenly Single Chronicles.
I love that picture! Yes that’s me looking cute with an orchid in my hair. A few weeks ago, February 3rd 2017 to be exact, I went to South Beach Miami, Florida to celebrate my 40th, yes 40th birthday. I had the time of my life! Now, there are a lot of things you see in that picture but one thing not pictured is the “man” that treated me to this most wondrous birthday getaway. The same man who once we returned asked me to keep the pictures of us “close to my heart”. In other words, keep them off social media. I had people asking me if I went to Miami alone. This got me to thinking, how did I get to this point? How did I fall for a man that, to quote Steve Harvey’s book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, won’t “PROFESS” his love […]
A few months ago, I wrote a post on how to keep track your finances. You can read that post here. The free download in this post is great! I use it myself and I have advised others in how to use it.

It’s that time of year again! The holiday shopping season is upon us. Almost everyday a new Black Friday ad or circular shows up in my mailbox along with a ton of emails and app notifications. As I look at all the cool things that will be on sale, I’m thinking about the gifts I have to buy for family, friends, and co-workers but I haven’t been writing down any of these great gift ideas. What better way to plan your gift shopping than with this perfect Holiday Gift Shopping List.
I love this easy to use list! I even added a box where you can add your budget and the total amount spent that way you can see if you spent more than you planned or have a little left over to buy yourself […]
This school year marks the start of my second year as a school counselor. One of the things I have learned is that building and gathering resources is an ongoing process. Today I want to share with you the top 6 things that I could not do without as a beginning school counselor. These items are the bare minimal things that get me through the school year even though I am still collecting and developing my school counselor program.
