Honesty is free, yet more valuable than pretty much anything else.
With each birthday, I feel more compelled to celebrate.

It’s really hard to keep moving forward without ever looking back.
A relationship that is healthy, positive and satisfying sometimes seems like a lot for which to ask. Settling for less, though, isn’t an option.
Maybe I read too many Danielle Steele novels as a teenager, but just once it would be nice to feel like someone fought for me. Not literally, but by playing their A game consistently.
