About 3 years into my career, I was promoted to the coveted “Application Architect” at a manufacturing software subsidiary of a Fortune 500. At the time I was a force of youth and passion – but I hadn’t developed the skills necessary to really shine in the position. 1,127 more words

Finding Love The Old Fashioned Way

I met him in a coffee shop last summer.  I wasn’t looking for romance.  I was looking for free internet.  I asked to sit down beside him because the spot was in the sun.  616 more words

Love Notes

Della McGee reblogged this on Della McGee and commented:

This post showed up in my Facebook memories today. I wrote this 1 year ago about how I met my boyfriend. It made me cry as this relationship is now over. I am grateful that I had such a beautiful experience yet I keep painfully struggling with the loss of this love. I know that true love can never be lost. That the grief I am feeling isn't from the loss of love but from the loss of Self. The pain is from the story I keep writing about this breakup. This story includes, abandonment, rejection, unavailability, and obsession. This story was written long before I even met this man. Every day I am looking at my pain and seeing my story. Every day I have to choose love time and time again. Love of him, love of the experience but mostly love of Self. The gift here is that I am seeing patterns that have long been part of all of my relationships with men and even some women. This has been hard. I know I have the courage to see it through even on the days where I seem to fail myself. I no longer want to take this story into any future relationships. My true love is me.
