Wandering Ruby: Hope Deferred →
An excerpt… I definitely feel more like I am back to my old self again, and the hurt and feelings of worthlessness now gone. My memories of this guy grow more faint each day. Guess it is true that when they say that if it’s “out of sight”, it’s also “out of mind”. But I will admit I still miss him… or perhaps, I miss the idea of him. In a way, I think that–as hurtful as the result was for...

As Good As It Gets? →
Inspired by a talk I had with one of my besties. I’m sure a lot of other single young women can relate. The past two weeks have been such a rollercoaster for me, and it made me wonder whether I was being too picky or too meticulous in dating and choosing someone, especially when presented with a guy who seems to possess traits you want… yet you let it go for fear that they might not be...

And it still wants you. And I feel like a little piece of myself dies just a little when I see the place she has taken in your life that I had hoped to take. But it cannot be… At least, not NOW.

Reason, Season, or Lifetime
Reason, Season, or Lifetime People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty; to provide you with guidance and support; to aid you physically, emotionally or...

The Wandering Ruby Blog: "Picky McPickerson" →
Haven’t written a new entry in ages on my blog that specifically focuses on the journey of single Christian women like myself :) On this one, I share about a conversation that I had with my Dad about dating… and choosing who to date (and eventually marry). Feel free to read it! And if you like it, feel free to share it or reblog the link on Tumblr!

Your life has a purpose. You are LOVED. You are CHERISHED. You are WORTH IT. And no matter how things may seem at the moment, you are NEVER ALONE. Every step you have ever taken, every situation you have ever gone through, every moment you have ever experienced are woven together to create a rich, intricate tapestry that is unique to the journey that God has had in mind for you even before you...
stfuego: Respect yourself first. →
Yeah it really sucks when the person who calls you her best friend, who you arduously managed to bottlecap your feelings for, invites you and another dude over at the same time, and then asks you, “So would you ever build a shrine? [Like Helga Pataki in Hey Arnold [a shrine to me?]]”. In front… Indeed. Respect and love yourself enough to walk away when needed.
