Sugar, Gluten, Love: Tales from the Path to Joy - Making Excuses

I think about the awful places J put me - places I never in a million years thought I’d find myself. I have to dig deeply into my yogic lessons to recall that the good-for-you that you get does not always resemble the good-for-you that you imagined. Blessings often come in strange packaging. If I was drawn to him, it's because of something I needed, regardless of his intentions. I had to take responsibility for the excuses I made in order to be with him. Read More

Sugar, Gluten, Love: Tales from the Path to Joy - Sweet Cupcakes and Cold Turkey

She leapt in, no doubt like Jane, unaware of the secrets he kept stored away in his attic, in his closet, under the bed she lept into. Read More

Gluten, Sugar, Love: Tales From the Path to Joy - Inauguration Day

Yup. Just like sugar, his sweetness, his interest, his soft approach raised my dopamine – turned me into a dope fiend. And just like sugar, there was no substance, nothing to hold me over until my next fix. There was no talk of what had happened between us. Read More
