A Clean Break.

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  Happy Wednesday!  I don’t know about each of you but to be only fifteen days into the year, life is so good.  This year feels full of hope and seems to capture a wonder that I believe many of us were missing before.  I’m just getting a…

What If We Got It All Wrong?

“The internet requires men to do so much for relationships. He must text you good morning each morning, he must pay for dates, he must support every idea you ever had in your entire lifetime, he must be willing to be uncomfortable in meeting your family, he must be willing to eat what you eat, he has to workout the way that you workout, and he must be close to perfection – bringing and buying flowers at every single moment. Not one meme said, “Sis, if he’s sharing his dreams and goals with you, he’s a keeper!” Goals and dreams are not really romantic. They are practical.” ©️Simone Holloway, 2020

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  What’s up family?  Happy Friday!  Ladies and Gents, I’ve been in this really dope space where I’ve returned to the dating market.  Let’s just say that dating in 2019 is interesting, to say the least.  What I’ve learned in my short time back on the market is…

” I said hello, and asked what he wanted.  He responded with a classic lie: “I missed you.”  I would miss me too, I mean your girl is out here living her best life looking like a whole meal.  I said  “Ok.” Like what am I supposed to do about that? That seems like a personal problem to me.  He kept going, “I just wanted to talk to you.  I made a huge mistake.  You’re the one for me.  I need you in my life.  I want to marry you.”  My jaw dropped because for years I wanted to marry this man.  Can you imagine thinking that 3 years in is the time, then year five comes and no proposal, and finally, your relationship is over by year seven.  Instantly my past started contending with my future. “©Simone Holloway, 2019

Phone Calls

“I realized that I shied away from connection because it allowed people to see me. And I mean see me: in rawness, brokenness and undone.  Yet, it is this baring of oneself that builds intimacy and connection.  If you cannot see me fully, then you cannot know me and you cannot love me.”©Simone Holloway, 2019

A Lover of Love

This Is Love.

“The older I become, I realize that life is not about things and places but rather about our love relationships with people.  The way we love a soul lasts for an eternity, whereas position, prestige and the riches of this world will only last a lifetime.”©Simone Holloway, 2018
