Across the table, he stared at me with dreamy blue eyes and laughed gently. “How in the world did I end up with such a great girl like you?” he asked playfully.  I shrugged and smiled at him. “Oh, I don’t know. I guess I could ask how I ended up with such a great guy like you.” He reached for my hand, and I gently rested mine in his.

You know that crushed feeling you get when the guy you like starts dating someone else? I wrote this poem on the same day that I found out the guy I secretly liked was dating someone else.

I don’t know if I’ve ever felt so exhausted in my entire life. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I know it’s not strictly physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual exhaustion. It’s more like all of those things. I can’t seem to get on top of my life.

I’m Thankful for You

Ever since I started Tizzie’s Tidbits of Truth in 2015, I’ve received texts, emails, and words of praise for my writing. Not because I’m an outstanding writer who deserves them. Not because my posts are oh-so-insightful. Not because my writing style or format is particularly excellent. But because countless individuals have made the conscious choice to encourage me.
