Types of Breakups

By: Gabriela Yareliz I’ve noticed there are breakups that are for the best. We almost sigh in relief as witnesses, with the involved parties. But then, there are breakups that change the course of life and time as we know it. There are ruptures that leave a rip in the universe. Harmony ceases and theContinue reading “Types of Breakups”

I Don’t Know Why I Cry

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, we are looking at the last sad ballad (the last songs we will look at are happier– Happy Gwen). If our previous post was on “Early Winter,” we’ll call this one the late winter ballad. After the demise of her 13-year marriage to Gavin Rossdale due to his apparently multiple infidelities,Continue reading “I Don’t Know Why I Cry”

Reaching Impressionable Minds With Hope

By: Gabriela Yareliz How do we help children who have suffered the trauma of a broken home to have a vision for a better future? This was something I was meditating on.

Choose Life

“We are impacted by the choices of the people who came before us; we are impacted by the choices our parents made, in fact, there’s some things about who you are that you are that because someone chose that for themselves, and they passed it on to you— and a lot of times, it’s theContinue reading “Choose Life”

Reflections Before Bedtime #62

By: Gabriela Yareliz Sometimes, the simplest thing has the most profound meaning to a person. Everyone has a favorite candy, no? Mine is the M&Ms with peanuts. You know, the yellow bag. People who sat next to me in my law school clinic knew that if they saw a yellow M&M bag with a bagContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #62”

Kourtney and Scott

By: Gabriela Yareliz It was reported that Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner are splitting after 22 years of marriage. Sad. I heard this on Kidd Kraddick in the Morning’s Hizziewood Hizzle. J-si said, who would’ve thought that out of all of the relationships since the Keeping Up With the Kardashians started, that the only peopleContinue reading “Kourtney and Scott”
