My Guest Post for Memoirs of a Single Dad

I was recently asked to guest write for Memoirs of a Single Dad, a very cool site with a blog that I frequently follow. The invite was such a nice surprise, and I was very honored and humbled. (Thank you, Daniel!)

I decided to write about stepping out of my comfort zone. After all, I'd been living outside of "my zone" since the separation last summer. And since then, I've had to learn how to cope. With the ex, with the kids, with my family, with his family and so on and so on.

Below is a nugget from my guest post, but you can click here to read it in its entirety.

It’s six o’clock on a Thursday night. I’m nervous and I’m having second thoughts.

The Chicken Little inside me says, “Don’t go!” The Aztec warrior inside me says, “Do it!”

I’m staring at the mat on the floor. Images of me throwing the damn thing in the closet under the stairs are running through my head. That’s where most things in my house are silenced. Out of sight, out of mind.

The mat I’m referring to is a yoga mat.

In less than one hour I will be attending my first ever yoga class. That’s if I show up. Still undecided…

After you check out my guest post, I highly recommend you check out MOSD's “The Dating Game” series and the “The Dating Rules of Engagement."


  1. Thanks so much for contributing to my blog! Like I said in my intro, you had me hooked quite some time ago, but your My Kid's Best Friend is a Psychic posts convinced me I had to ask you to come join me. Thanks again and I hope this isn't the last of our collaborations!

  2. You are too kind. Thank you again for the invite and for the opportunity. Let's definitely keep in touch. :)
