My Top 5 Red Flags

*Disclaimer: all names/examples have been slightly altered to protect the innocent and guilty*

I'm sure you're wondering why this red flag is draped around this cross. Well, don't strain yourself. I'm going to tell you. In honor of Resurrection Day, Holy Week, Passover and any other special holiday you recognized last week or none; I thought it was fitting since I'll be discussing my top five (5) red flags and how to escape them!

Tidal Shift

A moment of clarity changes everything.  It can completely alter the trajectory of one's life.  This is my story.  A shift in my universe occurred as I was modestly laying under an umbrella, on my vibrant Cynthia Rowley elephant beach towel. The ocean breeze was cooling my body at the same time the warm sun was beating down.   My ear buds were blasting Chill House radio on Pandora; this genre is like a mix between deep house and lounge music. They are sounds that make you want to close your eyes and lift your arms, as if you were at a chill rave with glow sticks.

After a series of unsuccessful relationships that have sent me spinning out of control like one of those awful, cheap carnival rides; spiraling into some of the most depressive states of mind was when I finally realized that I needed to make some radical life changes. I'm not talking about changing my hair color or going on a massive cleanse.  I'm not even talking about getting tattoos in order to commemorate the loss of a relationship.  All of which I've done by the way. Thankfully, the tattoo artist stopped me from writing Loser in a certain spot. But rather, I'm talking about something soul altering, even life changing. Something revolutionary.
