Quarantine Breakup

So, I realize that the title seems a bit dramatic but trust me, the story is less than such. The breakup story is so subpar that I prefer to not divulge in the nitty gritty details.

I was technically in a relationship for the last month and a half. Things were progressively “improving” but nowhere near great. In the beginning of a new relationship there should be nothing but rainbows and butterflies, but most times, my heart didn’t flutter. I really liked him and wanted everything to work but my discernment and intuition just wouldn’t allow me to turn a blind eye to some of his actions and words.

Long story short, we didn’t make it…

Now on to the purpose of this post… Me! I learned so much during this time such as: I enjoy being in a relationship, I can actually be domestic (go figure), I am able to stay in the house for at least 5 days at a time, I got some GREAT friends, God always has my back and I am worthy.

I do long for the day when my husband will walk into our home and I am able to present him with a new recipe I tried from Pinterest. The great news is that I still know my worth and I am not willing to make that happen with just anybody. I desire a man who has integrity and loyalty, is faithful, follows Jesus, knows how to lead and is 100% comfortable being the man God created him to be.

To me, this doesn’t seem like a lot to ask but it has been a journey! Eight years of being presented with less than ideal situations and being expected to “just deal with it”. I have learned a lot concerning myself and how I operate with others over these years. This last “relationship” was a huge deal for me, because I haven’t allowed myself to get that far with anyone in a ridiculously long time.

I left that situation whole, happier and with a deeper appreciation for God! God will never allow His children to stray so far that He can’t reach them. I am at peace, and I pray that you are spending the rest of your good quarantine days attaining perfect peace as well!

Have you had any life changes since the quarantine? How are you handling life now? I would love to hear in the comments below:

Welcome to Makings of Malisa

Hello! I am so glad that you decided to stop by and get to know what Makings of Malisa is all about! I hope that you find the time to engage and that we can learn from each other.

Now, let’s get the pronunciation of my name correct…

My name is Ma-Lisa.

I have no clue why my parents had to be so difficult but for some reason my name gives most people the hardest time. People call me Melissa (I hate this by the way), MY-Lisa (oddly, I kind of like this one), Mar-Lisa (I am still searching for the “r”. Let me know when you find it) and the list goes on!

When I meet someone who pronounces my first name correctly from reading it, I instantly love them for life!


I am a writer to my core. I pick up writing and put it down often but like that old boyfriend who didn’t treat you right the first time, writing just keeps coming back to my heart. Writing (and dancing) is my ‘Happy Place’. It gives me a fuzzy little feeling that is probably the equivalent of wearing a Snuggy while drinking a cappuccino, walking on the beach with your significant other, or a kid waiting on Santa. I hope you get my point.

Writing is Life. Writing is Peace. Writing is Joy!

I plan to use this blog to talk about life, goals and everything in between.

About me – I am…
A Disciple of Christ
Far from Perfect
In Love with People
Not too Fond of Animals
Currently Single
Super Dope
Goal Oriented
Kinda Sappy
Mostly Happy

So this is enough about me for now. If you want to know more than please subscribe! I can confidently say that our quality of life will increase with each post. I hope that you take the time to engage and we can all learn from each other.
