Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself

I am rounding out my thirties and honey chile, I have finally learned to love me. I guess I spent all this time trying to find out exactly who I was. I laugh way too hard and probably a little too much for some people’s liking. I have purple gums. My stomach reveals the burden of two beautiful children. I used to hate my curves but now I embrace them. My nose wrinkles up when I’m excited. I love to play in makeup and my closest friends do too. I have short hair and I make no apologies for it. My Read more […]

Church on A Friday

Are you sitting down? If not, grab a seat, I’m going in today. It doesn’t matter what your religious preference is, I love everyone but be warned that if you continue reading, you are having church today. Not church in the spiritual sense per say but I am bringing forth the word. Are you ready? Let’s do it! When I tell you that I have learned more lessons in the last 30 days about myself and leadership than I have in the last 3 years. I’m not joking. Quite frankly, I have been working to Read more […]

KING

There are so many messages around us if we can be still enough to listen. Our messages can come from places unexpected and even the youngest minds of the world. I spent some time researching how I would teach my daughters about Dr. King’s work. The scenario in which to do so changes with every year. When I was in school, we learned profusely about all history and it was so amazing to see nations overcome and great leadership through adversity. To know about Dr. King was an understatement. Had Read more […]

What Do They Say About You?

Greetings Friends, How often does yesterday’s trash hold us back from reaping today’s treasures? Recently, I was speaking to a dear friend and she was upset that someone had reminded her of a past transgression in which she dated a guy (I can’t quite refer to him as a gentleman because that is not the manner in which he behaved) who was extremely cruel and abusive to her. It bothered her so badly that she was moved to tears. In the midst of our conversation, I could see that her self-esteem Read more […]

Pain Gives Birth to Purpose

Pain Gives Birth to Purpose… Have you ever wondered why you were going through what you were going through? Life and it’s circumstances are not just arbitrarily happening to you. They are a direct result of the energy and action that you sow daily. Pain is a by product, a sum of parts; pain is inevitable. The greater question becomes: what will you do with it? This past weekend, I spent the a few short hours in Atlanta as a panelist for the WYN Conference hosted by WETV’s new series Cutting Read more […]

Are You Paying Attention?

If you notice, I don’t post very much on my social media platforms about political or social issues as I subliminally speak about them through my writings and frequent interactions. Trust me, I am awake and conscious at all times. I believe that my actions to create positive messages to counter much of what you see and hear speak louder. We are all listening, watching, reading and feeling the countless occurrences of violence, senseless hurting of people and slanderous exchanges from one person Read more […]

Whom Shall I Fear? 3 Ways to Silence the Negative Noise

I want you to ask yourself the following question: Whom shall I fear? If you think long and hard, chances are you can reply with the answer “no one”. Fear is defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. Simply put, fear is paralyzing and manifests in so many negative ways in our lives. It makes us jealous of the success of others, it prevents is from taking a leap of faith and it leaves us stagnant and our Read more […]

Faith Over Failure: 3 Ways to Not Accept Defeat

I dedicate this picture and day to the teacher who told my mother that I would never be able to write. More specifically, she said that I would have trouble writing a good essay in college. In hindsight, her words meant that she thought that I would be a failure. We all know that writing essays is one of the most crucial components of the collegiate experience. After her commentary, I not only graduated from college but went on to earn a total of three degrees and have a flourishing career as Read more […]

The Comfort Zone: 3 Reasons You Should Never Live There

  Pack your bags and prepare to leave. Have you ever noticed that you can’t receive anything if your hands are closed? No one can give or gift you with anything if your hands are closed. It is only at the point when we make a decision to open our hands that we are in a position to receive. I refer to the hands as a symbol of the heart, mind and spirit. In many instances, we close our hearts, minds and spirits to new gifts and new opportunities. Sometimes we are bound by fear and Read more […]

I Hope You Dance

I have always used writing as a tool to heal from within.  It provides opportunities for reflection and insight to your inner most thoughts and the sentiments of your heart.  Upon discovering a lump in my breast for the 3rd time, I wrote the following sentiments that speak to the very heart of my desire: If someone asks you what you want, there are a myriad of things that come to mind. However, when you are staring at the face of death, your true desires are revealed. I rarely speak on extreme Read more […]
