Declare It!

Podcasts are becoming a way of life. And you can never have too many. In May 2019, I had the pleasure of being a guest on the “Declare it!” Podcast with Khadijah RBZ. It was my first time on a Podcast. There was laughter, girl talk and some declaring. Take a listen and make sure to head over to iTunes,…

Nourished

Late nights under the moonlight is a night to take advantage. It’s the kind of night that you inhale possibility. It’s the kind of night that you take in all that’s around you, understanding that the same creative hands that perfectly designed the moon and the stars and all that we gravitate too; are the same hands that breathed life…

Anger Management

I look at my life and wonder why I am like this.-Angry! There have been many times I have lashed out my frustrations and anger at people that I have cared about the most because I was hurt. My emotions got the best of me, and my tongue became a weapon. Time and time again, I find myself feeling guilty…

Simplicity is in the soil

There was a time when I hated plants/flowers in homes. I hated the thought of taking life from its source just to adorn one’s home. Honestly, I hated the thought of receiving flowers as gifts more than I despised plants. But hey, dislike for one made me dislike all. Flowers as gifts are the worst sign of love in my…

Detached

I write when I write. It’s been a minute since I have attempted to post. Someone brought to my attention that I do not post as often as many other individuals that have blogs. That made me smile, mainly because I don’t write for others per se; I write for me. I appreciate those that my writings have touched or…

They are teaching me more than I could ever teach them. What they are teaching me is how to see me because I see them. I was one who never wanted…

Singleness is a curse

sI’m single. Help! I’ve noticed that being single has become like a disease. So many individuals, mainly women, have a hard time being single. I am not sure if it has to do with social media that has created this need. A need to be with someone as if being alone with yourself is not enough. It’s as if being…

Removing fear

It’s a new day Seventy people stood between myself and fear, a fear I thought would always get the best of me. This fear I held on to for so many years was not fear at all; it was me not believing in myself. The 70 people that I speak of are the people who sat in chairs with their…

Love, what a beautiful thing!

I’m not quite sure why but the thought of love has been on my mind. I don’t know if a conversation that I had with one of my male friends sparked it or if I fell and bumped my head. Although, I did notice a shift in my desire after hearing him gush about a new woman in his life.…

The journey of quiet

Noise This week I participated in my first meditation session. I have meditated on my own before but have never been able to calm my mind enough to allow the meditation to be effective. I would let things distract me, and I’d never continue in the very thing that my life, especially in this season, needs. I am already a…
