Be A Woman Who Makes History and Does Not Become History

It seems like a couple of times a month I am retweeting or reposting a plea for a young woman to come home to her family. She has gone missing without notice and the people who love her desperately want her to return. Within days, or weeks. A body is found. A significant other isContinue reading “Be A Woman Who Makes History and Does Not Become History”

Nice Guys Don’t Finish Last, But They Should

Watching “This Is Us” has spawned new dawn of life lessons about love and relationships. I wrote an article about my fears of marriage and motherhood, but now I want to dwell on how people think being nice is a compatibility factor. Beth consistently rebuffed Randall but he never took her reservations seriously. His nicenessContinue reading “Nice Guys Don’t Finish Last, But They Should”

Whose Birthday Is It?

“All I got is these broken clocks, I ain’t got no time just….burning daylight” SZA Another year that I am grateful to see, and I plan to make the best of it. This day is one where I always reflect on where my life has been and where I want it to go. Through everyContinue reading “Whose Birthday Is It?”

Crooked Letter

There are people who believe that all Mississippians are backwoods hillbillies with no electricity and speak in broken english. There are also people who believe that our nation is the strongest its ever been and that our current leadership is leading the nation to once again be a force in front of the rest ofContinue reading “Crooked Letter”

Cancelled: A Short Story About Your Fave

One of my favorite Amy Winehouse songs is called “What is it about men?”. This is a very good question, but even better is ‘What is it about anyone?’ man or woman. The older we get the more fairy tales become drastically unbelievable. In this day and time, figures we looked up to on television,Continue reading “Cancelled: A Short Story About Your Fave”

March To The Beat Of Your Own Drum

I used to have a hard time being myself. I mean unapologetically me. Classical music is my favorite genre, you will rarely see with matching clothes, and I am currently experimenting with my natural hair texture and learning about what makes me tick. All things I should embrace right? It has not always been that easy. IContinue reading “March To The Beat Of Your Own Drum”

Don’t Live For The Weekend

I am kidding with this title right? I know, I know…I am guilty of this myself but we have to stop doing this! This morning, I wrote the serenity prayer about 10 times. I was just not in the mood for the inevitable foolishness that comes with any workday, also known as a day whenContinue reading “Don’t Live For The Weekend”

Tis The Season

You want to know what my mom and I are doing Christmas morning? We’re going to serve the homeless. I am actually very excited about it. I have been through a LOT this year (whew) but I also have been tremendously blessed and I do not take it for granted. We should always pay itContinue reading “Tis The Season”

You Can Fix What Isn’t Broken

If DJ Khaled were to see the title of this post he would probably respond with: “They don’t want you to be a magician; they don’t want you to improve yourself”. Listen to me, and Khaled, you can absolutely fix what is not broken. When we get a regimen of any sort down we stickContinue reading “You Can Fix What Isn’t Broken”
