Thanksgiving

I was just sitting here thinking of the day after Thanksgiving for me last year versus the day after Thanksgiving for me today. So many changes. A year ago I was digging through my refrigerator around this time remaking plates of leftovers for the family. I was removing and replacing foil on dishes, and playing…

Dead Locs

Last week I cut my locs off. Yep, after 5 years, I decided to cut them all off. For some this may be shocking, but if you knew me prior to my locs, it likely will not come as a surprise to you at all. In fact, a lot of people were surprised that I…

The List (Addendum)

I realized that I left out a VERY important piece from my last post! By the way, before you get too excited, this is NOT the Part 2 that I mentioned in the first part of THE LIST! Sorry! lol I just wanted to add that while it is important to understand what it is…

The List

If you would have asked me years ago what I wanted in a life partner, I would have said something completely superficial and surface level. We’ve all (at some point in our lives) composed a list of the attributes we’d want in our “dream man/woman.” Perhaps you wrote it down or maybe you just kept…

Experiences

My grandmother left me with a lot. When I say a lot, I don’t mean “things”. Truth is, the only tangible items I’ve been blessed enough to have were passed to me from someone else. Like one of the gowns she wore, I still wear NO MATTER HOW MUCH MY COUSINS AND FRIENDS TALK ABOUT…

Draft

I just sat down to write an entry and began looking through my drafts. You know the ones you start but for whatever reason, you don’t finish. This draft was dated August 3, 2021. Today I PUBLISH. Today <— That would have been the title. Today I cried. Today I reflected. Today I found gratitude….

Inpour

We are midway through this 2021 year and for me, it’s been so… emotionally full. You name it. I’ve felt it. Well…maybe not, but you get where I’m going. There have been A LOT of changes in my life. A lot of drastic changes. I won’t go through every single detail at this moment, because…

Life Is INDEED Short

We’ve all said it. We’ve all heard it. It seems that these three words have been on steady repeat my entire life but as of LATELY… its meaning has hit me in a way that it never has before. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older. Perhaps it’s because we are passing much younger and at…

Becoming

I haven’t always been teachable. I’ve been prideful, stubborn and often times defensive. I have not always been a great listener. I AM becoming the woman God intended for me to be. That’s it. Just a little self reflection. Carry on! Lol
