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

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

Change of Plans

So I’m thinking that my goal of reading 26 books this year may have been a bit ambitious. We are at the last day of the second month and I literally JUST opened the first page to my second book of the year last night! Reading a book from front cover to back every two…

It’s Ok To Not Be Okay.

Today, I realized that I’m not ok. You know what else I realized? It’s okay. Typically, I’d keep days like this to myself. I’d have my moment and that would be that. Well today I want to blog about it. Not for attention or sympathy of any sort. If you know me, you know that’s…
