Collective Efforts

A few hours ago, I geared up (face mask & gloves) and I left my house headed to grab a few items that I needed from the store. COVID-19 has not only cleared the road, but the shelves inside all of our favorite grocery stores, pharmacies and convenience stores are completely scarce. It feels like…

37: A Redefined Birthday

  I made it and I’m so very thankful. I feel blessed. COVID-19 has been a great detriment across the world. So many lives have been taken and so many more have fallen sick. Much of the country has been locked down in one way or another and we’ve been forced to find solace in…

Keep That Same Energy

On February 1st, just like clockwork, timelines exploded in black history facts, tributes and pride. Two days into March and those very same feeds are now rather lackluster. That’s right.

Answers

One of the toughest things I’ve struggled with in life is finding resolve in the questions that aren’t accompanied by an answer. You know, the how’s and why’s in life. For me, sometimes the answers are still only half the battle. If the answers don’t make sense in my mind, then they are just as…

Long Journey Short

Long journey short… So about a year ago I entered into a very uncomfortable space. I had woken up one too many mornings and I had fallen asleep one too many nights feeling personally unfulfilled. For almost 12 years I’d put myself at the very bottom of my priority list. Between motherhood, marriage & life,…
