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

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…

CHOOSE

My best friend texted me a little while ago and told me that she’d been searching for a word for 2021. As she shared her word with me for this year, I began thinking about my own word. After a very brief contemplation, it hit me! CHOOSE. Everything that we could possibly want in life……

2020 Covid Escape (Girls only edition)

What a year 2020 has been. No need for any recaps. We are all aware of what it’s been like over the last 9 months, I haven’t written in a while. At least I haven’t managed to finish a post and actually press “publish.” It’s like having everything to say, wanting, and needing to say…

Curls On Curls On Curls

I typically go about 3 months or so in between loc re-twists. During my first year, I went to my loctician every 4 weeks, but that was mainly because I was new to locs and was really afraid of messing them up in any way. A lot of people cringe when I tell them how…

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…
