Baby Steps

So, it’s been a minute! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat in front of my MacBook and began drafting a post. At some point, I’d either become distracted and lose focus in one way or another or I simply found myself stuck in thought. No matter the cause, it always leads to…

Dear 2018

Dear 2018, You have been a year of clarity and growth. You reintroduced me to myself while also uncovering parts I’d never met. Parts that I’d never been brave enough to welcome or just fought so hard to avoid. You were a year of truth and revelation. A year of acceptance. Along with acceptance came…

Forever Inspired. (Dear Kyrzayda. Dear Readers.)

CHOOSE!

This morning upon checking my email, I realized that my timeline is filled with a bunch of… mess! Celebrity news & gossip, ratchet video footage, enhanced asses in Fashion Nova outfits, exposed boobs, grey sweat pants and more! I decided to go through the accounts that I am following and as I went down the…
