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….

2019… LISTEN!

First off, can we talk about how fast this year went by? It feels like I was JUST sitting in this same spot typing Dear 2018 & Hello 2019! About a couple of weeks ago, a guy inside of Publix told me that as you get older, time seemingly moves much faster. I didn’t put much…

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…
