UNTITLED

Today was… a lot. Where do I start? I guess the beginning would be a good place. I woke up with an aching back. I also woke up pretty anxious. I was thinking about how I needed to finish getting the kids’ passports. Random as is seems, the thought first entered my mind yesterday after…

I’m serious this time!

No really. I’m serious. I wanted to insert “lol” but I didn’t, JUST to let you know how serious I am. I am a serial yo-yo when it comes to my weight. Since entering motherhood in 2006, the struggle has been real. I gain. I lose. I gain. I lose. At this point, I’m just…

I’m annoyed

Since yesterday, my timelines have been filled with posts about this Ayesha Curry interview from The Red Table Talk. I’ve even received a couple texts about it. A lot of the posts basically taunted or attempted to shame her in some way about her admissions of feeling a bit insecure about not receiving male attention similar…

One week…(and a day) Post-Op

For a few years now, I have been wanting to look into having a breast reduction. I’ve had 3 children and let’s just say that motherhood did a number on me! From producing 8 oz of milk from each breast with my first child and sharing that same faucet with my 2nd and 3rd child…

To all the Healers of the World

Why is it that we give much better advice than we take? No really, why it is? We give such great and sound advice to the people around us, yet we seem to forget those same words of wisdom and direction when we find ourselves in need of it. A couple weeks ago, I was…

Mommy Confessions

5:30 a.m. – The alarm goes off.  lol Yeah right! What was I thinking? SNOOZE! 6:00 a.m. – I wake the kids up with my eyes still shut. I’m exhausted, but time to get back to the program, but… after one more snooze. SNOOZE! 7:00 a.m. – Grrr…! Okay I am up now, but the exhaustion…

Cincinnati

After several flight delays, my daughter, niece and myself FINALLY made it to Cincinnati at 12:13 a.m. THIS MORNING. I have now made it safely back home in less than 24 hours. Talk about a turn and burn! Wait. Is it “turn and burn” orrrr “burn and turn?” lol Whatever. I went there and came…

Growth, Self Love & Power

My best friend and I were having a conversation in which she was expressing her not so happy feelings towards her stretch marks she’s gained since having 3 kids. Two of them and her latest, being a set of twins which not only left her with stretch marks, but also a little extra skin. I…

Intentional Kind of Day

Today, I woke up DETERMINED to make my day eventful. I wanted to be intentional.  I must say, between the heat outside today and the fatigue that followed, I had to do a lot of self-reminding. I reminded myself that today is a gift; one that many didn’t see and that I am not guaranteed…
