This Is For You

Today, I completed a HUGE goal! I graduated college. God has an interesting sense of humor. You see, on May 13, 2013 I walked across the stage at George Mason University. Unfortunately, I failed my summer courses and never got my degree. I went back in 2015 and failed half of my classes. So many […]

No Self-Rejecting in 2021

A Facebook friend/ college associate of mine posted this perfectly timed message that I want to share with the masses: How often have you found yourself putting off things/experiences or hiding talents? What about not going out for positions/promotions? Maybe you don’t tell people your true feelings for fear of being rejected? I’ve personally done […]

Meet People Where They Are

I’ll be honest, over the years (and even recently) I’ve been a real shitty friend. I could blame it on my mental health..I could blame it on my childhood..I could blame it on my miscarriages..I could blame it on anything other than myself but the truth is: I’m selfish. I’ve come accept that about myself. […]

Take A Break!

Okay y’all… I know, it’s been a minute and I’m sorry!!! I had to recharge. This past month has been extremely emotionally draining. Ya girl was TIRED! Between being short-staffed at work, stressing over my class, doing hair part-time, taking care of my injured boyfriend, and having my bonus baby with us, I was already […]

Lost & Found

You ever get into a space where nothing makes sense? When it feels like you’re just lost and don’t know who you want to be, where you want to go, or what you want to do? Like you’re just walking around in a fog? It can’t just be me.. Remember how I told y’all I […]

2020 Vision

Here we are, 9 months into the year that pretty much everyone had such big plans for. I don’t know about you, but there have been quite a few times where I’ve said aloud, “2020 sucks ass!”. Then I came across this gem the other day: I don’t know her, but homegirl is 100% correct! […]

Speak Life

One of my favorite quotes says, “The power of life and death lies in the tongue. Speak life into people.”…now don’t ask me who said it because I honestly can’t remember right now, but I do know that it’s true. Recently I found out something about a close friend’s childhood that broke my heart. It […]

Take What You Need 💜

This morning before I left out for work, I kissed my boyfriend like I normally do. He asked, “Do you have money?”, like he normally does. I responded, “Ehh, kinda”.. to which he said, “Take what you need”. I didn’t take anything because I didn’t truly need it, but all day those four words replayed […]

Institutionalized Love

You left your heart inside those walls, but she needs you to do more than just penetrate hers. Love is lost between your lips and her heart. Saying you love her has fallen on deaf ears because your actions are inconsistent… But she’s persistent. She wants to love you through it all but she’s getting […]
