The road ahead: Why 2021 won’t be the year of redemption

I don’t mean to sound like a Debbie Downer, but 2021 may not prove to be any better than 2020. Much of the disgust towards this year is heavily steeped in pure shock-value and the relentlessness that this year has had on serving up bullshit unfettered. This year will go down as the year of […]

I’m just not feeling it…

This post is not to be negative or a holiday deterrent, it’s just a representation of my truth and I for one will not pretend to be okay when I’m just not. Now when I pick-up my son on Friday, will I put on a happy face and smile through it? Of course! I even […]

The Conundrum

It’s 6:46 AM. I’m up, crying, saddened with a heavy heart and clenched cheeks. My stress has already consumed me and I haven’t even gotten out of bed yet. The sun hasn’t risen so I can hide for a little longer. My mind is racing. I’m thinking about everything. A worrier by nature, I just […]

It’s Okay to Settle

But, as I prepare to turn 37 and finish out this series finale in America, (prayerfully we’ll get picked up on another network) ya’ girl has some questions. Like, what does it mean […]

When I’m on my worst behavior…

…I torture myself with negative self-talk and limiting beliefs. But, part of the healing process involves being vulnerable so here goes…the first year after my diagnosis was the worst. I wasn’t on medication and I had hope that things would turn around quicker than they have (boy was I in for a rude awakening). Then […]

This is No Ordinary Love; Why Self-love is a Labor of Love

Image Credit: Unsplash.com In celebration of Labor Day and being inspired by Sade’s announcement that her entire catalog is currently on pre-order (go here to pre-order), I figured this would be a perfect time to discuss self-love. Why? Simple, self-love is one of those concepts that many of us fail at pretty bad.  To be honest, […]

A King Has Fallen

My heart is heavy AF right now. This has been one hell of a year and we still have four months to go. Legit, this year started on some bullsh*t with the tragic death of Kobe Bryant and little did we know that this would set the tone for the remainder of the hell that […]

Jack-In-The-Box

I mean whose idea was it to throw a creepy ass clown into a music-box that you had to crank to an even more creepy song […]
