Below is a poem that I wrote for Women’s Day a few years ago. I felt the need to share this today so hopefully it reaches who it needs to. Dear girl Dear girl near me, dear girl far, dear girl in my mind, dear girl in my heart Dear black girl, white girl, mixed … Continue reading To whom it may concern.
I’ve held these feelings in for a few months now. To be honest, I probably haven’t held them in as well as I think I have. I know 4 close friends off the top of my head who have probably gotten this story already, but in true writer fashion...I can’t get over it until I … Continue reading If God cares about me, why does He let people hurt me?
When did I get so down on myself that I ran out of things to criticize and moved on to how not reading was making me a horrible writer and editor? There are so many aspects of my life that I feel like I suck at, but NO! This was never one of those things.
I’m definitely ashamed of how long it’s taken me to finish this book, but here we are. I’ll admit that I didn’t really know what this book would hold and it started off a little slow for me, but as I continued to read, I feel like I got the message. We, as women, often … Continue reading Becoming by Michelle Obama book review
March is Women’s History Month. A lot of people may not talk about it, but the contributions of women...especially black women...are often undervalued. I could go on and on and on about it. My blog has been extremely dry the last few months, so what better way for us to get reacquainted than to give … Continue reading Dear Momma…
Although I technically started this book in December, I am counting it as #1 of my 24 book goal this year. So yay me! It had been a while since I’d read a personal development book. I have been swapped with reading fiction novels and editing and although it is a great problem to have … Continue reading WILLPOWER DOESN’T WORK BY BENJAMIN HARDY BOOK REVIEW
Recovering from how I treat myself is one of my biggest obstacles. I never really noticed how much what I think about myself privately effects how I move publicly. One thing I noticed that has to change is I walk with my head down. If I’m being honest, I’ve always had low self-esteem. I can … Continue reading Stop walking with your head down…you can’t see.
As I prepare to release my seventh book, I am stuck in business mode. My lovely editor has the pleasure of cleaning up my creative words, while I have the privilege to prepare press releases, orchestrate book signings, do social media promotion, etc. We are an independent publisher, which means I have to do most … Continue reading Fear of Flying
I am utterly disgusted at the amount of unfinished projects I have. I am disappointed in the amount of unmet goals I have set for myself. I'm often left confused in my own thoughts when I think about it. I was so hype about them when I set them. What happened? The motivation left and … Continue reading You are in the way of your goals.
Why is it so hard for us to be in the moment? Or take direction from others? It’s amazing how we can think we are doing everything right, but once we are placed in a situation where we cannot control the outcome, we freeze. We lose our self confidence and our way of thinking. What … Continue reading Mind your manners.
