Cinderella Story

Have you ever heard someone’s story and thought How is this possible? They tell the story as if it’s magical, like a Cinderella story. Two particular people come to mind when I think of Cinderella stories, the first is Tyler Perry from homeless to self-made billionaire and the next is Steve Harvey from living inContinue reading “Cinderella Story”

It’s Time When It’s the Right Timing

In 2020 after the pandemic hit, I started writing a memoir about my relationships from childhood to adulthood. I wrote raw truth that I’ve kept vaulted for the most part. In 2021 after my moving back to Atlanta I continued writing and finished a very important part of my life. I also joined a well-knownContinue reading “It’s Time When It’s the Right Timing”

Let the Wind Blow

Last year was one of the best years of my life. I embraced it and still relish in all of it but truth be told January 1st all hell broke loose and my life went from sunny skies to a tornado touchdown or at least it felt that way. I thought for about 60 daysContinue reading “Let the Wind Blow”

Nothing is as Scary

I’ve done a lot of scary things in my lifetime. I left home when I was 17 years old with a brand new job and brand new bills all in the same week. I was scared to death. I had a baby after unknowingly getting pregnant on birth control pills. The delivery was an emergencyContinue reading “Nothing is as Scary”

I’m wading in muddy creek water. The water is hitting somewhere between my mid-calf to knees. All of aContinue reading “The Snake Dream”

Expectation is the Root

One of the most challenging lessons I believe we keep repeating because we are not getting it is “Expectation”. Expectations are attachments to outcomes from people and things. Every day I tell myself “Don’t expect” because I know if I expect then I have an attachment to how I want the outcome. And if theContinue reading “Expectation is the Root”

Are You Ready?

Sometimes our heart’s desires, our dreams, and our purpose is not revealed or come to fruition because we are not ready. The timing of an event is everything. If we receive it too early then we may not be able to handle it. And if we cannot handle it then sometimes what was meant toContinue reading “Are You Ready?”

The Higher Power

I wanna talk to the believers. Not to the Christians, not to the church, but to anyone who believes there is a “Universe”, a “Higher Power” a God that knows all, sees all, and empowers us through our gratefulness and the desires of our heart. Manifestations are real through our prayers, faith, and trust. OneContinue reading “The Higher Power”

The Hows Are Not Up to You

People with overanalyzing brains, like myself, tend to ask the infamous question “How?” a lot. “How” is a word that diminishes hope and dilutes faith. It is ultimately saying if I can’t see the details of the result, I don’t accept it. In my early years of therapy, my shrink would often suggest solutions andContinue reading “The Hows Are Not Up to You”
