Heal, Because your Future Depends on It!

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, I’m sending love to all those who are fighting a battle to maintain their mental health. I’m sending love to all of those who are taking this walk alone and  silently.

With Growth and Change Comes Discomfort

We’re one week down  with 51 more weeks to go until 2022! I know that seems like a lot of time but  if there’s one thing that 2020 has taught me, it’s definitely that time will never stop for anyone. Like most, I entered 2020 feeling like I was going to crush my goals andContinue reading “With Growth and Change Comes Discomfort”

Don’t Allow the Holidays to Catch you Slipping!

The holiday season is generally and historically known as a time of joy, love, and family, but for many people it’s a time that will catch you slipping; caught  sitting in our feelings,  self-sabotaging, getting caught up in situationships and/or forcing connections (romantic, friendships, and family) that are no longer meant for us.

Be Blameless: Own Your Part in the Relationship

The end of my marriage caused me to level up and grow in ways that I didn’t think was possible. It forced me and gave me the opportunity to be real with myself and hold myself accountable. The saying, “it takes two” is real and I understood it more than ever when I was aloneContinue reading “Be Blameless: Own Your Part in the Relationship”

Signs You’re Not Ready to Date After a Breakup

I’ve heard the saying many times, “the best way to get over that man or woman is to find a new one” but is this really a long term solution? Breakups can be hard and even harder to heal from but dating or getting into another relationship too soon due to the “quick fix” approachContinue reading “Signs You’re Not Ready to Date After a Breakup”

Why Expressing Your Needs in a Relationship is Crucial?

Initially it appeared that Lena Waithe would string us along this entire season of The Chi and we’d never see Keisha reunited with her family. However, within these past few episodes we’ve finally received some resolve. While this was one of the central storylines this season, I am actually more intrigued by Papa and Miesha’sContinue reading “Why Expressing Your Needs in a Relationship is Crucial?”

Great Achievements Involves Taking Greater Risks

Are you still wondering when this will all be over and hoping for things to go back to normal, or should I say back to the way they were before Covid-19? Well newsflash, we can’t go back! I’ll quote myself and say, “When the dust settles and this pandemic is over, things shouldn’t go backContinue reading “Great Achievements Involves Taking Greater Risks”
