Go Back!

One of the greatest moments of my life was when I walked across the stage and received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and seeing the smile on my grandmother and mother’s faces. I walked across that stage and felt like one of the biggest burdens had been lifted off my shoulder, I could proudly say…

Let it Go

When to let go… My greatest quality is also my biggest flaw. Loyalty. This is a word I’ve heard so many men use when describing their perfect mate “I want her to be loyal.” When in actuality many of them need to say ” I want her to stick around while I try and figure…

True Life: I’m Needy

I’m learning that giving hints doesn’t always get me what I want. When it comes to me and being needy I very seldom ask for what I want…because being a black woman who wants affection and attention from the man she’s dating is a negative thing (insert serious eye roll), especially if he feels as…

Morning Thoughts

This morning I woke up and every problem I had was on my mind. I laid in bed thinking about these major issues and became frustrated. At 30 this isn’t where I’m supposed to be…life should be different. As the thoughts kept popping up I closed my eyes and tried to pray. I couldn’t even…

Shea Moisture

Dear Future Husband, I don’t get in my feelings about much…well not much that doesn’t have to do with me. I will hear news stories and think “Awww, that’s sad” or send you a link with a few thoughts, but that’s usually the extent of my reactions. This past week I was in my feelings…

A bit of Truth

After a crazy night I thought I would write out a bit of my truth.  Dear Future Husband, I despise when someone is smacking. No, I need you to understand that a part of me wanted to slap this chick about an hour ago.  I know we all have pet peeves, but I think when…

“You’re too Much”

Written February 8, 2017 It 1:30 am on a random Wednesday am I’m just up. It seems as though my mind likes to focus on things I try to brush off around this time so I thought I would write about it.  This morning I’m wondering how many people have been told “you’re too much”…

Cash Money taking over…

Dear Future Friend,   I was riding in the car last week and realized that I can go from Kurt Carr’s “One Word” to rapping every line of Cash Money’s “Back that thang up” in a period of an hour. I was listening to Spotify and had a good mix going when all of a…

How much do you Weigh?

This morning I decided to remove some weight out of my life…I was tired of feeling run down and exhausted carrying around dead weight, daily. The issue with this weight is that it’s not simple to remove. There’s no amount of cardio I can do, doesn’t matter how much I eat right, or a procedure…

Change of Mind

I promise you at least twice a week I sit in my living room and ask, “Lord, what are you doing with my life?” That feeling of being stuck consumes me and I feel like running, but have no idea where to go.  Before I decided to sit down and write this I reevaluated my…

Sesame Street

  I remember sitting at home waiting for Sesame Street to come on a child, the moment I heard the theme song I would get up and sing along! I watched it with such excitement and was ready to “learn”. My favorite clip is from when Kermit did the African Alphabet…one word, AMAZING! I watched…

Let’s Be Real

I was scrolling through social media when I came across a proposal video. I watched it, and many others like it, and I realized what I don’t want anymore.  A year ago I would have my dream man, proposal, and wedding laid out for you in a matter of seconds. I knew everything I wanted,…
