If it is to be, it is up to me.

In the Morning

In the morning, you have given gentleness, kindness, patience, calmness. In the vigor of the morning, you have provided sun-rays, birds chirping, a risen Savior, a song for the day that resonates in our hearts. Our mornings are normal. Historically, tears daily and wandering minds inquired, “Is it normal for individuals to cry everyday? IsContinue reading “In the Morning”

38 and GRATEful

A year of satisfaction for the sake of mankind and for the uplifting of my spirit. The year of 37, I shared my grief journey with countless widows. I have met and bonded with some phenomenal new people. I have failed my exam a few times. I have used an inappropriate tone and body languageContinue reading “38 and GRATEful”

Bruised & Broken

Be careful how your past hurt may be inflicted upon someone who genuinely loves you. The impact of your hurt may cause stress and fear within someone who wants what is best for you, desires to be near you. If you are not careful, your unhealed wounds will infect those who are near. This weekendContinue reading “Bruised & Broken”


Sometimes when you’re faced by obstacles, life seems pointless. Sometimes when you attempt to live your best life and adversity continues to hit, life seems futile. Sometimes when you are walking in the light and it seems as though it’s cloudy, you begin to feel lifeless, tired, drained, attacked, defeated. Guess what, you’re not. EverythingContinue reading “Pointless”

Black girl, Colorful heart

Blessed with so many friendships, black, brown, white. I am attracted to personalities. Unfortunately, we do not discuss racial injustices because it is not the most comfortable for many whites and sometimes myself, but the truth is being black in America has not been the most comfortable due to so many stereotypes. I do notContinue reading “Black girl, Colorful heart”

Give it All You Got

People may not understand your happiness. People may question your friendliness. People may wonder about your joy. As the old folk say, “This joy that I have; the world didn’t give it and the world can’t take it away.” Perhaps you’re like me and you have fought to feel as blessed and grateful as youContinue reading “Give it All You Got”

The Elephant in the Room

It’s not how much money you earn that counts, but how much money you keep. Furthermore, how does that money give you a return? Financial literacy is an underexposed topic within the middle income market. Families earn money, but lack money management skills. In my experience, families spend more than they make because of 1.Continue reading “The Elephant in the Room”

Take off Your Mask

Pressure all around to be someone you are not. Internal tug of war with your flesh and spirit. Temptations all around. Battle between righteousness and happiness. Living underneath a disguise when inside of you screams the truth. Take off your mask. Be who you are, everyone else is already taken. Define yourself when you areContinue reading “Take off Your Mask”

Stretching Season

If you are the smartest person in the room, be sure to hang in other rooms. Yes, rooms where people are more educated on various subject matters. What’s one of the most common ways we gain knowledge? It’s from someone else. Assess your circles. What’s the subject matter? Do any of them stretch you? DoContinue reading “Stretching Season”
