Not Bad for a Girl with No Creativity

This week alone, God has opened so many doors. Many of which, I still cannot see. However, like the old song says, "Jesus will!" I am so grateful for those that pour into me and speak life over me. I am thankful for the new relationships established within the last month that, for lack of …

Passion for Planning

New planner. 'Who dis?' There's something special about a new planner and goal-setting! For me, the toughest part is signing my name. This morning, I put pen to paper at least ten times before I committed to how I wrote my name. It was a stressful few minutes! Ha! However, it's done and I can officially …

Unlike Butter…

There are few things in life that work better when spread thin. Butter and jam, yes... however, I am not one of those things. In fact, as time moves along, I gain a greater understanding that I become less effective when saying yes to everything. Once during a job interview, I took pride in expressing …

That Time I Almost Made Myself Cry

Roughly six months ago, I wrote myself a letter. It was part of a reflection activity. The instructions were to write as if I were receiving recognition from myself for work completed during the fall semester. (Note: I live in semesters because I work in Higher Education.) Today, I opened that letter and I teared …

One Little Word® | Speak

This time last year, I chose to participate in the One Little Word Challenge because of a post on Instagram. Quickly, I scrambled to find the right word for 2015. For some reason, I chose 'valiant'.

Peaceful Part of You

"How are YOU doing?" I don't care for that question. I care for the individual asking, because hopefully, they genuinely care about my response. However, I despise that question. It's the equivalent to, "Where do you see yourself in five years?" Both answers most likely point to a response like, "hell, I don't know" followed …

Comfort is Crotch-less Yoga Pants

Welcome. I see that the title caught your eye. I must say that I didn't come up with it. Rather, I am in a league of unacquainted women who simply detest pants. This title is our motto. If you need me to paint a better picture, envision a maxi skirt flowing so long that one …
