Let's face it there are some people who are not meant to be a part of your life anymore. Cliche as it may be, it's the truth. There are some people who were only meant to stick around for a while. And that "while" does not equate to making it last forever! I still don't really understand... Continue Reading →
License to Lead? Use It!
I have a question for you. Do you believe what the word of God says about you? The Lord directed me to Hebrews 10:35-36 the other day: So don’t throw away your confidence it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive... Continue Reading →
It was Necessary
The abuse I endured years ago left me with more than a broken nose and bruised ego. I had a broken spirit. That fragility later morphed into a core of resentment and callousness I only recently disowned. I recall sharing this pain with a stranger for the first time. When I worked in customer service, a...

Just Be Free
Vulnerability has never been my strong suit. Perhaps that's why it's been a minute since I've posted anything. Well, I guess I'm done with my little sabbatical. It seems that God has been forcing me to deal with "me." It's been uncomfortable. I came across this draft this morning. Rereading it helped realize something about... Continue Reading →
A Reintroduction of Sorts
Welcome Lovelies and Gents! So I'm a brainy introvert who's a follower of Christ. I loathe religion and I'm proud of it! For some that might seem contradictory, however, by MBTI personality categorization standards, I'm considered one of the rarest, as some say, a walking contradiction anyway so it fits. Yep, I'm female, African American,... Continue Reading →
Leave It in Last Year!
Dear 2017, Our relationship is over. Our parting is bittersweet but necessary. You have taught me so much about myself! I've been emotional, but I toyed with the notion of becoming numb again because "feeling" for my own sake hadn't been my usual if that makes sense. Whether it does or not, know that in...

Who This Lady Needs
Almost four months ago I posted this message: Who This Lady Wants! I mentioned I started the post about two months prior then, but hey I was wrong. The other day I came across almost the same words in an old journal...so I suppose my heart has been pondering not just my desires, but my... Continue Reading →
Embrace What’s Right with YOU!
I've always been one to find errors immediately. On signs...in books...on television...in speech...I've had a knack for correcting things since I was seven...always considering other, better, and more efficient ways of doing most things I've observed. In fact, I have to purposely make myself not read my posts at times because I can't help making... Continue Reading →
This I Know
Over the years, God has allowed me to be humbled by stupid decisions. Some of which I've observed in others, but most of them have been from my own shenanigans. That said, I find myself second guessing too much lately. That's not a good thing folks. I know God's blessed me with discernment, but memories... Continue Reading →
This Open Book
I've said for a while I'm an open book. This morning I've contemplated that premise and confirmed in my heart that there are still pages within soldered with tears. Those leaves are reserved for the few willing and able to be patient enough to carefully separate the two or three or thousand that to the... Continue Reading →
Who this Lady Wants!
Funny it's probably been two months since I wrote most of this, but today God's given me permission to post it. I was tickled last week when my pastor mentioned an upcoming relationship series entitled "what a woman wants/what a man needs." I thought, SPOILER ALERT! It won't be the first time my posts and...
