Broken for Use

The physical and mental abuse I endured just over a decade ago left me with more than a broken nose and bruised ego.  I had a broken spirit. That same broken spirit morphed into a mindset of resentment and callousness I only recently disowned. I recall sharing this pain with a stranger a while ago.  When... 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...

Forgiving and Forgetting is Not an Option Anymore!

A wound superficially covered will cause infection, but bleeding and allowing the wound exposure is often the best way to heal it. At least it is for me... True Forgiveness Requires Grief! It Requires Stages. It Requires that one face the pain of what happened and why it happened. It Requires Identifying who is responsible.... Continue Reading →

Un-Arrest Your Development

I suppose I have resisted this place for some time now....but I cannot continue to run away from the inner most parts of myself a moment longer. So I thought to myself yesterday that yes, perhaps I should have my head examined after all....everyone seems to think they know me...I consider the shear ignorance of... Continue Reading →
