You’re Making This Harder Than It Has To Be

I was reading one of those astrology memes the other day and mine was: “Aries….Do it your way, even if your way is stupid. Just make everything worse” Damn, astrology meme, why you have to be so accurate? I’m totally guilty of making things harder than they need to be. In fact, sometimes it feels […]

Good Things Happen When You Change Your Seat.

Have you ever REALLY wanted to do something— like go to a concert, or take a trip, or maybe something smaller like an in town event. You call up all your friends and they’re really just not that into it. They all have some reason why they can’t attend with you. In those moments, what […]

Could Things Be Worse? Probably.

I was chatting with a friend the other day who was venting to me about her relationship. Suddenly, she caught herself. “I’m sorry, girl. I shouldn’t be complaining. I mean, at least he isn’t cheating on me.” See…what we’re not going to do is get caught up in what I like to call the “At […]

Make The Decision To Get Free

Earlier this week I was scrolling through Facebook and came across a video of Lena Waithe’s acceptance speech at Black Girls Rock. I, of course, stopped to watch it and over the next 2 minutes got my entire life. She told a story of how she finally felt free enough to cut off her locs. […]

Before I had children, my idea of adventure was always something grand, similar to my Senior Trip after high school graduation, when I went on a road trip through Yosemite, Mammoth and Lake Tahoe with some friends. I’m still astonished my parents let me go […]

Maybe letting go of the guilt you have when you consider putting yourself FIRST? Recently, I was interviewed […]

Does It Feel Like Something Is Off?

I often semi-joke that being in the parenting a newborn stage makes me stupid. If you’re a Mom, then you definitely understand how very real the struggle is with “Mom Brain.” For example, about a month after I’d given birth to Baby J,  I was pretty insistent to my husband that the yard tool is called […]

I’m just tired.

I was talking to a friend and she mentioned that the most acceptable emotions for women to display and feel are tiredness. And then some sadness. Das it. Tiredness and a little bit of sadness. That blew my mind, but when I started thinking about it, it’s absolutely true. Think about how many times someone asked […]
