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. […]

Two Ocean Metaphors & A Challenge

I’m a summer girl at heart but I’m a big fan of September because it still signals to me the start of a new year. We’re shaking off the summer laziness, kids are going back to school, business prospects are ready to get started again. And you still have 4 months left in the year […]

It’s Time for a Soul Stirring Adventure

Adventure, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

Does It Feel Like Something Is Off?

I often semi-joke that being in the parenting a newborn stage makes me stupid.

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 […]

You deserve to be selfish.

Whenever I talk to women about living more joyfully and infusing their lives with more adventure and color, I’ll eventually come across the same initial objection: Yes, but isn’t that a little…selfish? The women I work with always undoubtedly feel guilty about thinking so much about themselves. They’ll tell me their big dreams and they’ll […]

Feeling Lit Up And On Fire..

We’re officially halfway through the year and about a third through the summer. Does that fill you with excitement about what you’ve done and the things to come or with dread that you haven’t done anything you set out to do this year? Maybe you recommitted to yourself and decided to stop putting yourself dead […]
