Your Purpose Doesn’t Have To Be Complicated

If you spend any time in personal development circles, you hear a lot about purpose. Find your purpose! Live your purpose! Work your purpose! And while finding your purpose is not bad advice, sometimes this approach can make us feel that we need to have a purpose that is so lofty and grand and that […]

It’s that time of year where we are bombarded with New Year, New You messaging. But what if you were fine just the way you are?  Now hear me out. I believe in personal growth and learning new things that will help you grow and change as a person. And I also believe that so […]

Homecoming

Do you choose a theme for the year? My theme for the year is Homecoming. When I reflected on what I wanted 2021 to be like for me, I kept coming back to the idea that I wanted to really feel like I was sinking into myself. I want to show up as myself 100%I […]

Kamala Harris

I keep thinking about Kamala Harris’ performance during the Vice Presidential debate last week. It was such a familiar scene. A woman of color who is clearly the smartest and most qualified person in the room but has to bend over backwards to showcase her confidence and her expertise in the most delicate way possible, […]

Usually asked by a ‘well-meaning’ white person who just can’t fathom why a Black woman might […]

If you’re ambitious, high-achieving, are a wife and/or mother and look even remotely put together, people ask you this question as if you have some magic formula locked away. I won’t even get into why men aren’t asked this question. How […]

Run With Me?

I don’t know about you, but I’m determined to not let the events of 2020 so far define who 2020 ends. This pandemic, witnessing white folks become aware of racism, participating in the movement for Black lives will be recorded in history, and rightfully so. But in your personal record books, in your history and […]

Your Joy Is Rebellion

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been talking to clients, friends, and peers and the one theme that keeps coming up is that they don’t feel like they’re doing enough in this moment. We’re experiencing a flurry of emotions: anger, astonishment, relief, overwhelm, joy.We’re protesting, calling folks out on social media and in real life, […]
