Why Don’t Superwomen get an Off Day?

As we go through life and its many stages (adulthood, dating, marriage, children) it's so easy to wish that we were back to the "good old days" when we are hit with rough times or life just becomes too "adult" for us to handle.  I know I have experienced this several times (I mean, who… Continue reading Why Don’t Superwomen get an Off Day?

Positive thoughts

Everyday you wake up with an opportunity to make the day the best day you can. You are the only person who can control the outcome of your day.  Wake up, pray, stretch, open the window and look out at God's creations. Tell yourself that today will be a good day. Claim your positivity into… Continue reading Positive thoughts

Blast from the past

So, I'm starting to type all of my old poems and save them on my jump drive so that I don't lose the papers or they don't start to fade. I couldn't help but laugh at myself, because I started writing and really keeping my poems together around 9th grade, so I will say around… Continue reading Blast from the past

Why Does it Matter What I Watch on TV?

I read an article recently, like many others I have read that highlight all the negative reasons why people shouldn't watch reality TV and things like Scandal, Being Mary Jane, Empire, How to Get Away with Murder, etc.  On one end, it highlights that people of color are making waves in television, starring in major… Continue reading Why Does it Matter What I Watch on TV?

Will I do NaNoWriMo this year?

I am contemplating on NaNo this year.  I think I would like to do it, but I am not sure if I will keep up on the website like last year.  I can easily keep track of how many words I put in everyday, so not being on the website won't be detrimental to me.… Continue reading Will I do NaNoWriMo this year?

Home: an ode to my sanctuary

After a long day, I like to run away, To a place I like to call home, Where I can be all alone. My bed, My kitchen, My bathroom, My living room. All of these places, Are my getaway spaces. A no judgement zone Where I can be all alone. Day 5 🙂

Know your Lane

A lot of people tend to speak on subjects in which they know nothing about. We want to peg ourselves as experts, yet haven't done the edtensive research behind those aspects; or better yet, they just have not lived in them.  I like to believe that there is always a life twin; a person who… Continue reading Know your Lane

Day 4: Imperfect

I may not have the cutest face,  Or waltz around as if I have extraordinary poise and grace,  But through all my flaws,  You see me; and all  in all,  That's all the matters in the first place.  🙂 I'm having a lot of fun with this.  I rarely do specific types of poems (limericks,… Continue reading Day 4: Imperfect

Day 3: Skin Intolerance

A prose about Skin: My skin....is tired.  My skin feels powerless.  There are people in this world, who have depleted my skin of its beauty, shine and luster and replaced it with sorrow, shame and insecurity.  My skin has seen it's impact on this world, this cold world with a cold soul.  It brings fear… Continue reading Day 3: Skin Intolerance
