Self-Care Sunday: Date Night – with Yourself!

So, as we know, Coronavirus, COVID-19, #DaRona, etc. has basically shifted everyone’s life and put a temporary hault on everyone’s plans to be out and about, and we’re all home bound and forced to find something to do with ourselves to stay uplifted and productive. For most of us, working from home, being an improv…

I Don’t Know How to Feel

I sat down at my computer yesterday, trying to formulate some words about how I feel. There’s so much criticism in a person’s silence about the current issues were facing; the murder of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others that have suffered the horrific an unjustified and untimely death. But, I want…

Smile More, Stress Less

Why do we stress more than we smile? Smiling is such a beautiful thing; it brightens a day, brings on a sort of refreshing and therapeutic atmosphere and it just feels good. So, why is it so hard sometimes to smile more than we frown? Is it because of life? Is it because the stress…

#Verzuz Was the Vibe We All Needed

I know it has been almost 2 weeks since it occurred, but the fact that I’m coming back to talk about it tells you that it was that impactful. On May 9, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott completes the #Verzuz battle that we all need; and it honestly wasn’t even a battle. In case you’ve…

How to Help Your Kid Cope with Quarantine

With my last few posts, it’s clear I don’t have to stress the overwhelming nature of this pandemic and quarantine is causing; however, there is one more population that is also dealing with the pandemic, and that is our beautiful babies. My daughter is 6, and despite her being so young, she is well aware…

WTIO Bucket List

It’s happening. I’m going crazy in quarantine. Although things are starting to open up in phases, I can’t help but realize that a full opening of the world and the ability to do the things you once loved to do without worry may be far-fetched right now. Now that I’ve had all this spare time,…

Be Kind. Don’t Share that Post.

Please. For the sake of those you love and care about who get triggered by violence, do not share videos of brutal violence and death. I understand awareness is everything, but there are enough articles and information that gets disseminated that will paint the picture. And if you’re thinking “what if they’re lying?” Well, darkness…

A Moment of Peace Amidst All the Chaos

Something about a full moon always puts me in a calm and peaceful moon. Tonight, I finally got to get a good photograph of the full moon. I’m not professional photographer, but I think I did pretty good. There’s a little editing on it as well; courtesy of VSCO. I hope everyone can find a…

Let’s Just Be Happy.

There have been many instances during this pandemic that I have seen people pushing to start businesses, take up new hobbies, work out, eat better, get fresh air, etc. If you want me to be honest, #issalot. I know that for some, this much needed time inside is allowing us to thrive into new topics…

Joy

I was having a conversation about Joy on Sunday, and I made a promise to myself that I would start living for the joy in my life. I told myself that there was no excuse for me not to be happy, and that I could shape my happiness and joy any way I see fit….
