What Happens When your Child Plays Favorites?

So, a couple weekends ago, my daughter was very sad about something. She is so much like me that it is almost irritating, because I constantly asked her what was wrong and she would say “nothing”, even though her face clearly was singing a different tune. I didn’t want to badger her; but I needed…

An Amazing Start to January

This post will be short, but I had to pat myself on the back for the month of January because this month was the first month in my 5 years of blogging that I surpassed 1,000 views on my blog!! This year I’m getting a LOT more serious; pushing out more content, engaging more with…

Yea, I’m That Kind of Introvert.

About two years ago, my best friend showed me a video, that showed you the difference between being an introvert and an extrovert.

Tyler Perry’s “Work Ethic”

I typically do not write about very many socially current events, just because of the nature of social media and sometimes people cannot have a healthy discussion about something without slander, name-calling and mud-slinging and I truly do not have the time of patience for all that, lol.

Finding my Confidence

Fun fact: Despite my consistency in the gym, I still sometimes battle with the level of confidence I have with myself. It’s crazy, I know; but it is possible to work very hard at something and still not always feel like you look as good as others may see you. I’ve received many compliments on…
