You can’t make something right if you don’t first acknowledge that there is a problem! Be honest with yourself, the people you love, and the world about your experiences, your truths. Don’t ever let false information be presented or believed as true. Whether it’s calling people out, protesting, correcting, sharing; let the truth, your truth, be known!
Earlier this week, I was on Facebook unfriending someone who I really don’t have to be friends with, but could just follow. As I was switching this up, I saw a new option for ignoring or getting rid of people on your friends list. LOL. It’s under “Unfriend” and above “Unfollow”. Guess what it’s called? “Take a Break”.

Good afternoon and Happy Monday! In this what are other people doing, thinking and saying world, it’s easy to lose ourselves. It’s easy to get caught up in popular opinion, thoughts about how to do things, who to be, and how to be. I recently found myself researching the way other people posted something to see if the way I wanted to post was “good enough”. With creativity-art, writing, music, etc., it can be like second nature to “check-in” with what’s been successful or liked as opposed to creating or doing what’s naturally from within. Going forward, I’m going to be more mindful of the ways I discount my art and natural abilities, who I am and what I have to offer the world by trying to make it “fit” with what’s been deemed “good”. I don’t need permission to write how or what I write, create how or what I create, and neither do you. What matters is that it comes from a place of authenticity, a place that is really, totally you. Let your beautiful, amazing inner self guide you to your ultimate self!

As the sun’s corona peeked through the darkness, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
An electric energy filled my body and soul, as the thrill of joy rushed from the depths of my spirit and were released through my vocal chords, producing a shriek from a quiet, solid place. Continue reading
Along this journey called life, there have been plenty of times when I needed something but didn’t have what I needed to get it; or wanted something that I didn’t have the finances to purchase.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been making it a point to be grateful for the income I have versus stressing over the income I lost when I left my full-time job.
I’m thankful for the fact that over the last couple of years, my income has increased, become more steady, and I’m almost bringing in as much as I was when I was working a 9-5 (or sometimes 50 plus hours a week), with less hours worked, more joy, peace and control over my life. Continue reading
