10 WAYS TO REINCARNATE YOURSELF FROM THE DEAD...

Nov 30, 2015 by

When you get married you take vows that state “til death do us part.” I’ve always questioned myself if I could stay with one person until I die.  Then it dawned on me. Does death mean when we die or when the relationship dies? Til the death of what? That vow (to me) seems a bit vast wouldn’t you agree? When you are with someone, though your feelings have died, you have reached the end of the road, love isn’t enough to keep you in this situation and she/he no longer fills you up or grows you mentally, emotionally, spiritually and more than likely as a result of this, sexually you’d much rather watch paint dry, doesn’t that signify death? Like… it’s dead. The relationship is muerto. So why do we stay? Is it for the kids, the...

Thanksgiving Thanks

Nov 25, 2015 by

As we quickly approach the holidays I take a step back and look at myself and my life and I say self? Life? What’s good yo? Well everything is good! Though there are lots of bad days because I am not an idle woman and I have many things I am trying to accomplish, so when I don’t get that call, or things didn’t go right, or something must be done again, or I need to wait for someone else to make a move so that I can make a move it is very frustrating, however, even in the crux of being a career woman, a 9-5 woman, a mother, sibling, lover, friend and human being I am thankful! I am thankful for my sight, my hearing, my taste buds, my limbs. I am...

Don’t Fight The Process

Nov 18, 2015 by

  There is a quote from one of my favorite wordsmiths Rumi where she says: “Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”   What does this mean to you?  Have you ever lost something that you held so dear to your heart and felt as if you didn’t know how you were going to make it through the day? Have you ever been so in love and when the relationship...

INTERVIEW: Karen Gravano of Mob Wives...

Nov 17, 2015 by

She’s the star of Mob Wives, Author of New York Times Bestseller “MobDaughter,” and daughter of Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, underboss of the Gambino Crime Family a.k.a the man who helped bring down John Gotti.  Though her demeanor is laid back and she’s always smiling, giving you that home girl from around the way vibe, you can tell that Karen Gravano will pop off on you for disrespecting her and she doesn’t need the cameras nearby to capture it.  Her story, her struggle and ultimate triumph is one for the books.  I had the honor of sitting down with the ultimate Mob Daughter and star of VH1’s Mob Wives, as she shared with me intimate details of her past, present, future, her love and respect for her father and her views on him “cooperating.”...
