Stop Keeping Score of People’s Actions...

Jun 23, 2016 by

Because women are emotional creatures we often get all up in arms when someone doesn’t show up to something important or when someone constantly hurts us, shades us, does us wrong.  Why? Because we are too god damned concerned with loving other people more than we are about loving ourselves. We give other people too much power over ourselves because we are natural people-pleaser’s, nurturers etc. We want to take care of people, understand people, give second, third and fourth chances, but at what cost? Sometimes ladies, I think we validate ourselves too much by how many people are around us, how many likes we get, how many events we are invited to etc.  How is this even healthy? If you live for a man’s compliments surely you will suffer and die from his...

The Power In Saying NO

Jun 21, 2016 by

Think of all the times you said “yes” to something you really didn’t want to do.  Think about all of the places you were invited to and you went, when you really didn’t want to, but your fear of being “talked about,” or the stress of having to deal with some kind of backlash from friends made you go. Think of all the times someone needed you for something and you really didn’t have it to give, be it time, money or simply an ear over the phone.  But you obliged, even as you shook your head no.  Begrudgingly you did that thing that you did not want to do.  Think about how you prepared yourself to say “No” to any and everyone who asked you for any damn thing but when the question...

WHAT BECOMES OF THE BROKEN HEARTED: BY AYANA ELLIS...

Jun 10, 2016 by

Heartbreak.  It happens to the nicest of people.  It happens unexpectedly.  It happens when we are not careful. It happens when we ARE careful.  It happens no matter what, it is inevitable.  Just like riding a bike, you never forget how to ride the waves of heartbreak.  That burning feeling in your stomach, those headaches that won’t go away.   The way your eyes burn as they try to hold back tears when you think of them.  Your whole world turns misty blue at the mere mention of their name. You want nothing more than for the pain to go away so bad that you begin asking God for his help to rid yourself of the love you have for this person and some air to breathe because you’re suffocated in sadness and turmoil. You don’t...

“Make That Move” By Ayana Ellis...

Jun 9, 2016 by

Day in and day out you watch the ships roll in and you watch them roll away again.  You’re frustrated, you’re aggravated because you know there is something that you should be doing but you can’t seem to figure out what.  Even more frustrating is knowing what you should be doing but for the life of you, you just can’t figure out where to start. Times a wasting kid! But you know what we do? We allow that paralyzing fear of failure to keep us stagnant.  We are so afraid of becoming who we know lives inside of us because we are afraid of leaving behind what we have become comfortable with.  But every night we toss and turn after laying in bed for hours day dreaming about the life we want to live, yet we...
