I LOST MY LEG… KICKING CANCERS BUTT!...

Oct 13, 2016 by

  My daughter Madison was full of personality! A bright, silly little drama queen that would dance as soon as she heard a beat drop!  She was as healthy & happy as she could be.  All that changed when she her leg started hurting. She complained about a pain in her left leg. She had been playing outside & fell down a hill. I thought she was just sore from the fall or maybe pulled a muscle. The pain got worse so we went 2 get x-rays.  X-rays led 2 a MRI and that led 2 a biopsy. On  February 24th 2015 Madison was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) She survived 29 weeks of chemotherapy & countless trips back & forth 2 Children’s Healthcare Of Atlanta hospital & the Aflac unit. At 11 yrs old...

One Day My Soul Just Opened Up…....

Sep 20, 2016 by

One day, right? I was up, milling about,doing my usual thing.  What’s my usual thing you ask? Well, working the 9 to 5, writing 2, 3 books at a time, chasing a dream, raising a kid, maintaining a life, writing out vision boards, living my ass off, starting a business, maintaining my sanity, fighting off demons, crushing old thoughts, swinging at past pains hating on my new journey and what not. Because you know the old shit never wants to leave so you can make room for the new shit right? Every day it’s a constant struggle to not be who you once were, to find a better way, to be a better person to open your life up to experience new things and to not hold on to grudges so that your hands...

CAN YOU AFFORD ME?

Sep 16, 2016 by

Can I get a whoop whoop! Yes honey lets jump right into this here debate about men, money, women, lifestyles and what not!  But see the issue already is in what you are thinking right now when the question is asked, “Can You Afford Me?”  If you are a male reading this, instantly you got defensive, aggravated and probably called me a bitch. But read on brother, let me learn you something right quick. You probably thought that this was about a woman, wanting to know if a man can afford to buy her material things.  You probably thought this was a question asked by an immature female wanting to know can you finance her bundles or ass injections.  If that is what you were thinking, you have some maturing to do as well....

Those Who Pray With You… Stay With You...

Jul 27, 2016 by

Sometimes life is so damn hard.  There are decisions to be made constantly, pain to be cured always, old wounds opening up from time to time, things that you need to learn to let go, the job is wilin’ you out, the kids are out of order, the man ain’t acting right, friends are buggin, family is trifling, things just won’t add up to make sense.  But you fight the good fight. You persevere through life’s ills.  You find your footing.  You pray, you soldier on, you come out of the dark. You find your joy! You find your light!!! Because you fought so hard to find that light you will protect it with the strength of 1,000 soldiers.  That is when people begin to fall out of your life. Not because they aren’t worthy...

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...

“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...
