The Queen Bee

Do you remember your mentor? Did you have one? How did that relationship shape you? Women supporting women has always been at the center of my upbringing and career. Watching my mother build several businesses and observing the obstacles along the way, I was privy to an excellent example of the importance of mentorship and the correlation between that and spiritual growth. Perhaps more strikingly, was the consideration I saw my mother give women who…

Every person has a story and the only one you need to worry about, is the one you know in your heart to be true. Everything else is but a manifestation of the rainbow to be seen after the…

Through the years my readers have experienced my positive outlook on less than jovial situations. An optimistic outlook on love, relationships, politics, and current events. This is not going to encompass that. It’s an homage to the “Haters” the judgement mongers” and the “friendship posers.” The last year has been quite possibly the most difficult time of my life. I was forced to deal with impossible situations and unalterable circumstances. A turn of events that nothing…

Set the Tone and Begin Your Day with JOY

When I reflect on the toll the last seven months have had on my life, I found myself living in the negative as opposed to the positive. Something that personally does not fall within the scope of how I ordinarily perceive things. The end of 2017 brought a series of events that completely change my world and turned it upside down. Unfortunately, my mother has taken ill and is slowly deteriorating. I suddenly found myself…

The Decision to Break the Cycle of Hate

The world continues to evolve around us and within that evolution a new cycle of hatred has emerged. I would assume in a sense it was always there, but the climate has changed and now we are forced to be confronted with the many cycles of hate our predecessors experienced. I’ve been there; followed around the store with all eyes on me. Called a S*** and a N***** Lover. My parents told me countless stories…

By paying attention and letting our true rock emerge,We allow blessings and opportunities to come. The emergence of the new self. You embody lightness and will be free. Do not hide your true being,…

For Those Of You That Really Know Me

For those of you that really know me, you can understand that I have walked the line between Democrat and Republican my entire life. We need to look beyond party lines this year and remember who we are as a whole. The mold has been set and we must respond with fearlessness, intelligence and tenacity. The choice is clear and we need to make it. Do not continue to allow others to separate our true…

When I Love You is a Lie

Tell a lie once and all your truths become questionable. We cannot believe so easily. Even salt looks like sugar. I had become a mask so long i'd forgotten who I was beneath. This was not my first time. However, on this occasion when I removed it, a little of my skin came off. Vulnerability began to feed my heart and intoxicate my mind. Yes, I have been weak. But more importantly, I have been…
