I’ve always struggled with saying NO. My entire life, I’ve always sought to make everyone else happy. As a little girl, with a very strong-willed mother, I learned early on to do her bidding or face the cold shoulder. I learned to choose peace. From letting her choose my outfit to my hairstyle to beingContinue reading “No! No! I Said No!”

Warning ⚠️: THIS IS A RANT!
Lately, I’ve been stuck in limbo, trying to figure out my next step, specifically spiritually. I’ve been alternating between bitterness and hurt.

I’ve stood up for myself while doubting myself at the same time. It’s safe to say that the words coming out of my mouthContinue reading “ESTEEM BLOW 🤛”

What a week! If there was a week that was meant to finish me it should have been this one, by all means. From the very beginning of the week on Sunday, it’s been a roller coaster of bad occurrences and some sort of bad cloud hanging over my head. The only reason I haven’tContinue reading “Hang in there!”
