The Lord Will Align

Lately I’ve felt like I’ve been on an emotional rollercoaster – sometimes up, sometimes down and sometimes, somewhere in between. But both times I got into my car this week God showed me that He’s completely in control and can bring alignment in any situation. During my first trip, I got into the car at the exact time someone I’d once met was on … Read More The Lord Will Align

Found Me

I’ve been hiding and I’m finally ready to show my face. If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time it may seem like I’m open and vulnerable like this all of the time. But the truth is, I’m not. I’m super private and at times, I’m even reluctant to show my face. Why? I don’t know. I think I’ve always felt … Read More Found Me

A Season for Planting

Everything in me is telling me this is a season for planting. I am convinced that what’s planted during this season will be harvested during the next. The harvest may be monetary but it also might not be. The fruit could be the literal fruit of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22-23 NLT 22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: … Read More A Season for Planting

Reality

A picture is worth a thousand words but during this social media age, oftentimes pictures tell stories that aren’t true. The picture above is me in July of 2012, faking it. About 8 years ago I went on vacation with a friend. A week earlier I’d gone through a pretty tough break up. Because I didn’t see this coming and we’d spent a lot … Read More Reality

Delay is Not Denial

As I watch virtual graduations, weddings, and birthdays I’m reminded of how precious life’s moments are. I’m also saddened by the fact that so many aren’t able to celebrate with loved ones. At the same time, I’m reminded that delay is not denial. I’ve heard the above saying for years but it rings true now more than ever. So many lives have been put … Read More Delay is Not Denial

Strong Women

A lack of strength is not a prerequisite for love. I started writing this post in the middle of the night. On Fb the day before I saw a picture of my former boss with her husband. This woman is strong! She’s the kind of woman you respect and follow. I literally left one job and went to another because of her leadership. I … Read More Strong Women

Waves

Thank God for my friends! Almost everyday I get a text from someone checking on me and almost everyday I say something like – I’m doing pretty well today. Whenever someone asks, I tell them how I’m doing that day or even in that moment – I don’t generalize or fake it till I make it. I’m very honest. I want the folks who … Read More Waves

Be Kind To Yourself

Lately I’ve found myself saying some really mean things. Not to other people but to myself. I have two sick parents and when I say sick I mean diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, vision and hearing problems, liver and kidney problems, cancer, epilepsy and the list goes on. And sometimes I’m not my highest self.  The truth is…I’m grieving yesteryear while trying to accept today and … Read More Be Kind To Yourself

Who Is Going To Take Care Of Me?

So this is a pretty vulnerable post but here goes. During this pandemic I’ve been trying to keep anxiety at bay, stay safe, and navigate this new (long) but temporary normal. I keep hearing stories about how people have fought Covid19 and won! Some have fought it with loved-ones helping them along the way but then there are others who live alone and have … Read More Who Is Going To Take Care Of Me?

Anxious For Nothing

I published this post privately on December 1, 2018. It was a vulnerability I wasn’t ready to share but in light of recent events and new revelations I’m ready to share. I hope this helps someone. Here is the post with some edits for clarity and edits based on what I now know to be true. —- Determining what your “thing” is can take … Read More Anxious For Nothing
