Stay True

Hey Friends! Every once in a while, I have to pull a blog out of the archives. I write all my blogs with the intention to help others, but I’ve learned that they also serve as a public diary entry for me. Sometimes I look back on them when I’m having a rough day and need to hype…

Like A Fine Wine🍷

What if I told you that everything you’ve experienced in your life was 100% necessary for you – would you believe it? My birthday is tomorrow (I’m accepting all gifts, greetings, lunches, dinners, cakes, clothes and money without shame – let me know if you need to know my sizes!). Birthdays always breed a time…

I See You

I once had a co-worker, turned older brother, who would stalk my Instagram page. Although we were close in age, he was at a totally different stage in life. Married with two children, he always referenced what I did on the weekend as a foot loose and fancy free twenty something. Now, don’t get me…

Read Your Own Receipts

  I’m all for speaking life and encouraging others, and that includes dishing out some good ol’ fashion TOUGH love. However, it starts at home first. It’s very easy to point out what other people aren’t doing. But, here’s the reality – you can’t control anyone but yourself. Now, this is not a new phenomenon, but I have to remind myself of…

What Dream Have You Talked Yourself Out Of?

“You’re not creative” I think I was in middle school when I first told myself that. Although I taught myself how to read music at the age of 8 years old, wrote poetry in my early days, and was completely in awe whenever I attended any live concert; I told myself that I wasn’t creative. I’m not…

Weather The Storm

Almost 30 years ago, the successful (and somewhat controversial) R&B group, New Edition released a powerhouse hit from their fifth studio album. The year was 1988 and the song was entitled, “Can You Stand the Rain.” Produced by legendary Grammy Award winning production team Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (Prince, Janet Jackson, Spice Girls, Yolanda…

A Little Reminder 💡

“Our Deepest Fear” by Marianne Williamson “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?…

Dear You

I posted a pep talk video back in April discussing how some of the very goals I wrote in my journal years ago have manifested in my life. Acts such as blogging, vlogging, and going to school were once just ideas that have now become some of my every day activities. But one thing I didn’t tell…

Thin Air

I have a hate-hate relationship with the stair master…yes, I said it. I hate it and (judging how I feel when I climb off that treacherous machine) it surely hates me. If I don’t have time to take a class at the gym, I usually do a 30-45 minute mashup between the treadmill, the elliptical,…

Target, let’s talk about the message your vendors just sent to Generation Z

Maybe it’s because I just spent the last two years of my life studying workplace behavior and motivational theories while completing my master’s degree in organizational leadership. Perhaps it’s because my nearly 40-page final thesis included dissecting the five generations in the workplace and how different cultural events impacted their worldviews sand workplace habits. It…
