Blackness

I'm on slow boil, fam. I don't even know where to begin so I'll start at the end. A conversation in a meeting yesterday was the icing on my cake. I'm done. Despite all the damn training we have to complete annually and all the people getting blasted on social media for saying some ill... Continue Reading →

My Lova

I had some time to sit with the anger and resolved to change some things, including making my boundaries clear with some people. With that done, I'm going to change this up some. I wrote this really long serious post, but that ain't us. You know what this love feels like? When you've been somewhere... Continue Reading →

Not My Monkeys

Aye. This week has been eye-opening. Rick James said cocaine is a powerful drug. Well let me tell you anger is a powerful catalyst of wisdom. Once you get past the urge to hurt people who hurt you. This week marked the 19th anniversary of my mother's death. While that's relevant to this post, it's... Continue Reading →

Now of No

Ever notice how the best answers come to you when you're not thinking about the question? No? Let me tell you about the Now of No. I was walking to work on this brisk, dark, damp morning, listening to Calm's Power of Rest Masterclass and the answer came to me. I've been saying yes to...

Okay Not Being Okay

Life has a way, fam. Before you read on, this is going to be random because I have a lot of things going on in my head and heart and writing is therapeutic and my best way to move through. I've been trying to figure out what's next for me since The Girl graduated last... Continue Reading →

At that time there were several major issues going on all at once: a loved one went to rehab, another found out they'd been infected with a gift that kept on giving, and The... Continue Reading →

Solace in Self

My peeps. I'm writing to you from the first few steps out of one of my life valleys. I was casually walking along the mountaintop and like an epic fall in the cartoons, I looked up and found myself in a dark place, said mountaintop a pinprick of light wayyyy up there. This sudden fall... Continue Reading →

Faux Fight or Flight

This last week has been an experience and, of course, one filled with insight. I have panic attacks. At first, I blew these off as paranoia, but when I realized that my heart was racing and I was breathing raggedly, I stopped and sat with that. I was really afraid that I was going to...

The Stories We Tell Ourselves

Hey, fam. It's been super busy in my head lately. I'm at a crossroads of deciding where I want to go professionally, personally and passionately and came to a couple conclusions that are outside of how I would characterize myself. After talking to The Hero and listening to his perspective on my thoughts going forward... Continue Reading →
