It was hard to do. I had to use a word that makes me feel uncomfortable. I had to tell someone No! And I had to tell them no more than once because they didn’t believe me the first time I said it. Saying no was so empowering. I felt like a three year old … More I Had To Say No
When I was younger I was the limbo champ. When I was younger I could drop it likes it hot. When they were asking for volunteers to sit on the floor or kneel for the staff picture day this week. I thought to myself not today Satan. If I go low, I’m not getting up. … More How Low Can You Go?
Do you ever have moments when you forget who you are? You lost your identity? Your sanity? Your purpose? You forget for a moment that you have a journey that’s different from everyone else, but you’ve been equipped to travel that road. You will do it alone if you have to do so. Sometimes we … More Welcome Back
My affirmation post-it collection was on the mirror in my bathroom. It was my morning meeting time with myself, it helped prepare me for the day ahead. Last year I threw away all of the post-it notes and started over. This time I moved them to the office space downstairs where I work. It’s definitely … More Post-It
I have to admit I’m glad that I was damaged in the past. In some ways maybe parts of me are still damaged. When you’ve been damaged and hit rock bottom you have a humbling experience that will change your mindset and path in life.

I stopped worrying about what other people were doing and focused on keeping my own … More Time To Pull The Weeds
I carried my mistakes around like baggage, letting others remind me of them daily. I’ve learned from my mistakes that have happened to me once. I call myself a fool for allowing it to happen twice. Mistakes mean we are trying, and allow us an opportunity to recover. Mistakes allow us a chance to make … More My Mistakes
My friend Michelle from high school tagged me in this picture on Facebook. Just like always God’s timing was perfect. Yes, I love my vision board, my post it affirmation wall and all my self talk. In the end I don’t have total control over my story. God has the final say. God, why put … More The Day I Let Go
I’ll never say I told you so. I will however tell you that “I tried to throw you a life vest and you didn’t grab it.” One of my gifts is my ability to talk people off the edge, to pray with them, listen to them vent, try to counsel them if I feel like … More I Tried To Throw You A Life Vest
I don’t know about you but I’m good at lip service. Trouble don’t last always. God doesn’t give you more than you can handle. This too shall pass. I say these statements at times and I don’t believe them. My question is how long do I have to battle this situation? How much longer do … More How Long?
