Learning your limitations

All my life I had to be very independent and yet now life makes me very dependent on others. In the last few years, that need has grown exponentially. I’ve started having neurological issues and was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy of both upper and lower limbs. Before that I had had two ankle surgeries to correct issues that has plagued me since I was … Read More Learning your limitations

Then and Now

I’m sure you are wondering why I use such vague titles. Well, the shorter the title the shorter the URL. That’s really why! Plus it intrigues people and then they tend to want to see what I’m up to! In relation to my social media life Then… I was very quite about politics and religion on all social media platforms. Kept to sharing basic … Read More Then and Now

Acceptance

When you are finally allowed to be yourself an get complete acceptance its the most amazing feeling ever. Growing up I was always the ‘black sheep’ along with one of my cousins. Her and I were the two outsiders in our family. We didn’t look like anyone in our families and we got worst of the treatments from many of the elders in the … Read More Acceptance

Pain vs. Love

A lesson I learned in my life is that through all the pain we must discover why life is still precious. At each stage of my life, I did this. It’s the only thing that kept me going to be quite honest. When I tell people the story of my life they ask, how did you stay sane? I only reply, to be honest … Read More Pain vs. Love

Be a beautiful soul…

In our everyday lives we do things that we may not realize. Hurtful things to others without even thinking. Have you ever said there was a job you would not do? Or you won’t sit by someone in a business because they look sketchy or untrusting? Every made fun of someone cause of the way they looked or something was different about them?

Authentic to YOU

My mind never rests… a troublesome thing but I think it keeps me sane. When I woke this morning, the thoughts … Read More Authentic to YOU

No Resolutions Over Here

Every New’s Year Eve we see so many of our friends and family set New Years Resolutions¬†only to see two weeks or a month in they have failed at them, this is ONE of the many reasons I don’t set them. First, if I’m going to set a goal for myself why wait till the end of one year and the beginning of another … Read More No Resolutions Over Here

Expect the Unexpected

Over the last twenty years, I’ve battled with “female” issues and finally on the 29th of October I was able to start the final process of resolving those issues. While a hysterectomy for me was considered elective… I truly feel it was my only opinion. I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life on medication if a procedure could take care of … Read More Expect the Unexpected

Endorsement Anger?

So Nike does an ad with Kaepernick and the country seems to have gone insane. People are burning their Nike products (cause what is more sensible than burning things you spent damn good money on, right) … Well, now this Louisiana mayor has decided to ban Nike products from the city recreation facilities. He put out a memo stating, “Under no circumstances will any … Read More Endorsement Anger?

Here’s what’s been happening… I finished one book – edits, cover, formatting… I’m just waiting for the proof copy to arrive before I can go any further. I have also finished the first draft … Read More Busy Bee Over Here

Respect and Responsibility

I’ve rewritten this post a few times now… hard to decide where to start, so I’m going to try this one more time. Every one is different. We each look different, think different, like different things. This is okay. What I find disturbing is that every day I find people disrespecting one another based on our differences, whether that is skin color, religion, political … Read More Respect and Responsibility

Home Sweet… Georgia

I’ve been blessed to be able to go back to Georgia this last week for vacation and it was perfect, even with the numerous storms – which were random and fierce all at once. I flew into Savannah where my hubs picked me up and we had a great dinner at Ruby Tuesdays. Made some calls to let a few people know I was … Read More Home Sweet… Georgia
