I have a confession to make – the relationship that I have with money needs some work. Although I love money and the many comforts that it affords me in life, I realized that my money management skills over the last two years were nothing to brag about. Yes I have a great job, loving relationship, and bomb ass friends. In reality, most would look at my life and not see anything wrong, but there’s a dark cloud that’s been following me for a few years now: my debt. My debt, I finally realized, is a direct result of my tumultuous relationship with money. But instead of villainizing the credit card companies, I’ve decided to own my shit. After my admission, it suddenly clicked – if I had a better relationship with money, I wouldn’t be in this situation with my debt! Duh! Once I faced that hard truth; I decided enough was enough – and I dedicated myself to giving my relationship with money a much-needed makeover.
Social media is a two-headed beast. Social media has forever changed our lives and how we interact with one another. Social media, essentially, is what you make it. In my case, social media became one of the main triggers of my anxiety. Although I love the potential it has with moving us forward as a society; I hate the bullshit that comes along with it. And let’s be honest – THERE’S A LOT OF BULLSHIT!
The whole doing everything for likes, fraudulent lifestyles, and unfair and unrealistic pressure it puts on us all is just not my cup of tea. So on October 28th, 2018 – I deactivated all of my accounts (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.Continue Reading
As the hustle and frenzy of the holiday season wears off, many of us take some time to think about the things we weren’t able to accomplish in the year that has so quickly passed us by. Maybe you want to become a vegan, save more money, or write a book. You’re determined to make the upcoming year matter, and you think of everything you want to do. Then you write them down and wait until January 1st to go after your goals.Continue Reading
Ever liked someone and they suddenly vanished out of your life without warning? You two talk pretty much every day, have gone on plenty of dates, and become close. This person really has the potential to be your next boo thing; and then all of a sudden POOF! They’re gone, suddenly evaporate into thin air like a ghost, with no rhyme or reason. I call this ghosting or being ghosted, and it can happen to any of us – no one is safe. As with many of the things that can go wrong when it comes to dating, being ghosted is another risk to add to the list. And although the idea of it happening to you may seem mortifying, the person that’s ghosted you may have done you a favor. Continue Reading
Last week legendary rapper, Nas, shocked us all when he took to his Instagram account and posted a 7-part tell all about his nasty custody battled with ex-wife and famed singer Kelis. Let’s just say – it was pretty shocking, especially since just a few months earlier, Kelis alleged that Nas was abusive AF during their five-year marriage. Since their divorce in 2010, many of us have watched from the sidelines as the two have been in and out of court duking it out for custody of their child. However, Kelis’ latest accusations had us all clutching our pearls! Fast forward five months, Nas has come forward with this side of the story. I guess we’ll never truly know the dynamics of their relationship and what actually went down, but,I have to say that a breakup can really bring out the worst in people. It’s important to remember when separating from a partner, it’s important to be better, not bitter in the end.
