When it comes to your life, have you ever felt like things never seem to work out in your favor? What’s something that you’ve always wanted? Something that speaks to your soul and well-being; but you felt like it was impossible to get? Would you believe me if I said you could have it? Ask, believe, achieve… That, my friends, is the power of manifestation. Continue Reading
Life is a beautiful thing. One thing is for sure, nothing is perfect and nothing is guaranteed. So many things can happen, so many things can change. With that being said, why do we make things difficult by having so many expectations? Are you still waiting for that guy that keeps playing games to change? Do you wonder why that one friend is never truly excited for you? Does frustration take over you the minute you think about how hard your new job or school has been? Are you hard on a family member because they are not living up to your expectations? If any of this is the case, you are in essence, setting yourself up for disappointment. The truth is; having too many expectations is not that great.
Hey guys! I hope you’re having a great week! This month has been amazing so far. I’ve sold plenty of books, continued to make some great connections, and just celebrated my 30th birthday (October 18th). As some of you may know, the thought of turning thirty was something I’ve dreaded for a long time. It wasn’t until recently that I finally embraced the idea of entering a new decade in my life.

After catching hell, he then proceeds to spell it out saying that he doesn’t like dark-skinned women (black bitches according to him) and prefers to date women that are light-skinned (aka “yellow hoes” – his words, not mine!).
I think the general consensus amongst all black women (emphasis on ALL, light and dark) can be summed up as: NO ONE WANTS YOU! That being said, this young (and clearly ignorant) fella is not the first or last to express these types of thoughts. This light versus dark crap has been going on for far too long if you ask me. I think it’s safe to say that black women are one of the most criticized groups of people in society (just to be clear – I did not say the only group). Continue Reading
As a teenager, I pretty much idolized my twenties and dreaded anything that followed after that. In my eyes, being in your twenties signified one being in their prime- mentally, spiritually, and physically. My twenties meant that I was an adult – free to do what I pleased and fend for myself; and boy did I ever. Well, now that I’m twenty-nine and only a few months shy of turning the big 3-0, I have no choice but to face what I’ve feared for so long.
