Today Is The Day! Rarely do I engage in movie reviews. However, this movie was an incredible feel good movie. I feel the marketing was way off on this though. Sure the characters are bright and funny and grab your attention. And who can't laugh at Wanda Sykes! Not to mention I am a huge… Continue reading Ugly Dolls…It Speaks Volumes
Be Gentle With Yourself! There are days when we do better than others. Especially when it comes to healing, processing, or even writing. We are currently working on our second book, Imperfections, which we hope to release very soon. However, it is taking a bit longer than expected. Which is frustrating for us, and I… Continue reading Pace Yourself…Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day

Whether it was about what to eat, how we dressed, who our friends were, or anything else. It did not matter if the choice was for something… Continue reading Create a Change You Like
Not Everyone Will Like You...and that is okay! Recently we had this misfortune to find the person we placed trust in was, well, not so trustworthy. It seems that one thing would be said to pacify me and let me feel safe, while at a different time discrediting that very statement. I know that is… Continue reading Trust…and Second Chances
