Finding Closure

Last weekend was pretty unsettling for me. I was looking for something that I desperately needed to use at the salon. My hair closure. For those who donโ€™t know, closures are these parted sections of weaves that bring the hair style together nicely. Just before you run off thinking Iโ€™m gonna be talking about hair all through, you may wanna sit in for this, it gets spicy ๐Ÿ˜‰

M. The Explorer

A wise man once said that the journey is oftentimes more important than the destination. I found this to be true, when I set out on a journey against popular opinion- a war against my comfort zone. This was a journey that my soul longed for. My body willed it and my Spirit conceived it.

Change Looks Good on You

The year started with a social media rave around the #10yearchallenge. Basically, this involves juxtaposing a picture from 10 years back with a more current picture of you. From the pool of pictures I found on Instagram, some changes were so obvious, while others not too obvious. Point is, youโ€™re not the same person you were 10 years ago.

Edge of Reason

I had frozen on my screen again. I had been staring at it for almost 30 minutes and had no clue what the text in the opened Word document read. Hands trembling, heart beating fast, tears struggling to fall, but I quickly wiped them off. No, this wasnโ€™t gonna happen, โ€˜Blacks donโ€™t crackโ€™. Continue reading “Edge of Reason”

Itโ€™s officially our first post for 2019! Iโ€™m so happy to have you here- both old loyal followers and new followers. I promise to add some spice to your reading list, God helping me.

Letโ€™s start from Netflix. I think Netflix has killed my already nonexistent social life ๐Ÿ˜‚. I found myself on the couch watching movies for the most part of the holidays- which isnโ€™t such a bad thing. Matter of fact, it felt really good to just be Garfield. ๐Ÿ™ˆIโ€™m back to serious adulting, so letโ€™s get serious. Continue reading “2019: Birdbox and Fears”

An A-Z Challenge โ€“ Looking back over 2018

So excited about everyone joining in on the Think Thank Challenge. #TTC2018. Check out this awesome list! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

Women of Warfare! (WOW!)


I have to admit that when it comes to the idea of developing an attitude of gratitude, Iโ€™m a keen advocate. Particularly since Godโ€™s Word warns us that an unthankful attitude can cause us to have futile and foolish thoughts and worse, darken our hearts (see Romans 1:21).

No way do I want this to be my story!

I came across the idea of a Thankfulness challenge from Dainty M. See her post on this at:

Dear friends and followers, there are some who expected to celebrate the New Year but did not even make it to the end of 2018. Remember โ€“ if it were not for the grace of God, this could so easily have been me, or you!

Itโ€™s easy to beat up on ourselves if we havenโ€™t accomplished the goals we set out to achieve, or to entertain a bad attitude because life didnโ€™tโ€ฆ
