Beautifully Black Culture


There have been a few topics on my mind. This blog post will discuss three topics around Black History Month, the late Ms. Cicely Tyson, and the Sew Powerful Purse Project. February in the United States is dedicated to time when the nation uplifts the history of African Americans and celebrates Black History Month. The […]

Thankful Even in 2020


I would be telling a lie to say there is nothing to be thankful for in 2020. Have there been challenges during 2020? Well of course there have been numerous challenges; a medical pandemic heightened those challenges. Many plans were postponed or cancelled this year. Plans like seeing one of my best friends get married […]

The Art of Networking


I am peeping my head from outside of self quarantine and social distancing. I have primarily been writing in my journal. Writing longhand is therapeutic.

Having now read more of the book and learning about Mrs. Obama’s path to becoming a phenomenal First Lady, I wanted to discuss more about her […]

Remembering How to Become…


I’ve been stuck with regard to writing. Reflecting on why, I realize the main reason is self doubt. Questions floating around in me include why bother? Will anyone benefit from my words? Does anyone even care about what I have to say? I needed something or someone to validate that sharing my story via this […]

Sowing and Reaping


This week my mind is whirling around a few things. I am still thinking about the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle who are now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. It is so interesting how in one instant our lives can change. Well it seems that changes occur in an instant but most times there are past actions taken that lead to current occurrences.
