It’s Okay Not to OFFER to help

This past month several people have offered to help me with writing my sponsorship letter to send the letter to potential sponsors to help with my presentation for the Blogging While Brown conference And none of these people have followed through. Am I disappointed? Yes. Did it affect me greatly? No.  In fact, the whole […]

You Could Have Done It First

I am so tired of hearing people say, “Don’t you wish you had created Facebook?” or “I’m going to create the next Facebook.” Well, I have one thing to say to all of those people: you could have done it first. Everything you see started in the mind. If there is anything you think is […]

Why? Why? Why?

Why do I care when you clearly could care less? Why do you want me to make your priorities my priorities EVEN though the situation could have been addressed? Why do I always have to be the bigger person when confronted by stupid ass people? Why can’t I just say what I want to say […]

Go Ahead…It’s OK to Cry

People mistake tears for weakness.  Sometimes you have to have a big, hearty cry for emotional and spiritual cleansing.  It’s OK to breakdown, have a fit and release all your frustrations as long as the pity party ends.  And when it’s over, you will  either be heavy or walking on air because the weight has […]

Anyway, this person called himself being positive and encouraging, but there was always a […]

Count Your Blessings, Not Your Worries

That is much easier said than done.  When you used to have a cashflow and you’re lucky if you get a drip, worry kicks in.  When your wardrobe fights you and appears to be winning; yep, you’re going to worry.  When everything that could go wrong actually goes wrong, stress becomes your best friend. But […]

NEGRO??

While completing my census form on yesterday, the option for chocolate people were Black, African American or Negro.  WTF? Negro?  The only option missing was “colored.”  I tell you.  The more things change, the more they stay the same. Today I was reading Brainwashed by Tom Burrell, and there was an image of a sign […]

My Writing Assignments Are Going Well

I am a journalist for How They Living Ain’t No Joke, the baby of George and Peytyn Willborn.  Quite exciting. Also, I am editing True Elegance Magazine.  OK, I only did two stories.  Just know that the ones that are grammatically correct and easy to read are mine. I contributed to our church’s history book […]
