How we leave a thing lets us know more about ourselves than how we enter a thing. How did you leave your last relationship and job? Goodbyes are just as important as the hello’s in our lives. First impressions mean a lot but last impressions are everything.
I could write a blog about not settling in every area of our lives. Especially as we enter a new year and consider things that we want to change in 2017. But I want to encourage the single sistas not to settle in dating. Making a decision to join your life with someone is a huge one and shouldn’t be taken lightly or without much prayer and assurance. So, I’ll say it now and repeat it a few more times: ladies don’t settle! Read More →
My blog sister Aquilla always writes about being a mommy and a wife and gives wisdom to other moms and wives. Meanwhile, I’m the single sista holding down my own corner of the world. And I appreciate her space because it helps me prepare for what I desire to have – a strong family and marriage. But I need to speak to the single ladies today. We need to be encouraged and uplifted too. We need validation in our singleness as well. So here’s a few words for the single sista who may be discouraged. Read More →
A few months ago, I wrote a blog entitled “Daddy Issues”. I expressed the hurt that I have experienced as a result of a tumultuous relationship with my dad. I poured out my frustration and laid bare my past mistakes as a result of not fully understanding my worth. I talked about the need for forgiveness and rising above that pain. Well, I have an update and I want to encourage you to work on healing deep-seated wounds like the ones I have suffered. If I can help one person, my pain won’t be in vain. Read More →
Iron sharpens iron,; and one man sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
Over and over I keep seeing messages confirming the importance of purposeful partnerships. I believe that we are all created for relationship – whether that be familial, platonic, business or romantic. We can’t survive alone. Ecclesiastes 4:9 says “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. However, it is imperative that we are linked up with the right people and that we are aware of what their purpose is in our lives. Read More →
As we go through some bad life experiences in our lives, we start to build barriers as a way to protect ourselves. What we may view as protection may ultimately be what keeps us away from what our heart truly desires and cause us to walk through this God given life alone. Read More →
I’m here to be transparent. I have suffered with daddy issues. My father and I have not had the best relationship throughout my entire life. I can only remember a few great times with him where I didn’t feel insecure or unsure. And this has played heavily into the way I have related to men. Over the past few years I have made strides to heal past hurts and fears. It is a process. But God’s grace is so sufficient.
I’ve been watching Married at First Sight since the very first season that it debuted on television. This show captivated me because it put people and an unseemly situation; one that I know has to be completely uncomfortable and outside of anyone’s comfort zone. Just the mere thought of trusting “experts” to match you with your life partner and forging a commitment such as marriage sounds ridiculous. But then I thought about it. Arranged marriages have been happening for centuries. And they worked! So here are a few things that I’ve taken away from Married at First Sight. Read More →
A woman’s greatest strength is her femininity. We inherently own a quality that men yearn for. It has nothing to do with sex but everything to do with our gentleness, softness and quiet confidence. I am coming to realize that for quite some time my perspective on my worth as a woman has been slightly skewed and it has kept me from succeeding in relationships just as much as I have succeeded in gaining degrees and in business.
