Man, 2017 is drawing its final breath and closing out!  Are you ready?  Reality is, whether we are ready or not, the year is ending today and there is nothing we can do to change it.  I do not know about you, but my 2017 has been a roller coaster ride for real.   There... Continue Reading →

The Clapback

The holidays are riddled with people trying to be the happy people they are expected to be while managing stress, dealing with loss, and feeling alone.   Over the last couple of months, I have bumped into far too many people who feel overwhelmed for a myriad of reasons.  I am no stranger to that emotion...

Grateful Much?

A little over a year ago, I saw my dad for the first time in more than 10 years, which does not say a lot as before that I had not seen him since I was about 8.  Like many children, I grew up without my dad.  I knew he existed and for a large... Continue Reading →

For the last couple of months, I have over-committed, over functioned, and underachieved.  My failure to achieve, however had nothing to do with my ability to achieve.  I was and am able to do everything I committed to, provided I rest properly or have sufficient time to get it done.  I have however, been agreeing to do more than I could realistically...

Man Overboard!

Have you ever loved someone to the detriment of your very being?  Have you ever worked so hard to love someone, that you lost you?  Have you ever compromised you to show love to someone, only to be rejected or ridiculed?  I have.  Over the course of my short existence on earth I have been fortunate...
