The Greatest Power You Forgot You Had

The things we think and believe are often things we've been taught and have adapted as truths. Whether it's religion, values, morals, ethics, etc., the ideas and thoughts that surround these topics are typically not our own. As a child, most of us are taught the difference between right and wrong. Lying is bad, honesty is good. Having a job is good, not having one is bad. Following religious beliefs is good, sinning is bad. And...

The One Who Got Away: The Aftermath

Now that the dust has settled and realization kicks in, you realize that you lost a great thing, a gem, and, in some cases, there's no getting that back.   What do you do next?   You check yourself. Go deep, below the surface. Be honest and vulnerable with yourself and admit where you went wrong. Not where the other person went wrong, but you. Then, do better. Do better with yourself, do better in your platonic relationships, and...

The One Who Got Away

The saying goes, "you never miss a good thing until it leaves you," but the truer statement is, you never thought that good thing would leave you, so you failed to cherish it while you had it.   During my "dating" life, or lack thereof, I've questioned what my purpose was with the people I met. I've always wondered whether my purpose was merely to show the people I encounter what unconditional love was. To give love...

The Burden Of One-sided Relationships

There is an epidemic of one-sided relationships. Relationships void of reciprocation, give and take, and collaboration. These relationships are burdensome, and they appear in any type of relationship.

For any relationship to work, there has to be teamwork, collaboration, and a willingness from both (or all) parties to...

This Has Changed My Life

It’s my birthday! Today, I am twenty-six, and I’m so grateful to be alive and well and able to experience another year of life. As I reflected over the last couple years of my life, the growth has been amazing, and it has brought me to a place I didn’t ever think I’d be in, and for that, I’m grateful. For many of us, we have our lives planned out of the things we want to accomplish by...

Another Year, Another List Of Goals

The last few months of this year have been such an unexpected plot twist, but the experience has been so rewarding. Preparing for this new year, I really wanted to stray away from the traditional new year’s resolutions I would usually set because this year has proven to me that things are going to happen as they should, no matter how I try to plan it out. So, my goals for 2018 are as follows: To...

You Don’t Have To Struggle To Be Successful

It’s okay to not be okay. It is also okay to be okay. It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to accomplish things that don’t require a struggle. It’s okay for things to work out for you, all at once. It is okay. I’ve had to preach this sermon to myself so much lately because, when I look at my life, I’ve been incredibly blessed in so many areas. I come from a single-parent household, but I don’t know...

3 Ways To Conquer Envy And Live Your Best Life

The saying goes, “They wanna see you do good, but never better than them” and it’s been a bitter pill to swallow. Although we know this statement to be true, when it’s in your own circle, it’s hard to deal with. Often, we think the company we choose to keep, whether it’s your family or friends, only want the best for us, and when we begin to make money moves, they’re right there cheering us...
