A Fool Needs An Audience…

Have you ever witnessed two people going back and forth over something that really isn’t important??? You know like how Celebrities go back and forth on Social Media instead of picking up the phone and calling the person??? I’m learning more and more each day arguing with a fool only reveals the fool in you…

Fools need an audience… They’re predators seeking attention and many times, we fall into their traps and give it to them… Constantly (Click HERE to read more)

The Cages We Live In…

“If you look at the people in your circle and don’t get inspired, then you don’t have a circle, you have a cage.” – Unknown

Some of you are creative, brilliant, and you possess limitless potential… Within you are creations only you can bring to life; concepts and visions only you can give birth to… You’ve dreamed of places only you can reach, but you’re currently trapped in a cage called “friends”… You are extraordinary, yet you are dead center of mediocre; center of people who lack passion… When looking at your circle, you’re never inspired to become greater, only tempted to fit into the boxes in which they live. You find yourself many times feeling trapped and unable to move forward. You want more, but your circle doesn’t… They’re fine with living “paycheck to (Click HERE to read more)

Oh No…

Have you ever noticed how an “Ex” waits for that perfect moment to creep back in? It could be the death of a love one… The loss of a job… Your car breaking down or any other moment in life when it seems you’ve been dealt a bad hand… It’s like your “ex” is patiently waiting for that moment to come in and save you…

Some of you have fallen for the trick… You found yourself vulnerable; emotionally unstable; a damsel in distress (I’m not only talking about the ladies here, some of you fellas have fallen into the damsel role) and out of nowhere, here comes the ole Ex to save the day… Because they’re familiar with what makes your heart smile, they’re able to cheer you up or help you see the brighter days ahead, before (Click HERE to read more)

Wait It Out…

Do you remember missing curfew; attempting to sneak in the house, but only to find your Mom waiting in the dark for you? I mean it didn’t matter how many minutes you were passed curfew, she patiently waited for you to come creeping through the door. Over the years I have learned you have to learn from those moments. You have to patiently wait in the dark to turn on the light… This requires trusting your instincts and allowing the truth to reveal itself… You know that feeling that keeps on saying “Something isn’t right…”. Many of you currently doubt that inner voice and it’s causing you to stress out, continue to stay in toxic situations, or it’s flat out messing with your esteem…

So why do we doubt our instinct? Well it could be because of several reason, but most times it’s because we haven’t healed from past experiences and we’re carrying around baggage that causes us to question everything. Because I have reconciled the experiences of my past, I can see things clearer these days than ever. I can see when things aren’t right; suspect; or when someone is covering up dirt done in the dark. Have I always been here, absolutely NOT!!!! I can remember (Click HERE to read more)

Fitting In Is Overrated…

So over the weekend I finished Netflix “Sex Education” and I must admit, it surprised me… The cast is amazing; concept is original, and throughout each episode there are so many hidden treasures… The standout character for me is Lily… A teenage girl who wants to have sex so bad until every guy she encounters become a target… Closer to the end of the season, it’s revealed as to why she desperately seeks sex… She wants to fit in; not feel as though she missing out or being left behind… Now I can honestly relate to her because at 16, I felt exactly the same… That was the year I transitioned from “virgin” to “sexual genius”, but looking back today, I realized just how clueless I was in regards to fitting in…

Many of you are just like Lily and the 16 year old me… Maybe it is not sex you’re seeking, but you are seeking the approval and validation of others… You want to “fit in”, not feel as though you’re missing out and being left behind… For whatever reason you feel like the outcast… Like you’re not the “cool kid”… So let me ask you a question… What is it you feel you’re missing??? Is it this exciting and extraordinary life??? Is it sex; marriage; relationship??? Do you feel like you’re not pretty/handsome enough??? Fashionable enough??? What is it about them or it that has you feeling like you want some of it??? Here’s one of the hidden truths I learned from “Sex Education”, “Fitting In Is Overrated”…

Many of you day in and day out compare yourself to everyone around you… You’re on Social Media comparing your life to the perception of success of others… You’re taking what you’ve done in the past and comparing (Click HERE to read more)

The Mindset Of Happiness…

What makes you happy??? Do you even know??? Have you ever thought about it???

There are so many people in the world unsure of what truly makes their hearts smile… For some, it’s a new car, house, or designer bag… For others its those memorable moments with family and friends… Happiness is subjective; has no set definition, and it’s something that comes and goes… But again, what makes you happy??? Are you even happy???

I’m learning more each day to take life as it comes… If there are good days, appreciate them… If there are bad days, learn from them… Whatever life throws my way, I’m learning to find the best in it and not allow it to define or destroy me… Happiness is something that is driven most times by what is happening (Click HERE to read more)
