10 months loc’d, this is my journey …

When i decided to start my loc journey I never could have anticipated the confidence and freedom it would bring. I think at first I was mostly focused on just getting past the dreaded "ugly stage" where it's hard to say what's going on, on your head. Lol! I'm happy to say, the "ugly stage" …

Emancipate yourself so you may grow. 

I was raised in a large family. Mom, dad, four brothers and two sisters. I'm the second youngest, out of all my siblings, but the youngest girl. I've noticed that I sometimes struggle to maintain a balance between living for my family and living for myself. The norm for me has been to allow my family's …

I love you unconditionally.

Being with him, for, numerically what could be seen as a brief time, taught me how to love myself, and others, unconditionally. He was the catalyst, and after our time together came the realization that I had been going about love (of myself and others) all wrong. Before him, there were always conditions attached to how I …

Okay.. now vibrate higher.

Despite advocating for self love and finding joy from within I must acknowledge that things are still going to evoke an emotion out of you sometimes. People are still going to hurt you, and make you cry. You will still get angry. You will still spew cuss words in your head, or maybe even out …

I feel over fulfilled, so, it’s only right that I share.

I can’t believe it’s already been a month that I’ve been in South Korea! Apparently, time is not waiting around for me to spend counting the days. But, it also feels like I’ve been here for so much longer than a month. I’m equating this to the fact that I feel so comfortable and content …

It’s about that time…

I was looking back at all my blog posts so far and I can proudly say the growth is evident. My pride is based on humble intentions, the credit does not belong to me, we give thanks to the most High for providing me with the tools to tap into my full potential. I am …

But, sometimes, you just want to be held.

Whether you're in between relationships, in a long distance relationship, or never been with someone before, have you ever had that longing to just be held? Not even anything sexual just a good ol' cuddle session where you could fall asleep in their arms feeling the warmth. Well, I'm headed into my fifth month out …

“I’m just a soul whose intentions are good.” — Nina Simone

This post took me much longer than I anticipated, to write, because of how much these words mean to me. I wrote, read then reread and wrote again. Finally, here it is... I’ll never forget the moment that I dropped religion. It was two years ago, during my last year of my undergrad. I took …

I’m Trying to be Strong.

I’m trying so hard. I want to be strong for you, and especially for myself. I want to detach, I don’t want to miss you or want you. I’m trying really hard to understand you and everything I need to understand and as much clarity as I'm getting is as much sorrow as it brings …

Just breathe.

What do you do when you can’t breath because the walls feel like they’re going to cave in? When you can’t catch your breath and you’re fighting against your gag reflexes. You keep thinking, what am i going to do? I recently had one of those days. One of those days that has you rushing …
