So, What If I Killed Myself?!?!?! ·

So what if I killed myself? Well…that title certainly got your attention, didn’t it? Please believe me. I am not using this title as a poor attempt at click bait. You know like the time I was writing this post ⇒ here about Star Wars just because the new movie was coming out. And no, I do not have immediate intentions on ending my life either. But I do intent to discuss a question that no one admits pops in their head from time to time… So what if I killed myself?

When Do Friends Need...The Cut Off ·

When you listen to J. Cole’s “The Cut Off“, does it make you think about friends in your life? Plus since we are in a new year, I’m spent a large amount of time truly evaluating my life. Examining everything in my life to either make things better or make me better. When I listen to this song, it immediately brought me to friends evaluation mode. When I was in college, I had a special person tell me, “Everyone ain’t your friend”. Honestly I kinda ignored that for a large part of my life until...

AYY...Watch My Soul Speak ·

Here I am all set to speak… My VERY first opportunity to speak to a group of people. No, I’m not counting all the Easter, Christmas, and Mother’s Day speeches I did when I was a kid. I only had to memorize the words and…let’s just say that I didn’t do so well with any of them. Do you want me to say it? Okay, fine…I cried right there in the middle of the church for all of my church members to see because I was so scared to speak in front of people. Is that what you wanted?!

My Lessons in Love

On September 20th, one of my favorite and extremely underrated artists, Sinead Harnett released her first album, Lessons in Love. I’ve been a huge fan of her for a couple of years now. Her voice is intoxicating. Her songs speak to me. When I listen to Sinead’s music it feels to be a perfect marriage of the classic R&B with a modern sound. Now I thought long and hard about writing a review of Harnett’s album, Lessons in Love but…

The Day I Almost Lost It All...Rising from the Ashes ·

This week feels like a celebratory time of year for me. It’s not because of this past Fat Tuesday. It’s definitely not because of Valentine’s Day. And for once it’s not because we are in “The Road to WrestleMania” season. It just feels like a birthday of sorts. (Even though my birthday is in April) I’m reflective this week because on this day last year (February 13th) I was at arguably the lowest points of my life.

You Need a Power Circle ·

This past Sunday I attended my very first black tie event. The Men of Impact Black-Tie Affair was held in Atlanta at the Four Seasons Hotel. This event honored black men for work they have done within their respective industries and communities. Impact Magazine has honored well known actors, journalists, NFL players, and entrepreneurs…so needless to say, I was in the circle of some very influential movers and shakers. Now my “introvertness” and anxiety issues aside, I had a great time...

Most Wonderful Time of The Year...

This is the season that you hear....It's the most wonderful time of the year...For me (Not So Much) As I sit here writing this entry, I am going through so much in my life. One year removed from a place of employment that I felt identified me for 15 years. Moved into a new apartment. Dealing with several new transitions in my life including my 11 year old daughter turning into a young lady. And I’m on the precipice of turning 40. Sure, that’s a lot of things to juggle...
