Recently, I’ve been thinking about the words “independent” and “married” and how people grow attached to the titles. As you know I’ve traded the “single” title, for “married”, yet people seem to believe that my independence was lost in the exchange. Let me start by saying I hold both titles in high esteem, because each provide a different set of lessons and experiences.  So the question is does this new “married” title make me less independent?  It appears that way to some. I have noticed through conversations with married people and/or the strange way single people now choose to interact … Continue reading Untitled…

I Love the Body that God Gave Me…

I Love the Body that God Gave Me.   I have many people in my life in search for the “perfect body.”  Whatever that means?  They look in the mirror and see a body that is hideous.  At least that is what they have convinced themselves with silly self talk about their bad “shape” or “look.”   Each year they make these ridiculous exercise goals.  You know the ones; “I will lose weight or fit into those skinny jeans.”  So for the first couple of weeks, and in some cases months, they spend an exhausting amount of energy trying to stick … Continue reading I Love the Body that God Gave Me…

Reconcilable Differences Part 3

The Other Woman “The other woman finds time to manicure her nails; the other woman is perfect where her rival fails.  And she’s never seen with pin curls in her hair…  And when her old man comes to call, He’ll find her waiting like a lonesome queen.  ’cause when she’s by his side it’s such a change from her old routine.  ”  Nina Simone   When I was younger I absolutely  fell in love with Nina Simone’s music.  I would sit quietly on this plastic covered couch trying my hardest not to scratch or get caught playing my grandmother’s records.  … Continue reading Reconcilable Differences Part 3

Soapbox Wednesday: Everyone Has Them

Everyone has them… As much as I have found my level of peace; I am human.  There are certain things that no matter what I do, either rub me the wrong way or triggers that “C’mon Son,” thought in my head.  No, I’m not talking about the normal pet peeves; rude people, inconsiderate smokers, bad drivers, or those dreadful movie talkers.  I’m talking about those things that may only have an impact on that very moment, but until it happens again, you totally forget how much that annoys you.  You know, like carrying a large number grocery bags in both … Continue reading Soapbox Wednesday: Everyone Has Them

Soapbox Wednesday: Does that make me less of a Woman

I was thinking the other day about decisions we make in our life.  Some of us live out our life on television allowing everyone in on their process toward a big decision.  I mean last summer most of the world watched as LeBron James played out his “Decision.”  Yet to me, decisions are personal.  We go back and forth weighing the pros and cons in our mind and then in most cases we decide.  This brings me to a decision that I believe women experience in some way or another, “Will I have children?” Yes believe it or not, it … Continue reading Soapbox Wednesday: Does that make me less of a Woman

Soapbox Wednesdays: Get Out My Way Woman….I Got People to Prove Wrong!!

On a good day some would call me an extrovert; I truly do have strong opinions on almost every topic.  I guess it comes from researching and reading a lot.  I will not claim to know it all by far but I’m an information junkie.  So when I hear things and they don’t make sense to me or are emotion driven…I don’t get offended nor do I argue any longer; I’ve outgrown that reaction.  Plus, now I have this blog to express my opinions and give others a chance to question theirs.  We have “Old Skool Thursdays” and now I … Continue reading Soapbox Wednesdays: Get Out My Way Woman….I Got People to Prove Wrong!!
