    Dear Black Woman, Forgive the Black Man

    The world seems so divided at the moment with the injustice of black lives, the unlawful, unconstitutional immunity of police officers that take those lives, and the contrast of foundational upbringings. I refuse to say the only difference between “Black Lives Matter” and “All Lives Matter” is opinionated, when it is painfully obvious it’s rooted in generational racism and white superiority. With the world so divided, the one thing that is supposed to be in balance and harmony, is the black man and the black woman. There are so many quotes and posts on the internet about how (black) men should start taking responsibility for their lack of manhood, and…

    Meditation 101

    To be put in the most simplest of terms, meditation is the art relaxation to re-connection. Relaxing the mind and the body to reconnect with your Spirit. The art of focusing on the now and being present in the moment. Most people think that meditation requires you to shut off your brain and have no thoughts at all. Then when you can’t achieve this, you believe you’re not meditating correctly and just choose to give up. Let me clear the air: THERE IS NO WRONG WAY TO MEDITATE! Meditating is never about silencing the mind, it’s about shifting through the thoughts that arise during this time. It’s about listening to…

    How do You Self-Care to fight Depression?

    Depression comes in many ways and in many forms, for a wide range of reasons. It can happen at any time and be triggered by, what feels like, almost anything. It has a way of pulling you further into the abyss even though you watch it happen with a sense of remorse and guilt, yet lacking the willpower to stop it in its tracks. Once it has a hold of you, it’s as if nothing you reach for is in your grasps and anything you do happen to grab, just doesn’t stand a chance against the weight of your emotions. Despite how it feel you are the only person on…

    Fuck Forgiveness?

    Why is forgiveness so important and how do you find it for those that have harmed or betrayed you? How do you let go of the pain and hurt caused by the actions of another, and learn to forgive so you can move forward? Wishing there was a simple trick I could give that just automatically releases the pain from past experiences and creates new spaces for personal freedoms, but unfortunately there isn’t. You simply have to make the choice and put in the work: the choice to change your perspective, and the work it takes to do so. Not everyone deserves your forgiveness and understanding, but that isn’t your…

    Don’t Give Up, You’re Almost There

    This is for you. The one who feels like a complete failure, again. You let them in and they destroyed what little love you have left lingering around inside, even though you expressed the need to never feel that way again. You tried to be happy but you just couldn’t find a reason. This is for you. The one who struggles with suicidal thoughts and wonders if the world would be better off without you. If anyone would miss you or even notice if you were gone. This if for you. The one who battles with depression masked with fabricated laughter and smiles that no none seems to even care…
