Since I’ve been gone I’ve done a lot of reflecting. More importantly I survived corona. I was diagnosed at the end of June and it was tough for a couple weeks but I’m back to myself and more motivated than before. The worst thing about being sick is the possibility of infecting others and I passed the virus to my 15 year old son and his symptoms were a little different from mine. We’re both fine now 🙏🏾
Between corona, the BLM movement, the economy, and white Nationalist spewing hate the world is running amuck right now. So for those us who pray and are believers we need to be praying more than ever.
We’re in a crisis and no political party will save us. Be blessed.
A local hair stylist launched a new product and advertised it on Facebook. So, I visited her booth at a vendor show and I bought a huge bottle of the product, Whisper Whip.
The owner explained the product could do it all. It was a shampoo, a co-wash, a leave in conditioner, and a moisturizer. I used it as a moisturizer. It was light, didn’t weigh my hair down, and left it feeling great. For years, Whisper Whip was in my rotation for wash days, styling days and every day. My hair is coily, has fine strands, is low porosity and prone to tangle. Because of this I do not wear my hair down. A wash n go hairstyle would mean a life sentence of detangling and I have neither patience nor the time.
It turns out I had what I needed all along. The product was good for everything. And so, it is with our faith walk. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. We have everything we need to reach our God given goals and the courage to use our talents. Believe the creator when He tells us he is everything, El Shaddai. Are you just relying on God in one way? You may be missing out on His love in other areas of your life. Do you think a prosperous, abundant life is for others, but not for you? I thought wash n go styles were not for my hair type. My beliefs about my hair kept me from having a fabulous hairstyle. What beliefs about yourself are keeping you from having a fabulous life? Let God into those areas; he created you and knows what you can do.

The time is now! This is the season to pursue your dreams and to rediscover yourself. Most people are floating through life without purpose. Do you really know who you are and where you’re going? Set a plan, act on it and consider how it may affect your family, faith, finances etc. There’s no one way of doing things, trust your instincts and do your research!
As someone who is fast approaching 40 (or middle age) I have learned a few things about the complexities of human relationships. We spend alot of our day trying to “figure people out”, from family to friends , friends to lovers, even the president! People are strange. We can be dominating, dominerring and doting all one day! I find myself very fansciatied by the way we communicate as humans, how we manage all of our emotions throughout the busyiness of the day. I think the most complicated relationships of all are romantic relationships. I few weeks ago, I was outside on the porch enjoying the change in seasons and I decided to share a little bit of what I learned about managing relationships.
We’re all really busy and we sometimes fail at taking care of ourselves. In the past I’ve struggled with extreme levels of anxiety. More recently, I’ve been pretty chill and it has a lot to do with me changing how I view my circumstances. I see the glass as has full instead of half empty!
