We steal our own happiness by denying our dreams the opportunity to flourish.
We steal our ability to love others unconditionally by smothering it with past heartache and pain.
And we steal our own Faith […]
So tell me, what have you been “settling” for in your life?
Is it your job?
We are all guilty of “settling” at some point in our lives and I think we actually settle for something every day.
The questions become “What is it?” and “How long will we settle?”
I don’t have the answer, but […]
There have been some things in my life that I probably should have just walked away from.
Certain situations, certain people, and certain things.
But I made that conscientious decision to stay.
Stay to fight for it.
Stay to believe in it.
Stay to trust in it.
And stay because I just felt “I needed to.”

Yes, you are.
You are a Liar because you tell yourself that you are going to work hard to accomplish your next dream, and you don’t. You convince yourself that you don’t have enough time to get it done.

Sooooo, I decided to share what I wrote with you and then […]

Sometimes we reach points in our lives when we feel trapped.
We feel as though we have gone as far as we can go but we still are not happy.
We want to go further, but we are just unsure about the direction we need […]
I had an abortion.
Over my lifetime, several of them.
Yes, I terminated my pregnancies when I knew that I was going to give birth to negativity, doubt, self-hatred and a demolition of dreams.
When faced with the choices of giving life to these feelings or walking them to death’s door, I chose the latter.
I had abortions.
You see, […]
As we begin this New Year with lots of hopes, promises and some resolutions at the forefront of our minds, I thought that this edited excerpt from my #1 National Bestseller, “Get Over It! How to Bounce Back after Hitting Rock Bottom,” was very appropriate to share as my first blog post of 2016.
