I was feeling a bit nostalgic last week when I found an old college ID in a drawer while searching for AAA batteries…It made me think back in time when I was full of dreams and praying for endless opportunities that would help make those dreams come true. I started thinking about how we […]
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.

You see, I get caught up in that “Superwoman” syndrome and focus on the things that I need to do, the things that I failed to do and the things that have to be […]
There are so many of us sleeping with our dreams at night but living with nightmares during the day…
