If you lost your virginity @11 yrs old, you’d be effed up, too | #DiggingInTheBag |@phettehollins #DITB

Digging in the bag is metaphoric for Digging in the soul. What I discovered as I was scavenging through old photos was how different I was “back then.” Of course, as time progresses the hope is to grow. But sadly, some folks don’t. They stay stuck, stagnant. I want to take the time to celebrate growth…andContinue reading “If you lost your virginity @11 yrs old, you’d be effed up, too | #DiggingInTheBag |@phettehollins #DITB”

Ray of Clouds #Ninja4 | #DiggingInTheBag |@phettehollins #DITB

Unlike my last post, *you can read it –> HERE <–*, I got permission to post the photos I’m about to post without having to mask the face. The ones you see with the masks are, in this case, innocent bystanders. 🙂 OK, HERE IT GOES… I got so many pictures of this dude I had toContinue reading “Ray of Clouds #Ninja4 | #DiggingInTheBag |@phettehollins #DITB”

I live with my baby mama but I swear on my kids we ain’t f@cking – #Ninja2 | #LetItPurge #PurgeItThursday #DiggingInTheBag | @phettehollins #DITB

Purge 1. to rid of whatever is impure or undesirable; cleanse; purify. 2. to rid, clear, or free (usually followed by of or from). ~Dictionary.com Stories connect & heal us. Sometimes we’re stuck and don’t even know it. It becomes a new normal. Second nature. But if you find that you keep ending up inContinue reading “I live with my baby mama but I swear on my kids we ain’t f@cking – #Ninja2 | #LetItPurge #PurgeItThursday #DiggingInTheBag | @phettehollins #DITB”

What betrayal taught me | @phettehollins #WritingThroughIt

Karma means action, work or deed. It also refers to the spiritual principle of cause & effect, where intent & actions (whether good or bad) of an individual influence the future of that individual. I believe in good & bad karma. Most of the time, folks just say “karma” and that’s indicative to mean bad, automatically. WeContinue reading “What betrayal taught me | @phettehollins #WritingThroughIt”

Why no matter how hard I try, I can’t quit humans: The Holiday Edition | @phettehollins

Growing up an only child, I always wanted people around. Cousins, friends, mates, whomever, long as I didn’t spend a sprinkle of time alone. Then something changed. Over the past few years, I realized that I’m not as extroverted as I’d once thought. I was padding myself with people to mask what was going onContinue reading “Why no matter how hard I try, I can’t quit humans: The Holiday Edition | @phettehollins”

Demons: #WritingThroughIt | #BczOfSelina @phettehollins

I swear I’ve never felt so much pain as the pain I feel since I lost my mother. Almost 8 months later and I’m still in shock. Some days all I wanna do is lie in bed, balled up in the fetal position, and cry for days. That’s it. Not take a shower. Not getContinue reading “Demons: #WritingThroughIt | #BczOfSelina @phettehollins”

#DiggingInTheBag – The Intro |@phettehollins #DITB

Because we’re in an age where cell phone camera pictures are all the rage, I thought it’d be fun to take pictures (with my cell phone’s camera) of actual Polaroid and 35mm camera pictures and whatever other types of cameras that were used…back in the day. But while digging in the BIG bag (see imageContinue reading “#DiggingInTheBag – The Intro |@phettehollins #DITB”

(Finally) Taking A Stand Against Abandonment Issues | @phettehollins

About a year or so ago, I really started noticing something was off when it came to me and romantic relationships. Before that, I thought I was unlucky af and just was not cut out for the foolery, not knowing that I was bringing the bulk of the foolishness. But not intentionally though. The thingContinue reading “(Finally) Taking A Stand Against Abandonment Issues | @phettehollins”
