What am I working on? 🤔 I think it’d be easier to ask what am I not working on😂 As far as projects go, last week, I was hired to write someone’s memoir. I am super geeked up about that. She has an AMAZING story. OMG! Juicy, jaw-dropping type-a story.
Also, I finished scripting a skit & casted the actors on yesterday. So I’ll be filming that soon. I’m designed to be working on many things at a time, to combat restlessness & boredom; however, the bigger task I’m learning is not to leave so many unfinished projects.
I’m doing this by only undertaking tasks, projects, stuff that light me up. Make me feel yummy. So when an idea comes to my head, I sit with it for a few days, ask myself some questions. If after a few days I’m still excited about it then I forge on. If not, I don’t bother.
What are you working on?

I know some folks aren’t into the woo woo, mysticism stuff and I’m not here to convince you otherwise. However, I am a storyteller, a sharer of stories. One of my roles, my purpose in this life is to share my experiential experiences with the hope that it helps someone 🤷🏾♀️
I posted it on Medium. Read the article HERE!
Have you ever had an astrology, spiritual reading? If so, what was your experience? If not, would you consider it?
In an attempt to be more consistent and present, I posted video clips to my Instagram stories titled 3 Get To Know Me Facts. Here they are if you wanna check em out.
Me: 3 Get To Know Me Facts:😂
1. I’ve been keeping a journal since I was 14 years old.
2. I used to have the biggest crush on Idris Elba back in 2006. So much so that I wanted to name my 13-year-old daughter after him.
3. I have over 20 tattoos. I legit stopped counting 🤷🏾♀️ To be totally transparent, while I do love body art, I got the majority of my tattoos bcz I didn’t know how to effectively process pain & confusion. It was an outlet for me, similar to those who turn to drugs, alcohol, food, & sex. When I was frustrated I would go get a tattoo. When I was mad, sad, or just plain ol bored I would get a tattoo. I’m a huge advocate of personal growth & development. It wasn’t until I started my healing journey 7 years ago that I began making the correlation between my behavior & my traumas. Now, I get tatted for a different reason, not for escapism.
Do you use stories on Instagram?
Just wanted to share with y’all a Facebook LIVE video I did that talks about the importance of knowing who you are so that you can show up in this world as the best version of yourself.
Many of us could avoid certain jobs, relationships, situations if we were clear about who we are. Period.
Check it out and let me know what you think!
Hey y’all heeeyyy. Happy 2020!!!
If you follow me on social media &/or been following my blog over the years, I’m always preaching about how everyone has a story & how important it is to share it with the universe.
I was combing through my old videos on Periscope & came across this one I did 2 years ago.
We all have a story to tell…PERIOD! We all have something to share with that someone who is in a similar situation to yours and looking for the bright side. It doesn’t have to be this big ol grandiose story, neither.
If you’re a single mom who works two jobs and manages to meal prep and go to the gym 5 times a week, I’m sure there’s a stressed out mom waiting to hear your story for inspiration.
Check out the video –>> HERE!
Hey y’all heeeyyy,
So, I posted a video on Facebook about my recent car debacle as a warning to women to watch out for car shops that try to scam us.
Thank God for my loving joyfriend and other male counsel who helped me navigate this situation. But it’s just truly unfortunate that there are people who do things like this purely for a buck.

Hey y’all heeeyyy. There’s nothing to see here. Like, for real, nothing to see here. I’m just testing something out. 😊
See y’all soon.

It’s here. It’s here. It’s finally here!!! Well, almost anyway. At 730pmEST, I’m going to talk about the 6 Reasons to Get Unstuck & Write That Book. Why? Simple answer, everyone has a book in them. What I’ve noticed is that many of us are stuck, for one reason or another. Maybe you don’t know where to start, or think that your story isn’t as interesting, juicy, or book-worthy as the others you’ve read. That’s so not the case.
When we operate in a place of “stuck”, we make no to minimal progress. We’re merely existing. We know that we can do better but we don’t.
People come to me and ask how am I able to share my stories and not care what people say. I just start singing, in my Jon B voice, “Don’t listen to what people say. They don’t know about, bout…” Yall remember that song? He had a point that Jon B.
This is how I knew that folks are stuck because they’re too busy worrying about folks passing judgment. Someone is waiting to hear your story, just like those of you who heard mine needed to.
I’m able to share my stories and not care about the shit talkers because I’m no longer stuck. No longer bound by shame, guilt, embarrassment. I can’t change my past so why dwell there?
Some of you have some amazing stories. How do I know? Because y’all tell me but are afraid to tell the world. And I get it. I was there before, too. At some point, though, you gotta let that ish goooo. Like Elsa said. LET. IT. GO.
SIGN UP. It’s FREE. Then join me Sept. 11, 2017 @730pmEST, which is tonight. Should be only about an hour. Bring the wine. I’ll bring the goodies. 😊😊😊
