I had an ugly cry. One of those cried filled with snot an anguish, not knowing if it will ever end. I just started crying for no reason because I missed my grandpa. I’ve been through a lot these past several months and the fact that I was going through it without him finally caught … Continue reading Processing Moving Forward
I, like so many people, have watched season 2 of Bridgerton with delightful anticipation of seeing Anthony’s journey to find love. For me, the primary reason was due to the fact that the person he fell in love with was a dark-skinned Indian woman, a member of a community that does not get much representation … Continue reading Bridgerton Reflections
I read that caption in a medical record and it couldn’t be more accurate for how I’m feeling about my life right now. This past month has been a slight disaster/ life and death situation.

But in this thinking and processing, I’ve been going back and forth between what God was saying and what the culture was saying, and I got caught up. I realized that in this moment I’ve leaned more into my identity as a black woman and less on my identity as a Christian. That was wrong. In my frustration, I’ve posted, texted, and said things in anger that I never knew I had within me.
So I’m one month into my 26th year. To mark the occasion, I subconsciously booked myself an Airbnb (meaning that I didn’t realize that it was one month but I wanted to do it anyway lol). I was literally down the street from where I live with my parents and my sister. I was feeling … Continue reading One month in…
Since we all have different life experiences, our political views will differ. I have friends who I love very much who are Democrats and Republicans; Liberals and Conservatives. There will be disagreements but please, if you are a person who loves God, let love have the final say.
