2022 is over and I’ve honestly never been so glad for a year to end. My theme of the year is to Count it All Joy. To do that, I knew that once the new year started I needed to make some changes. After a year of chaos and some out of character behavior I … Continue reading The Purge
I haven’t blogged in a while mainly because I just didn’t know what u wanted to say. The month is coming to a close and so much has happened. The growing pains are continuing but I feel more peace and resilience with each trial that comes my way. The constant question that plagues is how … Continue reading Transition Tears
Writing has been on my agenda of things to do but I just kept pushing it to the side. What could I possibly write about? Life has been so chaotic these past few weeks (let’s face it now, months) and I feel like I’m barely keeping up. I was talking to my friend the other … Continue reading I’m Sad
Grief has a funny way of sneaking up on you when you least expect it. I recently have really been missing my grandfather; his words, his advice, his kindness. I’m sitting on the train wondering what I should blog about this month and that grief brought me back to something I wrote back in November. … Continue reading My Grandfather’s Hands
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. I come out of it feeling like I’ve lost so much; specifically my ovary which contains much of my hope … Continue reading Failure to thrive in adult
Happy August friends! Well Summer 2021 is more than halfway done and I realize I have not posted since the end of June. This summer has been chaotic but I’m finally having some moments of stillness while I’m on vacation. In reflecting I discovered that I have recently had this sudden need to find relevance … Continue reading Time for a Check In
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…
I believe the last time I posted in here was in September. I just finished my AmeriCorps experience and was about to start graduate school. Much uncertainty was occurring in life. I just lost a research opportunity and was so nervous about what grad school would be like. Thank God I got a job a … Continue reading It’s been a while…
Now I’m not strung out and acting crazy, but I would be lying if I said that I’m not a little stuck right now as I’m transitioning into this new life as a graduate student.
