I am. Two powerful words that we need to remember to place positive words after.                                                                                                                                              
 The word Enough I decided to place after I Am on my Murraytalk t-shirts because personally I think it's a great thing to know and believe in the value of your own self-worth. It's how I see myself  - I am enough as I am.  I may not be what others expect me to be, but I am who I am. I Am Strong, Happy, Thankful, Blessed, Confident. I am a daughter, sister, friend, grandmother, a wife. I am bent not broken, misunderstood, creative, different, the owner of my actions, good enough. I am passionate, spiritual, believer of miracles. I am not what happened to me. I am me - I am enough!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       When you grow up in an environment like I did where someone daily is trying to break your spirit and self-worth - at the end of the day you sometimes don't feel good enough. I'm a fixer so for me I wanted to fix everyone and everything back then. I wanted peace, I wanted them to be happy... feel that they were enough, but in doing that I kind of lost who I was and felt defeated. I had to begin telling myself that I was strong enough, good enough, and could do all things through Christ. I had to remind myself that he created me so I am enough. I guess in a way I'm still trying to fix things and save the world, but people need to hear it or see the words sometimes as a reminder. It's easy to get lost when you're in the middle of the storm. I just want from toddlers to the 100 plus year old to know and believe that they are enough.                                                                        
 I often think back to that ridiculous chant that we would say to each other on the playground as kids - sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me. Are you kidding me - where did that crap come from? There is absolutely no truth in that. Words hurt!

Choose your words carefully, Be you, live and love your life, and remember You are enough.

 Peace, Hugs & Love


I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.

Have An Open Heart

As I was sorting through pictures this morning I came across pictures of my seven-year-old granddaughter with girls that she met for the first time on a 2 day stay in Prescott. I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…


Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…
