Have you had a friend that you've shared your dreams and goals with to find out that they've been slowly working on stealing it? Furthermore, they're using your last name? How can you feel good about representing yourself under my name?  In my eyes it's fraud.

I can't go into great detail, but I came across something that was created using my name without my permission. Sadly it was done by someone that I thought I knew well - someone that I trusted, a friend. I guess it shows a persons character when their business is based on a lie. Obviously they have something in their past if they need to steal someones name ... eventually mine would be tarnished as well.

Initially I left my happy place for a brief moment. I wanted to call this person out publicly on every social site that I could think of,  but I chose not to because at the end of the day God knows what this person has done, and He knows what I do. I chose not to stumble. Someday the truth will come out - it always does.

What happened to trust and loyalty?

I want to be able to trust the person that I'm speaking to, especially if you claim to be my friend. I don't take friendships lightly - I'm a great friend, but I don't go backwards in my relationships. The trust has been broken, character has been tarnished, and the friendship has changed. It's disappointing, but that's life, and in life people will sometimes disappoint you. It doesn't mean that I should never trust again, or that I shouldn't share my life with the people in my circle. It just means that I need to be more cautious next time.

Peace, Love, & Hugs!

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…


Boy am I happy for Monday!

I had a draining Sunday due to a situation that happened and stayed in my thoughts longer than it should have. So today I'm going to write about it and release it.

A gentleman around the age of 60 that had both legs amputated decided that myself and a coworker was his verbal punching bag. As he screamed at us he always managed to say, I'm an amputee in each sentence. We both remained as calm as humanely possible, and I mentally reminded myself as the horrible and hurtful words were spewing out of his mouth - hurting people often hurt people as a result of their unresolved issues. But, what I also was reminded of  how damaging words can be.

I went home and had dinner with my family, relaxed, and did my usual night routine, but I continued hearing his hateful words. I couldn't seem to shake those thoughts. It could be that I hadn't experienced behavior as such after I left home at 18, so I wasn't mentally prepared for it, or he triggered a…

The Number 40

My husband and I have been planning a renewal wedding for our 40th Anniversary in 2017.
As we threw around a few ideas over lunch, the number 40 stuck in my mind - that's a lot of years!

I started thinking about how much growth we've had since starting this union at 18 years of age.
I thought could I give 40 tips for a successful marriage if asked, probably not, but here is a list of 40 things about our marriage that keeps us going.

1. We established roles at the beginning of our marriage. It's not that we don't help each other out, but he does things like the yard, trash, the cars, and I do the inside stuff such as cooking, laundry, and keeping the house neat and tidy. Honestly, I don't remember discussing these designated roles, but we've always done it and it's worked for us.

2. We agree to disagree which is typically accomplished by changing the subject or silence.

3. We laugh at each other. I probably more at him, but we both find humor in each other.
