If You’re Reading This… You Are Lucky

It’s 2023 and we’ve made it. Not all of us have been so lucky and not many of us feel the luck, having lost loved ones and experienced changes that weren’t so flattering to our objectives. But we are here and that is fortunate. For me, 2022 was a lot of lessons to be patient, […]

My Love Letter to At Home/ My Love and Hate Relationship with Movies

My Love Letter to At Home/ My Love and Hate Relationship with Movies

After watching a few movies that featured a struggling writer trying to find her place among competitors, be it as an author, freelancer, journalist, etc I knew what I wanted to blog about. Then things changed. You see, in a way I was living in a movie with my writing career. In the last five […]

Let Me Count Your Sneezes

Let Me Count Your Sneezes

Admittedly, I’m weird. Delightfully, while I’m always weird, I can delight people with strange observations at the sneakiest of times. Take the market for example.

To keep me writing, and feeling like I’m making progress, besides begging you all to read […]

From Showing Off to Showing Up by Nancy Regan

Still not yet a review, just a moment that I was inspired to share and show up for. There are many similarities I’m finding, within the stories in From Showing Off to Showing Up and this particular one brought back a situation I am not proud of. One, like Nancy’s, is a moment that ripped […]

Taking Action Based on From Showing Off to Showing Up by Nancy Regan

I heard so much of this book and the fabulous author that I had to get it. I wasn’t exactly sure it would be for me, however, as I naively never really saw myself as a show off or having the need to be a great public speaker. I was wrong. I hate and love […]

Not As Special As You Said I Would Be

Not As Special As You Said I Would Be

Growing up being consumed with the feeling of being special was both a blessing and a curse.  I was “the real child “, “the baby”, “the perfect one” yet I could do wrong and boy, was that wrong. I remember distinctly my brother telling me he predicted I would be beat up because I thought […]
