Black Women & Healthcare

I have been sick and just decided to ignore it on so many different occasions. You may be wondering why I would ignore being sick. It’s because too often I have been turned away and told that doctors are not sure what is wrong with me. I am normally told that there is nothing that…

Marked By Beauty

During this past holiday break I decided to go to work without wearing any makeup. I go to work without makeup pretty often. I love makeup, but if I’m tired or running late I don’t bother. There is this woman at work who always makes comments about me when she passes. You know…the nice nasty…

Yes, I’m Depressed

Lately, many people have taken offense to my absence in their lives. I don’t call people much, because I don’t want to talk. I don’t visit people much, because I don’t want to spread negative energy to anyone else and I definitely don’t want to add any negative energy around me. That doesn’t mean that…

Works Are Faith Brought To Life

I was praying and praying and nothing was happening. I’m not the type of person that is always praying for material things, but this particular time I was. I watched this video (which I love) https://youtu.be/8d1Kq1dnk_c and something hit me. I remembered this passage… James 2:14-2614 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says…

Things They Don’t Tell You About Church

I’ve run into a lot of atheists in this last few months. I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with them, and they have told me some of their experiences with church. Once they explained, I understood what prompted them to make the choice that they made. Religious people are very much responsible for discouraging people…

What Is Abuse

Many are in abusive relationships and are unaware. People will tell you to leave when there is abuse, but do you know what abuse is? The odd thing to me is that people will be in situations where they are abused, yet not want for you to be in abusive situations. This is normally not…

Red Flags In Dating

One of my lovely Instagram followers read my last post and commented that she is new to the dating scene. I thought to myself how much dating has changed over the years. I wanted to do a blog about the dating red flags I see and hear from other people, and some I have experienced…

Dating Don’ts: Men Recall Bad Dates

Have you ever been on an awkward date? Have you ever been the awkward date? Dating is hard, and sometimes when you are nervous you do some things that you wouldn’t normally do. I asked a few of my male friends to tell me about some dating mishaps, and here are some things that stuck…

The Reason That I Deleted My Facebook

I have been thinking about deleting my Facebook for months, and I’ve finally done it. I felt so much lighter when I did. I know that people often talk about comparing themselves to other people when on social media, but that wasn’t why I wanted to close my page. I don’t worry myself with what…

Detroit Isn’t All Bad

Coming to the south I have realized that people have some very negative ideas of Detroit. So many people from Detroit move to Atlanta, you would think that would be the case. When I tell people that I am from Detroit they normally answer with a somber tone as if they feel bad for me….
