When Women Love Themselves, Love Everyone They Encounter

I finally got it! When you truly accept your flaws and love yourself for who you are and what you look like, without wanting to constantly change (improve) your appearance, there is a sense of self-love. I didn't realize that everyone wasn't born with this love.  I have never been the type of girl to make a big [...]

If You Have Any Doubt In Your Mind, You Are Beautiful!

If you had any doubt in your mind, you are beautiful! You are beautiful because of the DNA running through your veins. You are the makings of royalty true Kings and Queens. ALL life began with you. Your gift is your blackness!  Stand proud in it, your skin is a gift. All that see it, [...]

The Normalization of Dysfunction is Astonishing!

"You just have to get to know them" & "That's just how they are" are excuses given by loved ones for their folks' bad behavior.  I've been seen as problematic because I became unwilling to stay quiet and "keep the peace" about dysfunction once my daughter was born. I refused to teach her that chaos, dysfunction and disrespect was environmentally normal, because it is NOT! I [...]

You can’t beat a man who battles himself every day…

“You can't beat a man who battles himself every day...” Says my 8-year-old out of the blue at the most perfect time. Mind you nobody in my home was fighting, but I was sitting around overthinking a situation I can't change. I thought I was overthinking quietly but obviously; my thoughts were louder than I knew. LOL. [...]

Beware of Those that Seek Drama to Survive

There are a large number of men and women who seek drama to survive! I have been called uncaring, self-absorbed and indifferent because I’m unable to jump on the soap opera bandwagon of life. This is a tactic that drama kings and queens use to draw you into the mess, so you won’t remain standing on [...]

Opportunity is Everywhere

Successful people are successful because they refuse to let opportunity pass them by. They aren’t afraid to hear NO and they hear it often, but they are emotionally intelligent enough to know just because they were told “NO,” it’s not the end all be all. It means NO…Not right now. As actor’s statistics say, we [...]

Never fight a woman over a man!

Ladies, please explain to me the logic of fighting another woman over a cheating man. I understand the logic of both of you fighting him. I will never embarrass myself fighting any woman over a cheating man. (Cherie Johnson Is 2 cool for that.) If women banned together, men would stop. Other women owe you [...]

What does success mean to you?

Living in Los Angeles, I realized success means different things to different people. That’s okay! Everyone has the right to have their own success meter that works for them.  Unfortunately, the majority of people I ran across are totally caught up in material. Not only is it how they gage their own success, but how they [...]
