Long Sleeves In The Summer

Shatter the Glass Ceiling-Aleese

Growing up in 2k18 in your 20’s I’m sure can have its challenges. Being a young woman in general can be very difficult coming up in the world today. Should I not mention all the technicalities that we as woman face on a daily basis? For centuries, women have struggled with trying to break the…

Nice

Feeling good about who you are starts with you. There are times when I look in the mirror and wonder about what others see and how will I ever keep up with the trends. I have a very small frame and sometimes I look at my body and don’t feel “woman” enough. Now,there are a…

Ownership

I’ve always had an issue with letting people go and letting “it” go. I would do all that I could to salvage that relationship and try my best to make sure that I didn’t look like the bad guy. It is pretty evident that when you feel as if you’re the reason for something going…

On the other side….

I’m not sure what this moment in my life truly means. I was taught that my whole life I would become this woman in my late twenties that I wouldn’t recognize. She would be this woman that was shaped by every bruise and heartache. Rejection would be her reason to love, and the disappointment would…

Sister,Sister

Securing You

“God would never leave me, I have to find security in that.” Dating someone has been a part of my identity for so long. I have always had a person.As I look back, I recognize that it really defined experiences in my life. Now that I have completely been without a “person”, I’ve realized that…

Coffee Shop Hopper

I got into a bad argument tonight. The moment I felt like I was going  to be to able to keep my cool,I didn’t. After that moment, I felt like I had failed. All the good things that I had accomplished that day went down the drain. I sat and wondered how did that escalate…

I’ll say what you won’t….

The other night all I could think about was sex. My mind, my body were totally against my spirit. I felt as if I was coaching myself not to be myself. I can hear the battle going on in my head, between being a freak and being faithful.  But faithful to who? Since I’m not…
