RE: A Letter to 26

Five years ago I wrote a letter to my 31 year old self and today I’m finally looking back at it. Talk about restraint. I’m smiling as I get through it because my 2015 problems definitely weren’t anything and they weren’t ready for 2020 social distancing. Adulthood is still one big panic after another. Not…

Your Plate is Way Too Full for Impasta Syndrome

Women rock! We work (sometimes multiple jobs), volunteer, sometimes have a hobby, and even parent at the same time. We still make less than our counterparts and if you have a little melanin in your DNA, you make way less than what you’re worth. There’s a lot of us out here smashing goals and barriers…

It’s Okay to Repair Your Own Boat

Being selfish vs selfless; you have to draw a line or you will drown trying. For the last two-ish years, I’ve been on a super self-aware journey. Being a writer forces me to embrace that I’m goofy, it’s a personality trait but also it forces me to be real with myself. When I write reality…

Why I Left My Publisher

In 2014, a small vanity publisher told me that my book was awesome and that there was a space for me at her publishing company. I was ecstatic as I’ve been writing novels since high school. I always wanted to be a writer. The light bulb hadn’t gone off yet that I was indeed already…

Businesses Can’t Vote But Their Owners Do

I’ve never been good at being quiet. I got “talks excessively” marks on my report card on a regular basis. When I see something that is wrong, I speak on it. When I do something that doesn’t align with my personal beliefs or my mission in life, I step up and I apologize for it….

Cheers to Your Failures

When’s the last time you failed at something? You gave it your all and everything still fell to pieces. Applaud yourself for trying, don’t give up, and just know that no one is out here highlighting their failures on social media. Every failure I’ve experience humbled me and gave me motivation to grow stronger. I’m…

Facebook is Creating a False Sense of Safe Space

Facebook started out as a cool exclusive site for college kids to college and once the site graduated into something bigger, so did the issues. Frankly, the bigger Facebook grows the bigger the headache it gives its users. Facebook used to be the cool place to hang out and now stats show that teens and…

Self-Confidence Wasn’t Built in a Day

Fun fact: No one really knows what they’re doing! The universe isn’t conspiring against you. In the age of instant gratification society thinks everything should happen within two days of asking for it. That is not the case with inner self-care. You can read every self-help book out there but unless you’re willing to put…

What the Future: Student Loans Are Super Sketch

Candidates are pushing student loan debt relief and they should as the current balance is over a trillion dollars. Student loan debt is a universal issue as it affects the elderly and millennials but what it did to the millennials was created a ripple effect that will take decades to repair the North American economy….
