the Blog


June 19, 2020

I had a different blog scheduled for today.  I scheduled it for June 19th, unaware of the significance of the day.  I’m ashamed and saddened at the previous sentence, but it’s true.  I don’t think I am alone in that.  Every person is different, regardless of skin color, every journey is different, but I realize […]

What is This Really About? What is Happening? Have you stopped to ask yourself that question?  Have any of the events that have transpired triggered you to pause and ponder the details?  Several times I have found myself reading content, listening to reports, and asking something along the W’s- Why, What, Where, When…  At first, […]

  Dreaming Big During a Quarantine Do you remember that dream you once had?  The one that for one reason or another you didn’t follow through with?  We are in odd times, sister.  Unusual.  Something we have never experienced and something I pray we don’t see again.  At least not in this way.   But […]

  Solitude to Re-emerge How are you spending your time in self-quarantine?  For well over a month now, we have had to isolate ourselves away from others in hopes of slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Coffee shops are my FAVORITE.  Seriously, I could sit at one for hours, smelling the coffee beans, the pastries and just enjoying the atmosphere while writing or reading.  Anthem coffee in Tacoma, WA, one of my favorite spots, just partnered up with a new coffee app company and what do you know, the first coffee […]

Have you ever had one of those days where you have found yourself inside of your own head?  The doubt, fear, lies and what if’s ring so loudly.  Maybe you have even found yourself in a rollercoaster of emotions, tears flowing endlessly and every task daunting.  It’s easy to get stuck in that.  It’s easy […]
