An Open Letter

Hi, it’s me again. Spoiler alert, there are skeletons in my family closet. The kind that haunts you late at night where you cannot sleep. Emotionally I have had walls up for as long as I can remember. People have always told me, either you know me well, or you do not know me at […]

An Open Letter

Hi, it’s me again. Happy 2019. May this year be better than the last.  Deciding to choose peace regardless of the circumstance is a decision that will create happiness.

An Open Letter

Hi, it’s me again. I have been thinking about all of the emotional stressors such as relationship issues. There is no peaceful way out of any mess.

An Open Letter

Hi, it’s me again. I heard something said about another person a little over a month ago at an event. A woman who is known for stirring up drama, prompted by someone else or not, passed judgment.
