Every Day Is A Day Of Thanksgiving


Every Thanksgiving my family and I sit around the dinner table and tell each other what we are thankful for. I always use that moment to reflect upon what I’m thankful for daily, not just on Thanksgiving Day.

I’m thankful for every day I wake up with breath in my lungs; for being able to see, the ability to talk and walk, and for the many other normal functions that I often take for granted. Although we bump heads from time to time, I’m so thankful for my friends and family because I know I wouldn’t be where I am now without their love and support. I’m thankful for the many people (good and bad) who I have crossed paths with; their presence has left an imprint on my life in some way. I’m thankful that even though I’m not quite where I want to be in life, I can look back and say I’m not where I used to be. I’m thankful for the trials and tribulations, the highs and lows, and the setbacks and the come-ups that I’ve experienced and will continue to face along my journey through life. Most importantly I’m thankful for a God who loves me unconditionally despite my flaws. I’m thankful for His many blessings and the opportunities that He gives me to be a blessing to others. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Is Cheating Inevitable?

            When most people think about what it means to cheat in a relationship, they automatically think about having sex with another person outside their relationship; but cheating is so much more than just sex. Have you ever made a strong connection with another person while you were in a relationship to the point that you thought about that person frequently and started to develop feelings for that person? What if it got to the point where you started to lose interest in the person with whom you were in a relationship? Have you ever texted or talked on the phone with someone you were attracted to, someone unknown to your man or woman? A lot of people say they have control over how far they will allow a situation to go, but eventually after spending so much time with another person to whom you are attracted and with whom you have a connection, emotions tend to get involved. I think developing a strong emotional relationship with anot

Dreams..........

    One of my old classmates reached out to me in November and asked me to check out a track called "Dreams." I didn’t get a chance to listen to it until mid-December, but I must say when I finally heard the song I was impressed. Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m an avid music lover, especially when the music has meaning. "Dreams" is without a doubt a song with substance; it definitely speaks to the mind of the conscious thinker. The song sheds light on certain taboo issues in the black community, issues people are reluctant to address. These issues include the constant occurrence of senseless violence and people’s lack of morals and priorities. The verse below which is actually one of my favorite verses on the track speaks on one of those issues: “We conditioned to the violence…… black and brown riots, to the point that our alliance follows moments of silence, and it’s sad that the people never see the evil…….. so long as the Gucci belt mat

His Past Ain't Pretty

I feel sorry for any show that comes on television between 8 pm and 11 pm on Thursday nights because Shonda Rhimes has taken that time slot hostage!  Her hit shows  Scandal  and  Grey’s Anatomy  are in their 4 th  and 11 th  seasons, and two weeks ago she premiered a brand new series called  How to Get Away With Murder . The new show has become my instant fave, replacing my love for  Scandal;  but that might change once  Scandal’s  storyline picks up. Last week’s episode of  How to Get Away With Murder  addressed a topic that was so interesting that I had to call some of my girls to get their input.  In the last episode, law student Michaela Pratt found out her fiancé slept with one of her classmates when he was in high school. You might think, Ok that was years ago and everyone has a past BUT the tea is that her classmate is a man. That changes the situation completely. She found out they slept together through the classmate who joked that he could have been the fiancé. Confu
