Walking Towards My Destiny

Winter 2014

I absolutely looooved this mural when I saw it so I had to take a quick pic because I’m a sucker for dope and creative art. The mural is called Tunnel-vision and it was painted by an artist named Blue Sky in the 1970s. You can find the artwork on the wall of the Federal Land Bank Building in Columbia, SC. A guy snapped this picture of me at the end of last year and I didn’t realize how symbolic it was until after he took the shot and I looked at it on my phone. I was planning on taking the picture facing the front but he took the pic while I was running towards the mural which turned out to be a great shot.
I posted the picture on my Instagram and I captioned it “Walking towards my destiny.”  The picture perfectly captured the stage of my life that I’m in. At the end of last year I made the decision to step outside of my comfort zone so I moved to a new unfamiliar state without a plan or clear direction for the next step in my life. For the most part I’ve played it safe with the decisions that I have made over the years so this was a huge step for me to take. I can’t lie and say this path has been easy because it hasn’t. I’ve been nervous, anxious, bitter, angry, sad and I’ve second guessed my decision so many times. Taking this journey has caused me to be hit with a lot of highs and lows but along the way I feel like the pieces to the puzzle are starting to come together and I’m discovering my lane.

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

Wakanda Forever

I plan to write a post about how f*cked up 2020 was before the year ends. 😔 I feel the need to express in my own words how exhausting, depressing, and brutal this year has been emotionally and spiritually.  I wanted to dedicate a post to one of my favorite actors, Chadwick Boseman. I found out he passed like many people when the news broke on social media last Friday night. My sister is always the bearer of bad news regarding the deaths of some of my favorite actors and musicians, so like clockwork, she was the one that showed me a screenshot of the headline "Chadwick Boseman dies from colon cancer at the age of 43." I couldn't process the words that I was reading because it was unbelievable. I thought it was fake until more credible sources confirmed the news. For almost an hour, my sister and I sat in silence on the couch reading headline after headline that our beloved superhero was dead. I shed tears going to sleep thinking about his death, and I woke up the next day
