โ€œTrust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge himโ€ - Proverbs 3:5-6 Two years ago, today, March 29, 2017, I received the worst phone call of my life. The call letting me know that my mom unexpectedly passed away. The one who brought... Continue Reading →

Iโ€™m changing, stretching, growing, expanding, developingโ€ฆand this โ€œishโ€ ainโ€™t easy. Maturing is not a game.  Once I turned the Big 4-0 (8-years ago), I decided that things needed to change.  I couldnโ€™t keep doing the same things the same way expecting a different result - isnโ€™t that called โ€œinsanityโ€?  Well, the way my one last nerve is set...

Up until 2016, I never knew why I couldnโ€™t remember most of my childhood. My sister would always want to reminisce on things we had done, but I could never bond with her because I wouldnโ€™t be able to recall the time she was speaking on. Then, I learned about trauma from my therapist. Trauma:... Continue Reading →
