I was a precocious child. Challenge much? Daily. There are things I remember challenging like it happened just this morning. I was raised in Church, a lot of Church since I went to private school. With daily visits to the school chapel, I often joke that I went to Church 6 days week, and twice […]Read more "The Oh, So Golden Rule"
The thing I love the best about staying in my city during the holidays is that it feels more like my city then than at any other time of the year. It’s the remaining short break from what seems to have become and never-ending tourist season. I love to venture into downtown where the city […]Read more "The City Breathes at Christmas"
I had this friend. I was 15 when we “met”, though when we met, we really didn’t meet. It was random. It was via the phone, one of those that was still attached to the wall, and I swear, if I tried to explain it now, you wouldn’t even believe it. It was random in […]Read more "On Giving Up Too Soon"
Reading what I found to be a pretty interesting blog post about money making, spending, and the 40 hour work week, I thought about a conversation with a friend not too long ago.
In the kitchen, he stood talking with his first born on his hip, his wife in the other room, sitting and talking, as she is carrying their second. We were chatting about the decision they made for his wife not to return to work, the so-called sacrifices that takes, and what it really means in the grand scheme of things.Read more "money talk"
It’s such a big world, and I’m just one girl trying to make sense of it all. It’s a big enough world that it is full to the brim with anything you seek. Whatever it is that you are looking for, you WILL find it. Do you want to prove that racism still exists? It’s […]Read more "What You Seek, You WILL Find."
My opinion on the lack of indictment of Darren Wilson in Ferguson doesn’t matter here. Your opinion doesn’t matter here either. That doesn’t mean that we aren’t entitled to our opinions. It doesn’t mean that “we”, meaning people, don’t have the right discuss, to question, even to protest. What “we” as people don’t have a […]Read more "What’s REALLY Wrong With What’s Happening in Ferguson"
Something that happened more than a few years ago now came to my mind this morning. I once sat across the desk from a big man who owned the small business I was working for and he said to me, “You know, if there’s one thing I’ve learned about you it’s that you adapt well […]Read more "The Funny Thing About Change."
Self-teaching. I’m not sure the phrase even makes any sense. The whole concept of teaching is imparting knowledge you have on others who don’t have it. I suppose it makes more sense to call it self-learning. I’m learning. I’m certainly not teaching. My teachers are YouTube, forums, and a whole trial and error. Self-learning is […]Read more "Self-Learning."
In the interest of practicing what I preach, I’m starting a personal 30 day spread the music challenge on my personal Facebook page. I’m turning off the radio. Well, I will still listen to radio because I pay attention to major radio releases for a lot of reasons, and I actually already turn the radio […]Read more "30 Days of Music Praise"
