No regards for value

Have you found yourself saying, “I’m always there for others, but never are they there for me”? Why do you suppose that is? Do you think it’s because they don’t know how to show up, or they feel they don’t have to? Perhaps, they feel they don’t have to do anything, because you’ve always doneContinue reading “No regards for value”

Looking for the rain

Whenever I’d see dark clouds form in the sky, it was an indication to me, that rain or a thunderstorm was very likely to come. In the event that it did, I would automatically do one of two things: grab an umbrella or immediately seek shelter. Most often, I chose the latter, because I simplyContinue reading “Looking for the rain”

Time to get off

When my sisters and I were little, our mother would often take us to Kress’, in historic downtown Montgomery, AL. Considering the fact that we were extremely poor, I looked forward to most Saturdays, because I knew where we were going. Extremely popular, Kress’ was a huge store, and one I considered to be anContinue reading “Time to get off”

It never happened

I’ve never been a fan of insects, particularly flies, mosquitoes, and bees. They’re annoying yet impactful little bugs, that never seem to go away, no matter how many times you swat them. They’re constantly swarming around waiting to sting and bite you, and when they do, they quickly fly away leaving you in discomfort andContinue reading “It never happened”

She’s gone

For the people that don’t know me, I’m glad you didn’t meet me prior to the change. I rarely like to talk about the old me, because it only angers the new me. At one point in my “former” life, I was an angel on the outside, but an enemy was on the inside. EverythingContinue reading “She’s gone”

Nothing they can do

It doesn’t matter what anyone does to try to stop your progression, set you back, or cause you to stumble. When God gets ready to bless you, there’s nothing they can do about it! Stop being afraid of what others can do to you, when there’s nothing God won’t do for you. Until next timeContinue reading “Nothing they can do”

Total waste

There’s a reason for everything, although we often question what that reason is. Day in and day out, we selflessly pour into the lives of others, and do what we feel we are called to do, yet it all seems to be in vain. We walk the fine line between trust and doubt, but latelyContinue reading “Total waste”

Too late

Have you ever sat and thought about all the wild dreams you’ve had? From being a superstar to ruling the world, you didn’t care how grandeur or unattainable they appeared, because you were set on achieving them. Nothing nobody said or did could convince you that you weren’t going to fulfill your dreams, even ifContinue reading “Too late”

Seasons change

The leaves have fallen and the trees have become bare, frail, and empty, just as you are. The vibrancy that once was, is now no more, but it’s not the trees I’m speaking of. Life’s strong winds are so powerful, that no matter which way you turn, it’s always against you. After being tossed about,Continue reading “Seasons change”

Somebody’s always listening

As a motivational speaker, I travel to various colleges and high schools speaking to disadvantaged and underrepresented students. A once impoverished student, I share the adversities and oppositions I faced, but overcame to become a success and not another statistic. It doesn’t matter how embarrassing, terrible, or difficult your story is, TELL IT! Somebody’s alwaysContinue reading “Somebody’s always listening”
