Heyyyyy ya'll!!! Ok, Ok...I can feel your side eyes through the computer screen. I know I have been "slippin' on my pimpin'" lately by not posting any new blogs, but your girl has been in the process of trying to "get her life" for the past few months *inserts face palm, crying face and if they had one an "I'm tired boss" emoji*...but anywho, let me catch you guys up on what's been going on with me.
#TransparentTuesday: I used to think that I was "weak" because I was always finding myself hurt by people... I would love hard and in turn hurt hard. But what I learned is that what I used to perceive as a "weakness" is really my strength.
Ok Brit-Bratters (yea, I just gave ya'll a new fan club name...I know I don't officially have a fan club yet, but hey, you got to speak somethings into existence), I'll be celebrating my 32nd birthday in less than a month...August 11th to be exact. As I continue to countdown to my birthday, I've been using this time to reflect. So I thought it was fitting that i take part in the new #LevelUp challenge inspired by R&B star Ciara and her new single, "Level Up".
Heyyyy ya'll! I know it's been a while sense I checked in, but well, you know life happens. I've been trying to get my whole entire life these past few months and that includes doing some things that I have only dreamed about in the past. One of those things is stepping out and writing my first book. If you follow me on social media then you know that a few months ago I won a writer's course with Latia Vaughan aka "The Dream Pusher". Since then I have been on this journey to write my story and to be honest with you it has required that I revisit some memories and emotions that I had buried or thought I had left in the past, but I keep pressing forward writing because I believe that not only will this book be therapeutic for me, but it will also bring healing to so many others around the world. So I invite you all to ride along with me on this journey! Prayerfully, the book will be finished and published by early 2019. Until then, stay posted to my website for updates along the way!
Love ya'll like bad kids love Hot Cheetos,
#IAMLEAH Pt. 1 -#Iam a part of a blended family- "how god took my broken pieces and blended them into a beautiful family"
For those that don't know, I am in the process of planning a relaunch event for my non-profit organization The LEAH Project. After a recent conversation with some close friends about ideas that we had for the event, one of my friends came up with the hashtag #IAMLEAH. As soon as she said it, the wheels in my head began turning as I thought of the many ways that Leah is like myself and so many women today. So I decided to write some posts dedicated specifically to #IAMLEAH and the ways that her life has often paralleled mine along with the lessons that I have learned.
