OOTD: Simple & Clean

We explored our local and neighboring cities this week to enjoy what it had to offer. That pathway we usually drive by and leave behind? We stopped to take a stroll on it. The coffee shop we usually drive through for coffee? We sat to enjoy a cup in it. That Guitar Center we pass by? We visited and…

Stroke Facts

It breaks my heart to find out that a friend just passed away. A stroke can happen to anyone, of any age, and of any gender. She was too young.  I miss your silliness H! You gave so much comfort to parents of stroke victims, those who have gone through a stroke, and EVERYBODY who…

Here’s the thing about life… it doesn’t matter who you are and where you’ve been, it forces us to constantly choose a path that directs our current and future situations.

Rearview Mirror

It’s been one heck of a week. For the last few days, I’ve experienced a constant dull headache, pressure, and disorientation. Yesterday was the worse. A migraine wanted to also make it on the list of symptoms. Through all of this, I was mom, wife, and worked my part time job. This isn’t normal. This…

Over The Top

Reflection: Final Point Over the top, I’ve heard this phrase used often enough. Some use it to criticized others or to poke fun at something we don’t understand. Sometimes, it’s a way for us to boast about our inner diva(ness) or princely attributes… “That person is soooo over the top.” “She is so EXTRA.” “Too…

Honestly, Faking It

Reflection Part II: Crossroads I find that it’s easy to fall victim to our own delusions, fake our way through life by brushing things off and thinking that EVERYTHING IS OKAY. But, how do we move forward and live positively if we don’t know how to look at the tough situations for what they are?…
