Witnessing Strength

On September 28, 2018 my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer...Something so common nowadays, still I would never expect it to hit home as close as it did. On September 28th, she asked for me and my brothers to come over. Not thinking anything of it, we went to chill with her. She told us she went in for a normal routine exam to find out she has Stage 2 Breast Cancer. I watched her choke on her words as she put on this front trying not to get emotional in front of us.

Counting My Blessings

Lately, my life has been taking multiple turns in different directions. I've become so overwhelmed with the things that are going on around me, I now have a permanent knot that lives inside my stomach. It is funny how life works. All summer I was in a great place, financially, emotionally, physically, and mentally. I was eager to launch my business and finally bring my visions to light. It is funny how life works. When summer ends that means a new season has begun. New problems and new opportunities. It is funny how life works. Here I am months later with a different grasp on life wondering what's in store for me in the future. Just two weeks after the...
