Okay, let’s have an honest conversation. Many of us choose to remain neutral because it is much easier not to ruffle someone else feathers with our point of view. We sometimes believe that being silent will make an issue go away. However, being quiet does the complete opposite. Being silent often communicates that we do not have an opinion and that we are cool with what is happening to us and or around us. The issue never goes away when we are on the fence about sharing how we truly feel. Sometimes showing no active emotional involvement will allow a problem to keep growing until we put a stop to it by speaking up and sharing our thoughts.Continue reading

Power your year the whole year through.
Happy New Year!
Exciting times are upon us. Entering a new year brings forth inspiration, motivation, and self-empowerment. Here is our chance to leave the past behind and embrace a fresh start. It’s what we do in the new year right? We make plans to set goals to establish new beginnings through our resolutions. Which is often the charge we need to reset our battery packs as we hope to evolve in the next year ahead. Some people write out their goals for the year. Then there are others like myself who choose to create a vision board as a symbol of a lifestyle makeover.Continue reading
The year 2018 was an adventure. The launch and release of my book Coming Of Age: The Easy Guide to Healthy Hair Care for Teens was indeed a life-changing experience. Every time I hold my book in my hand, I remember the entire writing process from start to finish. Thoughts that began in my head manifested outwardly in the physical on January 6, 2018. Amazon total sales were 216 copies, and 180 books sold live between the following events such as my book signing on February 25, Healthy Hair & Style Workshops for Teens, Shorty & Duwop Kids Hair Symposium on September 2, and The Back to Fun Book Fair on November 24. Not to mention some of the random book sales that happened in my children’s hair studio. How can I not enjoy working for myself? I’ve never felt this empowered in all my life. I know without a doubt that I can do anything I set my mind to do. Continue reading
Building Meaning Relationships With My Children Individually.
Creating A Positive Atmosphere In My Home.
I have been on a quest for creating balance in my life. Lately, I have been so tired. Managing my business Chi Chi Sophistication Kids Natural Hair Studio has been taking up a considerable chunk of my time. Unless you are a hairstylist, most people do not know how taxing styling hair can be on the mind and body as well as always being available to continually servicing someone else needs. My career isn’t going away anytime soon, so I began looking for ways to be intentional about, creating a more favorable environment for my family and me.

None of us are exempt from life experiences getting us down. Too many stressors from our daily responsibilities have the potential to make us snappy towards people or situations that do not have any immediate connection to the source of irritation. The pressure of having too much on our plates can sometimes make life unbearable, which is often advised by experts to take mental breaks from situations that do not bring out the best in us to ensure we are not making life-changing decisions emotionally.

When Your Plans Fail Yet The Outcome Remains The Same.
In the year 2010, I enrolled in The Writer’s Institute Of Children’s Literature. The online writing course filled my heart with so much joy. I learned so much about children’s literature. Completing my assignments was a breeze. I felt like I was beginning to move in the right direction because I’ve always wanted to become a writer. But after seven months, all that comes to a screeching halt! My dream was placed on the back burner because I could no longer afford the writing classes. I had to do what was necessary to stabilize my circumstances financially. I can remember during that time, my future seemed so far away. My conditions seem so much bigger than my goals, I really couldn’t see past my circumstances. So for an extended period of time, I felt stuck. And in feeling stuck, I became extremely depressed.
