Taking Back My Power To Appreciate Life.

Recovering from Depression.

The blog post entitled; Depression: I Can’t Fake The Funk, was a glimpse into what was happening inside my world that triggered a brief battle with depression. Today I am grateful to be free enough to share my thoughts and be more transparent about what was happening. After having a successful surgery in May of 2020, my beautiful mother was diagnosed with cancer. A devastating blow is seriously an understatement; my heart broke into tiny pieces. The thought of losing my mom became an emotional warzone. I felt I did not have the supplies to defeat the unsettling sadness in my soul. Grief covered me and completely took over my entire being on every level, so much so I felt like I couldn’t function mentally.

The Power To Evolve Is In Your Hands.

Take Back YOUR Power To Be Yourself.

Have you ever observed your emotions when you find out your character’s picture painted is not true? What do you say when your name is under attack? How does it feel when someone is perpetuating a lie about who you are to their friends and family? Sit and feel those emotions because how you are feeling is real. Anger is a natural emotion every human being has built inside the fabric of our humanity. Do not suppress your feelings. It is healthy to acknowledge the fact that the actions against you have made you upset.

Why I Choose to Build a Beautiful Love Life with Myself?

Happy New Year! Halfway through the month.

Let me reintroduce myself. My name is Keianna Johnson. I am a woman who wears many hats in many colors. My husband and our children are the veins that lead the blood to my heart. I am a family; first, family always kind of person. My real friendships keep me grounded and vice versa — a fair exchange. I got loyalty inside my DNA ~in my Kendric Lamar voice. I enjoy my career as an award-winning children’s textured hairstylist and author of the book, Coming of Age: The Easy Guide to Healthy Hair Care for Teens. None of the above wouldn’t be possible without The Messiah from where all my blessings flow. I live well because I keep the four components of my life simplified: God, Family, Friends, and Career.

5 Reasons Why Misplaced Anger is Destroying Our Relationships.

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.

How To Stay Focus When Everything Seem To Be Going Wrong?

#ProtectingYourPeace #SelfCare

None of us are oblivious to being disappointed. Excuse my French, but shit happens. Even while trying to do all the right things, sometimes conflict seems to come out of nowhere. That’s life right? Although life happens, most of us are taught to make lemonade out of the sour lemons that have been tossed in our direction. And yes that sounds sweet, but what about the feelings of sadness, anger, confusion, and lack of trust deriving from the situations we sometimes find ourselves associated? The recipe for developing pink lemonade doesn’t sound as easy to create? Continue reading

Self-Care Sunday: A Day At The Beach.

A time to disconnect from work to reconnect with family while relaxing.

Summer 2016, I was so engrossed in my work that I didn’t create a chance to take my children on vacation. Looking back, I feel bad because I spent the majority of that summer providing hair care services to my clients instead of allowing parts of the season to be fun for my kids. The only fun my children had that summer was the occasional bouncing between house to house of family and friends to attend cookouts. I vowed to never ever do that again. So in 2017, I did something different. I created summer time business hours so that my family and I could spend time alone and enjoy our summer. Ocean City Maryland is one of our favorite beaches. It is Three hours away from home which makes it all the more perfect for a mini family trip. Here’s how I decided to spend Sunday with my family. Continue reading
