Disappointment is part of the journey

I haven’t written here in a while (last blog post was five Sundays ago to be exact… my apologies for that.) Sometimes, life tends to get in the way and you have to find/make time to get things done again. So here I am…technically Monday morning making time for what matters most to me: my writing….

If you want cake..Get up and go get it !!!

“That’s my new motto” I told my cousin via iMessage today as I gladly cut into my Kiss Chocolate truffle cake. Though literal, “getting my own damn cake” is now a microcosm of how I live my life and my own sweet little motivation. Let me explain: About a week ago (now let’s try to…

Wanderlust

Do you remember that game we used to play as kids where the goal/intention was to predict one’s future. For the past two decades though I could have sworn the name of the game was “Life”. Apparently its called MASH (thanks Google for making me question everything about my childhood now lol) To jog your…

Who helped me at 2am?

At twenty (20), an age when most young adults are trying to figure out who they are, my mother gave birth to me. I grew up as an only child, being raised by a single-parent. My mother was a young black woman from a huge poor family. She had thirteen (13) brothers and seven (7)…

30 Reasons to Watch Fifty Shades of Grey

The much anticipated day had finally arrived – Saturday 14th February, 2015 was here! I woke up early enough to take my morning jog, had my cup of Twinings English Breakfast Tea, and though that was enough to satisfy me because my stomach was already full with excitement, I still had an egg white omelet…

Define yourself

At age eleven, my first year in high school a girl called me eccentric. Back then I didn’t fully understand the meaning of the word. I felt offended and was hesitant to speak to her again. Fast forward to August 2014, age twenty-three, while in the kitchen talking to my dad one Saturday morning he…

Dear Heart

Dear heart Two of the saddest things you’ve had to experience is losing loved ones and watching the one you love love someone else. Though shattered, you’ve been able to heal past the pain. I know it doesn’t happen over night, you’re a work in progress. Though bitter sweet, the things you’ve endured will always…

Don’t stop Dreaming!

Happiness to me means waking up in my Manhattan apartment, having Starbucks for breakfast, going to work for a global media company, spending time alone at Central Park, visiting museums, frequently attending Broadway plays, being inspired by the daily happenings of New York City and writing novels about love and life.
