  • Darkness to Light Part:6

    “Shame on him the first time, shame on me the second time.” “You’ve made your bed, Now lay in it.” Oh man those are quotes that are fun to say but awful to live. I had now burned bridges I couldn’t afford to burn, and his manipulation had worked once again. Y’all I could literally […]

  • Darkness to Light Part:5

    Darkness isn’t just a word that describes night. It is an emotion or state of mind that becomes so heavy, it engulfs your entire existence. It is the feeling of laying under a slab of concrete where no makeup, baggy clothes, a warm bed and no sunlight feel most comfortable. A feeling of wanting to […]

  • Darness to Light Part:4

    When Joshua and I got divorced, I had already applied for the dental hygiene program and I had to finish my chemistry class and I would have been done with pre-reqs required for the program. I had started college when Jadyn was born, and I was a very good student. I think it shocked all […]

  • Rejection

    Raising daughters, especially teenage daughters, I have concluded that the insecurities from rejection don’t change much over the years. Maybe it’s a plunging attempt to feel forever young that I imagine our lives to be quite the same. I log onto Facebook and Instagram to see a bunch of selfies with filters that can make […]

  • Fear

    Fear! As I boarded my flight this morning leaving out of Atlanta, fear would’ve been the best and only word to describe my current situation! You’re putting yourself into a large metal vessel that weighs thousands of pounds, knowing full well it’s going to lift itself into the air and you’re counting on a pilot […]

  • Take the Journey

    Life is a journey. One that somedays looks like a nice Sunday stroll through the gorgeous mountains of Colorado. Then other times like a high-speed chase through the slums of Detroit. Wherever I meet you at today, I am so glad you came. I am a simple girl with a complex past that has led […]
