Dear Sis,

I'll be honest with you... I had no idea what to write about. 


Usually, I have at least an inkling of what my topic will be before I sit down to type. But, this time????... Nope. Not one single ounce of inspiration. 


I find myself in this space more often than...

Dear Sis, 


Auntie "O" said it best: 


"You can have it all -- just not all at once." - Oprah Winfrey


That quote has always given me pause. Why can't one person have it all?? 


My ambition likes to think it is totally possible to have everything your heart desires all at...

Dear Sis, 

Do you watch "This is Us"?


I sure hope you do because it's one of the best shows on television! 


And, if you don't -- get your WHOLE life!  

"This is Us" is one of my all-time favorites! Yes -- I cry during just about every episode, and yes -- I love it! 


Well...

Dear Sis, 


I have a Superpower. 


I didn't inherit it. It blossomed over time. 


In fact -- I didn't even know I had it buried within me. 


It took years to bloom, and a ton of frustration to bring it out of me. But now, I use it every chance I get. 


I call it the Power o...

Dear Sis, 


I've never been a person to do things "just because". 


I call myself a "sentimental do-er". Everything I do stems from some sort of affection. 


For instance, I love to write and I love people. So -- I'm a journalist. I knew that I could use my innate skills...

Dear Sis, 


I had 45 minutes to spare. 


That meant less than an hour to blow dry and maintain my hair, put on makeup, pull together an outfit and make an on-time arrival to a fundraiser for a cause very close to my heart. 


"Ok, girl", I told myself. "HURRY UP!!"

Dear Sis, 

Have you ever sat back and asked yourself, “what does it REALLY mean to be the bigger person??” 

It’s the age old cliche that every parent has taught, and every child has heard —  yet few take the time to really analyze or explain what it means.

Dear Sis, 


When I look at the photo above -- all I see is insecurity. 


It was taken a few days after Christmas, and I had happily spent the days prior eating whatever I wanted! Therefore,  I felt fat and super uncomfortable. 


It probably took a hundred takes...

Dear Sis,


The other day, I came across a post by Sarah Jakes Roberts on Instagram. 


It was a simple photo of her and her husband in the kitchen. No glam... just them. 


The first sentence of her lengthy caption read: "All she ever wanted was to be this beautiful combina...

Dear Sis, 

I’ll be honest with you — I’m having a severe case of writers’ block. 


Usually, I know a couple days in advance which topic I’ll write about. That’s because the subject is  often the result of a personal “ah-ha” experience, or a thought-provoking conversation...
