Confidence Begins With Curiosity And Courage

Diary

My most frequently asked question from others is how do you do it (entrepreneurship success, strides, etc.). I realize now, eight years in, it’s always been confidence. The confidence to show up, willingness to learn and ultimately the ability to grow. In My 32: A Sweeter Softer Side Of Life, I wondered how exposure could have shaped my journey and the woman I am today, had my upbringing been any different from it was (it was tough).  I realize it…

My 32: a sweeter softer side of life

Diary

Last month I turned 32. I’m not quite sure how I feel about the aging thing, but one thing I do accept is the fact that it’s just a number.

Diary

After a crippling break up (a few years ago) I became obsessed with trying to love myself. Like REALLY love myself, the way I wanted to be loved by someone else.  I was in so much internal pain. Like there was a huge, gaping hole in my heart.  I posted this photo on social media with the caption “beach”. When in actuality I didn’t even want to be there, as I felt like complete shet.  Looking back, I needed the…

Who Will Revere the Black Woman?

Diary

Mark Twain said, in effect, that when a country enslaves a people, the first necessary job is to make the world feel that the people to be enslaved are sub-human. The next job is to make his fellow-countrymen believe that man is inferior and then, the unkindest cut of all is to make that man believe himself inferior. A good job has been done in this country, as far as convincing them of their inferiority is concerned. The general white…
