My single hope is that no woman of any age has to live with shame, bullying, self-loathing or anything less than the ability to live in her own greatness. To do this we need to remember one word “courage” – live it, breathe it! At all times we should keep in mind that we always need to have the… Read More
Discovering Me! Discovering You!
In this category, I think it is important for you to know something about me such as who I am, what has been my journey and how I made the decision to start this blog. I want to share the journey I have traveled so far and how I came to be the me that I know and love today. I find it extremely exciting and invigorating to meet other women and learn their stories. This section will share the stories of our lives – not just mine. It is not that I think my life’s story has been so different than millions of other women out there but it may be just different enough that someone will read it and find comfort or inspiration in the “sameness” or just see it as inspiration to look at your own journey and how you became the wonderful you that you are today. I hope that other women want to share their stories as well.
Each day is a new opportunity to learn something new. It can be a new word, a new recipe, a new language – every day in every way we are learning. Maybe we are coping with the loss of a job or a loved one, dealing with a serious illness, helping our children or something that impacts the way our lives used to be and is now forcing us to learn to make the most of our lives as they are in our new reality. Maybe we have entered a new phase of life like retirement, parenthood, returning to school to pursue another degree, taking a dance class or swim lessons. Every day in every way we can learn and embrace something new. Together we can keep learning!

In her book “Age Is Nothing But A State of Mind” Suzy Toronto said ” . . . when you change nothing, nothing will change. But with a new attitude, you can really make a difference.” This is not profound. In fact. it is simple but sometimes we need to see it in writing to make the light come on… Read More
“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” * To be perfect an object has to be measured against another object. You realize I said “object” not a person. A circle can be perfect. A square can be perfect. Inanimate… Read More
Oh! You probably think this is going to be the same conversation that goes on when black women talk about “hair.” Should you straighten it or wear it natural? Should it be curly or wavy? Extensions or wigs? Weaves? Twists or braids? Women have so many options and can choose any of these styles on any given day. The hair… Read More
