Beatdowns + Bifocals As Lessons in Self-Expression

Beatdowns + Bifocals As Lessons in Self-Expression

When I was 8 and in Grade 3 of primary school, a skinny, loud girl named Stacy hit me in the face and punched me in the stomach on our way home. I didn’t hit her back, and I have no idea why. I just went home and told my grandmother about the unprovoked attack. ...
Stillness as a Simple Spiritual Practice

Stillness as a Simple Spiritual Practice

Stillness is sometimes the best response to something that feels like a disappointment. Case in point…True story. Happened today. Totally a spiritual experience. It rains here in Jamaica. Often. We’re on a tropical island, and the richness of the greens, browns,...
Moving past shame with presence and purpose

Moving past shame with presence and purpose

However shame comes into our lives, its presence is almost never ignorable. And thankfully, it is also rarely ever a long-term feeling. I can recall a particularly heavy experience I had with Shame. I didn’t know it back then, but that experience was an integral part of my transition into womanhood. It was the first time I recall ever consciously deciding that I needed to “fix” something about myself.

Important Reasons To Respect Our Children

Important Reasons To Respect Our Children

The comments on this article I wrote for EverydayFeminism.com brought so much light and exploration to me, that I’m posting it here for you as well. The article addresses the need for respect and appreciation for the young people who live with us and call us Mom...
Join the 20-Day Spiritual Self-care Challenge

Join the 20-Day Spiritual Self-care Challenge

If you join us, you’ll have a chance to share your spiritual goal and explore some options for what activities you want to use (because I’ll be giving you several examples) to help you explore your own spirituality and create some practices to support your spiritual growth.

Each day for the 20 days, I’ll post a video or an audio lecture inside my Simple Spirituality course, which is already live and poppin’ on Udemy. The course is already filled with activities and prompts for simple ways to explore your spirituality. You can pick from over 30 lectures of options, and you can also bring your own spiritual practices to the table as options for you. It’s all about whatever God has placed within you to explore, express, or reclaim.

Self-Care Activities To Help You Own Your Spirituality

Self-Care Activities To Help You Own Your Spirituality

We’ve got to decide that our spirituality, our connection to God-Self, is worth working on in proactive, intentional, consistent ways. I wrote a book about what that practice looks like for me, and I’m publishing it this Spring. But before I release the book, I wanted to offer the information in ways that allowed for guided exploration and plenty of space for your own intuition. If you crave spiritual confidence, and want some ideas for expanding your current arsenal of spiritual strengtheners, you’ll find the rituals and ideas in this course incredibly useful.

A Love Story About Bios and Women

A Love Story About Bios and Women

Fair warning though–this is the kind of love story that has action items at the end. If you just want to feel good and hear a story about women appreciating and supporting each other’s brilliance, that’s sprinkled in there too. But this story is...
Kendrick Lamar, Sa-Roc, and Messages in the Music

Kendrick Lamar, Sa-Roc, and Messages in the Music

The issue as I see it, is not the artist’s choice of self-expression, it’s our tendency to rely on someone else to tell us what’s hot and what’s not. Listen with your whole self, and by all means, get down to whatever feels good. But if you’re like me and you crave deep and dope, artistry in music, and lyrics from people you’d actually want to have a conversation with, don’t look to the radio, search for yourself, and share with the world.

A Small Victory Based On Writing Better Bios

Come Join This 3-Point Spirituality Challenge

God, for me, is both personal and simple. Simple spirituality is what I craved for years, and I craved that in a deeply personal way. Though faith-centered group fellowship can be a fortifying part of exploring God, it is an option, not a requirement. It feels almost...

On Being More Writer than Warrior

On Being More Writer than Warrior

I’m in my flow. I even hear different things that I normally hear. I mean, it’s like I listen differently now. I hear a voice in my mind that clarifies all the words and ideas that come in. It’s like I have a translator for what I hear, and what that means in terms of my writing and my life. I feel spiritually strong.

Trust the process. Sounds all zen-like and flowy, doesn’t it? It’s the sort of thing you want to be able to say with conviction because it’s brimming with useful life lesson, nam-myoho-renge-kyo type energy, right? But it’s also that lifestyle wisdom that...

[Audio] Self-Expression and Emotional Wellness In Light of Tragedy

[Audio] Self-Expression and Emotional Wellness In Light of Tragedy

Yes, this is about the incredibly unjust Mike Brown decision. It is in fact about police officer, Darren Wilson, not being indicted after murdering a young black boy in public. We are angry, and thankfully, we are inspired toward creating a different experience. I’m sharing this recording as a reminder of the importance of self-care and self-love in light of major tragedy.

3 Self-Care Truths to Fuel Your Week

3 Self-Care Truths to Fuel Your Week

Your You-ness is divine, and your ability to nurture that You-ness is one that requires attention, intention, and consistency. Self-Love need not be a reaction to a pain point in your life. Choose to pay more attention to yourself and your own needs; Mondays are great for re-setting powerful intentions like these.

Self. Intention. Attention: That’s the Trinity I serve, and it’s the Trinity that serves me. I am a believer. And my belief stems from a place of love, soul, and gratitude. I do not believe in the notion that I was born a sinner, or bad, or wrong. I do not...
