I’m not worried about the pain. I’m not worried about the added responsibility. I’m not even worried about the sleepless nights.

A letter to my cousin: Enjoy your 16 year old’s birthday – You did it!

Dear Cousin,

I know things are really crazy right now. You’re probably trying to make sure everyone is dressed, has what they need, looks great & feels great. You’re prepping your little girl making sure her hair, makeup and dress are just as perfect as she envisioned. You’re wondering if the DJ will be there on time, if the venue will be perfectly decorated and if all the guests will commit to their replies.  Continue reading “A letter to my cousin: Enjoy your 16 year old’s birthday – You did it!”

A letter to my partner: When a loved friend dies

The footprints that we leave in each others’ journey are all that really and truly matters. We can build successful businesses, we can aspire to be the world’s greatest, we can create empires that rule the worlds, but in the end…all we truly have are the people around us. All we truly have are the memories we create with each other. All that we truly and sincerely have is the Love that we share.

A letter to all Mothers: Not every Super Hero wears a cape

Not every Super Hero wears a cape.

Most of them wear messy pony tails and shirts with dirty hand prints. A lot of them wear jeans that never have enough pockets. And She almost always has stains from taking a knee in effort for Her to regain a little strength so that She can walk tall again. Most of them wear …

A letter to my Daughter: Happy 9th Birthday

A letter to my Daughter. Because you are a big deal. Happy 9th Birthday.

April 24, 2015

My Queena,

We were getting ready to go out for the day, the 3 of us were by the door wondering where you were, as usual… So, I marched to your room about to hurry you, and instead, I stopped and admired what you were into. I witnessed the care you were taking in dressing your doll. You carefully put on her jacket, and slipped on her shoes. You patted down her hair, curled her under your arm.. and then you did the thing that made me smile the most today.. you kissed her and said “Let’s go.”

You are still my little girl… and it was at that moment that I was reminded… how amazing you are.

A letter to me: Never. Give. Up. Happy Belated Birthday

A letter to me… Never. Give. Up. Happy Belated Birthday…

And so this morning I ran, not far, not for long, but I ran nonetheless. And it’s been a while since my last run. But with this detox and re-adjustment of eating, exercising regularly [something I have not been doing] is a must. Today’s run was different. I don’t know why… But it was hard. Extremely hard. The first few blocks were torture.  And my mind was screaming with fkn bullshit “It’s cold. You didn’t stretch long enough. Your sneakers aren’t tied on tight enough. Are you warm? It’s too late to run. Look at the 102 yr old man running harder than you. You have to use the bathroom. You should just go back home and try this another time. What are you cooking for Thanksgiving? Did you pay the phone bills? Joe isn’t here to push you on. How are you going to do this ALL ALONE?”… OMG
