As a therapist, I hear a variety of things from all kinds of individuals. My friends and family consult me about everything. This year I have heard several times that people are ready for this year to end. Recently, someone told me they regret a lot of the decisions they made. Personally, 2016 started out a little rocky, but after MLK weekend I evaluated a few things and decided I did not want to deal with some of the things I have entertained in the past. I didn’t want to… Read More »December 2016……Finale……..4th quarter
Each year our birthday comes around & we began reminiscing about the past, the ups & down, and relationships that ended and began. This year has been about change, growth, heartbreak, closing and starting new chapters, and discovering what I truly deserve but not knowing and being fearful of what the future holds. I will admit, it can be scary when you come face to face with our reality that we are in a place we don’t want to be in anymore. That can be a feeling or a situation.… Read More »🎂🍸34…………………the year of NO & growth!
This morning I was reading my daily word before starting my day at work. I haven’t blogged in a few months because I have been busy enjoying life. Before I went to bed last night I thought I am exhausted and I have to be at work in the morning, but I glanced over and I felt a great feeling coursing through my veins. I felt happiness, love, peace, and excitement about a lot of things and what the future holds. My patients ask me all the time “How do… Read More »Happiness
(TGIPF) This morning I was listening to Fantasia “Bump what your friends say” and the song made me think about a lot of things. If you are feeling confused, alone, unsure of what to do next, go back to a place you can trust—– your heart. In matters of work, money, love, go back to your heart. Are you unsure of the map, uncertain of the next step on your journey, or wondering how to untangle the mess of a broken heart? The answers are not in your head, it’s… Read More »Daily Inspiration
I am learning to give but not allow myself to be used. It is important to love but do not allow your heart to be abused. Trust but don’t be naive. Listen to others, but don’t lose your own voice.
Happy Hump Day: When we relinquish control of our lives to someone else, we also relinquish responsibility for our happiness, our well-being, our growth, and our choices. It’s healthy to want to be nurtured by someone. I admit when I am not feeling 100 it’s something I need. A significant other can make our lives easier. We are sent helpers, friends, and lovers. I am learning the difference between receiving help and support and being controlled. There’s a difference to surrendering to love and surrendering to control.

A lot of my friends near and far have experienced heartbreak within the past few months. My advice is that before you invest your feelings please take time to talk and make sure you are on the same page with the person you are dating. Sometimes what we cling to tightest is what we most desperately need to let go. Heartbreak can be a prerequisite for fulfillment. I know what it is like to have my heartbroken. I know we can’t rush healing, but we can welcome it.
I am learning to have patience with all things, and especially with myself. Self-reflection holds a key to unlocking the door and our eyes to new beginnings of awareness. Take a few moments before it becomes a lifetime of regrets, but do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections. Life is not a race but indeed it is a journey. Love your life, and what you‘ve been given, it is not accidental. Learn to laugh, forgive, and appreciate the little things in life. Some of the best things in… Read More »Daily Inspiration
This past weekend was full of unexpected events from delayed flights and dealing with various people. One of the highlights of my weekend was reconnecting with some friends and cultivating some new friendships. One of the gems that I learned this past weekend is to be aware of the energy around you. Pay attention to, choose carefully, those with whom you live, love, eat, and travel. There may be times when you can handle their energy and times it isn’t right for you. Sometimes, when we‘re feeling off balance, it… Read More »Daily Inspiration
The past two nights I have been talking with someone about pain, hurt, love, and how to heal from your past. Yes, we all have been hurt and have walls built up but it is important to open your hear to the universe. Let it bring you love and comfort. Let it bring you healing. Let it take you back to your past long enough to heal, so you can move into your joy.
