Who will tell your story?📚


My mom asked me this one day.  She encouraged me to write my thoughts out.  So in between my anxiety and depression I put the words together via my blog and journals.

Last week I discovered I had hit a milestone of 100 subscribed followers.  My heart was full of joy because that is a huge accomplishment.  I have read books about Eating Disorders, Depression, Attention Deficit Disorder, and Anxiety related to stress.  I could see myself, but not find a definite category.

It was hard to find help for my needs.  I tried not to put myself down, but at times I was very human.  My friend reminds me that I am stronger than I give myself credit for.  Who else would have put up with the challenges of a lone pregnancy.  I wish the African American in me would have said “I don’t think so…”  That was the fear of being alone and unloved.

Anxiety does that.  It makes you feel like the waste that is sent down the toilet.  It teases you making you feel like nothing.  Your not smart or worth anything it says.  Standing up to it and responding that you are worth that and more is harder than most people think.

So I am telling my story bits and pieces.  Reminding people I am not just a girl with small skills.  I am someone that is beautiful, kind, and intelligent.  I have amazing respectful manners and willing to serve when needed.

Happy in an unhappy world.🎧


This is based on the popular hit by Pharrell Williams.

When I finally got this song my life drastically changed.  In this world of weight shaming, bloody wars on terrorism, and negative hatred I just felt empty without any joy.  My mom would ask me why I would watch The Last Legion with its war theme.  What I saw was someone willing to fight for change and a reason.  We need a reason to keep going during these rough times.  We need leaders willing to stand up against the norms of society.  We need to let the light come out once again in this dark world.  Let the reporters do their job.  They are here to inform us without bias about what is really happening in the world.  It’s time a new generation stands up and say enough is enough.  We need more Macrons in the government.

This is what I needed before.  Spreading the news for those who need it now.

I change my theme yesterday.  I looked at all the themes in the showcase and wanted something versatile.  Simple yet can be used to inspire.  It had it all and my social links were intact (I checked today and gave a sigh of relief).

Although My Journey Through Life was my origins blog.  This one is my present and future.  It became my primary.  I felt guilty leaving mahaleta, but I knew she would always be a part of me.

Yes I work hard to keep up with technology.  I can’t use living off the grid as my excuse for not writing.  The WP app would look at me from my laptop asking for another chance.  When it logged in quicker than before both Ivy the iPhone and I were excited.  I saw it as a sign to not let my hopes get pushed into the pit.

I want to thank you all for the comments and feedback.  I hope to be just warming up my creative juices.

I was born in 1979 that is the edge of Disco and the verge of Retro. I grew up listening to all kinds of music thanks to my mom the music teacher. I was the rebel listening to Michael Jackson and the Motown artists. I realized that the pop industry made some mean music that made me dance and sing.

In junior high I was discovering the early hip hop and rhythm and blues singers. Dancing to Naughty by Nature’s OPP became an early like. I learned that Meredith Brooks made a girl power anthem that I learned that it went in my mind from taboo to my anthem after my divorce. Then of course there was the bubble gum pop music of boy bands and girls with a beat. Yes, I was dancing along with New Kids on The Block, Insync, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, and Christiana Aguilera.

One would not expect me to be a country fan. I might not be able to square dance or line dance with the pros, but I was giving my own moves that proved I could do it just as good. I was hooked on Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, Toby Keith, and several others that made me get to my feet.

I soon discovered that I knew more about music than most people would think. I could tell a 50’s hit from an alternative success. I recently realized I had a Little Monster in me thanks to Lady Gaga. I was one of many that music had a profound effect on our lives. Even as I write I am going through a Katy Perry phase and totally loving it. You don’t have to be just like everybody else. Be yourself and love life!
