You sit back and think, I thought we were close? Yea, tragic! Close can mean so many things,Continue reading “Are we close?”

His Sweet Aroma

Once upon a time, back when outside was open Asantee went to get massages periodically. As she reminisce on the memories of how therapeutic massages are, she remembers a moment she had with God.

Be a vessel!

I was looking at this job all wrong. I had crazy moments already, I’ve cried, almost threw up, checked a few PCA’s and then some. I came home minding my business and God said you’re looking at it wrong.

The Box

I have a theory that has been proven right but I’m going to test it one more time.

5 Jobs in 6 Months

I always say take the job that gives you more until you are at the job that gives you everything. My journey has been just that.

Carter Jaxon

World, let me introduce my second nephew Carter Jaxon. My little boota-butt, he was a complete surprise. When he was cooking, I wasn’t sure if I had enough love for him and his brother. I loved Chris so much I asked how can this be shared? I didn’t get when a few first time momsContinue reading “Carter Jaxon”

New York City

Moving back to NYC has been such a great decision but I miss my peoples. I’m so use to coming home to my boys and sitting with my mom and sister talking about our days. No matter where I was working and what time I came home they waited for me. I have been throughContinue reading “New York City”

New Job Who This

I was nervous about taking this new job. Leaving a set pay to rely on my performance is different but the opportunity is out of this world.

One of My Kind

For years I felt like I never fit in. Not in the sense of no one likes me but no one like me. Starting from running track at the age of 5, I was the only one who ran long distance. To groups in church, I was the oldest. In networking events I was theContinue reading “One of My Kind”

What am I doing!?

I will sit for hours watching someone else success story on social media or YouTube but don’t take the time to work on my own. Why is that? Kinda the same with watching sermons on YouTube, which I do often and nothing is wrong with that but… why not learn for myself by reading theContinue reading “What am I doing!?”

Sis told me I’m in the nationals preparing to run the 800 meter race and better not jump the gun. Going through this feeling of not wanting to work for man anymore, be in my career, graduated with multiply degrees gets frustrating because I’m not there right now. It makes me not want to doContinue reading “Sis”

Don’t just accept what is given but wait for what is promised.

Peace, joy and love be with you throughout your day.

Don’t prepare for the season you’re in now. ~Asantee~

Are you in or out?

When I was younger, I use to run long distance in track and field and cross country. Cross country is different but was a pretty cool experience. Looking back at that adventure made me realize some things now in my life. My family was there from the beginning during my race,  three different stages ofContinue reading “Are you in or out?”

June 25th

June 25th is my oldest brothers birthday. And honestly I forgot. I knew that date meant something to me, like an internal alarm clock set yearly. It wasn’t until the end of my day when I realized. Big bro would’ve been 28, 7 years without him. So I asked myself, how could I forget suchContinue reading “June 25th”

September 16

September 16 was the day I was born. I do thank my mom for choosing to give me life. Having me while in college is a bold decision. My mother stayed strong and a raised a one of a kind Queen. I gave this woman hell growing up but she still took that nail andContinue reading “September 16”

“Calling me at 12:47 at night, while I’m watching the fight, looking at my phone it’s no name in sight…”

So who hit my phone? My best friend, she wanted to tell me about how her day went and I had a story to tell her about my future husband. Her name was not in sight because I don’t call her by her birth name and she has emojis to represent who she is toContinue reading ““Calling me at 12:47 at night, while I’m watching the fight, looking at my phone it’s no name in sight…””

Thank you for all who participated… Continuing from our post last week, I asked what do you think happened after I went to the bathroom to clear my head. Some people said… “Smack the Holy Ghost out of them, I’m too nice to go off so I said congratulations and walked away, told them theyContinue reading “Church Hurt !

Church Hurt

I could not sleep the other day, literally stayed up until 4 am writing. Let me tell you this story. I love to dance, miming is one of my many passions. I’ve done all types of dancing but haven’t in awhile and wanted to get back into it. I asked the dance leader if IContinue reading “Church Hurt”

Reset my program

The other night I realized something, I was shown that I’m thirsty. Thirsty for the Lord. I felt the need to reset myself. God gave me an image of when your phone starts acting up and you reset it, or if you changed a setting and you didn’t like it, you press that button thatContinue reading “Reset my program”


I was doing my devotional one morning. Luke 21:19. “Stand firm, and you will win life.” I read the whole chapter to get the main idea of this verse and then prayed about it. I prayed that God stand with me in Him because I could stand firm with Him and not know what thatContinue reading “Devotional”

My coworker laughs and says that’sContinue reading “News flash”

My elementary best friend never left, 7th grade best friend is my heart, 8th grade best friend is my personal trainer,Continue reading “That one friend”

Councilman Pete Smith

The day I interviewed Councilman Pete Smith, everything that could possible go wrong, went wrong! I had a section set out for the interview in a public area. A family of 3 toddlers and a new born decided to sit next to me. The second spot was great but it was right under the speakers,Continue reading “Councilman Pete Smith”

My Big baby

They say surround yourself with like minded people. Be around people who want to see you win and don’t be the smartest person in the room. I can say that I am! See I thought the only way that was true was if it came in the form of the people you see everyday, bestContinue reading “My Big baby”

Dear Husband,

Dear Husband,  As of today, I am a mess. I can’t cook yet, my house is not always clean. I’m improving on time management. My hair may be a mess some days. If an opportunity comes, I may throw some sweats on and a hoodie with my hair still braided up and run to Walmart.Continue reading “Dear Husband,”

Daddy Issues.

In church, we talked about Gentleness. How you should treat people with care.  “Gentleness is for fragile people. Sorry doesn’t help fragile people because you didn’t break them. Because you didn’t break them, you can’t fix them. Some people are broken when they come into our lives.” Now this is just a very brief partContinue reading “Daddy Issues.”

Is it to early in the semester to have a mental break down?

So I had a mini mental break down yesterday.  With school starting, trying to get ahead with my blog, doing interviews and preparing for future ideas. Planning a baby shower and getting prepared to welcome my nephew into this world. Working, jungle internships and work study. Learning to be a better me everyday, a strongerContinue reading “Is it to early in the semester to have a mental break down?”

Story Time

I have a routine where I watch a sermon at night, every night. Sometimes mornings depending on how I feel.  If I’m in the mood to worship or am I hungry for something.

“Girl, if you don’t go out on a date with him and get that free food.”

Dating- go out with. My version of dating- going on dates to get to know someone. Some people version of dating- being together, in a relationship. I have learned to enjoy just dating. No, not for the free food, or the free adventures.  But because I literally learn something new about me. It can beContinue reading ““Girl, if you don’t go out on a date with him and get that free food.””
