THE GOD INSIDE OF YOU: WHAT IF GOD IS MORE YOU THAN YOU THINK

“I believe because he is I and I am him.” As a child growing up, I lived in a household where my mother practiced the Christian faith. She would always keep some reminder of her Christian faith around the house. Whether it was her Chicken Soup for the Soul books or a carpet/runner on the floor monogrammed which stated, “As for me and my house, we serve the Lord.” And growing up for me,that is all I knew in life.Read more

MENTAL HISTORY: WHY YOUR INSTABILITY TODAY COULD BE PREEXISTING

“Fixing the mind starts with the history not the treatment.” When I was a child growing up, I never thought of myself as mentally unstable. Yet when I became an adult, I attended therapy at one point and time. Now, that doesn’t mean I’m crazy, but that is the label associated with going to a therapist. And once I attended, I always thought that maybe something was stemming from childhood that brought me to this point. Because the point betweenRead more

FREE LOVE: HOW WOMEN’S RATIONALIZATION FOR MONOGAMY CAN HURT THEM

“You’re not worth it, yet I’ll still engage.” When observing women in relationships, I have taken notice to certain ways in which women have communicated the men they choose. And I have to say at times, when I hear the logic for why women talk to certain men, it is rather disturbing. And the reason I say disturbing is because you always hear women speak about not being able to find a good man. Yet the rationale for how womenRead more

AGE OF DEPRESSION: HOW THE MORE WE UNDERSTAND SELF THE MORE UNHAPPY WE BECOME

“In an era of technology, we are more connected, yet very much detached.” In a world where we are more connected than anytime before, you would think it would make us happier. Yet it has not only made us happier, but the more we learn and understand ourselves the more depressed we become. And I don’t mean know ourselves like knowing me as an adult. I mean knowing us is it pertains to our existence on Earth. You would thinkRead more

LAWS OF ATTRACTION: HOW PEOPLE ENTERING YOUR LIFE SPEAKS VOLUMES TO WHO YOU ARE

“You tend attract to you what lies inside of you¬†unbeknownst¬†to you.” The laws of attraction are quite real and we all have experienced this in life. We attract like energy and we also open ourselves up the the positive or negative energy that is out in the universe. We experience this a number of ways: through trying to find monogamous relationships, friendships, having random conversations, and/or our daily work environments. The way we attract people into our lives says aRead more

GETTING THROUGH THE DAY: HOW SOME DAYS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS

“Everyone has them, very few don’t.” We have all had those days where we are feeling depressed or some other form of sorrow. It usually starts at the beginning of the day, and last throughout the day. Other times it seems to come out of nowhere without warning; onset depression. You wonder why does this happen, and how do you cure yourself of such feelings. Most of all, you want to know when will it stop and go away. WhatRead more

NEGATIVE THOUGHTS: HOW DO THEY CREEP INTO THE MIND

“Why do we let intrusive thoughts into our minds?” It happens to us all, even someone as motivating as myself. We allow certain intrusive thoughts into our heads because these are generally feelings that haunt us in the back of our minds anyways. They are thoughts that sometimes we really want to say or do, yet we don’t act on them. Why, because unlike animals in the wild, we are endowed with a conscious that allows us to make rationalRead more

WHEN THE MACHINE BREAKS: IS AMERICA ON THE VERGE OF A REVOLUTION

Even the United States government have been going after President Trump. In addition to all this, Trump’s constituency is still going strong. Now, with all that’s said, is America headed for some form of a revolution. I have never seen Americans this on edge regarding a US president inRead more

TO BELIEVE OR NOT TO BELIEVE: CHALLENGING YOUR BELIEFS

“How are you of a belief if you’ve never challenged the belief?” The above photo that I am using to describe beliefs being challenged does not only extend to religion, but other areas of interest as well. Though religion is a big part of beliefs in our society. Our religious beliefs have shaped how we write laws, design policy, rear children, joining together in marriage, and even the consumption of our diets. But how many of us challenge our beliefs?Read more

BLACK AND PROUD: THE DIFFICULTY IN “BEING BLACK” WHILE BEING BLACK.

“Do you ever feel like it’s hard being you?” “Oh, it’s too Black!” “You don’t act Black!” These are a couple of the phrases I’ve heard in my life regarding to my ethnicity. Trying to stay true to yourself is difficult when you are an African American. Because to the White men and women, you’re too Black. And as it pertains to Black people you’re not Black enough. I have had to deal with this tug of war since childhood,Read more
