AWESOME Reminders.

AWESOME. Sometimes you just have seemingly unmerited and yet absolutely undeniable favor show up in your life. Despite the challenges and obstacles you might face, when you’re not sure yet how things are going to turn out, somehow that silver lining of promise seems to always come through (and at the most unexpected times). As…

Take it ALL higher.

HIGHER: A good friend just called me with the most inspirational message I’ve probably heard all year – and out of the blue at that. “Everything needs to go higher!” Everything’s too low, we’ve got to elevate some things. Our conversations. Our ideas. Our strategy. Our tactics. Our relationships. Our businesses. Our families. It reminded…

Invisible

I was just sitting here at Starbucks – busy, working on a couple of projects. Taking a couple of calls. This is right in the heart of midtown Atlanta – not far from the Botanical Garden or Piedmont Park. I’ve been to this Starbucks before and was just here for lunch with a friend a…

#MeToo …HOWEVER

#MeToo – HOWEVER….I am grateful to say that no one was EVER successful in “taking” anything, though one was a very close call (on the job, in broad daylight) which certain people in my life will remember. Thankfully and gratefully – he didn’t succeed that day (yes, of course I fought him – which, to my…

Principalities and powers

On my mind this morning regarding Charlottesville, the current state of America and our world. Be quite thoughtful about the motivations behind why people do what they do. It may enlighten a path toward solutions that can actually work. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers…

I tried an interesting social experiment recently for my bday…

It seems every time you have a birthday, the social media world has evolved at the speed of lightning in the course of just 12 months and the EXPLOSION of bday responses you get can come differently towards you each year. This year, something with Facebook’s algorithm / settings changed and instead of writing on…

The Fitbit Challenge is ON!!!!! (The key? Incovenience Rules)

Don’t pull me into a real challenge and think I’m not gonna win!! Yes, I’ve been off my Fitbit game for a minute, but that’s because I was on to yoga for a hot sec (literally, hot yoga. Whew.) Some friends of mine pulled me into a real challenge this week with REAL incentives involved (losers…

Do Something That Matters Today: a Productivity Tip I LOVE.

You’ve heard it all before and that’s because it’s true – we often get far too caught up in “busy work” and it often feels like we’re doing so much because we’re so busy. Truthfully, when we think about it (and we already know this): that’s often not the case. So how do we get…

The Ambulance Ride

Originally posted on Just exploring life:
I have no idea why I was so polite to the EMT’s. For some reason, it was important to me to maintain a very calm and pleasant exterior while on the inside, I was contemplating pushing them out of the way and putting the pedal to the metal myself.…

Today’s ATL Women’s March – why we did it

Today, against threats of severe thunderstorms and seriously torrential rain in the early afternoon, tens of thousands of women, men, children, families, friends descended upon downtown Atlanta to march. And millions more showed up in New York, DC, nearly every major city in the US in addition to Paris and several other global cities. But why? What did we…

Because MLK Day is about SERVICE.

Say what you want about MLK Day – whether you have it off or on – the day should be about SERVICE. As an Alpha Kappa Alpha woman, the motto we live by is “service to all mankind.” While everyday is a great day to live this belief, there are few better than MLK Day….
