What I’m Watching, Listening & Reading

What I’m watching: The New York Times started a video series called, Love. Pain. Regret. Six Stories About Becoming a Mother. The way they visually tell these heartwrenching stories is amazing. P.s. Have Kleenex on hand! What I’m listening to: HAIM’S new album, Something to tell You. What I’m reading: TIME’s January 29 Cover Story: The Marched. Now they’re Running. BONUS: I’m also mildly obsessed with Planet Earth 2 on Netflix. This world we live in is INCREDIBLE.

Phenomenal Woman

Phenomenal Woman Maya Angelou Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies. I say, It’s in the reach of my arms, The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me. I walk into a room Just as cool as you please, And to a man, The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees. Then they swarm around me, A hive of honey bees. I say, It’s the fire in my eyes, And the flash of my teeth, The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me. Men themselves have wondered What they see in me. They try so much But they can’t touch My inner mystery. When I try to show them, They say they still can’t see. I say, It’s in the arch of my back, The …

Boys. Men. Another Kind.

One of the best memories I have from 2017 is when I had the courage to ask Brian to move in with me. It wasn’t easy. The egotistical part of me was screaming to wait another year. My heart was telling me that it only made sense. He was at my place almost every day and I craved him when he wasn’t. “My” house quickly became “our” house and I was surprised at the ease of it all. We’ve lived together for a little over four months now and I’m realizing very fast that men literally don’t see the same things women do. They have to have a completely different set of lenses because things that push every little nuclear button (too soon?) in my body doesn’t even phase Brian; he doesn’t even see it! IM CONVINCED: MEN’S EYES SEE DIFFERENT THINGS THAN WOMEN’S EYES  Here’s a few examples: I leave pretty early in the morning and it’s still dark out. Our porch light is controlled from a switch inside. I turn it on when …

Here’s How I’m Making the Most of 2018

I’ve realized that each year, I create new years resolutions that are literally insane. I say I’m going to do a million things and become a completely new person because obviously, the one I was/am wasn’t good enough…? So. Weird. I love myself. I know I can always be a better person but I’m finally learning to set realistic, measurable goals. This year, I’m working on strengthening relationships personally and professionally. I’m putting my health, first and I’m going to be unapologetically myself online (and offline). So look forward to blogging more and focusing on growing my own writing narrative. I’ve outlined these things with strategic tactics to keep myself moving, always becoming a better version of myself. When I reflect on everything good, I’m certain they were all products of hard work. I’m going to get out what I put in. There’s no time to be lazy. I’m on the fast track to 30. I’m a ticking time bomb… and you are too. Are you being honest with yourself? How are you making the most of 2018?
