24 Things That Annoy Me

In a previous post I spoke about People Who Annoy Me. In this post I will speak about several things that have annoyed me. The list below is comprised of things I have encountered daily as well as over time.
  1. Bugs...All of them .
  2. People who wait to get to the turnstile to look for their metrocard.
  3. People who do not say please or thank you. 
  4. When someone who is not smelling so fresh stands in front of or near me.
  5. When male family members and/or friends leave the toilet seat up.
  6. People who cannot think for themselves.
  7. Parents who only feed their children fast food. #learntocook
  8. Parents who do not keep their promises 
  9. People who concoct elaborates stories in their minds and they believe they are true.
  10. When I say Good Morning and the occupants in the room do not respond.

A Rainbow of My Own

While sitting in the middle of my bed after waking up for the second time today, guess what I saw on my bedroom wall? A rainbow. Before you ask, no there was nothing in my window and there was nothing on my television stand that allowed any sort of reflection. I was baffled and amazed. Yet I continued to stare at it until it faded. I believe it was God's way of getting my attention. His way of communicating and relaying his message to me.
There have been days when life seems to get the best of me. I have so much on my mind. It seems as though it is constantly racing. It never slows down or stop. As a result, I often have sleepless nights. There have been times when I wanted to give up which was the easiest thing to do. However, I know that quitting is never an option and not the example I want to set for my two brown girls. I know it is only because of God's grace that my strength grows and I can move forward.
I often pray and talk to God. However, I have been praying and tal…

Who Do You Identify With In The Sea Of Life?

While attending Medgar Evers College, I was introduced to the worlds renowned author Ms. Iyanla Vanzant. My public speaking professor began each class with a daily meditation from Acts of Faith which was authored by Ms. Vanzant. Eventually, I purchased this book and a few others. Years later, I continue to read the Acts of Faith.

While sitting at my desk, I turned to today's meditation and my eyes made it's way to the bottom of the page. The message stated "I know who I am in the sea of life." After reading it, I reversed it and asked myself two questions. "Do you know who you are in the sea of life?" "Who do you identify with in the sea of life?"

My eyes scrolled back to the top of the page and I began to read today's daily meditation. As I am reading, I realize I have encountered almost every fish that was mentioned. This made me think about the people I have crossed paths with in the past, as well as, in the present. It also caused me to th…

She Did It Without Him

For the past two weeks, Nyasia has been preparing for this day. She had practice every day after school from 6pm -7:30pm and two Super Saturday rehearsals from 9am-1pm. This rehearsal includes the marching band and her dance mates who only attend the performing arts program after school and on Saturdays. During this rehearsal, the entire performing arts program and the band practice the routine together. Today is the day. It is one of the most important days of her life. Nyasia spent all her time rehearsing afterschool and out home. She along with her bandmates from The Brooklyn United Marching Band (BU) performed at the Nets vs Knicks halftime show. This was her first time performing at such a large venue. She was excited and scared at the same time. I was thrilled to be there to support her and provide her words of encouragement and comfort during our commute to the venue. 
The call time was at 11:30am. I awoke at 7:30am to prepare myself. At 8:30am I begin preparing, checking and …
