Catharsis

What is it called when you finally let go of someone? The moment where it clicks that they no longer serve a purpose in your life. The moment where the constant thought or wondering of what’s going to happen next doesn’t flood your mind on a consistent basis. The moment where your grudge no longer…

Expecto Patronum!!!

I had a moment the other day. One of those moments where I’m saying to myself, how am I going to do this? I was going to do what I usually and keep my frustrations, concerns and irritation to myself and just “figure it out,” but I something in my spirit told me: go talk to…

Letter to Myself

Dear 8 year old Tai, You might be wondering why your future self is contacting you. So don’t freak out! We’re good. But I do want to give you some words of encouragement. Cherish your friendships. They may not all last into your adult years but be good to the people that have your back…

Discipline

For the past week and a half I’ve been participating in a healthier, better eating challenge with two of my really good friends. Now mind you, I love food and I love consuming it. I love smelling it, I love cooking it and I love looking at it. I. just. love. it. So I bet…

Flag on the Play

Disclaimer: this is a parenting, venting but intended with love post Reader discretion is advised So lately, it’s felt like I’ve been a referee in a cage match. My son vs. my oldest daughter.

Wonderment

After church today, a young lady and I were conversing, while the kids were in the car, blasting the A/C, waiting for me, and she asked “I don’t know how you do it” And as I formed my mouth to give an explanation…I couldn’t. I, honestly, don’t know how I do it either. Seriously. Day…

Trust the Process

I’ve been in situations where I had the earthly right not to forgive someone. I had every right to stay angry with someone. I had every right to treat someone like they treated me. I had every right. How do you forgive though? This is a question that I asked myself plenty of times in…

Advancing

So last week, I caved and decided to buy my son a cell phone. Yes I’m probably the one parent who stalled until the very last second to bring my child into the technological world. (LOL). Honestly, I just wasn’t ready to let him go in that sense. I’ll explain. Obviously, I know what it’s like…

Tending

Has your life been a series of making something out of nothing? That phrase can be viewed from two different angles: turning something insignificant into something major or turning something negative into something positive. You see, more often than not we use that phrase for the former angle. We as humans have a tendency to make a big deal…
