STAND IN YOUR TRUTH

Growing up, I got familiar with a saying in my mother tongue about the integrity of pictures and how what you see is what you get but our current reality is far from that opinion. We live in a time where almost everything, from our appearance to our speech, is cloaked with deception. There seems to be a growing culture ... Read More »

YOU CANNOT BE CARELESS IN SPEECH

Dear Sista, Let’s talk about the content and nature of our spoken words once again. I’m quite particular about this issue because, naturally, we ladies tend to talk excessively. Trust me, it’s all in our genetic makeup. However, research has proven that as ladies, what we say (our speech) is usually controlled by how we feel (our emotions)). This is ... Read More »

Dear Sista, Thank you for reading and responding to my last letter. We made it! It’s a new year and as usual you must be bombarded with tips on what you must do and how you must live to experience a better year.

THE FECUNDITY OF EFFORT

Not knowing, earlier and divinely, what path in life will bring me to the fulfillment of purpose once bothered me a lot, especially because I have friends whose parents received prophecies about them before they were born. For some, their parents received clear instructions about them and their assignments during conception while others were given divinely allocated names that will ... Read More »

Movement, Newness, Spice, Flavor… It’s Your Call. Just Keep It FRESH!

something new

Every morning (or so), I wake up with excitement and the thought of something new. Mind you, these thoughts are not always grandiose and remarkably innovative, or necessarily rule-breaking, but they’re usually something different that works for me. At times, it’s as simple as eating something different or cooking my meals using a different approach or switching my bath sponge ... Read More »

LET LOVE FIND YOU

let love 1

This piece is a timely memorial to all the gorgeous women across generations who stood their grounds till they were found, and a reminder to the young women weary of the wait and particularly those who have bought into the erroneous dictates of currents trends- civilization- globalization- westernization-Americanization- or preferably, “errornisation”. (Check out Who needs tradition? Not me!)   I ... Read More »

Who needs tradition? Not me!

no-limits1

Rebellious and out of place? Well, meet the emerging me. Honestly, these days, to pick up the pen is to unleash the rebel in me. And believe me, I have tried various- several- different containment strategies but none has worked so far. I’ve tried to train it, tame it, suppress it, choke it, drown it, I even put a lid ...

WHEN PASSION COOKS…

when pass

When passion cooks the entire nation perceives the aroma. Passion, zest, zeal, whatever you choose to call it, is the needed ingredient for the preparation and successful execution of our visions and dreams in life. Any engagement that is short of passion leaves us lethargic, doleful and miserable. I counsel myself everyday never to engage in projects that I am not ... Read More »

GETTING THE RESPECT YOU DESERVE

respect

I hear people say it and frankly, I used to say it too. “People don’t respect me as much as they should”. That was my line, yours may only be similar. Bottom line, we want the same thing; respect. It would be nice to get noticed by people especially those you care about. It would be nice for them to ... Read More »
