Time to take it all off.

  It's that time of the month again. Time to go to the salon and get the wig flipped. As is usual, as of late, I am contemplating what would happen if I dropped the pretense that fake hair affords me.  What would happen if I stopped wearing wigs / weaves totally.  I would like … Continue reading Time to take it all off.

Walking the Walk

So many other clichés come to mind - practicing what you preach, take care of your own back yard before you tell someone else how to take care of theirs, etc.  They all mean the same thing, take care of your own business first.  I want to confess, I've been doing a lot of "do … Continue reading Walking the Walk

Beauty of a Woman Blog Fest, 2014 – This one’s for YOU!

Think of yourself naked.  Or, if you're somewhere you can do so and not be arrested, get naked and look at yourself in a mirror.  If you're like most women I know, you cringed at the thought and absolutely refused to do the act. All your (perceived) physical flaws reared their "ugly" heads; that inner … Continue reading Beauty of a Woman Blog Fest, 2014 – This one’s for YOU!

Hey – how ya doing?

So, here it is Saturday, and I'm taking a break from inventory (yes, at work) to jot a few lines.  I'll head off to grab some lunch, then come back and do my physical count.  After that, it's data entry, sending of the reports and I'm out to enjoy what will be left of the … Continue reading Hey – how ya doing?

Rest stop.

This started off as a post bemoaning being single.  How it’s tiring to have to make all the decisions, carry all the responsibility, and have no one to step in and be strong when you need / want to be weak.  All of this stemmed from having done what I thought was accurate budget planning … Continue reading Rest stop.

Love.

What's Love Got to do With it? What is Love? Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me...no more. Love in an Elevator. Love Stinks - yeah, yeah. You Give Love a Bad Name. I could do this for hours - writing down the names of songs I know and like with the word "love" in … Continue reading Love.

Ready? Set…

Well, I still have two plans to finalize before midnight tonight as tomorrow marks the first day of WORK on this year's achievements. I've got all but my Coaching marketing and my finance plans in place. Good thing I cancelled cable a week ago, eliminated a major distraction in doing so, which gives me more … Continue reading Ready? Set…

Setbacks aren’t what they used to be

Ah, The Satin Sheet Diva Experience - the act of creation involves a certain amount of destruction.  I was surprised at first, when a bit of destruction showed up in my life.  It came in the opening line on a piece of paper that was no doubt, mass-produced, and not aimed at hurting my feelings … Continue reading Setbacks aren’t what they used to be

Just so you know, I’m not avoiding you, I’m just having a “moment”

January is a “trigger” month.  Instead of a smell, taste or sound, I have whole months which trigger me into subconscious behavior.  My trigger months these days are November, January and February.  Used to be that they’d come and I wasn't consciously aware of how altered my behavior was; I’d be going along thinking I … Continue reading Just so you know, I’m not avoiding you, I’m just having a “moment”

So, here we are

Hmmmm.  Here we are, the start of another year.  I was thinking I should post something profound and highly poetic in honor of the new year but well, profound and highly poetic are definitely not words I would use to describe my writing. Moving and transformative maybe, but those other three - uh, yeah...not so … Continue reading So, here we are
