You were not born to live a mediocre life.

Oprah Winfrey said if first and best, “do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do”. My question to you is, will you be doing what you have to do for the rest of your life or will you commit to living out your full purpose for being on this earth? Tonight’s post is going to be about living a mediocre life, something NONE OF US were put on this earth to do. So many of us fall into the trap of working to live instead of living out our dreams and letting the work you put in to live out your purpose pay the bills. Are you afraid you’ll fail? Chances are in the beginning you just might but as long as you know your true purpose for being on this earth, you’ll make it to the top in

Control is an Element of Weakness and Insecurity

Tonight's post is going to be yet another gut check moment. I want you to think about this question before you answer it. How much do you love yourself ? Seriously... HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE YOURSELF ?! If you answered "a lot" then you'd better be prepared for what the rest of this post has to offer because you might just realize that you actually DON'T love yourself as much as you think you do. I'm going to give you a bit of background to this post, that way you can better understand the point that is being made. Most people THINK that they know me but most people only know the assumptions that they make of me. For example, I am known for always being "too real". Often times the people I get c

How to be a FRIEND

I'm going to begin tonight's post with these words...SISTERHOOD IS IMPORTANT. So often we convince ourselves that we don't need female friends, that all females are fake, or that male friends are easier to have. All of those things are so far from the truth. Think about it, can you talk to to your male friends about why your period is lasting longer than usual this month? Can you ask your male friend how he stopped crying over his ex? Maybe, but for the most part there really are certain things that you just cannot talk to males about. All females are not fake and you do actually need a few genuine ones in your life believe it or not. Of course you can talk to God but it truly does something

Is she really your Friend ?

When we are young it is easy to call someone your friend because there isn't much to be expected from an individual accept for the ability to come outside and play or show up to the birthday party. As we get older, that changes. I'm writing this post because I learned the hard way that not everyone is your friend, sis, or even your best friend. As women we naturally want to have friends and a lot of them, but you must get real with yourself sis, it is rare that every girl that you call a friend is REALLY a friend. Think about it , how many people know the REAL you? Now think about why that number is most likely small. In most cases you don't allow someone to know the real you because they ha

Letters to God Series -- Letter 1

Dear God, It's me, stubborn, know it all, "spiritual gangsta", Imani. It's been awhile since I genuinely spoke to you and I have to admit, I'm ashamed. It seems like ever since I got my degree I said, "okay God, I got it from here". I replaced praying to you with meditation and I tried to create my own religion but it just didn't work. I realize I may be confused but I do know one thing, YOU ARE REAL. I'm writing this letter because it's the easiest way for me to get my thoughts out and I know that you are listening to the words I'm writing. Ever since completing my #1 goal (graduating college) it seems like things went downhill instead of uphill and although I've stayed as positive as I cou

Soul Sista -- Do you have one ?

Okay ladies, let's start off by getting the disclaimer out of the way. THIS IS A GUT CHECK POST. A lot of us think that we have people that we call our "best friends", "sister", "bestie", "friend forever" but in reality they do not actually live up to what that title means. It is so important to be able to decipher whether or not someone is the person you think that they are to save yourself future hurt. So ask yourself this question, "is this really my best friend?". WHY THE TERM "SOUL SISTA" ? In reality we are all brothers and sisters but some people come into our lives and GENUINELY change it forever. You outgrow certain friends but you would never outgrow your soul sister. Your soul sis
