Tomorrow

The first day … BIRTHDAY !! Started the day thinking about all the things I didn’t get finished in my thirties or in my 40 to 40. The blogs I needed to finish. The scripts I didn’t get done. The ideas still floating out there. Ran some errands. Trying to catch up from the amazing,…

20 Something, 30’s, Atlantic City Vibes

Day 36-40 //WRAPPED I’ve listed things from both of these decades. Not in any chronological order…just as they came to me. 20 or Something Tenacity prophesy Dr Elaine Waller, women’s conference, received a direct prophesy from Dr. Waller. She looked directly at me, in the crowd of about 50 women, at the altar, and said…

Widen Your Lens

Day 35 After fussing and having a pity party for myself, it hit me. After feeling bad about something in my life not being the way that I thought it should be, it made sense. After all, I have done everything that I should’ve done. I deserve for it to be that way. I’ve been…

Zero Percent Chance

Day 33- 34 What do you do when you are told there is “zero percent chance” of that happening? Told you are in the very small percent that it doesn’t work for? Told you are too old? Told that your chances, even as small as they are, are shrinking by the day? Told to never…

Muscle Memory

Day 31 and Day 32 Sitting in the ER, the ultimate destination for a Father’s Day, Jiornee holds the heating pad against the left side of her neck. An hour earlier, she woke up complaining of not being able to move her neck. Then her arm going numb. After some probing she revealed her newfound…

Seven Languages!

Day 30 Headed out to meet up with some family at a local lounge. When I say local, around here, that’s anything less than 1 hour to DC. His name was Eyob, our Lyft driver. Part of why I enjoy taking Lyfts is because I love hearing people’s stories of where they’ve come from and…

Just Tired? – Day 30

Maybe it’s because I’m tired. I hope that’s what it is. Because again, I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing and that I’m not supposed to be here. It’s so weird. Doing homework tonight, just reading, and I felt like I barely understood what I was reading. I felt stupid. Like why does…

Reach Back – Day 29

MTR calls them “Reach-Back Partners.” I call her a gift from God. Another pocket of sunshine that I asked for, prayed for. I met Jasmine at Central BBQ today. Never been to Central BBQ but heard it was one of THE places to eat here in Memphis. The food was cool. The atmosphere was cool….

Find That One Thing – Day 28

I found that one thing. What I learned, just now, is that it’s important to find that one thing after a big transition. I’ve been freaking out, often, since I’ve been here in Memphis. Wondering if I really made the right decision, can I really teach high school students English, will I ever feel like…

Today….It’s ME!

Day 27 -Day 29 Before flying was as common as it is now, when we would pass the airport, my mom would say, “Look. Today, someone is flying somewhere on a vacation or to visit someone. How exciting!” ┬áSadly, it was never us. We didn’t fly for the first time until in our twenties. Nevertheless,…
