and then God speaks

So I write about the inner man speaking and if not a few minutes later, God has his say on a situation. Door slammed shut. Now the door was closed but I entertained opening it up probably out of boredom, I guess. Almost immediately, God was like, NO. Words were said that sealed the deal and that is done.


That season is over.

There is another friendship I'm still wondering about. I don't know the reason for it just yet. As much as I TRY to close that door, its still open. I guess I need to stop trying to close it and wait for God speak on it.

All of this is vital because for us introverts, friends, lovers and just people in general are powerful energy sources that can drain us. Being selective is important. I really like only having a small group of people in my sphere at a time otherwise I feel like I have a vacuum attached to my soul and the life is being sucked out of me. HA....then I have to go sleep for a day just to be rejuvenated. Gotta listen to inner man. I know the one particular friendship will play itself in whatever way God wants it to play. I need to be patient and let him handle that.

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

Social Media: Keeping it Real

Social Media is an interesting creature. ONLINE: We're all so brilliant. We're all so healthy. We all are so religious. We love our mothers. We are perfect parents. Well, I'm here to tell ya, not me. I'm flawed. I'm quirky. I don't like to go to places where there's a lot of people. Quiet is cool. Me and God fight. Me and my daughter just had a horrible two years but we're back being where we should be. I've been physically unhealthy for the past two years and it was causing some depression. I couldn't figure it out. I don't like to be  deep, every damn day. I know what I know and there's a whole lotta stuff I'm clueless about. I'm a patient friend but I can shut you out without reason. I'm working on me.

 I think Social Media is missing a dose of realness and regular. I'm down for folks working to obtain their goals and doing it out loud. I get it. I know that it can help others. I'm just con…
