She’s Gotta Travel

~I travel just to see another side of myself. Who can I be outside of my country?

~ Daring

~ Independent

~ Freedom

~ Exhilarating

~ Exhalations

I have traveled to domestic destinations on someone else’s dime. Even my first time traveling internationally to the Dominican Republic, was not on my dime.

But when I got a taste of the beauty and that bliss, I could not hardly contain myself. Like what have I been missing? Attention like this? I just could not resist.

I evolved into another person it seemed. Dreaming of fantasies I had once dreamed. Connecting with someone who fell in love with me. Not knowing the consequences of giving him all of me.

Places I would not go, I went.

Things I would not do, I did.

People I would not see, I saw.

A love I would not normally love, Yes, I loved.

I travel just the way I want to. My rules, my money, my time. Just the way I want it.

And I damn sure ain’t nobody’s property.

Life beat me up yesterday, but it didn’t knock me out completely. I am alive, and blessed to be among the living. 

My deepest sympathy goes out to the victims and their families in Alexandria, VA.  It’s a shame we can’t be safe amongst our own people of this great nation. 

On a positive note!  I am encouraged to finish my upcoming book, I still have more work to do so please be patient with me. This is a self-publishing piece from my personal journal. 

My best critic read my book last night and here is her review!  Thanks Mother!  I Love You! 

“Made it to chapter 41 with 4 pages of notes. I’m really enjoying it. It’s well written, spiritual, funny, honest and very sweet and loving like God made you. You are his unique creation. Living and walking in your truth. I’m proud to call you mine. You have blessed me beyond words. ❤️ goodnight 💤” ~@joybabygran

Anywhere Fabulous 

Often, you should stop what you’re doing, pick a flight somewhere fabulous, book it, and prepare yourself for takeoff. And when you get on that plane, just exhale and leave your burdens in the clouds! 🇺🇸✈️🇩🇴🌹❤️💞

The perfect birthday gift


His gifts are not material. He was always a mystery to me. I was demanding, even sabotaged the friendship and yet he kept trying. Standing firm in who he was.

Things I thought I should have with him, he taught me something different.

His perfect gift to me is his heart.
