One Halo for Two People


Have you ever said…or heard someone say “I don’t deserve him/her” when trying to express appreciation for the other person?

What many people are trying to convey, is just that: appreciation.

Many people left the movie theaters with the same emotions….but the emotions many Africans felt were different. Not that Africans didn’t love the movie (are you kidding? we adored it)…just that it affected us differently than what you are hearing about in mainstream media. Read more

You Are a Good Person, But…


Have you ever met someone you liked…and maybe even started a relationship with, that had a “big but”? (Thank goodness I am spelling this out and not saying this. lol).
For real though. You meet this person and most things are good but they just have this area that just screams “red flag” on the inside.

Meeting (and Keeping) Quality People in Your Life


By now, most people fundamentally understand the value of being surrounded by quality people. In fact, many people have it as a resolution for the year.

You’ve heard quotes like:
“Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are” OR “You are an average of your 5 closest friends”

But HOW do you do meet (and keep) these quality people in your life?
