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, however, actually mean it. For them, it’s not about sounding romantic or being cute. For them, they are living it.
They truly believe deep down inside that they don’t deserve this person.

Wakanda – An African’s Perspective on Black Panther

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks, you’ve heard about the super dope Black Panther movie that just came out. (Spoiler Alert*** FYI there may be some spoilers)

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

Fear vs Caution in Life and Relationships

Fear vs Caution in Life and Relationships
Tony Robbins said it best. “Life is the dance between what we fear the most and what we want the most.”

I recently published an article on fear titled “Fear may be secretly destroying your life and relationships…See how and conquer it”. It explored the different ways fear creeps in and holds us back from our best relationships and lives.

Someone read the article and asked a very important question: “How does one balance between fear and being careful?”

As I thought about that, I started to get even deeper perspective on fear.

Here is what I have come to find out about the balance between fear and caution in life and relationships. Read more

Fear May Be SECRETLY Destroying Your Life and Relationships. See How and Conquer It!

Fear May Be SECRETLY Destroying Your Life and Relationships.

Fear is nasty. It doesn’t play fair with you and it is out to kill you. I don’t think I could have made that lighter. It uses every method available within itself to cripple you and make you miserable. It wants to make your relationships and your life suck and snuff the life out of you…..and that’s not even the scariest part…. Read more
