Social Media & The Pressure To Be Perfect

When I kicked off 2017, I made a pact with myself to make it my most honest year yet. I wanted to be truthful about how I felt and I wanted to put my integrity stamp on every decision made. For some of you, that may sound like an easy resolution to conquer. However, for…

Forgiveness Is Powerful

What can we learn about forgiveness? It is a question that continues to hit the core of our souls and hearts throughout our entire lives.

Avoiding Family Drama

The month of September officially kicks off a new season and the planning of that ever busy holiday travel schedule. I dare to ask – have you booked your tickets to fly home to see your family? For some of you, just the thought of traveling or being around family can increase your stress level…

I’m Gay, Who Do I Pray To?

I have been really open about my sexuality in my writing and on the E! Television shows I starred in. As an adult, it is very freeing for me to be my authentic self as much as possible—especially on such a public platform. I believe there is no way of truly connecting with people unless…

Friendship & Betrayal

Friendship to me is extremely important. It is a kind of relationship that most of us put our heart and trust into along with investing a lot of our energy in. I am not talking about the general acquaintances you would have with a neighbor or coworker, but that close bond you create with another…

Owning Your Words

Through all the years of growing up, I tried hard to be a positive person. Like with most of you out there, life has not always been easy, and at times that was very challenging. But more than that, I learned that there is a difference between being a positive person and pretending I am…

I’m Back

I know. It has been awhile, but I am back in action and looking to reconnect with all of you again. Social media has put all of us bloggers to shame with its latest and greatest updates. From fancy filters, 24 hour videos, to everything else in between – I dare to ask, are the…

When Searching For Love

I’ve noticed something about young women that has me bothered. I’ll get straight to the chase since you may be wondering why someone like me should be so bugged. Well, first let me say that I have sisters, cousins, nieces, and girl friends that are practically family members to me and when it comes to…

Lessons From Our Grandmothers

In mid-March, my boyfriend Nick’s grandmother died. The grieving is still harboring in our thoughts, the sound of her voice in our heads and the memory of her laying in her hospital bed still fresh in our minds. “Grandma” was very special to Nick and his family. She was also a very holy woman who…

What Happened To Social Media?

Ever since I was young, I always gravitated toward women with a strong voice that spoke up against societies norms and encouraged others to not just do better but – be better. From grade school to college, while other boys were doing reports on sports greats such as Babe Ruth and Michael Jordon, I was…

Don’t Hate On Love

I am a sucker when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Please forgive me for loving a day that is filled with chocolate heart boxes, cupid shaped cards, and stunning red roses. The balloons, the candlelit dinners, the lovey-dovey messages… it all totally gets my heart beating. I can fully admit that I turn to utter…
