Get Ready to Get UNCOMFORTABLE

I know, right? What an interesting picture to use for a piece of writing that is supposed to uplift, empower and ignite a strong fire in you. Yeah, I know. THIS isn’t that piece. At least not at first. Prepare to get uncomfortable. EXTREMELY uncomfortable! Why? Because your comfort zone is the place of enslavement that has held you back long enough.…

Musings of Girl Who Got Her Butt Kicked by Life (but She Fought Back)

It was 6:30 P.M. I was uncomfortable because I usually know exactly what I want to talk about. I usually know what I want to say to you because this writing? This is liberating. This is fulfilling to be able to share my heart with you and to be able reach out to you through the strokes of the keyboard that…

You don’t want anyone to see your pocket-book and always- ALWAYS wear clean underwear because you never know if you will wind…

Win WITHIN

The idea seemed harmless enough- THEN. As I straightened my black and white polka dot dress after standing up, I found myself uncomfortably positioned between a young mother holding her uncontrollably crying baby and an elderly man who smelled like Old Spice and Ben Gay- undoubtedly wearing his Sunday best. We all turned toward the center aisle, just like we…

OUTGROW THOSE SHOES!

Somethings are for a season and producing TPP blog was seasonal. It was a pleasure to be able to help a struggling writer find his voice and provide the tools he needed to create a space in the internet world. Nothing is more rewarding than being able to help someone find their way and in that, you have helped others…
