Democracy off the Rails

Wednesday started off in a positive note in the midst of the maelstrom of heartache and headache that the past year has been for a black person living in 45’s America. For those unplugged, yesterday Doug Jones won Alabama’s Senate seat after a highly contested battle against Roy Moore.

A Peace Prayer

Hey Papa!

I just wanted to reach out to you again asking for your mercy, grace, and blessings. I’ve talked to so many of my brothers and sisters in Christ and I’ve felt their pain. I’ve heard their struggles, and as the world gets darker, I’ve seen them start to lose hope.

A Simple Prayer

I pray that every person reading this has peace in their heart. May an all-encompassing stillness fall on them to ease their nerves and pain. My love abolish hate and fear. May calm settle their souls. May November bless each and everyone of you with prosperity, wisdom, strength, growth, and much more.

God Bless!

Turn Your Brightness Up!

What is Normal Anyway? (High Functioning Mental Illness)

I’m smart. I read well. I can do math at a high level. I’m talented in multiple fields of art, music, and communication. I understand conceptual problems with relative ease and enjoy good philosophical exercises. However, paperwork, emails, and essays give me anxiety. Missed text messages and interpersonal conflict can keep my mind tied up for hours. I’m a very high achiever, but I feel like I end up near success by accident. I have High Functioning ADHD.

Sailing through the Storm (Pt. 1)

Still water, untouched and unmoved, almost appearing as glass, reaching far beyond the horizon into the unknown. Clear blue skies enable you to see the shore and the wind feels good on your skin. Everything is perfect as you sail out to parts unknown. You can still close your eyes and envision the crowd of loved ones cheering you on as you set out for another quest. Life is good, until it isn’t.

Pray WITHOUT ceasing

I’ve been very transparent about my struggles on here. I even admitted that my posting schedule has dropped significantly because of these struggles. Yesterday, I was talking with a mentee about love, life, and everything in between. God and the concept of prayer came up. While encouraging him through my weakest moments, something I told him resonated with me. Continue reading “Pray WITHOUT ceasing”
