I'm at the church I actually grew up in. Possibly the Blackest place in my world. And it makes sense why the churches I was forced into felt so foreign and not for me. They feel too sterile. That's what it is. The expressive Black church is much more organic. If we need to stop … Continue reading It makes sense now! – Church Thoughts
Chill out for a second. Lynona translation: Stop worrying about how steps 2-15 are going to get done, you need to focus on step 1. Do what you're supposed to do and everything else will naturally and magically fall into place. But you have to do what you're supposed to do.

Let me start off by saying that the past year of my existence hasn't been pleasant except for very specific and short pockets of time. I had an idea of the goals I was going to accomplish and literally did none of them. Insert face palm here. I went to Denver for my birthday. And … Continue reading 23, Denver, & 24

Refrain from reaching out and caressing a strand. Just don't do it. Because apparently we still need to say this to … Continue reading About This Sweatshirt . . .
Umm... let me start off by saying that I'm in a very sensitive place right now because I'm just a sensitive human being. There is a 99% chance I'm forehead deep into my feelings at any given point. These can be good or bad feelings or just pondering feelings in general, but I be in … Continue reading Tarot. Source. And all that good stuff.

I'd advise against trying to fit me into your tiny box of who you think I should be, just to avoid future disappointment.

Confession time: I'm not really good at standing up or speaking up for myself. I can do it for others with no problem. My baby sister, friends, children, etc. but me? Eh. Not my strongest skill. And speaking up about my inner thoughts, emotions, or shadow work? Unless you're an energy worker, forget it. I'm … Continue reading Confession #18
Hi, yeah, this is going to be a ride. This is your disclaimer.
