    Still Being a Good Girl?

    Still Being a Good Girl?

    We're still questioning what it means to be good. What did we learn, and what are we letting go, about being "good"?

    That Dirty Word: Submission

    That Dirty Word: Submission

    All this talk about submission and domination, alphas and betas. What is this about? What are our beliefs about what kind of woman makes a good friend, a good lover, a good mother...according to whom?

    Reappearing Acts

    Remember Terry McMillan's Disappearing Acts? When Zora surrendered her selfhood to Franklin? In what ways have you vanished and what's now your come-back plan? 

    Sit it Down!

    Sit it Down!

    We didn't come her to play; we came here to work. Literally. And many of us are still moving at lightning speed from dawn to dusk. Sister Tricia Hersey, found f the Nap Ministries, says "rest is revolution." And we believe her. Are you ready to stop rushing and grinding and begin to revel in rest? 

    Hot Body Summer

    Hot Body Summer

    We are calling out all the cover-ups, shawls and mumuus. Let's let go of the layered look and bring summer sunshine on the parts of our bodies we usually conceal in shame and body negativity. Why sweat in shapewear or wait for some fantasy body? Our skin deserves to glow- today. What area of your body will unveil and treat to a breeze and sun kiss?

Truth, No Lies!

I feel nourished and empowered by the conversations shared. I feel the strength and depth of intellect and social awareness that other platforms neglect just to promote ugly stereotypes and mental lethargy. Congratulations ladies, you are on the path less traveled, but it is the route of Excellence!!!
