BOOK: FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED SUICIDE WHEN THE RAINBOW WAS ENUF – by Ntozake Shange, changed my life. A must read!
Have you ever woke up and had that “should’ve” “could’ve” “would’ve” feeling. An opportunity came up or perhaps you promised to contact someone who could help you out?
The thought swirls around in your head again and again until eventually it gets replaced with new regret.
Life is one big board game, and depending on the decision that you make, you can go in one direction or the other. We are always moving toward our goals or away from our goals. No gray area. It’s that simple.
BOOK: THE BLUEST EYE by Toni Morrison also changed my life. Toni Morrison is my favorite author. She is so sensitive and in tune with the human pysche and so crafty with the English language. I love all of her books but this is my favorite.
I found out about an awesome opportunity about a month ago. Several friends and readers of my blog encouraged me to participate.
Writing has always been my first love, always. So why would I not dedicate the 2 – 3 hours necessary to inquire about the opportunity. The clock was ticking. I looked up and the deadline for entry was tomorrow. Why would I not participate? The worst thing that can happen is that I get a “no,” and all that means is that this particular opportunity wasn’t for me,
But one thing is for sure. I’ll wake up tomorrow with a smile on my face. I’m living my philosophy and I won’t have any regrets! The best way to predict the future is to create it, and that is exactly what I am trying to do!
BOOK: WHEN CHICKENHEADS COME HOME TO ROOST by Joan Morgan was my favorite nonfiction book that I read when I was in High School. I was amazed that Joan was so candid and she wrote about her passion – HIP HOP! She was one of the first women to write about the culture before it garnered academic respect and I love her “sistagirl” writing style.
