Why I Write?

I have chosen now to put my writings out there for the world to see, hear, smell, taste, or touch, whichever tickles you most, because I have come to a place in my own life that I need help.  I no longer desire to #CONTROL my emotions.  My desire is now to effectively manage them.  In the past, my major means of #EXPRESSION was to put my emotions on paper not leaving my pain, anger, grief, anxiety and most of all depression the ability to fester or bottle up.  As a result of being overwhelmed by emotions and the life of a broken teenager…I through my pen and paper away.  I arrived at a place in my life where darkness & alcohol consumed me.  It would be almost a decade before a pen and I met on the battlefield again.

On the morning of February 2nd, 2014 -the day before my 25 birthday, I no longer wanted to be in that dark and lonely place consumed by those negative emotions and experiences.  In that moment I gave it all to the God of my understanding and began to walk by #FAITH.

It was not until July 20, 2014 that I made the decision and conscious choice to write again.  I realized that there is not a want but a need for #SOMEONE(S) to be voices for the communities they are apart of instead of just sitting back and saying nothing.

 *DISCLAIMER: This blog will not be a God rant because that is simply not how I am set-up.  However you can expect there to be things that I post or re-blog about the goodness of the God of my understanding.

    1. I thank you and appreciate your feedback.

      Waffles no matter the way they are cooked are just nasty in taste and texture. Growing up my mom would buy them and I would just let them sit in the freezer.

      No Bueno!!! 😛
