Day 114/365: Burnout

Today I felt restless, bored and burned out. I have so much to do and have been doing so much—just grinding to get shit done, and I am so over it. I need a vacation, like a real one where you pack your bags for an extended stay and it requires that you hop on... Continue Reading →

Day 113/365: Raw

So my best friend and I have not spoken for months. Our last exchange was via text and it was not good. I saved the exchange so that I could revisit it and figure out a way to bridge the gap, but a month or so later my phone died and I had to get... Continue Reading →

Day 112/365: Unfazed

There are so many possible things that could have thrown me off my game today, including my health, but I simply was not fazed. I don't know if it was because I was too tired or what, but I was not pressed at all. I didn't feel pressured into service nor did I feel the... Continue Reading →

Day 106/365: Filtered

Sometimes it's hard to be objective through this colored lens that I view the world from. I'm not talking rose-colored lenses either. I'm talking about seeing the world in black and white. Mostly, how I as a black person get treated by a white world. I often give the world the benefit of the doubt... Continue Reading →

Day 105/365: Revival

When I checked in with myself about how I was feeling today, the word "revival" came to mind. I'm not sure why. I mean every day you wake up and start anew is a revival. Hell, even every minute. Maybe that's why. I was kind of out of sorts today and was not present and... Continue Reading →
