Self-care for women shouldn't be optional!

As women, we care for our children, our partners, our homes; we tend to our jobs, our business, our pets, and the list goes on. We are constantly pouring into other people and other things. If you're not practicing self-care, that cup is going to run out before you know it. 

We've all taken a nap or just taken a step back and felt completely guilty. But why? We need to rest and r...

Whether we want to admit it or not, kids are dating a lot earlier now than when we were kids. We're discussing a pretty heavy topic that honestly, should be talked about more...Teen Dating Violence.

According to the Teen Dating Violenc...

We are all familiar with the traditional marriage vows: "I, Sasha take thee, Richard, to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part."

But have you really thought about the "in sickness and in health" part? Like REALLY thought about it. What if your spouse had a stroke and requi...

A lot of us were brought up totally different than we are bringing up our own kids. Some of us were in church faithfully, every week while others...not so much.

How are you approaching religion with your family? Did you have this conversation with your partner before you had children of your own? How they would be brought up. If they would attend church. Which religion they would practice.

We can't speak for everyone but studies ...

Have you ever wondered why friendships as women are so hard to establish and maintain?

Think about this, research shows that in our mid-twenties, friendship circles shrink significantly because our priorities shift. Some women are getting married and starting their family, while others are enjoying the single life or focused on their career.

Additionally, women put a lot of weight on their friendships with other women. A friends ci...

 We all have that one friend that KEEPS a man. She always has a new boo or love interest. Then we have that friend that stays single...and you can't quite put your finger on why.

Have you ever considered that some women may choose to be INTENTIONALLY SINGLE?

They don't want to be with anyone else.

They enjoy not dealing with the drama that comes along with dating.

They want to focus on themself.

They want to heal from past traum...

For nearly 3 decades, the "Negro Motorist Green Book" provided black people with guidance on safe places to eat and sleep when they traveled in the United States during the Jim Crow era. 

While things may have slightly improved since that time, racism is still very much alive. 

As a result, we have to take additional precautions to make sure that we and our families are safe when we travel. And that's not just in the Unit...

Made fun of because you are "too light" or "too dark"?   "Skin color matters because we are a visual species and we respond to one another based on the way we physically present. In today's society, skin color has become a loaded signifier of identity and value".

As a parent, it can be draining to deal with our kids' frustration, emotions, and energy. But have you ever considered that they act out because they do not have the words or reasoning to express how they are feeling?
