No, I didn’t move back to Cleveland…

Life has a sick way of knocking you on your ass all at once. The past month has truly been a series of unfortunate events, starting with my best friend losing a family member, only to be immediately followed by my mother’s rapid progression of her disease coupled with having to stay emotionally stable as…

Confessions of a Serial Relationship Partner

Life won again last week which resulted in having to postpone my blog post but despite life happenings, I’ve been going back and forth on this piece. Not that the original was bad, I just thought it came off AGGRESSIVE. However, I still stand by every single word and for that, we are continuing on…

Release the Broken Birds

I don’t know about y’all but I feel overwhelmingly bombarded with things that demand my attention on the daily and if there’s one thing I learned to always keep in check when my life seems to kick into hyper speed; it’s to always make sure that at no point am I compromising my peace. But…

My Name is Kayla, and I have Daddy Issues.

My dad’s birthday was last Thursday. He would have been 64 years old. The Los Angeles Rams couldn’t have received a better gift from Mr. Football, as I attribute their success to angels – obviously, than a trip to the Super Bowl. For those of you who know me, I didn’t grow up very close…

Another Trip Around the Sun

When I originally started this post, summer was just winding down and a cool breeze had just begun to greet me during my morning commute. Well, it’s now January 17, 2019, and there is a single-digit low predicted this weekend. Great. Clearly, time has gotten away from me but the motto of my life, better…

New Year, Same Me

GOOOOAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL. Does anyone else watch international soccer just to hear the announcer SCREAM “goal” with literally a thousand O’s? No? Alright, well, you’re missing out..and aside from the plural of this word, this is completely irrelevant to my post but I’ve reached the point where I’m very comfortable in my writing voice and y’all are…

5 Lies

Whether we own up to it or not, we all tell lies to ourselves. And despite the negative connotations associated with lying, not all lies are necessarily bad. Now, before you start thinking I live a life riddled with deceit, let me explain. I like to think the REASON behind a lie is what makes…

And then, you die.

With the passing of Thanksgiving, we are officially in full holiday mode. I hate to be a Grinch but this time of year has become challenging for me mostly because I’m reminded of how fragile life is. Many of us move through this season rushing to get the perfect gift or complaining about travel, completely…

…BECOMING…

On Tuesday night, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the opening night of Michelle Obama’s Becoming tour. As if that wasn’t an opportunity enough in itself, Oprah was the moderator and Y’all know how I love me some Oprah! Aligning with the release of her new book, Becoming, the conversation included stories of meeting…

Master.Mission.Mate

Intention (noun) – to have something in mind as a plan or purpose. Manifestation (noun) – an event, action, or object that clearly shows or embodies something. Intention and manifestation have been wellness buzzwords of 2018 and have served as the source of most of those “long post alert” IG captions. It seems as though…
