Sometimes they do. More often, however, they do not. A woman always knows what she needs to knowRead More

TIPS FOR MANAGING LIFE’S CRISIS'S
*Attitude Of Gratitude
“What you pay attention to grows stronger.”
When you feel your life is spiraling out of control, be gentle with yourself. Allow yourself to mourn, cry, vent and be sad. Yet don’t stay there! Make a point to seek out that which you are grateful for in your life. Start small but start! Speak gratitude into the Universe. Learn to be thankful for what you already have, while you pursue all that you want. There is always something to be grateful for; it is your responsibility to find it!Read More
I make it my business to get my “work out” on! I enjoy running, lifting weights, and trying all types of classes with the intention of keeping me “tight and right”. I enjoy the discipline required to physically transform my body to what I say I want.
During my work out process, no matter what I’m doing, I must begin and end the session with stretching. In the spiritual community, in order to advance to the next level you must stretch yourself as well. Take a look at these four principles on stretching and how we can extract spiritual tools from physical activities.Read More
When you talk to people who have had the audacity of dreaming beyond their circumstances, beyond what they see or heard, beyond self imposed and imposed limitations, you will notice that they all have one thing in common...
At one point on their journey, they had to convince themselves that they were worth it!
I'm realizing that I am a bit old school in my marriage.
I try to be available as much as possible.
I try to be the safe place in the storm.
Create a cozy home for him to lay his head after slaying dragons for us.
I cook...I mean, I'm not burning it up like big mama...but I COOK!
Perfection is Bullsh&t! And I’m not taking it anymore! There is no such thing and I believe we should sign a petition to ban the very word from the dictionary. Let’s sign a petition to take it out!
The very nature of being a human being is a messy proposition. Humans are designed to learn from mistakes, missteps, and perceived failures. That withstanding, the desire for perfection goes against the basic tenant of being a human being.
When you're tempted to compare yourself to other folks...
To YOU when you started!
If no one has told you today...

I speak your name!!!!
I am the living demonstration of my mother, my mother's mother, her mother... And all the women who invested in me, loved me, corrected me and showed me how to BE woman!Read More

When I was growing up in Oakland, Ca, I was often asked the question, "Tiffany, what do you want to be when you grow up?".
I would reply with confidence and sass, "I want to be a Luther Vandross backup singer!"
I can't hold a tune if my life depended on it! But who was I to mess up the video I had in my head with a little truth like that! I wanted to dress up, put on a big wig and look beautiful and SANG! Also, I would marry Jackie Jackson and have boy and girl twins... and also be a Oakland Raiderette Cheerleader part time. It was simple!
Wouldn't you rather BE fine than PRETEND to be fine?
It starts with taking off the mask and revealing and acknowledging the parts of you that are crying out to be healed! You get to choose the narrative of your life!
Because the truth is...
the only people who don't want you to speak your truth are the people who are living a lie themselves.
Unless we are willing to heal ourselves, we will be toxic to EVERY-one and EVERY-thing we love. Period.
We will continue to attract OUR toxicity back to us in the form of chaos, drama, pain and isolation. What we hold in consciousness will be reflected back to us as our experiences.
Social media captures the best of our lives and that is truly a beautiful thing!
Yet... my life is REAL! Meaning there are days when my life magical! It's a snap shot of joy, abundance and love!
And there are days when I am tired, anxious and hard on myself.Read More
