We read books, spend hours reading quotes on Instagram and Pintrest, or watch “Guru” videos to help guide … Continue reading My Destiny? How do I get there?
Dear Summer: Thanks for an epic ending… I moved to Central Florida seven Summers ago. We have the beaches, Cinderella’s castle, great resorts and all that good stuff.

My Dad has this phrase that he used to quote to me every time I asked to go to a party or hang with friends back in the day. He would say (in a stern Jamaican voice): “Not every door bell ring yuh must answer.” In other words, it was a “no, you ain’t going,” “you better … Continue reading Ding Dong: Answering and Closing Your Own Doors
