Terror, Fright, Horror, Alarm, Nervousness, Unease, and the list goes on and on.

These are all words that describe FEAR!

Fear: An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

I wrote about my experience with fear awhile back, and I’ve come to realize that fear is a journey.

Even after you decide to face it, you become overtly aware that fear has a lot tricks up its sleeve.

I’ve come to realize that fear is the silent and deadly killer to dreams and aspirations.

Are You In The Fight?

Happy Thursday!!!

In 1991, at the age of 20, I attempted to join a sorority; being a part of this sorority meant more to me than anything.

However, the damage had been done; that traumatic event changed my life.

So for 22 years I haven’t had any meaningful involvement with ANY women’s organizations (including the sorority). Every time I’m asked to join one of these organizations I quickly reply any number of convenient excuses: “I’m too busy”, “I don’t have the money”,  “I’m in too many things already”, “It’s not God’s will” (imagine that, blaming God!). I have offered any and every excuse known to avoid becoming involved with any group that has the potential to produce more pain. But this weekend God said, “Enough is Enough!” Continue reading
