Reminder for the Entrepreneurs, Dreamers, Doers, Feelers, Lovers...You!



How can you lose your song..
When you have sung it for so long?
How can you forget your dance, your dance..
When that dance is all you ever had?

It must be, it must be true
You can't separate the two..
Oh no, you can't
It's impossible to do..
Just like the salt in the stew
Oh my, it's all a part of you..
One thing that life cannot do
It can't take your song from you

So when life brings a chance, a chance
For you to give your part, to give your part away
Don't just stand there feeling scared
Don't be afraid
'Cause there could be a treasure right there


Now listen, listen to THE truth
It does not matter, doesn't matter what you do
Still gonna be you
Just like the salt in the stew
Yeah, it's all A part of you
And one thing, the one thing that life cannot do
It can´t take your song from you

Life can't take it, you don't give it
Life can't take it

It can´t take your song from you

Shut Up already about Beyonce's womb



As a woman, I can recall the fear of infertility lingering over my head as early as my teenage years. No, I wasn't trying to have kids at that age, but I knew even then that the inability to have them when the time came would hurt me to my core. If Im honest I still think about it too much today, even though Im still not trying to have any. According to the CDC's website, recent studies show that 12% of women ages 15-44 suffer with infertility. Thats just over 7 Million women struggling to conceive or carry a baby full term. I personally know women who have lived through miscarriages, or years of trying to conceive. It's a painful experience. It is the fundamental characteristic of womanhood to create, nurture, and birth. Young, old, black, white, rich, poor..as a woman the womb is the great equalizer. She's a part of our power as a woman. To reach a point of wanting to bring forth life, building up all of the excitement that comes with a newborn baby, only to have it stripped from you can be crippling to say the least.

MUST WATCH: Actress Ashley Judd Delivers Powerful Spoken Word Piece At Women's March on Washington! GO OFF!



I havent been blogging much lately, but I couldn't let this moment go by without doing so. Today marks an exceptional day in herstory when women (and men) all over the world (literally) are marching in protest to the inequalities that we face every day. The Women's March on Washington is happening in DC just one day after the new President took office. That is no coincidence! Trump and his disregard for the woman is the fuel behind many of the fires igniting in DC today!
