#WCW — One Can Chase a Thousand

#WCW — One Can Chase a Thousand

Note: I wrote this in 2015 and stored it in my drafts. However, it’s Wednesday, and maybe someone needs this. Anyone who knows me knows how much I care about my family. They come second only to God in my heart. I leave my comfort zone for them, push limits and break barriers to help … Continue reading

I Am LaMonique.

I Am LaMonique.

I did something today, and I couldn’t wait to tell you about it. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, and for that I apologize. I’ve had a lot to say. I’ve actually been overflowing with words, thoughts and crazy feelings. There’s so much going on, Sweetie Pies. I honestly didn’t know … Continue reading

The Beyonce Blessing

The Beyonce Blessing

Disclaimer: I don’t claim to be Beyoncé, and my boyfriend is definitely not the guy in the picture. I wasn’t trying to send him a message. Please don’t inbox either of us. This is a closed relationship, and we like it that way. We’re good. I came across this meme last night, laughed and said, “Thank … Continue reading

Going All In and Finding Freedom

Going All In and Finding Freedom

If I’m honest with myself, and God knows I hate when I have to be, I know that I haven’t been fully committed to much in my life. I’m a girl who loves options — an escape plan, a new boss, even another lover to replace a current one if things don’t work out. At the first … Continue reading

The Battle for My Voice

The Battle for My Voice

Sweetie Pies, for the past year or so I have been engaged in a nasty spiritual battle. I have mentioned it to those closest to me in passing, but this is the first time I have thoroughly discussed it with anyone, although my pastor (who is truly connected to God) picked up on it several months … Continue reading

This is for The Climbers

For the past few days I have fought the urge to write. I kept thinking that I would get around to it as soon as I finish this project, get the kid on track, and create some semblance of normalcy with my income. All of these things are still in progress, as am I. Yet, … Continue reading

If I Bake the Cake, Then I’m Going to Eat It

If I Bake the Cake, Then I’m Going to Eat It

Sweetie Pies, I’ve been getting myself in shape. I have a great workout class that I attend three times a week, just completed an Ab Challenge with several friends via Facebook, HipHopAbs with Shaun T, and the choreography for my play last weekend. Since I’m doing all of this, I’ve also been striving to make … Continue reading

The Narrow Road

The Narrow Road

I drive along this curvy country road each day as I take my son to school. The curves are sharp; the road narrow. I never know what awaits on the other side. I especially felt this because of the rain, dark clouds, and overall dreariness of today. But in that moment, I felt the presence … Continue reading
